Futher Muck a Honda

My ol' lady had a Civic when we met. after she moved in , the car blew a head gasket so I had to fix it. after that I decided my hatred for Jap cars was justified.
I fixed it , we sold it , and I put her in a 1980 pontiac Yellowbird . Much mo better for wrenchin on.







American Muscle cars are the ****.

For the frozen bolt/nut combo, might I suggest a torch?

Just remember where theres a will theres a way.. Even if the will is a big Hammer

I considered that, but my gf's dad doesn't have a torch and I got basically no decent sleep that day and work 3rd shift... probably didn't help my mood much!

mostly true. The fuel filter is idiot proof to change- right on the firewall. It's on the wheel well in my crappy econo-beater 1988 camry. To replace the coil I had to pull the distributor out, and they located the bolts under and around emissions and vac hoses specially to discourage do-it-yourselfers .

I'll be glad when I sell that Camry. Or maybe I'll enter it into an econocrap demo derby.
