    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Until now, I've had my subwoofer and amplifier under the floor in my trunk and my spare tire in the garage... Today I decided to put the spare tire and accompanying equipment back under the floor with the amplifier, throw some spacers on the face of the subwoofer box and mount it in a down-firing position in the trunk itself. The sound quality is a bit better, but I miss the stealth look. It's wise to have the spare in there, though.

    ^You could just put a can of fix-a-flat in your trunk like Chrysler did for my Challenger!

    But that IS a joke! I can't believe that. I wonder if other automakers are doing stupid crap like that, or if it's just Chrysler up to their shenanigans.

    I know on certain GM cars, you only get a can of fix a flat.
    That's great except the last 2 tires I had deflated were 100% not fixable (one had the tread come off, the other had a gash in it)

    I don't even know if you could get a compact spare from the factory. Haha.

    When I took delivery of my "new" Mercedes back in 2002 there was no spare just a can of "Fix Falt" and an electric tire pump. Boy was I impressed, talk about squeezing the last nickle from a turnip!

    It's about money AND weight savings. Many manufacturers do this now.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    I dreove 260 miles for an XC meet. Siblings did pretty good.

    She performed beautifully, but I need to start rounding up suspension parts.

    The CHECK OIL LEVEL message was gone this morning, but during susbequent warmer restarts it would be present before I turned the key. I'm thinkin' the connector needs a good cleaning.

    It's always something.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    I put a good 5 hours into the CBX. Installed the new clutch discs and plates, rebuilt the carburetors, and installed them. Fired it up, and the new clutch needs to be adjusted, and the carbs are now leaking from the float bowls... Sigh. Thought I could re-use the gaskets. Ordered some more. Looks like I'll be passing on biketoberfest this year.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Got some parts in for the Triumph AND the Pontiac as well as exhaust manifolds for the 500 (If I can't source the engine mounts, I may as well start someplace). All arrived over the last two days. Manifolds I was particularly impressed with, as I got the set for less than anyone else is asking for even just one (Driver or Passenger side) and the look amazing, regardless of age.

    Ran through a crowd of Bikers myself today, en route to Tampa (See a lot on the interstate this time of year) Happened to be in the Cadillac, which they seemed to enjoy (Most bikers appreciate the Cadillac and the Pontiac. Must be the colour scheme)

    I was actually heading to Busch Gardens (Never been there, but since I am technically a tourist/vacationer in Florida these days, it seemed fitting). I attended of course for their Halloween event, so there was no other realistic choice in car. I have attended the local events, such as that at Universal already. I preferred the Busch Gardens event though, for my own particular reason. Though my company was all females and got distracted for a bit when they all did some big danceoff thing that was being held therein (leaving victoriously) I found something to strike a chord to my own interests. Though not one other person in the park seemed aware or seemed to care at all, there was a gorgeous 1961 Superior used as a brief decoration at the beginning of one of the haunted house attractions. It was essentially impossible to see, save for from the very back angle and quite frankly, most people were probably paying attention to other things. Altogether to even notice it. I took the time to carefully look it over and was privileged with full access to it. It is a car I am actually familiar with, as I have seen it in person before. Not many cars like this one. This one in particular was owned by the late William Alvin Moody (known more famously by his stage name of "Dr. Paul Bearer") as well as a '63, also a Superior. There are very few cars that are truly classier than the ones Superior built.

    Every time I see a Floridian neighbourhood I am rather saddened by the severe lack of them, in preference for the Mustangs, Minivans and the quintessential 2009-2012 Camaro that is in every single suburban driveway.

    Anyhow, I just got home from those shenanigans. Only 7:00 AM. Plenty of time for more Shenanigans.
