Default Funny experience yesterday.

Went to pick up my valve covers from a local business that had them. The owner wanted to come out and see what they were going on. When I popped the hood, he called inside for another employee to come check it out. Soon there were 4 other people there.

Turns out one of the guys has a 4-door GTP. We had a good talk for a few minutes. Both of us were obviously boost addicts, and both had replaced transmissions lately. Then he asked about my mileage. I told him 32mpg on the highway.



He **** himself. He gets 18. I asked how old his O2 sensor was, and his reply was 3 months. I said:

"Used a bosch, eh?"

His reply:

"How'd you know that?"

Makes you wonder how many people are driving around a 3800 with a Bosch gremlin eating away at their wallet.

They're getting my special magic super-dooper coating that'* on my SC. That should help these aluminum VC'* dissipate heat quicker than the stock insulating fiberglass covers.

That'* for another topic though.

The guy with the GTP may end up here. Particularly after he replaces his O2. We talked a little bit about BC, and I also told him of CGP.

Talk about a missed opporunity.

You could have bet him a pack of beer that you can guess his brand and what the problem was.

I introduce you to our new "Miss Cleo Wren"

The college guys next door call me the Prophet.

I've worked on 5 of their cars already. They don't even argue with me any more.
