    People born in the wrong decade

    I was too young for the sexual revolution and free love, and too old when hook up culture came around.

    What are the most critical preventative maintenance parts on older vehicles?

    The factory fuel pump in my 97 Silverado died at about 110K. The aftermarket replacement died at 105K. That's enough trend for me to decide when to replace next, assuming it ever makes it to that mileage as a secondary vehicle.

    How much was your cateract surgery?

    It depends on the lens and type of surgery you pick. My wife just had it done with laser surgery and the most expensive lens. Before insurance it was $7K per eye. There were two cheaper lenses - exact prices I don't remember.

    Psychologists know the brain doesn't develop the ability to forecast consequences until the mid to late twenties. Teenager, even responsible one, with this car - extremely bad idea.

    Chevy Colorado - Reliability

    That shudder is fixed by a repetitive flush with a new fluid. Apparently the fluid they were using was susceptible to absorbing moisture from humidity. I'm not aware of anyone on ColoradoFans whose shudder has not been fixed by the flush. I've also read, anectdotally, that it isn't just GM...

    HONDA push mower

    I have a husqvarna push mower with the Honda 160 and find it to be under powered when the St. Augustine gets a little high, even using a relatively tall cutting height. Although I like the smoothness of the Honda, I wouldn't buy the 160 again for my purposes. If I were going self-propelled, I...

    What Motorsports do you like to watch ?

    Local and regional circle track racing (dirt and asphalt). I crew and associate with several teams. It is harder to spectate these days, as local racing has deteriorated to the point of being trivial, but I still enjoy World of Outlaws and ASCS sprint cars, and USMTS modifieds. One of the...

    Costco doesn't have Group 51 battery? Deka 551MF?

    Have you looked in the store or are you using some Costco web site? The last time I had to replace the existing Costco battery in our Acura the Auto Center suddenly had no listing for it. Went into the store and picked the right one off the rack.
