My father and uncle owned a repair shop in NC in the late 40s to mid 50s. He taught me well. He lost money and eventually his shop because he was a Tucker automobile investor in that post war period. He taught me to work with my hands and my mind. I’ve worked in the car industry for two periods. During my early…
I’ve seen many recent articles about Takata declaring bankruptcy. I’ve been encouraged to write our politicians about so few of the cars having been repaired. I’m amazed that I was one of the 2% of Audi owners involved to get a replacement. VAG took it to the next level by having some of their involved replacements…
Last year I posted pics and talked about what type of city Akron is and the old money neighborhood where the show is held. Once again it didn’t let me down. The same house where the Hertz Mustang sat last year had two Ferrari on the lawn. Surprised? Not really, this show and the area surrounding it always delivers…
Sunday June 18th 2017. You see everything at this show from antique to modern. Tours of the house are available. On the list of America’s castles.

But I like the colors.
By Enter the Haggis from Toronto. They have a sort of Celtic, pop, country mix that had me downloading about 20 of their songs when I first heard them a few yrs ago.
The Stan Hywet 60th Annual Fathers Day car show on June 18th. Then a good euro show in late July in Cleveland complete with a biergarten. Thought I’d post these early this year so people can include them in their plans. Both have some entry fees. The food is great at both but completely different. More of a fair food…
Had car at dealership today. Audi decided to use a different source for the new air bag. Now if Ford will ever get us a new airbag for the other car I’d feel even better. Audi A3 for your time.
Curious. I’m pretty sure a Chrysler SUV had 14. Will the Atlas with 18 be VWs effort to at least win the cupholder wars? Where will this insanity end?
Just clicked on Gizmodo on the top bar and got this Pimp My Ride article from 2006. Wow, took me a moment to get back through the portal. Glad to be back in 2017. And of course the connected link is fubar, maybe.
I had a few hundred pictures to go through and finally got enough work done at home to be able to pick a few more shots to show how it was. Had a blast. It was a great weekend, other than racing I met up with more Opponauts, had sloppy joes at the fire station, hiked 20+ miles (in rain part of the time), hiked up…
Got to see Dusty Ventures, Roundbadge, Arch Duke, McSeanerson, Longbow(?) and other OPPOnians. Hiked a bunch to 4 stages of the rally. I think one of the other guys said his GPS reading yesterday showed we walked 14 miles. I’ll need to reset the calibration for my FitBit. I walked roughly 5 miles Friday after driving…
One of techs says we got it from Spain. Seems our auction buyers are getting a little adventurous. Its a 1965 model I think. Techs said thats what ID chassis plate was for.
I got my first photo credit . Was for a charity event but I had to laugh today when I saw myself mentioned at the Cleveland Euro Car Cruise-In. They had my pictures from last year. I helped promote the event on about 4 forums.
I probably have about 3k from there, need to share a few.
Still amazed it didn’t ruin the rim. The tough V rated tire sidewall must have saved the wheel.
This is insane. An under 6k miles HF. I could afford this with savings but my wife would kill me. Somebody is in for a treat.
