So yesterday this guy pulls in to have me fix his old Genesis speakers. 
I get all disoriented when a pristine 88 5k turns out to be his ride. 
"Everything works" he proudly proclaims!  So we fix his speakers in 15
minutes and talk Audi for two hours...

He points out that the savings in *insurance alone* has paid completely
for his car.
