Well yesterday the car was running. Now its moving! Had to do the garage shuffle today. Had to load my 68 Camaro into the trailer for an upcoming show and the trailer needs to sit where the 55 was. So checked the brakes, and fluids, fired up the 55 and it moved on its own since 2009. Clutch still needs adjustment and…
The lunch was nostalgic and good fun, memories and catching up was had. Alas, she’s already seeing someone. Bumming, but what can one do at that point?
Hi Oppo, I’m not yet ready to return, though I did want you all to know that I’m in a relatively better situation.
I’ve gotten so caught up in the bad news that I haven’t spilled the good news!
The XF must have seen my posts stating I would replace it with an XJL-SS (or even Stinger) because it stepped up its game tremendously! The driving has become sharper than a toothbrush in a prison riot and the performance is equally engaging. I’d know, I am a Libra.
I just saved a ton of money on my car insurance by switching to another provider! I’m for serious!! My insurance is now (starting tomorrow) cheaper by $225 a month, aka $1,350 every 6 months, aka $2,700 annually, aka uncle Wobbles can stop wearing his underwear inside-out on Mondays and Thursdays.
Ask and ye shall receive or something, anyways. I settled on a name, Germaine. The first week I had her she wasn’t eating i was using thawed mice and she doesn’t seem to care for them. So I switched to live ones and that seemed to do the trick.
Now that I have my own house, I have SO MUCH SPACE for diecasts. As I painted my “smart wall” I decided to shift my cars around a bit. This meant that my Audi R8 GT now gets to spend time protected in a case alongside the Porsche Carerra GT. The smart got a case all to itself.
So here’s what’s happening with both cars. One I hope will be covered by warranty, the other will cost me some monies. Ford hasn’t fixed the aluminum hood bubbling problem on Mustangs since 2005, and mine now has it and it’s 10 days short of a year old.
A while ago, I noticed a tiny, quiet squeak. A faint eek-eek-eek-eek as I drove along. No one else heard it except for me—until now.
I have semi-ranted several times that I’m setting up a debt free lifestyle and will no longer purchase cars with anything other than fat stacks of cash money. I want to slide into the dealership and make it rain like Dave Ramsey up in there. In all seriousness, I’ve started setting aside $450 a month for the…
Reliability has been...how do I put this....exceptional! Even a Lexus RX would blush so far. If this WK2 were my uncle it would be the one that worked. And the maintenance! I’m no mermaid so I don’t math too well, but you don’t need algae bra in order to tell this thing has been pretty darn cheap to run!
Just remind me what cars you’re around day to day. It can include your parent’s or spouse’s too if those are cars you’re around as well. There have been so many garage updates that I forget who got a what where or was looking for a how back when whyever biddy.
Long time, no see! I’ve been falling behind in my updates. I seem to be writing about everything else but not giving any of you many updates on myself. So, without even further delay, let’s dive in!
Feels like forever since I last wrote, and boy do I have a bit to write about! So, what’s happened in the time I last addressed you folks? Well, Donald Trump won the election, Jill Stein failed to do anything worthwhile, and...well I met family I will love forever. So, let’s update!
Just a few days away from the one year anniversary of purchasing the WK2. To think it had 31,619 miles on it when I put my signature down (currently at 76,189 miles). So far I’ve spent just under $2,200 over the year to maintain this rig at 100 percent. That means upkeep is just under $0.05 per mile.
Hmm, were to start....
About two weeks ago I was driving the Amanti and couldn’t figure out what was so different about it compared to the WK2 or XF (other than the obvious). Then it hit me, there were no rattles or squeaks in the interior. Whether traveling at 90 mph, going over broken pavement, full powered audio system, or variations in…
Update 1: I'm planning on bulking up a bit more before getting the half sleeve done, plus I'm still in the process of deciding on what I want exactly.
The world of emergency services is complex, intense, and we should be talking about it. Welcome to Code 3; the new hub for all things firefighting, law enforcement, and emergency medicine here on Kinja. We'll discuss technology, techniques, events, and everything else that comes back to first response.
