    Don't get me started on small town dealership mechanics right now.

    If they would allow me to take my van to my Brother in Law who opened his own shop and left the Corp run local shops, I would have had my van fixed 2 months ago!

    My local GM shop is telling GM one thing and telling me another....I am throwing them under the bus now!

    And very done of my time and money being wasted!

    My guy has a masters degree from university. His Dad started the place like 50 years ago. His son never wanted to do anything else. The grandson is there too. He also has a masters degree from some funky liberal college up your way.

    They do have a guy working there that somewhat resembles your example though.

    And his name is Marty.

    But that Marty can work a screwdriver.

    My father's side of my family came from rural western Virginia.

    The Pembertons were the poorest of the poor as I understand.

    Marty and I are blood brothers down deep inside, I'm sure...

    Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night all sweaty and wanting a glass of buttermilk?

    No, but my father likes that stuff....

    Just like a copy of a copy of a copy, after a while the good stuff fades out I guess.

    I would've fired one up and everyone could have taken a break.
