It's Wed, but with tomorrow off for the holiday, and then back at work on Fri, I don't know if it's hump day or not.  It's very confusing.  Especially with a car show Fri afternoon.

The Mustang got a tune-up, and found that the vacuum advance on the distributor was broke, and the 30+ year old part had no support, so a new distributor was put in, and carb adjusted, and timing, and all the other goodness that goes along with it, and man oh man, it runs so much better now.  I'm hoping the MPG goes up some, cuz it was only getting about 15 mpg, which I think is less than I got back in the '90s, and I'm using better gas (ethanol-free gas, 91 octane).  Gonna get some driving in Fri to the show, so will be nice to see how it is at speed.

It's amazing how one little tiny part can change your whole driving experience.  Have fun at the Show on Friday.

Happy almost weekend Lobby.  Had a lazy day off yesterday.  Saw Spider-Man, ate ribs, watched the Cubbies win.  2.5 more hours at the office, then it's outta here and heading to a show.  Hoping the rain misses us, although it might cool things off a bit.

What's up Lobby?  Did someone forget to turn the lights on?  Did everybody leave me all alone? :(

Howdy y'all, Eh.June 26, 2019

Not going to drive to Dearborn now.

Just picked the car up from getting the new top and liner put on. Heading south on an 80k road towards home in a 80 Km zone, construction ahead, traffic stopped,  i slowed to 15kph. Guy behind me never hit the brakes. 1995 GMC pickup truck

Just got word today its been totaled.

Jasmine and I are okay, bruised up a bit, our glasses broken. that is the main thing. 

Tires and rims are not damaged, swapping them back for factory original tire and rims, getting the Carol Shelby autographed center air-duct back as well.

Thanks. Not a speck of rust under neath, I did rust proofing the first few years, never seen the winter.

  Guy said he was going about 10-15 kph, I figure he was on his phone.

Glad you both are OK.  I will bet the other Driver's Cell Phone may have played a part in the Crash.

That sucks.  Too bad those people can't be locked up and caned regularly for that kind of stupidity.  I'd get access to his phone records to see if he was texting, and then he should be caned some more.  An accident attorney would love that case.  Pain and suffering pay big bucks.

Nope, July is concert free.  And no pot for this metal head.  Gave that up in High School.
