    It's so EASY! Pick up German Shepard, stuff dog into sack, put Bandaids on the bite and scratch marks, stuff dog's head through the "HOLE FOR HEAD" hole, put Bandaids on the bite and scratch marks, roll down rear window, hoist 65lb dog in sack off the ground, slip nasty coathangers over the window sills and scratch paint while gouging upholstery, position stick on running board, C-clamp in place. If you don't have running boards, sheet metal screw the sack stick to the rocker panel. EASY!!!

    I could have used one of those when I was growing up for my brother.
    The dog was much better behaved.
    Cheers,

    We've come so far as a society.

    Dog were once our servants.

    Now they run entire towns.

    When I worked at Centronics years ago, they had a promotional item with the company name and logo on it that was pretty much what is in the ad. That was the late 70s and it seemed like a crazy idea. How would it not be an oily mess after one use?

    Being an Opeler, I, of course, have always had an oily rag in my GT, which also came in handy for dip stick cleansing. I've heard rumors that there were cars made that didn't spew oil from every gap, crack, and crevasse, so I guess this product was made for them.

    I worked with a guy who owned a van. He bragged that he never changed the oil. When the motor seized, it was pretty close to what was in the video.

    My wife brought a copy of the dog carrier into work. She works at a veterinarian. Everyone looked at it, no one made a comment.

    I never changed the oil in my '88 Jeep Cherokee Laredo. I got it with 106K on it and drove it until it had 245K on the odometer. Cross country at least 3 times. I never popped the hood for anything other than to check/add oil. One day a valve noise started and I had the local repair shop look at it. They pulled the valve cover and it was completely filled with chocolate pudding-like sludge that filled all the spaces between the rockers, springs, etc. It looked like someone had pressed modeling clay down on top of the cylinder head's valve train and made a mould of it. They smacked the lifter that had hung up due to poor lubrication with a hammer to free it up. I drove it for another 10-15K with no problems. I asked if I should clean all that funk up and they said, no, better to leave it and not dislodge any chunks that might clog an oil passage. It was rust free/dent free with a perfect interior when I retired it to a neighbor's garage. 6 months later I went out to start it and white smoke came out from under the hood. Mice had gotten to the wiring. It survived 245,000 miles worth of my neglect, only to succumb to a measly mouse!

    My Windstar gauges do that. So did my last Windstar and so did my first Windstar.

    It's a known issue without a solid fix. What works for one guy won't work for another.

    It's freaking annoying as frack!

    I had a Mercedes 190 diesel(someone gave it to me for free) that had a speedo that was a wheel with numbers printed in the edge. You could only see it through a small, say 1", opening in the dash that would only reveal just the number of the speed you were driving at. It was all screwed up. The wheel would rotate wildly back and forth from 10mph-80mph. You had to do math to figure out how fast you were going by taking the highest number and the lowest number you'd see and then estimating an average speed somewhere between the two.

    By a Mercedes 190D it does not matter if the vertical roller speedo will work.
    You need 1 hour for a speed from zero to 60 miles with 40 hp

    You are right! It was sooooo slow. You would think that a diesel would have a lot of torque and that even a small diesel would get moving okay. Not this one! It was heavy with body panels like a Panzer. A nice classy white one, though.

    I got it for free and I gave it away for free to some Greek brothers who spent a year or two fixing it up and then sold it for about $4-5000(back in the early 80's, so not a bad price). I was working in the casino, living at the beach, and chasing women all the time, so I had no interest or skills to fix up a weird slow foreign car. I had my first or second $100 GT at the time, so I was already in over my head with weird foreign cars. At least the GT wasn't slow!

    A so called "wanderdüne". A frend of mine was once asked by a car salesman to collect a 190D from Helsinki to where we live, about 350km or so, and after the trip he said: -I will never get old enough to buy a such a slow POS. Although an other guy that lives near by later bought the car and still has it after almost 30 years.
