I was walking through Lowe's this weekend and saw a familiar shape in the background of this pop up ad / display for Craftsman tools. Thought I'd share!

Evidently Craftsman couldn't find a better looking car for the photo shoot? Looks like they simply went to a junkyard and got that car.

Indeed! Makes we wonder if they took the photo in the junkyard and just Photoshopped a concrete garage floor onto it in place of the junkyard gravel. Dig that rusty brake rotor!

They don't even have the tool on any bolt or nut. He is just holding it over the upper ball joint for the pic...

I didn't even pay attention to that. Oh well, thats what you get when Kmart merges with a company. Every sense of quality and reality go down the toilet.

NO-NO-NO! You use a very large socket and hammer it on the ball joint and then give it a quarter-turn and it makes the car 10 mph quicker! And the latest trend is to have rusty brake rotors so they grip really good (Until the rotors separate from the hub!)

1/2" drive Breaker bar he's using is not part of kit shown.
Many OE BJ don't even have grease fittings there. If you even give doubt he's removing bolts attach BJ to UCA... Need a wrench to hold bottom end and some method to hold in place.

brake rotor is junk. Most shops won't even try to turn because too much rust alone.

Please, Sears sucked way before K-mart Bought the company. If Kmart didn't buy would've gone bankrupt very soon after. (Kmart Corp change name Sears to make people think Sear "saved" Kmart. Not.)

even now sold off Craftsman (bought by Stanly B&K last year) to stay afloat and still closing more stores.
Many Kenmore items are made by Whirlpool that just put K label on same stuff available everywhere.
DieHard batteries are Jonson Controls batteries same as Many others like Interstate, Walmart. (DieHard label is also for a lot of crap sold thru stores and online.)
Both often w/ higher price and no better then most others.

Are you all able to see the pic ? I just see a little square.

I've tried my laptop @my cell phone, still I do not see a pic.

Could someone post it the "normal" way ? I can't be the only one that can't see it. Thanks.
