I think we all have that problem lol. In the end it comes down to the fact that while women come and go, our car will be there for us thru all of them.

Re: What Did You Do To Your Sixxer Today?

I'm waiting for a call from one of my buddies... he's gonna install my new rotors, brakes, brake hoses, and speedbleeders tonight. My broken collar bone is trying to tell me that I can't do it myself

He decided then that he was going to go drinking with his cousins... It would have been nice if he would have TOLD me that we weren't going to do my car... I sat there and waited for hours and hours and no word from him at all. Finally he sent me a text about 15 hours later saying "hoist is tied up, sry"

I sent a text back and asked "what's wrong with jack stands"?

I would have done it all myself at home with a pair of jack stands if I didn't have a broken collar bone... damn lazy kids...

Maybe I should go get my 20 year old son and see if he wants to play "work on dads car" again..... Last time he helped me do anything it took 14 hours to install a Windstar that should have taken about 4 hours.

I can see a brake job taking the whole weekend if he helps me LOL
