Don't know if we have one but this could be fun.
If you cut your floor out to get to your fuel pump.

Sometimes you have to remove a vacume hose and take the wife for a spin so she will be OK with you buying the new part because "it will fix it". ;)

I can't figure out what you're trying to day. Is English your native language? Is this a Google translation from some other language?

Ahh, I don't know HOW you figured that out, but I'm certain you're right. It still looks like babelfish or Google Translate. Why not "You might be and Isuzu driver IF.."?

But I''ll play along. :)

You assume the guy in the Bimmer next to you is thinking, "Wow, lucky guy!"
