I guess we have to bite the bullet for skilled labor. Most kids today want frail butt jobs at a desk in I.T.

An aquintance asks if I need help, his kids are 19 and20. I call and ask if they can work. He says one has picked up more hours picking up dog fecal matter at a kennel and the other is looking for work in IT like his dad.

Had a Ford Tarus with a slipping tranny & had a really big jump coming up. Dealer says give him $1800 to tear it down & look at it. Found a hungry splinterhead that says give him a new filter kit & a case of beer. He fixes it like new!

i went thru so many transmissions one year they started caliing me steve iaamco...... found out its cheaper in the long run to bite the bullet by going thru the dealership, by a reman. you usually get a 30,000 mile warranty good nationwide.
Whenever you find that you are on the side of the majority, it is time to reform.
