Default Funny story

So last night, i drove 10 miles away to my uncles house to give my car a tune up, (spark plugs and wires) and i took off the engine cover to make it easier. Today i drove into town to do some errands for my parents. I opened up the hood when i got home to put some brake fluid in and what do i see? the l27 engine cover sitting above the left strut tower. Nothing happened to it. Just sat there didnt break or anything.

Ask Randy...I was looking for my watch, opened the hood and took it out. Wouldn't have been half as funny if I hadn't done it a week earlier with Randy there.

When I had my Focus I was cutting something with a rather large kitchen knife under the hood, and shut it in there. I realized it was under there when 6" of a blade was coming straight out between my hood and grille, LMAO, it looked pretty mean.
