Re: Have manual transmissions become an anti-theft device?

I only wish they still offered more vehicles with with a manual transmission. I really don't want some new fangled 10 speed trans that has "lifetime" fluid and costs 10 grand to fix. It would need to be 13 years old before I could afford one anyway. My 2006 Silverado is a 5 speed and I don't mind s...

Re: AKC or a clone?

My memory ain't what it used to be either but it seems like I had a couple with serrated blade that had the AKC stamp but I wouldn't swear to it.

Re: Quality
