    Well if Murphys Law applies to you the same way it applies to me, no, you're screwed! No parts stores are open today and with my luck all my ratchets would snap apart!

    That jeep thing? Yah I understand it....... Like my Blazer? <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5>http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5</a>

    Tell me about it. My truck decides to overheat on probably the worst holiday for buying car parts!

    Oh, well. I get to spend time with the family. Happy Holidays!

    Spent the most of the day in the garage, it was great! No interuptions at all, very productive. (less a slight hang-over)

    I slapped in some ORD greaseable front shackles yesterday, and had planned to put in a 1" zero rate this morning, but got up too late.

    My Chevy isn't broken, its just out of gas.

    Well, it wasnt all that warm out there...but what WAS amazing is that it wasn't raining!! Vancouver, WA is about as rainy a place as you'll find and its been really clear the last few days and is forcasted to be clear through the 1st. Not bad! I guess thats mother natures x-mas gift to me. =)
