Today I finally got around to trying to install some Rockblocker film
I had received as a 2008 Xmas gift!
Can't really install it in cold weather, but i should've put it on in
the spring. Still, I got the yellow film on the fog lights but they
sent yellow instead of clear for the headlights. DOH!
So, I'm gonna see if they just packed the wrong color or if my wife
ordered the wrong color. I HOPE I can do this without her finding out
about the mixup..
Need to get her 03 Outback inspected. probably put it in the
dealership for a coupla scheduled maintenance things and have them do
the insoection this time. Both cars seem to be running well but the
Outback set the CEL with 3 misfire codes last week. I cleared them and
they haven't coded again. Probably change the fuel filter myself and
maybe get new plugs put in.
I THINK my battery in the WRX is finally getting weak. It's hard to
get a battery around here to last more than 2.5-3 years.
Got some new neighbors on the block. One of then drives a Baja. Looks
like from N. Carolina.
My Legacy rear wheel bearing repair turned into a disaster. Wagon is
parked behind the house. Been looking around for good used rear
knuckle and may have found some. Just been poking around the
neighborhood in my 89 XT6. Had forgotten how well it rides. Other
then that, just enjoying the summer.
**All of that is still a bit woodsie, that's why I was cruising around
up there. They are repaving 63 so that was a pain, but it'll be nice
when it's done. As for Gorgeous, it was the countryside not the car.
The car rides really nice, but it isn't as fun as my ex-2005 (I
actually behaved myself on the backroads!). I'll probably go for
another ride tomorrow or Wednesday. I just got my property tax bill
for it: $432. Yay, the joys of CT.
Wait...you got an excise tax bill on the CAR for $432?!?!?
We haven't had those in Mass for about 20 years!!!
We used to...
I finally got a set of ball joints for my Supra! Oh, Boy! Open roof
If it ever stops raining...
I live in Western Mass, near the VT line. You wanna see some nice rides...
I think since last we spoke, I got a job as a Dell Factory Rep (there are
three of us for W. Mass, SE VT and SW NH). I get to go on some really
great rides. And Springfield is NOT in my territory! ;)
Finally got the second engine running in my 98 forester, put insurance
on it today and will drive it to work tomorrow. The last rebuild I
didn't check out the PCV system, and the engine drank its oil on a 200
mile trip at night. So the heads came back off, had to rebuild the
left one again and another junkyard block. I'll watch this one a bit
**Well, I'm not sure if an excise tax is the same thing, but my town
charges a yearly property tax on one's auto. I got the car in April
08. In Jan 09, I paid a tax bill of $220 to make up the difference
between the 05 Impreza and the 08 one. And now, I have a bill of $432
for the 08. :-/
**Keep wishin! This is the year of the non-summer.
**I went for a ride with my sister and bro-in-law that I'd like to
take again. We drove north to Bish Bash Falls and then into NY, down
to Millerton, NY and then back over to Litchfield County. That was an
**Lucky you....that Springfield is not in your territory :)
Um, I think it's Bash-Bish, IIRC, but yes, I knew the area well in my
mis-spent youth! I used to live In Lenox Mass for a few years, and
traverse to Upstate NY in the Lebenon Valley area, for the Drag Racing, of
I had a dirt bike when I lived there, it was a beat up wreck, but it NEVER
left me stranded (more than 25 feet from home...) and I used to ride all
over the place. I made it almost halfway to the Hudson river once. What a
marvelous place to be!
When I got a job in Hartford I used to drive down Rt 8 into Winstead,
and then 44 into Avon and on to Bloomfield. Long ride, but a nice one!
Had an '80 Corolla back then,and racked a LOT of miles on it!
i don't like being shot at...I have a band and I told them I will NOT play
in Springfield on a Friday or Saturday night, or ANY night, for that
Oh, yeah. It was as fast as taking the Mass Pike to Rt 91, but without the
Dexter Coffin bridge! ;)
Every once in a while 44 would back up right around...er...begins with an
"F"...where "Light 100.9" is...
Watch 22 news from Springfield on Sunday mornings? Every Sat night there's
a frigging shooting or stabbing!
