A petition is definitely too little too late. still time for impact though. If you don't know who your Representative is, find out. Send emails or more importantly call, especially if your rep is one of the 100 or so "fence sitters"

Another option: pull the right angle adapter off and remove what's left of the filter on the work bench.

Word of warning though, you may, in the process need to replace the gaskets between the block and heat exchanger and heat exchanger and the right angle adapter.

I believe that Toyota has handled this situation about a well as could be expected given the media hype. In business there comes a certain penalty with being the largest, most respected or most advance in your field especially if you sell a well known consumer product. In these cases you are the mos...

If that is the case, it will be a couple hundred pounds lighter, and have as much or more power than many cars in the same class (A4, 328i)

First, a the Ute is much better fit to the Chevy lineup than it did Pontiacs, since Chevy was always more of GM's utility brand. Just because the VE platform was under the G8 already didn't mean the other VE import had to be a Pontiac also. It's interested that since Henderson is gone all these chan...

Brad,

You might want to check with the Carlisle folks on Building G being for the Merkur folks. I'm on the MkI/MkII Capri mail list and they are talking about having building G also.

Unlikely to be a head gasket. I concur that it was likely due to the lack of coolant flow allowing the water in certain areas of the head to boil. If I had to guess as to why it took some time before this happen, I would say the T-Stat had been open when you shut the car down and continued to allow ...

If this is a recent repair, I would definitely contact the glass shop that did the work ASAP! They need to correct the situation, or at least be told.

At this point HDTheater is almost doing a better job being SPEED TV than SPEED TV is. Hell if they'd add in a main line US series like Rolex or ALMS it would be perfect.

Check the connection between the fan speed controller and the blower motor (the fan speed controller on the plate on top the blower housing). I've had that connection go bad on me.

Hrm, the one case by that name I could find was Bannister vs US and it covered taxes related to royalties paid on patent, rule that it was income and not capital gains.

Of course there are references to Joe Banister but his was a criminal case.

It should be taxed. As a rebate, it's a component of income. YMMV 8) The US Tax Code defines income as a profit made on an investment, or one made on the labor of others. Acccording to the US Tax Code, wages are not income, either. John, I would expected less mis-information than that, yes wages ar...
