You guys have inspired me to pull her out of the garage and drive her. Took the vert out in the Nor'easter yesterday and headed north on the NJ turnpike.
I figured it would be a good time to test 9yrs of wax build up against rock chips FYI ...Hankook Ventus summer tires hydroplaning in the left lane at 75 while
passing and eighteen wheeler will make you soil your pants . I was hoping to find some salt on the road to coat my undercarriage but it was too warm.
I headed home after testing our cars polybutylene bushings against some pretty nasty potholes which enhanced the squeaking. Upon my return
home I parked her in front of the house so I can be toasty by putting my dd in her place next to my wife's car in the garage . For 9 yrs cold winters I
sacrificed my warmth thinking that I was helping preserve her but really I was just hurting her . My eyes are wide open now...I have been freed .
I can't wait for the weather to break so I can take her to the automatic car wash and then to the mall so I can park next to normal people. I'm not going down
alone though...going to go to car shows and try to convince friends like dale to drive his immaculate T-bird with low miles to just drive her...they don't bring
no money anyway, I'm sure he will have some choice words for me but hey cars are meant to be driven. Hopefully I can get enough wear on her so I can
do a full restoration in 20 yrs or so...nothing like having projects to keep you busy while I'm 80. I feel better now... the burden has been lifted. And to
think ,I thought I was happy...who knew happy is burning through that first clutch or going thru 3 sets of tires. Carrol did say to drive'em even though
I think he meant on the track but yeah, can't wait . Probably gonna get a full roll cage so I can track her, grass is only gonna get cut once every 2 weeks now
its all about driving her for now on. Thanks guys!!!
