What?! That's ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous.

I guess when your plugs foul out, it's easier just to crumple the thing 
up and recycle it with the beer cans.

Prior to the V8's, the only vehicles I'd ever worked on were an old 1970 
Ford Ranger (back when the Ranger had 2 20-gallon gas tanks in it, and 
got about 8 gallons to the mile or something like that) and a 1994 Ford 
Ranger. The 1970 model was a little easier to work on, but the 1994 made 
me say lots of bad words. I was kind of wary of working on the V8's, but 
I've so far I've been pretty impressed with them. I'm about to do the 
front brake pads on V8 #2, and while the illustrations from the Bentley 
are a little confusing, I imagine I'll be able to sort it out without 
much difficulty.
