    As far as Ford vs. Chevy goes, I wouldn't buy a Chevy, because I am a Ford man. I also wouldn't buy any other modern (last 15 years) GM or Chrysler products. Or even FoMoCo. None of the big three are even close to what they used to be.

    The only new cars I have any real desire to own (obviously I would take a free Chevy or Ford, but I mean one I'd buy) are Italian. I expect them to be unreliable. ;)

    Speaking of 4 way stops, when you see a car get to the cross street stop way before you but waits until you completely stop before they start moving.

    That's me, I have learned to trust anyone. Don't believe turn signals either.

    Screens in cars doesn't have anything to do with stupid drivers. on the lat page there was a brief discussion of Ford and Chevy, and I finished that out. Then vented about the stupidity of screens built into cars IMO.

    and, By Don't use their gas pedal, I mean barely even touch it. :)

    Nah. It was in the parking lot between deliveries. Side mirror pushed in, dent, and some strange white powder on the door.

    Wouldn’t mind so much if you could find a decent body shop that does quality work... unfortunately, those are few and far between. Shoddy workmanship is rife. They can usually paint reasonably well, but they take shortcuts, forget screws, forget snap-on retainers, forget electrical connections etc. etc.
    Alea jacta est!

    Hate my set-up. Crawling behind my rig for a simple cable swap is an exercise in frustration and usually requires a shower afterwards.

    I so feel your pain. In my case the rack has pads that allow sliding but, between the equipment weight & my tower’s woofer wires that could be about 2’ longer 😬. My most common reason to pull it out, per Outlaw, is to exsert* & insert* all HDMI* connects several times each every 30-45 days.
    Come to think of it they’re about due* an we’re expecting rain all day tomorrow.

    I would talk to a dent wizard before going to a body shop. One may or may not be able to remove the dent. That route would be better if possible over a respray. Sorry that happened to ya.

    People who don't accept responsibility for their own actions. Always pointing the finger 180 degrees out of phase. Can't stand to be around them, as they whine about how the "world" is always "screwin' me over." Shuddup, man-up, and get some character. They're usually the same people who are negative about EVERYTHING. Negativity is so chknsht, any fool can do it.

    These dent wizards -- are they like Billy Crystal's character in The Princess Bride?



    Where does one find them (if not at the body shops of our land)? Do you look under Dent or Wizard in the Yellow Pages?

    :|

    In all seriousness (well, some seriousness), my father had a set of (quite vintage) body and fender tools for just such actions. I didn't really give serious consideration to keeping them when we helped him downsize, though.

    In all seriousness, I have found health benefits to cutting out dairy altogether, but to each his own. Pizza with dairy free cheese is just bad!

    I HATE.....HATE stupid new terms like "claps back"....it makes me want to throat-punch the writer. You work at a news agency (I use the terms loosely); you're not a 13yr old in the back of the school bus.
