Is this the one you speak of Bill? http://www.goprocamera.com/

I've got one that I use for training at work. I velcro it to our guys helmet during live fire and it never fails to surprises me.

i did it in my semi with the little squares of velcro you can get and did a video for my son not sure how they would hold up to your cars but it handled the vibration of the truck really well

They have a commercial Velcro that has plastic interlocking pins, that is some strong stuff. It is removable, if you put a little muscle into it. Although you would have a piece of Velcro stuck on your dash..

What about one of the flexible tripods? Wrap it around the passenger head rest or cram it in the corner of the window.

Changed the oil yesterday and found the broken part of the tensioner, Happy that'* not floating around any more.

New O2 sensor came, ran out and installed it.

Nope, didn't start, exact same problem. Guess I now have a back up O2 sensor.

I actually got my wife out to the shop to crank it over, no spark. Now I'm upset with myself because I didn't check that last week. Stupid mistake on my part. I got distracted.

Time to brake out the FSM, crank with no spark. I follow along, check this, check that. Hmm, replace the ICM, no big deal, I have a spare. No change. next on the list, change the crank sensor. Fine, guess I'll do that. Came off easy enough, considering I just had it off. I had a spare crank sensor so I swapped that out, was about to tighten the bolt when I notice, I forgot to put the plastic shield back on. Darn. HB off again. I grab the shield and reach up to put the cam sensor wire behind the shield, when I notice something odd.

Well, well. What have we here? I pull the wire up so I can get a better look at it.

Looks like the wire moved just enough that it rubbed on the HB and wore threw. I mentioned to Bill that I heard a small zap just as the engine died. I looked all over and couldn't find anything. Willing to bet, this was it.

So here she is, alive again.
