Re: Steering Rack R&R or Rebuild? Advice & Shop Suggestion

Thanks guys. George, thanks for the shop suggestion. Do you know if they re-sleeve the racks when rebuilding? I hear the insides get scored from wear and are leaks points after seal replacement. QV, I'll keep you in mind if I decide I no longer want this bottomless pit of money in my garage. I'll se...

Re: Palero Wang motorcycle accident

Patty and I are alive, and according to X-Rays and CT scans, have no broken bones. Though Patty's shoulder/rib feels fractured according to her. She's broken multiple bones and dislocated her neck jumping horses, so she has an idea what broken bones feel like. Me on the other hand.... The worst acci...

Looking for a CoDrive for the Woman!

As the title says, I'm looking for a car to drive for Patty.

Ideally I'm looking for someone on Street tires and a stock suspension, but ST* might work also.

PM!

Re: Everybody alright?

String of bad luck for Mark Smith and Dr. Connie Smith.

They broke the rear engine dogbone mount Saturday afternoon.
Everything burned in the tow rig except for Mark's laptop and backpack.
The firemen were able to save a bottle of rum from the vehicle.

The trailer is safe.

Re: Car Insurance

Have you tried a quote from Esurance? Allstate owns them now. Full coverage on my Volkswagen GLI, Hyundai Accent and Nissan 240. $133/month I am surprised the GLI is cheaper to insure than the Accent.
