The cards were something I did on my own when we were bonnevilleforum, They are not part of being a supporter deal or anything. Given I sold less than 500 of the 1000 cards I paid for, dont expect that to happen again anytime soon.

It'* great to help someone out isn't it?

I've had the pleasure of helping on the road and in my garage. That'* kinda what keeps me coming back day after day. Plus you know that if they get the chance, they may help another person.

My largest repair on the road was swapping a UIM at Advance with a guy. I even supplied the LIM.

I saw an NA Regal hood up, walked in and a guy with two gallons of water in washer fluid jugs walked by me. I got my stuff and stopped off to say hi to him. Diagnosed it from the curb w/o looking at the car. Ran good, he went to pass someone and it bucked/ran bad. He pulled in and now it won't start but will turn over and the coolant is way low. I said, that'* because your LIM has a half gallon of coolant in it, the plugs got wet...I'm surprised it didn't hydrolock on you.

We chatted a moment longer, Advance didn't have the manifold on the shelf as usual, I had one at home. Went the 1/2 mile home, changed grabbed tools (he had some, but you know about a man and his own tools moving faster) and the UIM, paper towels, nitrile gloves..etc.

I got back and we banged it out in record time with me giving him pointers on what to do next. Then i headed off to the brewery for the tasting.
