George, don't let the cost of a headlight worry you, just tell your lovely bride to quit tailgating and to pay attention when she is driving :))

I talk like that, Phil, and I'm gonna have a $2200 bill to remove the cast iron frying pan form my skull!  :33:

When the engine on your TBM torpedo bomber fails and you are already at a low altitude due to flying in an airshow at the beach.

Time for cleaning out the shed and going to the dump. Nice to have a good yard-gar to make the messy chore more pleasant.

Villiger 125 Robusto - a good all-round cigar, and very budget friendly.

I am torn.  I like the simplicity of then older vehicles but really like some things about the late model stuff.  Like the power, the braking, the economy, the blue tooth and really like my cruise control on my 17 F250.  By just pushing a button, I can increase or decrease the speed by a mile per hour without having to guess. 

Of course it doesn't matter what I think, the manufacturers are going to sell what their demographics will buy and most people don't consider ease of repair when buying a vehicle.

Wife's car is a 2002 Buick Century with 150,000 miles. Engine is fine, overall it's great, still gets 27MPG average. It's been under covered parking and garages most of it's life, paint is just starting to dull. It's just plastic pieces going and a few electronic issues like the odometer doesn't always light up and TRAC idiot light comes on intermittently. So she's beginning to look as she knows it's getting up there.


I think there is an issue with resistors failing in those Buick instrument clusters.  Not a simple job but doable by the home mechanic with some soldering skills.

Yeah, one of the mechanics we have used said basically the same thing. Just required taking the dash apart and getting the cluster out to work on it. The TRAC light is a wheel sensor/ABS sensor issue we were told. All doable.

I paid less for a set of snap-on wrenches from 3/8-1" good grief. Maybe I need to dig around and see what I find, I think I have a hang tag that still has it's 1/2 ratchet.

Light it on fire and go get a goodyear or flexzilla hose.

I have one poly hose and I refuse to use it unless its absolutely needed.
Do they make a small say 25ft'er ?
I don't need much for my 6 gallon pancake compressor.

They do.
