Post pictures of cars with terrible mods Our Ethos (written Feb 2013): Shitty does not mean bad - Feel free to post shitty mods that are awesome! There are many pieces of junk that we all wish we could own (who wouldn't want a Toyota Tercel with a LS V8 swap?). Just because it's well done, It doesn't mean it's not shitty. Sorry guys stuck in a scene from "The Fast and the furious - 2001" This subreddit is subjective! your idea of shitty isn't everyone's and vice versa.

YSK: If you are buying a used car, test drive it to the nearest auto-parts store to have it scanned for check engine light codes. Sellers can temporarily hide them to deceive you.
Not everyone is mechanically inclined enough to inspect cars but all major auto part stores (auto zone, advanced auto, o Reilly’s) all offer free scanners for you to borrow. YouTube how to do it and you could save yourself thousands. People who sell cars can be sketchy and are good are hiding previous damage or mechanical problems. Pro Tip: offer to meet at the sellers house/dealer and ask them to not start it because you want to do a “cold start” which is starting the engine right up after it’s been sitting. Lots of mechanical problems can ‘hide’ or ‘disappear’ once the engine is warmed up. Starting it cold gives you a much better idea as to how it’ll work when you bring it home the next day. Best of luck!

In 50 First Dates (2004) Dan Akroyd’s character speaks about the hospital he works at as a doctor. He mentions the hospital being sponsored by Calihan Auto Parts which is the warehouse Dan Akroyd worked at in Tommy Boy.
On one of my deliveries for my Auto parts job, I usually deliver to this gas station/repair shop. The gas station owner see's me alot and said I'm the nicest delivery guy he has ever met, so he gave me some smokes. Be kind to others, because the greatest reward is knowing how happy you make others.
Don't want a woman's help in an auto parts store...even though she knows what she's talking about? Ok.
I posted this as a reply in another thread. Someone suggested I make it it's own post, so here goes: When I worked at an auto parts store about 20 years ago, I was trying to help a customer w a carburator (I'm female and was in my late 20s at that time). I had actually taken classes on fuel systems and rebuilt a couple myself. The man, with his teenaged son in tow, asked to speak "with a man". (Pretty sure he called me 'hon' somewhere along the line.) I got my store manager; a 60 year old, amazing man (I miss you, Paul). Customer started to talk about floats, and jet sizes, etc. My manager paused the man and said he had no idea about such things, and proceeded to call me over. Customer's eyes almost bugged out, son smiled. My manager explained that he's good at management stuff, and hires folks who understand the technical stuff. BEST. DAY. EVER. Postscript: that customer and his son would beeline for me in the future, even waiting to speak with me when some of the guys I worked with were available.
If you're in need of an inexpensive car battery you should know that some auto parts stores offer reconditioned batteries at a fraction of the cost.
The batteries are brand new, but haven't sold in the given amount of time. The store tests them, slaps a reconditioned sticker on them and marks them way down. As an example I bought a battery today for $50 that cost $190 last week. Doesn't come with the full warranty but at a quarter of the price it may be a good option especially if you're in a tight spot.
LPT Check engine light on? Go to an auto parts store,like AutoZone, before you go to a mechanic and ask for a diagnostic test. They’re free and you’ll have a better idea of what repairs a mechanic should be recommending.
