They want $38.00 for a little piece of metal
that does not even weight a pound.
So I thought, how can I get one cheaper?????
OK how about a junk yard?????
Went to two in my area,
all had the same chip out of it as mine did..
So I enquired around via email and NA DA.
Went to Cormier Chevrolet Dealer yesterday 1/2/01
asked for John (parts distributor).
Gave John the flyer I made to place on Caprice's I see while out & about. Told him about some of the great Caprice owners I have met on-line.
And that I was ready to purchase the Hood Ornament.
John sold it to me at the wholesale price $28.31 + tax(Thank You John!).
Picked up my "Emblem" yesterday 1/4/01, and went right over to my mechanic's to put it on.
The shop was buzzin as usual....
Showed Miles the new Emblem and popped the hood.
Took a look to see how the old one comes off, there are two small nuts with thread notches in them.
Miles came over with a small wrench, made sure it fit and handed it to me.
OK - Now I know the old rhyme...
Lefty Loosey, Righty Tighty.
So I turned Left, and turned & turned & turned, but the nut was just spinnin.
Miles walked by again & I told him the Rhyme and that nothing was happening. He tried & said because the nuts are underneath I have to turn Right.
I did & off they came, put the new one on and had Miles do a check.
Asked him if I got a Pat On The Head or A Kick In The Butt.....
I got a Pat On The Head!
