It isn’t green anymore, but still needs work. But I needed to clean the filter ahead of the storm that is rolling in. It is supposed to rain hard, and then I will be traveling for work. Santa Barbara Wednesday night, Monterey Thursday night.
Some samples of what the new shop is sending me they are going to replace struts & towers in front, idler arm, and do an oil change. He says I have a small oil leak that he said to wait until we have to do something that has us tearing it down more.
In a week, I will be in Italy for a 10 day vacation in a tour with my family.
I took her for a spin around the corner because I don’t like any car to sit too much, but she isn’t quite roadworthy enough for regular use.
I think Toby is a handsome boy.
I am most upset that I have to spend my money on some boring shitwagon instead of making the kid’s T Bird’s 429 Thunderjet crush his enemies, see them driven before him, and let him hear the lamentations of their women (if they can hear it over the straight pipes).
I let it speak for itself. This was my Saturday.
I am having lunch at my local bar and grill, and I get an awful phone call.
Pulled the exhaust off the Vespa to see what blew last week. All the exhaust and gasket parts were in good shape, thankfully, because customer service for hand made Italian exhaust is nonexistent.
He is persistent.
Robert Shaw was so fucking cool.
No Sunchaser. Hopefully worthy substitutes
It came by FedEx yesterday and I activated it today. I like it. My wife just switched from iPhone to Pixel2+. She is happy, and likes it better.
No Sunchaser this weekend, as it is in the shop.
Sunchaser is headed to the shop this morning, and I am getting a new phone (it arrives at the office yesterday). I hope you have a good Friday ahead of you.
It predates Pumpkin. I had a cat named Charlie who was a bad ass who fought and defeated neighborhood cats over multiple homes in our rental days. The first house we owned was on a cul-de-sac, and he kept all cats out. Think was significant, because our other cat at the time, Trouble, had a big attitude that he could…
Pumpkin was here.
I found a really good shop for the Sunchaser and Cressida work. The owner started out as a Toyota specialist over 35 years ago, and old Celicas like mine were his “bread and butter” for a long time.
I am going to the office briefly, but otherwise, fuck this day. I had a bad day yesterday, got almost no sleep last night, and have had it with everyone’s bullshit.
