What have you done for your work horse today?

As in the poor ol' car that transports your ass around...

I just put the wheel cover locks I purchased on E Bay on the '85 Eldorado. The asswipe that I bought the car from didn't have the tool, being a tool himself. I could not locate a factory tool of that color code. I have to get a whole new, used set before I can replace the rear calipers which have done their on cue seizure. There was no way to easily remove the ugly little fucking wire hubcaps. So out comes the needle nose and after some cussing and sitting on the pavement for a bit, presto! In goes the new and now I can prepare for the later replacement of the rear calipers.
So thanks to my work I can now look forward to even more work. I am also thinking of the Lucas Mucas leaking from under the RR Corniche now. Also the 'stang needs those aftermarket, shit underdrive pullies taken off and the factory originals sanded, repainted, put on with a new factory belt. The tach in the '62 vette, the...

I bought an allen wrench socket so I can take out the allen screws on the front disc brake hubs. Germanstar is sending me fresh screws because mine are shot and I would never be able to tighten them to proper torque.
Wednesday I will install the wheel bearing, front rotors, break pads all around then flush the break system and top it. Got all the parts thanks to GS.

Well sir, I put $465 of ultra low sulfur fuel into her, greased up the 5th wheel and the Pitman arm, ran a check on the brake chambers and tightened the slack adjusters, cleaned out the microwave, tightened up the TV antenna and fluffed up my pillow.

TK, what a list, but did you forget anything? What about putting fresh air and giving Mndy the blonde blow up doll a top off? Shampooing here hair and cleaning her inside and out as well, You do not take care of Mindy, she will not "take care of you".

Took my E to the hand wash place next town over.

Watched undocumented workers wash the salt off the car as my little one squirted water using a water gun installed along the corridor for tiny tots onto our car as it rolled through the wash.

Watched more undocumented workers towel dry the exterior, wipe down the dash and the interior, door jambs, vacuumed and polished the wheel all for $16.00

That's a less than charming pig-ignorant, racially-slanted comment, as one would expect from you.
