Default Good thing I had the ole' Pontiac with me today..

I noticed today, a co worker of mine, had a flat tire on his 94 Ply Duster. We had no portable air tanks that could be used, so i said, well, the Bonneville out there has on-board air..he says..no way, it does? Yup, backed my car up to his, 5 minutes later there was enough air, he could move his car around back into the shop and remove the tire to be fixed, -30 outside as well..
I had my Pontiac Accessory bag on my desk all day long after that (too cold to wrap the air line back up), everyone asked me..wtf is that for? Everyone was kinda suprised about the on board air as well I showed a few guys what was all in it.
Damned skippy, Ole Pontiac saved the day again..i had to rub it in his face, he worked for Mopar for 25+years hahaha..shoulda had a camera

Reason number (gosh..I lost track) why I like having the optioned up model.

Neighbor'* kids think it'* their basketball filler. And at NEBF we think their driveway and grass is another extension of my place.

Helping a friend move some gravel after work on Tuesday. Wheelbarrow had a low tire. Nothing more convenient.
