That'* pretty rich though, don't you think? There'* nothing funnier than someone who is trying to be all smug or patronizing, when they are completely wrong. In my twisted opinion (IMTO).

Now you guys are pissing me off


I never noticed how they spelled guages until I seen it on here, now it bugs the crap out of me when I turn the key on in either my truck or car.

I was reading this feeling silly for never noticing the spelling. Then I saw Don'* pic.
Made me feel much better, because that'* what my 95 had too.
I remember now, cause ti was on all the time.
If I would have had the g a g e version, it would have driven me nuts.
