So today the Mrs took the 2017 Dodge 1500 Ram to the rental agency.........

 

The manager dude watched her fall out of it.......and I mean literately fall out of it..... :hysterical3: :hysterical3: 

 

She told him she sprained her ankle this morning falling out of it and as long as she does not smash her face it's all good :lol: :lol:

 

She left with a 2017 Chevy Malibu and is quite happy with it so far :D: :D:

Rampy needs to wear a body cam when he goes out of the house.

Youtube is in definite need of your daily adventures.

Personally, some of us just want to watch to live vicariously through you!!!

 

Thanks,

Glenn

It's actually very boring.....I mean old, cranky and boring......racked up over 2k miles on a road trip not long ago.....boring....watching people "speed" at 71mph when the speed limit is 70.... :lol: :lol:

 

But the free hotel breakfasts are always amusing.....everything from the Pakistani standing by the coffee asking room numbers in a rather cheap need to sleep hotel that has coffee, cereal and hard boiled eggs...all watered down.......even the syrup for the watered down waffle mix was watered down.....But I never should have asked if he was at one time a barber in Saudi as I had a barber that looked exactly like him, smelled just like he smelled and had the same 1st name (Mike)  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol: 

 

Leaving in the morning on another road trip, 8 ish hours one way in the Chevy & not sure when I'll be home :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

 

So, how's tis body/you tube camera thing work anyway :yukyuk: :yukyuk:

It is a small digital camera that attaches to hats, glasses, collars or pocket. 

Real simple, put on camera to your desired position. Turn on when you leave the house, Download the days adventure when you get home.

 

Believe me, your life is an adventure.

I go to peoples houses and work on their water closets and other such plumbing things. I have even worked on the water closets at the local Flying J and other such biological breeding grounds. 

So to me, your living the American Dream!!!

So please share your dream!!!

 

Thanks,

Glenn

The Chevy Malibu are actually a nice ride. It doesn't have the sports car feel, but has lots going on inside.

If GM could transfer some of the knowledge they have learned about steering and chassis dynamics
and handling from the Corvette, the Camaro, and Cadillac, and transfer some of the same principles to their
lower priced
cars like the Malibu, they would really have something.
Before I decided to hang onto my cars after they passed a mileage and date point, I was looking hard at Buick,
as their reliability numbers were way up.
Then I realized they were German made Opels rebadged by Buick. No wonder.
There are some great deals at Buick in some solid cars and their large SUV.

It was like one of the best cars Pontiac ever sold was the G8. It was a rebadged Holden from Australia.
If you can find a cherry Pontic G8 with low miles and a decent price, it may very well put a smile on your face. Not long after, they puled the plug on Pontiac.

Well get ready for round whatever because the Malibu's are entry level vehicles.
