You go to your auto insurance office to add your CJ to your policy, the girl asks you what type of vehicle it is, you tell her a 1980 Jeep CJ5, she punches it into the computer and asks you who makes it, you tell her "Jeep or AMC" and she says it's not in the system.
Like when you go to the parts store. You say AMC or Jeep. They say which one.
Me: Well its a Jeep made by AMC with AMC parts.
Incompetence: Well you gotta tell me.
Me: Well AMC then.
Me: Then try Jeep
Incompetence: What was the model again.
Me: (Sigh) 1978 Jeep CJ5 with a 304 V8.
I buy it and leave. It happened again with getting a pinion bearing. First they dont make one. Then he tells me the diff takes 6 quarts of 10w30. I get mad when he gives me an outer race instead of the bearing, and leave. I did put my stuff away though and was calm about it.
This one here had me pissing myself. too many times...too many times.
I love it, use it to figure out the gas too.
Do you know how fast you were going?
No, my guage is broken, sorry officer.
Well you were going 67 in a 55.
REALLY, Think to self(Thats GREAT, I didnt know I could go that fast.)
Gives you a ticket for whatever and you dont even care.
I got pulled over by the po-po for a tail light out, and handed my insurance to him, and he went back to verify it, and came back asking if my jeep was a American motor corporation CJ-7, I was like yes...... its a CJ-7. Pretty funny when it happened, had to share.
That has happened before, the whole tail light working again thing, this time it didnt happen :-\. O'well, its not in the city ordinance so I am taking my time on fixing it, has something to do with a ground problem or wiring harness.
When fixing your ride involves a ride to NAPA and an hour or two with a Hayne's manual while you're friend had to get a $200 diagnostic test to tell him he had to replace a $500 PCM board . True story.
