Fashionable, but unable to tell fact from fiction

So you don't like your accomodations in the frying pan? How about relocating to the fire?

Well, here's the deal. My van broke down in San Jose (Coleman exit on 880). Good money on the alternator having gone bad. We have it parked at a gas station and I'm in Berkeley right now trying to figure out what exactly to do with it.

It needs to go to a mechanic (obviously). Does anyone know of any reputable mechanics in San Jose who can deal with a '91 Ford Aerostar? I'd consider doing it myself, but I certainly don't have the tools with me and the alternator's a bit of a pain to get to.

The story I mentioned before: On Sunday night I received my first ever ticket. A speeding ticket no less. The cop claims I was doing 58 in a 45. He also claims he got me by radar (even though I saw him and slowed down, so I figure it has to be after he started tailgating me and I sped up to keep a safe distance between). He _also_ (and here's the good part) claims that I was the only car on the road (conveniently ignoring the red bronco in front of me) and claims that my car is blue.

I'm reasonably sure I'll get out of it. I spent the first 10 minutes afterwards a little bummed. The rest was spent cackling in delight at all the different ways I can make his life more interesting.

Anyway. That's not important obviously. Dealing with the car is. Anyone who knows anything will be greatly appreciated. 8)

Oh. And happy thanksgiving. =/
