In the full blazing of this insane heat, my white RM wagon decides to most certainly self-destruct its A/C compressor...so into the shop it goes (again). Of the twelve cars listed below that I've owned or currently own -- SIX of them have had A/C compressors go out. Only one was in warranty, the '02 Avalanche where the thing self-destructed so bad that shrapnel went all through the system and the entire thing had to be ripped out.

Thanks GM... :mad:

The slow as body odor body shop is still working on my DCM wagon (which has already had its A/C compressor replaced...), so the shuttle dropped me off at the storage facility, for some N* time. :highfive:

The ETC felt nimble to the point of twitchy compared to the wagons (and the EXT for that matter). I drove it to Fayetteville and back (50-60 miles) and then swapped out for the Concours for an upcoming trip. I blasted the air and thought how good it was to be "back"...

No, yours would be more appropriate as "Ships named Enterprise" But your graphic left out a few.
