    Or maybe he looks for customers in the junkyard! A few weeks ago I went to look at a car in a shady dealership! I was speaking with the guy there, and he started to describe his business to me, and between his description he mentioned that he has couple of ladies that work for him and he halted and gave me a look... I just laughed and changed the subject and then left. It was really a shady business.....

Unfortunately, they don't sell cars, else this one would have come home with me.
    I am not sure about those (fake?) wood trims, but for some reason I like this generation of Olds Cutlass! They look sophisticated and classy COMPARED to many other cars of that era.

    Grandma and my aunt got back from their road trip. The equinox needs more work. The rear end squeaks, creaks, and grinds, and it grinds from the front end when turning the wheel when turning tight.


    ...More early first run problems

    Maybe you should just leave the Equinox in E STL with the windows rolled down, doors unlocked, and the keys in the ignition. Shouldn't take more than 15 for your problem to be solved.

    Plan was to clean EGR valve and replace water pump tensioner pulley. Unfortunately my grandfather passed unexpectedly this morning at 81 years old. So glad I got to spend time with him this summer and he looked and acted fine yesterday. Went in his sleep which is exactly how he wanted it. Very heavy heart tonight.

    You left off taping a $50 to the inside of the windshield.

    Man my deepest condolences to you and your entire family. I'm glad he died with dignity though, that is a right denied to many elderly today thanks to modern medicine.

    Ordered some 1/0 battery lugs.

    Now... the waiting game.

    Was NOT spending $5 a piece for them at the local audio shop. WestMarine was a little better, $4 a piece, but still.... eff that.
