It gets old launching and recovering those jets too, most of them are from my squadron for training.

I just rock the euro plate in the windsheild, its not even drilled.

If you call it that, yes... you and VW's get me everytime...

I will say though, they were probably the first to try it, cause they are the first to try every euro style, including most, if not all of the ugly ones...

and snik, tranny mounts on any of these cars are easy as hell. up on the lift, top nut, bottom nut, swap. repeat for other side. usually can be done without supporting the tranny, just push it up to put the new mount in.


just got off work, time to start drinking/getting pissed off at the wife for eating all my chips...
all I looked foreward to all night were those chips...

I dunno, I've only been for dinner.



Off topic, did anyone else see the movie Paranormal Activity and think the main character resembled Cory a little bit?
