no one seems to remember the difference between a hook and an eye anymore

I don't know - what is the difference?
Uh, a hook is an angled thing (like what's on the end of the tow truck), and an eye is the round thing a hook goes into.
Towing Eye
A towing eye is stowed in the car tool kit, located in the battery
cover rear pocket. When required, remove the protective bung (if
fitted), and fit the towing eye to its anchorage point in the radiator
air intake aperture, screwing fully into the tapped boss.
The eye is provided to aid car recovery, such as winching
onto a flatbed car transporter, but only when the car is able to
roll freely.

Sector 111 calls it a "folding front tow hook."
So? It's still properly called a tow "eye" - doesn't matter that everyone calls by an incorrect name... :shrug:

$30 cash in hand!?!?! :eek:

I'll believe that when I see it. I would have had this baby a long time ago but my financing fell through.

I love when you are having a garage sale or something like that and some ******* offers you some lowball offer with "cash money" #1, it's a stupid term. #2, it's not like I was going to take a check or some other kind of non cash money, or non money cash from a guy who couldn't even take a shower or a shave in the past week.
