Well, its dark out, so no current pictures. I have a couple of older ones. I just moved back home after like 5 years, so this is actually slightly more interesting than a month or so ago at my old apartment.


1996 Trans Am, LT1, 6 speed, under a cover. been under the knife for a while. I just gotta finish up the rear suspension, exhaust, and then it would be road worthy, but I'll probably wait to reg it till next spring. I want to upgrade the brakes now.



2001 Jeep Cherokee, 4.0/Auto, my daily driver. Needs tires. Put about 65 or so on the ones on there.



2006 Jeep Liberty - 2.8l CRD, 5 speed auto, my dad's daily driver.

2000 Jeep Cherokee - 4.0/auto, my dad's gf's dd - no pic, but its the same sandy tan as the wrangler. hence why she bought it. She liked the size and styling of my jeep, and thought the two tan jeeps would "Match". I wish i was joking.

1999 Jeep Wrangler, 4.0/5sp, my dad's gf's old car - Needs a brake line and new wheels, and probably everything suspension wise. She has done next to nothing in repairs, except when something breaks. So it rides like shit. Because it sits, water sits in the wheels and rusts the inside, just below the hub, causing pinhole leaks in the wheels. Has happened to two of the wheels.

1995 Toyota Camry Wagon, 4cyl/auto, dad's old car. - no pic. Been sitting since my dad got the Liberty. now needs a fuel return line, exhaust and a brake line. Also, think it needs a vacuum hose up top. But, it fired right the hell up when I started it yesterday after charging the battery. Has been housing Trans Am parts. Next day off I'll be getting under it to fix the two lines, then it goes up on craigslist.

Don't even need to go that far. Try changing your oil on concrete in January.

Grab onto the frame like a man and slide under. Don't use the argument that your hands are full; you should have set your tools and parts down under there already. I can probably get under my truck quicker than you could get on a creeper, and its no contest getting out. I can throw myself out from under my truck and back onto my feet in one motion. You don't move while laying on the ground. I suppose if you're not strong enough to grab ahold of something and pick yourself up, you do need the creeper, but that really makes you a pussy.

I have an old TV/Appliance moving blanket I got from my dad's old business I use. I've got an old shitty driveway, not smooth, frost heaved in places, and its just more comfortable when you're laying down there without the driveway digging into your back. Moving around on the pavement isnt a problem, its just sitting there for the duration with pebbles digging into your back.

Now cardboard, thats saved for the winter, for insulation. Or, I'll toss a piece under there as an "in case" for fluids that might miss the bucket.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and one of those "Knee saver" foam pads for kneeling. Kneeling on old, knurled pavement is NOT fun.

fuck anyone who hasn't used a piece of cardboard to do work under a car. It provides decent insulation from the cold concrete, it adds a little cushion, and it prevents fluids from staining your nice concrete driveway.

Cardboard is easy, free (you'd throw it away otherwise) and disposable insulation, how is that a bad thing?

A real man wouldn't even use a shirt on a frozen concrete slab to work on their car.
