We wouldn't need most of your fine suggestions if people would just take a
break from trying to be stupid.....
1 Over-engineering coolers adds needless waste.... purchase prices will be
driven high in a marketplace where low cost is the over-riding decision
2 If you need a magnetic filter, is is probably too late for a magnetic
filter. Once we experience ferrous metal wear, the die is already cat.
3 Bypass oil filters were the norm in the 40s and 50s. Full flow filtration
systems using good quality filters are all that is required. When flowing,
bypass filters rob oil flow from the lubrication system. We have no way of
knowing when they do stop flowing. Nothing will replace timely oil changes.
4 Over-engineering adds needless waste. My SuperCrew has a factory oil
filter.... yet the hottest days in my year barely reach 80F.
5 The 5R110 TorqueShift features an external spin on filter. However, I
still remove the oil pan to see what there is to see. There's a magnet in
there and if it is clinging on to ferrous materials.....
6 Yep... lets add places for insulating road debris to cling to. It's always
a good idea to add cooling devices that require airflow... especially in
areaas that don't get any airflow.
7 Many vehicles offer service reminders. How this will save crude oil is
8 A warning light? The bulb on the end of my dipstick has never
malfunctioned. Besides, if the oil level is low and is never topped off,
aren't we saving crude oil?
9 Better than an elecric cooling fan.... how about we incorporate a fan on
to the alternator shaft? Dang... they already did that....
10 Ahhhh.... yes, more foglights so those bozos can blind us old geezers in
town... Oh, how I love those fog lights.... I love 'em so much that they
occasionally bring tears to my eyes.
11 Yes.. I like it... purple lights flashing out "I'm an idiot" so we can
avoid them.... don't forget to turn yours on.
12 Hmmmm.... I thought checking tire pressures at the time of service
included the spare. Mind you, if we trade the donut in for a full size, full
cost spare, we could always kick the kids out of the back seat so we can
retain trunk space. The old VW Beetle had a real nifty low spare tire
warning pressure gauge... the windshield washers would quit working...
13 I'd like to see a low tire pressure warning sysem that actually worked,
didn't cost a gazillion bux to fox after the kid at the tire store screwed
up the transponder, and didn't require someone to actually try and figure
out what "warning... low tire" meant on the message center.
14 this would eliminate 90% of the drivers on the road. Driving is a
privilege, not a right. There are vat numbers of people that aren't good
with machinery.... and a car is just another piece of machinery...
15 Most mirrors do fold out of the way.... however, as a motorist, it
behooves me to use my God-given senses to stay out of ttrouble. Those times
when I turn int a pedestrian or cyclist, I should also use my God-given
senses to stay out of harms way... Quit staring at your navel... it's
16 Yes.... about 2 or 3 tons of armour should about do it..... especially
since this will save crude oil stocks.
17 Most everything I work on has sway bars front and back.... don't know
what you're looking at.
18 I like this one..... for most instances the roof should be sufficient
roll-over protection.... well aside from the fact that we should drive with
idea that the roof should remain pointing up. However, we could add a 12
point cage to the "under-armour" ... the added weight should preseve crude
oil stocks for years to come.
19 None of Fords new vehicles feature drum brakes as anything other than
parking brakes. Drum brakes worked well for many. many years.... right up
until they invented idiots.
20 and 21 I'll have some of what you're smoking.
We will not see any reduction in traffic accidents untl people start
treating motor vehicle operation with the respect it deserves.... We oooh
and ahhh over aerobatic teams and such concentrating on each manoeuver...
then we climb on to the freeway talking on the cell phone enjoying our
beverages and snacks, ready stuff, lost in our tunes and paying more
attention to the kids in the back seat (providing we didn't put the spare
there) than to our driving.... all the while, instead of working with the
other fliers in our formation, we are pissed at them because they are all
idiots... especially the ones that are obeying the laws.
