Its been a great day, and thats not sarcastic.
I was headed out to the junk yard being harassed by my mom the whole way "If its not an essential part why do you need to replace it?" My big point about replacing the grab handle was I didn't want a nice gaping hole in the headliner and since its my money and my car. . .
So I went out, found bird **** all over my hood which struck me as odd during the winter. Unplugged the engine block heater and come back to find it ain't bird ****. . . Some tard threw an egg at my car last night, and it froze.
So I went down to the police anex, filed a police report. Northridge is a bad place for this kind of vandalism. Went down to Van'* Automotive and found my savior, a 1992 Bonneville SE in green. It had been involved in a front end collision and all the good parts had been taken. It was sitting on cinderblocks and other garbage, interior covered in snow. But I got the EXACT part I needed.
Thanks Smellbird, you were right.
10 dolla. As compared to Pontiac'* $92, I DID get it for a song.
Went over to the mall becuase my $170 Nokia cell phone was freezing like an Apple computer. The minute I pulled into the mall power steering quit. So after getting screwed by Cellular One, again, I went over to Pontiac and a mechanic came out, took a look at it. Said the -15* weather we've been having is probably whats causing it and there may be air building up in the line. (I'm not totally buying it) So I will color it red to draw attention to it and not put ANOTHER post in the mechanical forum.
Finally went up to Chipotle, had a burrito, washed my car. And all was good.
