    changed the plugs in the Colorado the original or second set in 464,000 miles.

    I washed the engine off today and then go to start it and was running like shit and began to freak so i went to Advanced auto since auto zone did not have the plugs in stock, really??

    I got brave and took it on and all the plugs were fine but got back to #5 and took the coil out and water got in and was causing it to run rough dried out the hole and the coil and put her all back together and runs like a champ now.

    Just call me a ASE chicken wrench turner

    Had a lot of snow lately, ended up getting some cooper winter/snow tires. The tread depth on them is pretty rad. I brought them to work today to mount and balance them.

    Well the G8 had to come out of hibernation.

    My DD blew a brake line coming home Friday night. Sucks balls!!! My G8 was all clean and nicely tucked away. Its never really seen rain & snow and now it had been raining and going to snow this week.

    I need another daily fast but $ is tight

    I let it continue to sit in the garage and collect dust.

    It has a fine coating on it at the moment...

    Looked at my new steering wheel. Maybe it will be warm enough to install today.

    Replaced a relatively new AGM battery with issues, with a non-AGM Interstate Battery. Not sure why I left Interstate Battery in the first place. While I was driving around charging up the new battery, my replacement windshield got hit by a rock. The chip is small but in my line of sight. I am still having windshield cowl fitment issues so I see this as an opportunity to get this right in the future.
