did you have to bring in the old ones or just walk in and say what you needed.

It's a 5/16" or 3/8" ID hose. I think 3/8" TB to water neck, 5/16" water neck to water pump.

Probably 3/8 from cooler to TB.

At Kragen / Oreilley, you just say "I have a 1990 Miata and I need the little coolant hose that goes from X to Y", and they pull up a diagram on the computer and you point and say "that one."

My son was an absolute angel on our vacation trip. So much so, that complete strangers complemented us on his behavior.

So, in the spirit of the holiday (and because I think it's way cool), I bought a large Lego Star Wars kit. Wife told me not to, but I succumbed to impulse on my lunch hour. Got the Imperial Shuttle - you know, Darth's personal ship. Cost me 2 bills, but it's going to look so neat up on his shelf. We'll have fun building it together.

apparently the M i bought was supercharged at one point in its life, and has had the engine replaced (72K on both the Odometer and autocheck). the leading theory from looking at the underside of the car is somebody had it slammed and cracked the oil pan.

You know you're buying man gloves when they're held together by a thick staple instead of a thread of yarn.

Mmm popcorn. My tech gloves always get torn up in the garage for some reason. I'm replacing another pair of all leather gloves that the fingers wore out.

Pen2_the_penguin is going to 2013's Gumball 3000 with his ridiculously rich and gay brother.

He was looking at a veyron but it might not happen, the second runner up is a Aventador.

That is pretty awesome, but I really just care about the race between you and Vash. Has he even agreed to it yet?

Vash or Vlad (18psi)

I am just afraid to be around vash if anything car related, and his fist of raging fury.

As for Vlad, I asked him in a thread, but I think it was overshadowed by a new page.

I really should PM.

ey vlad...

Ohh crap, I was thinking Vash. I don't know if you race 18psi if I would make it out to Cali for that or not.
