Post up what you did with your car or truck today. Anything goes, drove to work, picked up lumber, fixed this or that.

So lets keep this going and going. This is a continuation of V1 and V2.

Doing a search on RockAuto, came across GM OEM hubs/ wheel bearings for 2000-2005 Bonnevilles being closed out at $72. Amazon and Ebay are selling this exact part for over $150. The Timken equivalent sells for $92 on RockAuto.

today, just the monte to work, but this weekend spent some time picking up the summer stuff and park my firebird against the back wall so i can get 4 cars in my 3 car garage. "winter mode" is a PITA but its less of a pita than cleaning snow and ice off my yukon when i need to use it

Nothing beats having your vehicle(*) in the garage up North in the winter.... It is a good thing.

IDK how you north easterners do it. Don't get me wrong I love to go visit the snow and play in it for a couple of days but if I had to deal with it on a daily basis I would totally turn into Jack Nickolson in The Shining! "Here'* Jhonny"

Yeah when I lived in Oregon I had a Yamaha phaser and rode the hell out of it in the winter but we had to drive an hour to hit the snow line. The most memorable thing is when some buddy'* and I rode to the rim of carder lake. It was a clear day and you coul see for miles and it was almost Erie how quiet it was up there.

i used to have a snowmobile but is a whole other engine and such to take care of. the quad comfortably go through 12-18 inches so that is fine for all but about 1-2 months if its a bad year. some warmer years the snow will melt down some and i can ride all year. i have a snowmobile at work i can ride if i get the urge though

I'm gonna say this now, but in a month, I'll be saying the exact opposite..but I love winter and going out and playing around in the snow. I used to have a lot of fun drifting through fresh snow when I had my Ranger. That thing was a beast in the powder in 4wd.

I attempted to tint my tail lights the other day with smoke plasti dip. Came out very disappointing. I was expecting it to come out much darker than it did. After 7 coats, it was barely noticeable.
