From the graffiti on the wall, the writing on the drum head, and being right hand drive, I'd guess it's not here.

I was making a poor joke.

Your mastery of jokes is fine, my mastery geography is an abuse of the language.

Something I think about too much...

WTF, how do you get the extra penny in the labor charge? I'd be curious to see that itemized out. What's the hourly rate, and how many hours?

xoxoxoBruce 09-28-2018 08:06 AM

Manufacturers specify a time down to 0.1 of an hour for replacing each part on the vehicle. The labor rate is set by the dealer/shop. My local Chevy dealer is $120 an hour but can't charge that on warranty work. Sounds to me like if you have to remove part A and B to replace part C, they are charging for A, B, and C separately.

glatt 09-28-2018 09:41 AM

Yeah, that's kind of my point. $120/hr broken down into tenths of an hour increments gives you a nice even $20 for every tenth of an hour. The labor total should be divisible neatly by 20.

xoxoxoBruce 09-28-2018 02:15 PM

It depends on what that shop charges for labor rate.

That's one of the dumber things I've ran across this year...The whole schmeer, not the penny.

The good old days of NASCAR...

5,000+ pounds @ 175mph...steel glass...solid steel steering columns...steel seats...running on molten steel...added weight to keep them on the track instead flying through the air...with blue steel bawlz bigger than the cars they were driving.

Back when it was called Stock Car Racin'.

Gravdigr 10-01-2018 03:57 PM

Back when they resembled dealer-stock cars...somewhat.

Years ago, I drove a 68 - 69 GTX. Four-speed.

It was...manly.

All the chest hair and whiskers I have rfn popped out that afternoon while driving that car.

I really think you'd need a spotlight as powerful as the Bat-signal behind your dashboard for this to work.
