Around the House & In the Garage Forum Rules
« on: January 25, 2008, 09:32:30 AM »
AUTOMOTIVE DISCUSSIONS
All General Board Rules apply here. Moderator has the final say on what’s appropriate.

Oh wow.

We have a new forum here, and one most likely destined to bring in more people, some of them becoming members.

I'm not sure who the moderator is here, but when I suggested it, I suggested it as a place for others to describe automotive problems, and to post photographs automotively-related.

And then the idea was expanded a bit, to include lawn equipment stuff, swimming pool stuff, wood-cutting stuff; anything mechanical.  Power tools whatnot.

The only suggestion I have is that if someone posts of a photograph of his vehicle, please bmp it, and white-out the number on the license plate, and then jpg it and post it.  It's just good internet security.

Oh, the primitives will come.

I'm sure that by the end of March, the primitives will be over here in droves.

It takes time.

:rotf: As soon as I saw this I knew Frank would be in here.

Well, when I was a teenager, while all my peers were learning cars, I was learning income-taxes.

And then after we became adults, they mechanized my motor vehicles while I taxed their income (personal and business).

There were a lot of things done to my vehicles that I never had the slightest idea, but they knew what they were doing, and never let me down.

But then suddenly when I abruptly moved out here, from more-populated areas of Nebraska, there were no such friends around.

So I had to start learning all this stuff, rather than having someone else take care of it.

No, no, sir.

I figured you were teasing, but in the good-natured way.

The deal is, I don't think I have "bad luck" with motor vehicles--especially since it seems every time something really bad happens, it turns out to be minor.

Like the time a guy told me I had a cracked engine block--and it took a $4.70 repair (parts and labor, really, I kid you not) to fix the problem.

I don't think that's bad luck at all.

It's just that, I suppose, this is the first time in my life that I've been driving around (the past six years), and something happens, and ooops, there's no one around, just myself.  All other times, plenty of people were around, and problem solved.

It's a quite different life, driving around where there are more miles per vehicle, than vehicles per mile.
