Default Car is back on the road. Rides great.

My girlfriend accidentally ripped the exhaust off our Bonnie. so we took it to mg92bonnies hoping he had a welder to tack it back together. we left the car there, and mg92bonnie found a bad cv shaft and balljoint. those were both replaced and we got the car back yesterday. HUGE improvement! no more clunking, steering is confidence inspiring. Thank You mg92bonnie

Cool. Like Dan said, nothing like having a smooth ride!

Gotta ask though? How did the exhaust get ripped off?

Wow! I bottomed out on the way to GXP Venom'* house, maybe more than once, and it took a few hundred miles for the muffler to fall off. Write a letter to your congressman!
