I remember...

While removing my intake manifold, I had to use the "phone a friend" option when I got stuck. Uncle Scotty came over and we got quite a bit more done, but then we BOTH got stuck. We just couldn't get the loose intake manifold to completely come off the car, and couldn't figure out what the heck was holding it on.

"Phone a friend" option 2 was Will. He said he was just finishing up at SOJ (Saturday), and would stop by on his way home. He propped my hood up full vertical so that he could climb inside the engine bay. Then, standing on my camber plates, inside my garage, he said in a very professorial way, "This is the technical part of intake manifold removal. Hand me that crobar."

(Still makes me smile)

RIP Will.
