    Somehow I doubt that ProTouring Chevelle will be as competent as my Cherokee (with rear airshocks of it's own) around corners, let alone vs that Vette.  Actually, I think that Vette has been terrorizing road courses and cone filled parking lots longer than I've been alive!

    I'll never forget the Ram I saw several uears back that had stacked, yes, stacked blocks in the back! Needless to say, I got away from that truck QUICK!  Also seen an old Ford F250 that had a pile of drilled and stacked hockey pucks being used for a body lift (for the record, I'm anti-body lift, period).

    Come summer, my 200 will be boozing it up again, eveything is cheap enough that even is the spread sucks, I'll take the cost per mile loss in favor of the gain in smiles per gallon and cooler running temps in hot weather!

    That's what I paid at the BP near work Thursday night, Kane Co. I don't think it's been that low since I bought my Jeep in '03!

    No, other than one being a rebadged Mazda 2 and the  FR-S being the near twin of the BRZ, they were all existing Toyotas that were federalized for this market.

    It happened post-9/11, IIRC, the whole industry went bankrupt and looking for concessions, which included the pilots' pensions, now they appear to be making money almost hand over fist.

    That's interesting.

    I know a pilot that will be retiring in the next couple years, the bankruptsy killed his pension, but are they going to do anything to correct this with their pilots, probably not.

    OK, you put Carol Stream, FL, the snowblower part kinda threw me there.  What amazed me is the number pf people who  pulled that stuff and had money in the first place.  Kinda like the folks who complain about having to cross the Fox River to get to the east side of St. Charles............

    Florida or Illinois?  Not surprised anyway though.

    I had that position at Toy's "R" Us for some of the time I was there Harry.............and I HATED, HATED!!!!!!!, working service desk!  The people that would lie to your face, or expect to return stuff from Target or Wal-Mart (with those stores' tags still on the product!) was unbelievable, and then, so long as we carried it, I would be told by a manager to just take it back!  I had no problems going out and collecting stinky garbage bags, sweeping goose dropping out of the parking lot, cleaning the bathrooms, unloading trucks, stocking shelves, ect, but I hated the service desk with a fiery passion!

    I mentioned it to my boss today, he suggested using ones that are labeled as "chemical resistant", apparently he has no issues with them on the saltwater aquarium  he has in the back of the store.

    That's the weird part, they,ve been in an ammo box (with an air tight seal), tool box or just sitting in my bedroom and covered in some way and they haven't been outside in the cold since last winter.
