I had so many tools stuck around in the cubbies and under the seat that the dealer asked me if I was a girl scout.

Yea, me too but I'm a tool freak. I made my living for 10 years as a flat-rate line mechanic (I did tranny & engine overhauls etc) in a Chevrolet dealership so good tools where a necessity for me back then.

When I left the dealer, I became a Snap-On tool dealer so then I REALLY had access to anything I wanted.

I now have a three & a half car garage filled with so many tools (TIG & MIG welders/hydraulic presses/glass bead blaster/three Snap-On tool boxes etc etc etc)that I can't fit any cars in the garage (although I did squeeze the Harley in there)

If I listed all of them, there'd be one post on this page.

I could easily build a house from the foundation up, including roofing, siding, electrical, plumbing, doors, windows, and underground electrical/drainage, and I have the tools to do any kind of fine electrical or electronic work, including soldering and measurement devices.

I'm the Imelda Marcos of tools.

Well, that, and there's a room, 200 feet under our basement, measuring 180'W x 300'D x 36'H, with 16"-thick concrete walls that are covered with pegboard, tools, outlets, and cabinets.

It'll be open for tours when I connect it via tunnel to the Niagara gorge.

So, Squish, I've been wondering. What do you use that turkey baster for??

Roasting turkeys under the hood. Doesn't everyone do that? :lol:

It's for replacing power steering and brake fluids from the reservoir. The baster sucks the old stuff out.

I have a hammer where the head slides up and down the shaft everytime I swing it. I have a set of screw drivers with almost all but 2 screwdrivers are missing, a couple minature screwdrivers, cheap pair of needle nose pliars that are rusted, pair of pliers, a pipe wrench, tape measure, completely rusted out box cutter and a cordless drill with 1 drill bit missing and 1 broken flathead attachment. :('

I think we need to take up donations for Scott.

By the way, you should get rid of that hammer. If that head flies off on a hard swing, you could be looking at anything from a concussion to death.
