      Sharp car. And it's great to have supportive family. My wife quickly "got" Foxes and insists we keep the wagon.

      One more random thought (though still OT): What happened to the "chemtrail program" around 9/11/2001? I remember those days very clearly. Because they were clear, among other reasons. No...

      Well, I'm surprised to see this pop back up. And I just wasted more time reading it... I had a "discussion" with a Facebook friend recently about this, and despite myself and a friend of hers who...

      Took it for a spin in this warmer weather for groceries and bulky items. Spun up the turbo a few times because you have to... Drove past the 2-door's last resting place and got bummed.

      Hm. When mine went out years ago it was the heater resistor, a ceramic tube under the rain tray. Pulled one from a junkyard and it cured it.

      Huh, I didn't know there were different horn relays. Anyway, you can run it- it just doesn't have the circuit that kills the pump in a crash, so be careful out there... I ran one for a few weeks...

      I mean aircraft rotaries (the one in the car mentioned above is also that type), but that link is cool. I'd call that a variant of the Wankel type.

      The aircraft rotary looks like a radial engine,...

      They're bizarre engines. There's a cutaway one at the Air Force museum that rotates; that much mass spinning had a serious...

      I used to listen all the time, and still try to when I can. NPR on XM replays old ones. They were helpful and funny, and he'll be missed.

      Inline refers to the arrangement of the cylinders, not the orientation in the car. I've never heard it used for orientation, and that would confuse me (and be technically incorrect, but then, people...

      I think it's a lot of money for a short trip too.

      But you're wrong about the space benefits. I guess you're thinking in terms of travel to other worlds? But we've seen some minor benefits, and...

      Yeah, Memphis is pretty bad. Talk her into some barbecue! Outside of that, maybe swing by Sun Records, and the Civil Rights Museum (although frankly, that wasn't as good as I had hoped.)

      I put in Quantum seats. Went in with minimal blood loss. They don't flip forward, though, so the back seat is pretty useless. I just use the car as a big hatchback anyway so it doesn't bother me.

      Love the glovebox fix. I had to do something similar to my old one.

      Yesterday: swapped the 2-door's Scirocco brakes onto the wagon. Pulling what I can off it... Sadly, it will go to the yard...
