Another amazing feat....as performed by Sam!

Sam has this old beater car that he uses to drive back and forth to work. He has kept this thing running quite well, even though it has over 200,000 miles on it.
Recently the car started losing power. I'm not sure the exact details, but when Sam finally figured out the problem, it turned out to be cheaper to replace the entire engine than to fix the specific part.
As usual, I thought he was nuts. Does he think he is a mechanic all of a sudden?
But Sam persevered! He ordered an engine online and over the last week (in his VERY limited free time) he replaced the engine!
Look at all those parts/wires/tubes/ahhhh!
And last night it was finished. I'm sure he held his breath as he turned the key that first time.....but it started right up!
I am SO proud of my husband. Seems he can, in fact, do ANYTHING he sets out to do!

Yay for Sam! The next time I need some work done on my car, I know who I'll be calling! Hey, I should've gotten him to put new tires on my car... bet he could have done it!!

Wow, Sam! I bet there wasn't even a leftover screw when he finished? What a man!

Are you sure this is the same guy who's blog I read? I think there are two Sams out there, hehe.

What a great guy!
