i really dont have a problem with "experts" but like what was stated experts only have an oppinion and sometimes its wrong and sometimes it comes from an alterior motive. so experts are ok as long as you understand that its ok to disagree with them.
my issue here is the format of the written text in this on line posting that Mark thoughfully re posted here. No offense Mark, you alone with thousands of others took it for its face value. but that is the party that bothers me. it is obvious to me it was written by a non expert and so many people are apt to belive it,
one real tip off was the "kick out the tail light ,when in the trunk " comment. my family is in the car business and i have to say, cars are not made like that. there may be a rare exception but for chevy, ford , toyota ect they are a double wall pressed body form. the tail light housing sits in a indentation on the outside with a small hole for the bolt to fit though that holds the entire light housing to the car body.
so sorry to say no waving will be happening.
but as i was saying it was written from a non expert using dialog and context in a way to "prove" its valid. repeatedly sighting examples of " this instuctor" and his convertations with criminals.
it seems clear to me that the origianl author didnt have a clue and knew it ,so he felt the need to ad in such comments to validate his statements.
