It'* just all in his head. He'* pretty amazing.

All I'm saying is that Sellncars is asking for a book cover to judge the book by, and it'* just wrong. I'm sorry to open my flap, but I'm not just going to stand idle on this one....
If you want the truth about this matter here it is. If i cant figure something out about my Bonneville and ask a question on this site, I sure as hell dont want some 14 year old thinks he knows it all punk that cant legally drive yet telling me how much experience he has repairing or diagnosing the problem. So bring the kid on and lets see who gets schooled..... I dont know everything about cars but, I at least have all these years of experience and driving time both in cars and trucks. How does your 14 year old profit diagnose any suspention or drivability problems?? Mom take him out for a ride??

He does it himself. He'* beendriving since he was 8. (You see, around here you can get a farm driving permit at pretty much any age) and has been tinkering with engines since 6. So, he has 8 years of experience already.

If you want to remain ignorant, that'* on you.
If you want to assume things using close-mindedness, go ahead. Just continue doing so with the knowledge that you will continue to make an *** out of yourself.

I'm done here. I'd suggest that this thread be locked and no one else let this buffoon know your age.

Everyone...we have figure out that age doesnt equate to knowledge potential, anyone can learn if properly motivated.

A 14 year old can work with a computer and understand electronics and data better then any adult so dont assume youth cant handle a vehicle.

The discrimination ends NOW
