    If that ain't a kick in the pants, well at least it was on the way home. If I was closer I'd bring ya a beer or 12.

    I'm apparently sharing a tow with one of my customers with a Saab. Gonna be an hour to wait.

    Bianca will be back on the road before lunch tomorrow.

    Yeah ... Leaking like a sieve. Filled up w water a couple miles after getting the low coolant message and that lasted about a mile til the message came on again. Pulled over again right away and found myself in front of the dead end sign.

    I'm surprised at you. Should have had a WP in stock.

    Odd that a WP would suddenly start to leak THAT badly so as to leave you stranded.
