    I live in Dallas & a search of the Dallas Morning News shows that they never printed the name Ben Spies even once.

    Love their burgers. Not the cheapest but quality is excellent. I live 8 mins from there which is dangerous.

    Dad has been comparing diesel 3/4 ton pickups. Between dodge/chevy/Ford.

    The dodge salesman was all about their v6...

    Why did you only use uppercase for Ford? Does that indicate that you have a bias against Chevrolet and Dodge?

    Haha, no just on my phone. Dad ended up buying the chevy. I liked the Fords a lot too, but they're noticeably taller than the other trucks and that was a deal breaker for mom.

    Not a sales person, but a mechanic when asking for a quote on adjusting my valves on my Concours:


    I just showed <the mechanic> your pictures <of the pages from the actual shop manual>, and he still believes to get to all 16 valves you still need to drop the motor out. Just giving you the info on what <the mechanic> has experienced...

    Granted. Some take a few seconds and some could take hours if you're charging someone else to do it. ;)
