Fixing cars 'in the street' or the 'dirt' as we used to call it, is definitely the pits. I refuse to as well, but then I'm not 20 something anymore. These cars deserve better-at least some sort of organized 'place' where they can be worked on. I struggled after $8k of tools & equipment vanished from my garage-specialty tools I'd been collecting for over 30 yrs and from when I restored cars for fun & measly profit. So now thanks to some low-life, I'm buying tools as I go-again, the pits. Oh well...:thumbsup:i dont have anywhere to work on my car, so thats the only reason it goes to the mechanic.
i dont approve of shade tree mechanic-ing on the street.
