          What's a Mark VIII air bag feel like?

            Am I the only one that finds it ironic the message center is displaying "Check Front Turn Lamps"?

            • It should say; go find your lights. Air bags feel better than a mouthful of steering wheel.

              • No injuries just a bruise on my forearm from the airbag
                I wasn't going fast enough for my head to hit the bag
                So now my (I'm stupid moment)storie.
                Fairly simple I was taking a right turn on to the freeway entrance I looked up at our green light to make sure I wouldn't need to stop and at the same time a bicycle pulled out in front of the guy in front of me and bam not enough time to stop.
                Speed was slow but my bumper went under his so he only had scratches on his bumper.
                The bicycle did run a stop sign but I sould have seen it coming.
                This is my first at fault accident hitting someone and I feel ****ty about it.

                • Glad to hear you're ok. That Cyclist really lucked out, too..

                  Too bad about your car though, I liked that one.

                  What are your impressions of the new ride? I was just looking at that one on Craigslist. It was filthy, and I'd recognize those wheels anywhere. Is it in decent shape?

                  • New one has a miss on cyl. one, trans shutter, exhaust leak, bad headliner, some missing clear coat, a few deep scratches and end link and shock rattling.
                    The good it drives young the springs they put in are tall but not spongy and very little rust.

                        Sounds like a pretty average used Mark VIII. Too bad about the headliner.. I wonder if Bill has that, too..

                        • Thanks for the offer bill
                          I think I have the bags in storage if not I'll be on touch.
