      I figure they would have intervened by now if they knew about... uh, well, no need for all those unnecessary details, amirite?

      Finding someone with a Carfax account might be a starting point.

      Mostly, I'd like to see a current Carfax on it... you are correct....
      Since I started losing boost, consuming a quart within 2,000 miles, and finding the clutch pedal to have started with the now infamous "shenanigans" of loss of pedal and occasional non-engagement, and, ummmm, oh yeah..., increased bucking upon spool-up..... yeah... I'd want to see how the boy is doing these days. Reflash # 112? Couple even newer modules replaced? Third clutch (master, slave, whatever.... plates...)
      I just need to know.
      He almost
      won "Buddy" status. He was so close.

      Yeah, I gave him a Male persona - King Crimson. I don't really "get" the whole Female reference to cars, boats, etc.... It's like, I'm not staring lovingly at the exhaust tips and becoming aroused or anything.
      So yeah, if a car makes the grade and passes the tests of time, it wins Buddy status. Not as in a living thing. Let's not get carried away here. Just as in a Reliable Friend that you can count on. Not a so-called friend that makes you count the visits to the repair shop.

      Well...... I cite Jerry Van Dyke as an example of the living being concept. Although, I wasn't implying "living being". Just a Buddy. As in the toy "My Buddy and Me".

      October is Car Buddy Awareness Month. Generally, the Bud takes care of us in the wilds of roadopia, and asks so little in return. I am humbled at the selflessness that they possess.
      So, remember to check the Bud's oil, fluids, wear points, under-chassis cleanliness (big rust inhibitor - Prevention!) and take the Bud in for a checkup. So many problems can be caught early and with proper diagnosis and care, the Bud can survive the cold and cruel season so much better. Maybe treat it to a tank of premium, just to say "Thanks Bud" ....This One's For You!"

      I Admit That I Get a Tad Carried Away with having Holidays and Birthday Parties For My Car. We All Have Our Weaknesses.

      So...... what anybody/everybody/somebody here doin' with their Cars
      this weekend ..... even if you don't count them as Buddies. No judgements.
      Me, I hope to get in a little Fall Leaves Looping in..........
      Not totally "Ripe" yet, but a little of this....

      Well..... I hit the road extra early today to increase the probability that the population would remain low. It was. Very low. There is a toll road that stretches from North to South between Philly area, through my little slice of Heaven and on upwards into the edge of New York State. There's a large tunnel at my early starting point (which is very cool - like a Time Tunnel effect) . But , alas, I did no Leaf Looking because it was dark. Ooops. Not like in Summer when sunrise is very early. Turns out that there is a Hot Air Balloon that usually shows up on days with a good weather forecast. Which it was today. I'd love to try it sometime, but, I don't like heights very much.
      The good news is that although I didn't get to see leaves turning color, I did get to see some great numbers on my speedometer and Tachometer. With long straights and no one around I was able to safely test some high limits (now that I'm at over 12K miles ) . Wasn't looking for zero to sixty stuff... just some rolling at 60 bursts of "passing gear" , which is like the second in the series while doing a gradual foot plant. Gadzooks! 110mph comes quick on a flat surface area. And the tach is at around 2200 rpms! Sun gradually cut through and made for some very eerie fog patches that hovered like cotton wads in the distance, left and right. (pretty high elevation on this particular section. You can see for many miles in either direction). Did a round trip which cost me 13 bucks total. Expensive, but a very well maintained road and at those prices, not much "company". Great "Italian Tune-Up" for the Phoenix Phlyer. Can't wait for turning the clocks back an hour in November. Didn't realize how long it takes for any light this time of year. But, you have to get in what you can in the NE before the Snow/Ice Crap comes.
      Party On.

      Those are some beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing.
      Drives up on the country roads are great regardless of what car you drive.

      Another weekend approaches. I should hope none of us spend car time on Dynos or fiddling under our hoods in hopeless attempts to turn salamanders into dragons. Ride your reptile as is and enjoy.

      I was born in the fifties, came of age in the 60's. That should give enough information to understand. Thank You, in advance!

      What if I spend time under the car and under the hood doing the semi-annual renewal of the Fluid of Eternal Life?

      It's a proprietary blend, but it involves Mice.
