I'm pretty sure you broke it and now you'll either have to pay for it or add BBQ sauce.

Your car your choice!!

If you were from Phila you would have known to order your car without onions, just like a cheesesteak

Stop eating onion rings in the car.

Sorry, just another useless smart-*** comment instead on a useful, helpful reply. It's what we do here.

Nope, but it's tough to find a really good cheese steak down here in SW Florida but I can assure you we've found where to get them!! How are you doing up in PA ( aka: Potholes Abound) ? Hope all is well and we do enjoy endless summer down here.

I had a Chinese Food smell escape from a digital ammeter before it totally melted and caught fire. Could be electronics.

In all seriousness, it could and most probably is a wire smoldering in your steering wheel. You should get it checked.

I don't believe there's been a serious post in the entire thread (except #16) including the opening one.

But it was the OP who said he found the cheese steak behind the screen.

​​Sadly I could see someone doing that! Lol!
