I'm a mechanic, I fix problems you didn't know you had, in ways you do not understand

I have my moments, when I'm chasing down a misfire or something that I wish my truck had a carburetor, then I have my moments when I'm putting $80 worth of fuel in a Chevelle and know it's going to be gone in 160 miles or less that I wish it were fuel injected...

Woo!! Got my smallest group with a centerfire so far....with a "cheap" Remington 770 at that too. Was also only a 3 shot group though. Came in at .467" with hand loads.

Got another speeding ticket tonight. I'm going to have to try and fight this one. Ticket says 80, but I never went over 75 on cruise control. The officer also ADMITTED that he lost sight of the offending vehicle for three miles. I don't doubt that he did clock someone at 80, but it damn sure wasn't me.

Took my car to my mechanic (good and trusting friend) after the air conditioner went out. He filled it with freon twice but both times it leaked out. He called to tell me it's got a leak in the dash. I about chit my pants when he told me it would cost $750.00 just to pull the dash. I called two other places and they quoted me the same price. I don't have that kind of money just sitting around to get it fixed. So I have been driving it real early in the mornings to get stuff done before the heat/humidity is unbearable. My husbands AC in his truck works great but it's a damn gas hog. If I didn't have any bad luck I won't have any luck at all. I'm just frustrated....
