    THE TRUTH. I was very blessed to have had some great memories shared with my Dad before he left this world in July last year. Your parents are gold. Every moment with our loved ones is priceless, no matter how small. I definitely talk to my mom a lot more now than I already did. I hope your mom's hospital stay is a short one Tom. I hope she comes out of it for the better.

    Replaced the lower hose, t-stat, and t-stat housing. Finally got to use that dusty old gallon of G-5.

    Claimed a Raccoon a couple weeks back, pretty big and of course ran out in front of me right at the last second so I had next to no reaction time, both driver side tires got it. I told the wife had that been the Camry it would have been totaled because it sat low to the ground. No damage luckily either.

    Bathed it again to get the crap off from the wheel wells. If I don't work Monday fingers crossed I'll probably take it in for an alignment since I have a tug to the right while driving. The pot holes in the street that are large enough to swallow a small car don't help either.

    Unsure.. but I found similar pricing discrepancies when looking for new top shock mounts for my OME/Bilstein parts... ended up getting both left and right mounts, with a spring seat for $34.99, shipped free.

    Other places wanted that much or more for just ONE. AM-Auto parts and 1A Auto were the only reasonably priced sellers. Quality is easily on par with OEM from my inspection of the arrived parts.

    Often times things cost less in the retail world because an item changes hands fewer times between mfr and consumer. Every time a product changes hands cost increases. And other times things cost less due to inferior materials. Products can claim to be oem spec but made from different grades off steel... Sorry for the speech

    the more I go over this car, the more of a friggin' time capsule it looks like.
    Tires: original (14 years old!)
    brakes: original
    they NEVER reset the trip odometer
    if someone told me the wheels had never been removed, I'd believe it.
    hell even the trunk lock is being a little grumpy from LACK of use! they appeared to have never put anything in the truck either!

    In 1973 I bought a 62 Chev Impala 2 door hard top ( black, with red interior )
    car had 4800 miles , sat in a garage , original tires etc, motor covered in cob webs , old guy had never opened the trunk. When I did he said " Look at that, I knew I was supposed to get floor mats " Still in their plastic wrapping .
    Wish I would of kept that one :favorites68:
    Wheels had never been off of it either , although every year he changed the oil and started it every week , His wife wanted it, he bought it and 2 weeks later she passed away.

    I've got one on the shelf as well. Ordered it two years after I installed the first one - I had meant to get it a bit sooner.

    Yup, having worked in an Independent Retail Chain Auto Service Center, that is true since all auto parts came from Auto Parts stores just up the street. So there was always the constant argue why do we charge more than what they can get right there at the counter from Advanced Auto Parts.
