Today, just before we replaced the brakes on the one car....



.....our other car looked like this.



The bad luck with vehicles? It never ends with us.......

So this reinforces the fact that the KIA is the best...???
Waiting for the rest of the story...

Talk your crazy old boy into buying a Hondo or Toyota.....you can't kill them...trust me .. I've tried.

Did Garnet ride in the truck to make sure the driver didn't go through any puddles???

Buster said...

Hey guys that's not very nice. The PT gets outstanding gas mileage on the back of a tow truck...
Garnet, You have been bragging for 2 monthes how you could do all the brakes on the kia for 50 bucks. It cost you the same for back brakes as it did for me on all 4 in the HONDA pilot. Did you catch the JEss? HONDA.

jason -- for the last time it's months. no E in months. ever. i will not correct you or caress you again.

and guys, really.....it would be nice to convince garnet to buy a honda or toyota. but what makes any of you think i have a say in any of the 12 vehicles we have ever purchased???? if it was up to me we would have a beetle.

stop laughing, i'm serious.

J-Mike - I didn't just do drums and shoes - I did everything, including wheel cylinders, springs and bearings.....the rears would have only cost $100.00USD otherwise....

you know jess, the reason i don't comment anymore is because of all these "newbies" to your blog. i think they showed up around the time that you were compared to belinda stronach. i don't know if i could keep up with the banter! :)

are they scaring you away??? don't let the repressed teen syndrome of arrested development scare you - they are just a bunch of middle aged guys who are all jealous of garnet and his PT ;)

#1 - Belinda Stronach is a fox, and highly intelligent, she just happens to be on the wrong side of the floor at the moment
#2 - I am 32, well shy of middle aged, Coondog and Trotsky are middle aged, Trotsky will almost certainly die before his fortieth birthday
#3 - my development has never been anything but progressive
#4 - I am totally jealous of the PT cruiser, and the Kia for that matter. Actually, I am jealous of Preferred towing...business seems to be thriving. Perhaps Garnet should consider putting them on retainer...
#5 - monthes has an e, I don't care what anyone says

hmmmm...like i said, banter that i'm totally out of the loop of!! do i even ask about the "e"? fend off the 'middle-aged' men!! of course if they can keep up with garnet and his OCD then i guess i should hang around. maybe i could learn a thing or two! :)

I hope I'm not middle aged... and PT's are ugly! ;P

i shouldn't talk about middle age because i'm almost there...of course that depends on what you think middle age is. what is middle age? with today's society only living to age 75, that would mean 37.5 is middle age. hmmm...guess i'm not there yet! and i can't comment on the pt because i drive a dodge van and some would class that in with the pt's!

The life expectancy of a Canadian man is now 82, therefore, I am still a bit of middle aged althought my tastes are becoming more refined and sophisticated when compared to the youth of the day.

don't cry guys....i was only kidding about the middle aged thing.
