^^Wow, that is frightening. :aargh:

Exactly. :lol:

I had a good laugh this afternoon while watching a repeat of Cops. Hillsborough County Florida (Tampa) episode. At night, a driver made an illegal U-turn, squealed his tires and his BOV made itself known right in front of several parked squad cars. :shock: Officers pulled him over- black SRT-4 (of course, I had recognized the car immediately even in the dark- a twin to mine). The car wasn't his, there wasn't any insurance paperwork in the glove box and he already had a previous citation for street racing. He was driving his friend's car since his Civic had a bad exhaust. :lol: He gave the officers a verbal list of mods that he had done to his friend's car (maybe not my car's twin after all) and they let him go with a warning.

So he doesn't want his people in Mexico and we don't want his people in the US. I like what AZ is doing... it should done with all states that border Mexico.
Drove my neon until it was killed in a flood.

I'm surprised at that. I made a lot of trips to southern Ontario (greater Toronto area) and Calgary, Alberta back in the 90's and the Canadians always made such a fuss over me :oops: (a great bunch of people! :thumbup: ). Of course, you might not get that kind of a reception in Quebec if you don't speak French.

^^^^ I always went to Sudbury, Ontario ... flew from New Orleans to Chicago, Chicago to Toronto, Toronto to Sudbury ...
always had issues with Canadian Customs officers in the Toronto airport not wanting to let me into their country ...
Maybe they just suspect all southerners of bringing drugs into their "frozen paradise" :tardbang:

Wow, I'm sorry that you had bad experiences. Never had a problem with the CBSA (Canada Customs) but US Customs did detain me the first time that I crossed from Windsor back into Detroit (that was scary). The Canadians were always so nice to me, one of the reasons why I tried to emigrate back in the 90's.

got sun burnt today teaching rylee how to fish, she caught 4 and so did I. The people fishing around us didn't catch anything, needless to say they were pissed that they were out fished by a 3 year old

Not at your sunburn but at her fishing ability. That's great! I feel about your sunburn- old baldy here has a burnt, itchy scalp from being outside at the Dayton meet yesterday. :banghead:

:banghead: seems that ignorance is creeping out again on this forum. i'm tired of new people coming on and thinking that they're God's gift to the community. i really thought that the search button was pretty easy to use when i joined. did it get more difficult progressively and i've just gotten used to it?

Had the 66K service performed at the dealership on Saturday. Checked under the hood before leaving and noticed oil on the engine mount, manifold and around the oil cap. The dipstick was inserted upside-down as well. I went back onto the service drive, got some paper towels and cleaned everything up. I had also asked for a lubrication (the "L" of "LOF" :roll: ) but the hinges didn't look like this had been done so I went to parts and bought a can of Mopar lithium grease. I really miss my late father's garage- I could have done a better job changing the oil myself. :cussing:
