    When I was on my roadtrip, I ended up stopping in California (I'm from southern wisconsin) to do an oil change. Since I already bought the oil and had tools in case of a break down, I pulled into a rest stop and changed the oil. It was hilarious! I had the car jacked up in the air and I discarded the oil in 4 walmart plastic bags... I was on my way again and 10 days later, when I got home, I had to change my oil again!

    Fun times,

    Patrick-

    Every job I've had and school I've attended since I've owned my car parking lots...and one parking lot where I was dropping off an application...(radiator hose blew off while I was in the interview so I drove my car to car wash and filled it up with the rinse water)

    Every store that I have bought parts for my car from, side of the highway on way to school, middle of downtown Detroit at 1:30 in the morning, middle of corn-town Ohio about 20 miles away from home on a lonely road in between to corn fields Sunday night around dusk...alone...

    side streets of many a random neighborhood, garage, friends garage, in front of my house, in front of just about every one of my friends house, parking lot of bank,

    damn....my car's a piece of shit!

    Needless to say I keep my craftsman jack, decent tool set, and jumper cables in my car at all times...

    Definition of my car...

    Berryville, Arkansas, 11:30-Midnight, middle of December, Wal Mart parking lot, close to the front of the building. Tranny started faintly whining so I knew something was up. That was the sound the original made before I lost 5th gear and the grinding started. I knew it needed oil, so I bought an el cheapo wrench set and some oil, poured it in and it ran out the bottom, DOH!!!!!! After loading the car up on a U-Haul trailer 5 days later, if your car is lowered like mine it will make some horrific sounds driving onto the U-Haul, I towed it the 100 miles home. Later to discover, after jacking the car up and inspecting the tranny, that the drain plug came out, luckily I had the old tranny there so I jacked it from the old one and she's still in place today.

    I Changed a fuel pump at the side of the road in mid january... and most canucks know how fun and ****ing cold it can get, especially around 6-8pm. I wasnt paying for a tow truck so my friend picked me up, we went and pulled one from a wrecking yard and proceeded to change it...
