Quite a while for him is measured in hours...

I am concerned that he might have wrecked the Volvo - his habit of taking pictures and video while driving might have caught up with him....

I might be to blame for that one. I was ready to post his home address but I thought that might be going a bit far.

Maybe he learned how to SAVE money, and not go joyriding around in a Volvo. Some people dont like to take advice. I take Astro14 and Clevy's advice.

This has to be only forum where someone has to post asking where one of the trolls are.

This place is actually a pleasure now without seeing on going troll posts from Gearheadtool,Dakota [chevyboy14] and Cannobie.

Instead of asking where the trolls are you should be asking where some of the awesome people went like Johnny,John Browning,Mori and a lot of other awesome people.

I was expecting it to break into a George Michael song. Father figure maybe?
Are those wipers flexing side to side,like flopping. How much extra did those cost over just cheap ones that effectively wipe water off the windshield?
I wonder if that other Volvo has their timing belt changed?
With driving habits like those I wouldn't even bother changing the timing belt,your gonna totl the car before it snaps.

Actually, I got a new tire on her, too. The wipers.. I have to change them, yes.

Here is the new tire.



The wheel aligns correctly, after the new tire.



Here is what came OFF of her, and is no longer on the car.
