My wife got me a gift certificate for Father’s Day to have my car detailed. I’m very impressed with the results.
My wife, son, and I took my 2016 6 Touring on a six hour road trip to the Smoky Mountains today. Averaged 70-75 MPH through the mountains. And got 33 MPG. Not bad. Just cracked 40,000 miles as we hit Pigeon Forge.
Post up your car’s decals. My 6 has three on the rear window. Those who know me know my love for The Golden Girls. And Deadpool. And, I still have my “Baby On Board” decal even though my son is two-years-old now. That’s the extent of my sticker collection, though. My Sunbird is decal free and likely to stay that way.
Took Jolene the Sunbird about 30 miles out of town yesterday to a large cruise-in car show. She was the only J-body there, unsurprisingly. Observations: The A/C in this car is as cold or colder than the A/C in my 2016 Mazda. I actually had to turn it down, and I’m pretty hot natured due to being a bigger guy. The…
Sold it to a guy for his seventeen-year-old daughter. She had a mint ‘99 Camry and ran it low on oil and blew the engine. So, he said she’s lucky to be getting anything. I can understand that!
I had the car professionally detailed for my wife for Mother’s Day. It’s become sort of a tradition for us.
My aunt found a bargain of a RAV4 (2003 with 76,000 miles for $4k) so she left her 2000 Corolla with me to sell. She took her plate back to Indiana with her, though, so I can’t cruise around in this classy automobile. Oh well.
Better news about my dog, Ginger!
Got news on my dog today that I didn’t want to hear.
Our CX-5 is getting some age but is still a great car. We bought it brand new in December 2012 with 6 miles.
The show was open to all makes and models, but was sponsored by “SirBrit”, a local British car club. So, there were a lot of MGs, Triumphs, and Jaguars. Which I was fine with because they’re awesome.
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.
