I've gotten some good info from this forum just by searching for whatever my problem is at the time. Most recently, information from this community helped me figure out that I need a couple of HVAC parts (the blower motor resistor and vacuum reservoir). Before this, I found info here on replacing the clockspring. Before that, I can't even remember. I just know I've been coming here for awhile without an account, and God only knows how much money this community has saved me over the years. I appreciate that help, even though you didn't know you were helping me out at the time (and who knows how many others are getting the same help from this place?).
Since I've used this forum as a resource for so long, I figure an account might be useful if I need to ask any questions or just bull around. Without an account, it's easy to start feeling like an information parasite. At least now, you'll have a username to attach to the parasite.
