Shoot guns, and take photos. Outside of the automotive bases, like test driving cars and the such.

Was it me?





My hobbies are eating junk food, hoarding, net surfing, and gambling. On occasion- to be nominally useful- I fix things for people. And open really tight jar lids.

P.S. That ramp was REALLY nice to work under! That is a carpet runner there to lay on and it was the perfect height. Had to be very careful putting the car on and off it! That's my '84 getting a brand-new cat-back exhaust system.

The Ford Festiva, a way better car than that Ford Fiesta!

Frank Lee, I had not seen your setup; what comments have you received? I cannot find the thread now, but it looked like he laid a log across his driveway and propped up boards on it--hopefully securely attached. I forget what modification he showed us, we seemed more interested in his "lift!"
