I guess that's like trying to use a vac to clean your car in the wet driveway and get tired of the GFI kicking out. So you bypass it to only find out that it was doing its job from giving a little jolt here and there

If you're heading towards a snowbank, don't hesitate before you attempt to avoid it... each second you wait gets you closer to burying your car in a pile of snow.......

Don't disconnect spark plug wires from the distributor while the car is running... no matter how hard you try, you'll never move faster than electricity.. I got zapped 3 or 4 times before I learned that one

Don't grab an exhaust manifold to see if it's hot.. you know it is

This is one of my favorite threads of all time. I hope we keep adding to it. We could write a survival guide and sell it to get more Fiero parts.

Never keep change in the ashtray of your Fiero, you know it will just fall in the shifter.

Don't change sparkplugs in a Fiero with spoiler on a windy day outside. You will get bonked in the head.

Dont clean a bug zapper while it's turned on.

Do not put a clipboard on the dash above the steering wheel. It will fall and jam your steering, while trying to mak a turn.

My friend did this when he was driving my 85 GT at the warehouse I work at. We have a yard where we park containers, and its shaped like an oval. Every once and awhile me and him would go out to see who could get the fastest times around the yard. He was driving hard into a corner the clipboard fell jammed the steering wheel. He locked the brakes up, heading straight for a container. The car stopped, with the nose under the container, about 6 inches from the windsheild. Thats the last time we did that.

hoop: we are all dying to know who this girl is. And maybe they would like some tips on putting a car on crappy jackstands

Ah yes i got one: never ever take the rims off your car and keep them upright. Always lay them flat. They will fall down right on the good side.

sorry hoop, i'm having one of those days.

hoop- i took it to custom hi fi, they did a good job, for 87 bucks, but they chipped some of my interior paint off, so more touch ups. not a big deal, better than paying best buy $120 to chip it up probably worse.

you definately took it to the right place. i wouldn't go to best buy to have them install 2 cups and a piece of string on a bigwheel!

sorry about the paint chip.

did you get a chance to look at all the nice Eclipse head units when you were at CCHF?... ::droooooooollllllllllllll::
