Good bugglys to redo are getting harder to find and people are getting proud of them too
They are definitely getting harder to find... and the owners or figuring that out too.

Bill, I guess you found your car keys to Ol'yeller. Or did you have to get one of those after market ignition switches. If you found the key, was it in the last place you looked?

[QUOTE=Louis;626355]Mazda on passenger side. Have not noticed that before.

My Toyota's and Nissans have had the filler cap on the driver side. It is much more convenient for me.

Ever consider these cars are originally right side drive anyway? I doubt they switch sides for fuel fill up in production of American cars. Hummm.

Some years back, around when I was turning 40 or so, I was worried because I kept forgetting things that I might be getting Alzheimer's.
During a routine checkup at my doctor I told him about my concerns.
He just laughed and explained that misplacing things in not Alzheimer's,, but if you finally find the keys and don't know what to do with them,, well,, then you got a problem

I believe now that as we get older we have so much knowledge stuffed into our heads that when new stuff comes in it just pushes non-essential things out.

Well I guess I have to say I'll go out of my way for a Manual Transmission. We all have our vices...or something like that.

Look at the bright side you'll never smack your door on those pesky steel poles they like to plant around the gas pumps
