first of all you should NEVER EVER EVER take your car to an effing monkeyhut 
speedy oil luber. i can think of at least 4 people off the top of my head 
with stripped drain plugs, ancilliary damage, and most recently my brother 
who's engine and transmission were filled with new juice but WERENT DRAINED 
FIRST. yeah, that makes a big, smoky mess. this was about 2 hours into his 
drive across country this past fall. fun.

i will defiantly shout out to the crew at german auto salvage [aka 
wolfsport] in berkeley.  those guys rock.
