Actually, none. The list is~
Hit and run(red light)- Old van
Drive Thru- young kid in a van
Two red lights- Both in 2010-ish hondas, under 20 as well.
Stop sign- A 16 yr old who just got his license 2 months prior to hitting me, in a 03 mazda.

Living near 2 colleges seems to be my issue.

Unless they're my Snap-Ons, S-Ks, REAL Protos or Wrights, it's not really worth going through the hassle of dealing with warranties. I stopped trading in broken Craftsman tools about 15 years ago, when the quality of their stuff took a complete nose-dive. And now that Armstrong just went out of business, those are all just break-n-toss.

I'm going to start a tool photo thread sometime this week. I need to re-inventory what I have anyway.
I'm probably telling get you something you already know but conceptzperformance.com has a lot of oem Nissan Z parts on their website.

Hey hey hey hey! I fit that Caddygory!! Well, I did until I sold my neighbor my last Cruella DeVille. (Hey, don't blame me, I "inherited" all three from my pops!)

OK, got an ethnic joke here.... anyone opposed, please avert your eyes.

Mic (the old retired Asian guy) went to the eye doc and got an exam. Doc says, "Mic, I'm sorry to tell you that you have cataracts."

Mic say: "That cannot be, Doctor, I have Rincorn Continentar."

I'm very sorry.

Alright gotta order some brake pads and rotors... Should I just get some normal centric 125 series blank rotors or do I need some super cool looking drilled and or slotted stoptechs.... Should I get semi metallic brake pads or some sweet duralast golds with the lifetime warranty... So many choices.

My current set has about 2000 miles on them so its surely a high priority.

In other news I sold the G35 trunk with the spoiler attached for $50... Total investment in G35 $650 and falling...

I also learned that shipping an airbag is not cool with UPS or USPS otherwise I might be at $550.

I'd get standard rotors with some good pads street/track pads.

Drilled and slotted just wear pads faster lol

But then again.. The IG cred you could pull... Hmmmm I see your dilemma

Yeah, college traffic will do that. A buddy of mine living in Orlando got hit twice in a month by two separate old guys in two separate Cadillacs. The second time, his car was declared a total loss.

Probably none as even the most egregious and deserving Darwin Award winner can (or should be able) to read that. Of course, such contestants typically don't read things like that so.... hmmmm.

But ya, at 20Kv at the ignitor, I don't think it's wise to ignore the yellow sticker. HIDs are scary when you think about what's going on inside them....

Rolled my fenders. First time using a roller and it went very smooth, surprisingly, for me.

Is that your TR6 also? Oh wait, maybe it's not...looking for the "big camber" causing trailing arm, or did you get the brackets fixed and shimmed up?- ya, it's got to be a Triumph
