God scraped his screw driver on the connectors... and there was light!

The best break-down of modern automotive locomotion options available...ish(for some reason you have to scroll to the top of the page.)

In other news:
"You can pick your nose and you can pick your friends, but you can't pick your friend's nose."

Gremline poop in my electrical system:
Let me lay it down for you... I was presented with symptoms like pressing the breaks turned on the interior lights, and blinkers worked unless the running lights where on which then turned on the flashers. Well me and a multimeter tracked down where the gremlines where sending my electrons and how they where loosing thier way. It turns out that there was some crud on one connector in the trunk that caused all these and many more electrical malfunctions. Fucking gremlines! Scrape..scrape..scrape with the screw driver... I could almost hear the sound of the electrons streaming through the newly cleaned ground!

I can now "leagally" drive this car with the windows up... and at night!

Hey I once had a mechanic work on my car.

After he was finished the car did all sorts of strange things. The lights would blink like Christmas Tree Lights on and off at night .

I found out later on the reason why he did this. He wanted me to sell the car to him cheap so he could have a good car for his mother.

I made sure he did not get the car.

It was a Renault Medellian. I won it in a contest that Osco Drugs was having at the time.

Why is it that your car always sounds like it was made by Italians anxious to get home for pasta and a quickie?

I don't know... but that does seem to be the case! At least in the age of Iron and steel, they seemed to have kept everything fairly light... maybe a little on the flimsy side of light... but at least light. I am finding it fairly hard to find ways to reduce the weight of this thing. I am thinking about loosing the rear breaks... they don't do much, and I mostly engine break anyways! just kidding... though I definatly don't need an exhost system...
