It was 82° here yesterday, and on a whim, I drove the Sunbird to work. Tried the A/C (nervously, I might add), just for the heck of it.
Ended early because of rain, but a few decent cars still showed up.
Poor little 2.0 four-cylinder with all of 96 HP and its three-speed automatic doesn’t equal top-notch efficiency.
Cheesiest music video ever? Oh well. Damn good song. Going to cruise the Sunbird this weekend and play it over the tiny Delco speakers.
Putting down new mulch in the flowerbeds today. No truck? No problem.
There were a few cars tonight. Not a lot since it is randomly cold today here and it’s a weeknight. This was a pre-season “kickoff” event.
The Sunbird is out of storage and we are heading to our first cruise-in car show. It’s a pre-season show to get the season started.
Sunbird photo spam. The detailer and his team worked absolute MAGIC today. Full wash and ceramic coating, too. Holy moly. It looks like it’s 1990 again. They spent over eight hours on it and buffed it, too.
She’s getting a full detail and some minor paint correction. Then, she’s going right back into the garage to stay clean and ready for car show and cruise-in season (which starts around here at the beginning of April - weather permitting).
Anyone here drive for Uber or Lyft? Or DoorDash, Instacart, Postmates, UberEats, Grubhub, etc.?
I posted it in the “Forever Cars” thread and got a LOT of responses. Only one person was a little shitty about it, which was shocking to me.
My wife is determined that our next vehicle will be a minivan. I’m determined that it won’t. So, we’ll likely compromise and get a minivan. See how that works? :)
I Got my little ‘Bird out of winter storage today and went for a 40-ish mile cruise through the countryside. She is ever so close to turning over 57,000 miles. The heater worked excellently on this cold, gray winter’s day!
My 6 hit 36k yesterday and my wife’s CX-5 hit 62k today. It is a 2013 Sport model.
Actually, the 3-year/36,000 mile warranty expired in October since I got the car in October 2015. But, I just hit the 36k marker today.
Jolene the Sunbird woke up today and got a new valve (cam) cover gasket, a new air filter, and a new amplifier for the factory radio.
I brought her home today for a bit since it randomly decided to be spring-like outside. The forecast for tomorrow is partly cloudy and 62°.
The windchill is -3° F. Both Mazdas started fine but they were in the garage all night. The garage isn’t heated but is attached to the house so it stays 10-15 degrees warmer than outside.
$3,400 for that? It’s missing its side moldings and its front grille. The red wheels are cool. And it does have low miles (83k).
This is the only contribution I’ll be making to it.
