Default Cool thing happened

Had to get Bonnie through emissions and well..that'* sorta a long story. Short part is as I was backing it off the dyno at the shop (because reverse is touchy) the guy running the place who has a 97 Majestic Teal SSE doesn't seem to be moving out of the way for me to back up.

Finally he moves to the side and I figure I have a chance to get his toes still, I roll out. As I'm backing to the parking spot I hear him say to one of his guys as he'* heading for his car "I have a bulb out, my "Pontiac" doesn't light up."

I smiled and told him he didn't have any bulbs out. It'* soemthing that takes an hour or two of work for someone that knows what they are doing. Then thanked him for being the first person to ever notice it beyond those fellow clubbers that were looking for it.

Emissions test $20
Light up center tail $a bit of work
Having someone be jealous, Priceless.
