Here's my $250 Miata. It has hail damage and had a spun bearing. This pic is just after cleaning it. It belonged to a coworker who really wanted to get rid of it. Now its my daily driver.

- Mayor Wright Housing (Palama/Kalihi neighborhood of Honolulu)
- Kuhio Park Terrance (aka KPT) (Kalihi, Honolulu)
- Palolo Valley Homes (Palolo, Honolulu)
- Kamehameha IV Housing (Kalihi, Honolulu).

Notable high concentrations of Section 8 buildings:

- Aniani St. (western side of Waipahu)
- Pupu Streets (western side of Waipahu)
- Ohai Street (Wahiawa)


Hawaii is not unlike any other city in the world, it has good spots and bad spots all the same. Gasoline prices there are 47 cents higher than KC's current prices and I've read a gallon of Milk can be lot as 5$ and high as 9$.

Visit? Hell yeah. Living? I'll pass.. Too many ****** people for me anyway.

Took me nearly 3 hours to replace the alternator on my Protege.. Had to damn near pull the rack to get the old one pulled out of the engine bay and the new slipped in.. Don't think they ever intended that to be done with the engine installed..
This I hate 300ms, everything is a pain in the ***. Ive been workin on cars so long not much is hard anymore, some **** just takes way to long for the job, every car has atleast one thing. Did a head on a aveo in 3 hours one time, next car did a fuel filter on some honda van took me like an hour and a half. I was pissed. Could not get the damn filter off.

I sanded and painted them with silver wheel paint. I tossed the hideous chrome star hubcaps. I'm rolling on steelies until the 14" tires wear out.

Like this one:





Upper and middle intake manifold must be removed and coolant must be drained to change spark plugs because they are located inboard of the valve covers in the middle of the vee next to intake ports. *********** at Mitsubishi probably giggled like schoolgirls when they drew this one up.

As a general rule, this sort of thinking has generally been a distinguishing characteristic between American-designed vehicles and Japanese-designed vehicles. There are exceptions, obviously, but for the most part, the Americans seem to design the layout of components and fasteners to maximize ease-of-assembly on the production line, often sacrificing serviceability to do so.

The Japanese, by contrast, seem to at least acknowledge that at some point in the future it will be necessary for a mechanic to service the vehicle, and thus they provide affordances to maximize the efficiency of design-basis service tasks.


Unrelated:

Apparently, KPBS has a reported named Jose Jiménez. Anyone familiar with the Mercury / Gemini / Apollo era of US spaceflight should recognize this name.
