Down the road you can say been there and done that and may start your journal history of PCa on www.yananow.net, also here and wherever, and have some things to say and share for the benefit towards helping someothers whom as they start walking down the same road guys like us (herein) actually threw down some pavement, and some directional signs(maybe a stop signal), maybe some advertising(non-profit type) and also the pavement has lane-line markers so 'newbies' hopefully don't get mis-lead or go astray and especially don't fall asleep at the wheel and find themselves into the ditch and damage their bodies, hey maybe some exit ramps (dump the protocol), maybe a place to stay over for comfort (HW site etc.), and if you go off road without the proper 4x4 equipment, there are always 'bodyshops' and repairmen (independents and franchised and it always is nice if you are insured).
If you run into someone else (boards-forums-wherever) and cause damage or have an accident be ready to apologize, (even look for a cop- the mod squad)it does not matter who's vehicle is more expensive or has alot of chrome or big engine or souped up and never swear or get profane about it, its just machinery that is damaged, fix it and move on. Well have a pleasant journey and take the family along, you might have to buy them food along the way. When at rest areas check those fluids and under the hood, again. Gas up and be ready for a long trip. Alot of smart travelers always care a spare or know where it is and keep it inflated.
Looking under the hood and checking the fluids etc. (way smart, before $*#& happens)
Polishing up the body to shine and be in top shape (no down side-maybe seen in magazine)
Replacing some parts as it ages (sometimes necessary), removing defective parts)
Maybe have a specialist inspect that exhaust system (is this like the DRE thing~LOL)-
If you need major repairs, get a second opinion from a reputatable shop ('have they done this before?' do you have any testimonials or people I can talk to about your work?)
Maybe shop for parts and additives (lots of additives out there and some are marketing junk...'I'm going to get how many more miles per gallon, 'never breakdown again', 'lifetime warranty'?????
Someone may have to clean the interior (harsh chemicals???..what's the ingredients?)
Yes you may have to return either under warranty or with a new complaint (have your paperwork, receipts)
Yes you may need to have it scanned to detect the whole enchilada by a techy specialists
You may need to balance your tires or retread them to get more traction and smoother driving down the road
If you soup up your engine get assistance from someone who actually knows how to do it
You may have to get probed maybe to pass an emissions test or for other diagnose items
Beware of rust areas if you notice them, beware of changes in vehicles behavior (could need major repairs)
Some techs wear rubber gloves (you now know in advance....LOL...no comment)
Yeah sometimes some nice looking females are seen around some vehicles (just eye candy-fyi)
Yeah you might have to get pinstripped for special showings (IMRT-radiations)
Also be courteous on the road and signal if you are changing lanes, might have to change wiper blades to see more clearly, they have additives by the gallons from many sources
wew-I could go on but I think this covers the concept...(Yeah I am not far from Detroit can you tell???)
Now get behind the wheel, start it up, put it in gear, put the pedal to the metal and even burn out if you wish. Travel on my brother and carry a roadmap, take money or credit cards, we will see you on the road. Oh...by the way we offer free roadside assistance and will help with the labor, and shoot the $$#$ with one another which is always fun.
