I bought tires ONCE at Wal-Mart for a Volvo 240. Got home, eyeballed the car, realized they installed 3 of one size and 1 of a different brand and size. Went back, raised holy hell, rolled back out on 4 matching tires that were significantly better than the crap I was buying initially.

Learned that lesson.

Are all of the previous owner's service records from Pep Boys?
Ha! I wouldn't be surprised if they took it to Walmart's car care center. Have you seen the jokers that work in that place?

Exactly one time hung-over me grabbed the Icy-Hot stick instead of deodorant while getting ready for work one morning...back into the shower in 3...2...1...

Once on our HS basketball team, we put icy hot in the center's jock strap. ONCE! The 6'5" 225 pound giant became a raging bull! Thought he was going to kill all of us. hahaha

That reminds me of the time I gleefully rubbed some crushed fresh habañero all over my co-worker's water glass...then promptly headed to the can, took out my contacts, and took a leak.

Karma didn't even use lube.

I see some 2 ohm 5.25 inch motorcycle speakers online. Do you think would they work with the factory system? My original speakers are still good but I'm guessing that eventually they'll need to be replaced.

Hey man, I noticed your comment on RL on the "996 door speaker enclosure" thread. Glad you set them on the straight and narrow regarding the 2 ohm resistance of the stock speakers. The problem IMHO is that not only are the OEM 5.25 door speakers 2 ohm, but the amp output is designed for the 2 ohm resistance. Adding a 4 or 8 ohm would negatively affect sound quality as I found out first hand in my experiment.
