      Today I took out my Fox for a joy ride. It was a little warm today at 95 degrees F. But with a slow southern breeze it wasn't all that bad. I just ran my (little pampered queen - ask my wife calls her) Fox around town. I cruised by a couple of local car clubs "show and shine"s, there were some nice cars but I think I have seen them all already. I did get some looks from some of the attending folks. The Fox always gets attention. Its always fun! I'm just more about driving my Fox, I no longer use my Fox as a daily driver so I miss driving it. I'm always afraid of someone running into it. But you can't keep me out of the drivers seat in a Fox!

      Made myself a new throttle cable bushing or whatever you might call it. Old one disintegrated into nothing awhile back and I temporarily held it together with a zap strap. Feels nicer now than it ever did, going to take some getting used to.







      Small diameter OEM vacuum hose, large diameter OEM vacuum hose, and the rubber grommet that comes with oil pan gaskets trimmed down a little. Perfect fit.

      I drove the wagon to the store. It was hard to start, and when it did start, it ran poorly. Vacuum issue for sure. Sadly, the intake boot had a tear in it.
      (sheriff)Early, I though you said this was a drug possum.
      (Early) Sure, I drug him from the ditch.
      (sheriff) I wish you told me that before you sold him to me.

      finally drove my Fox again after sadly looking across the parking lot at it as i got in the passat for a year and a half. rear brakes need new cylinders but a couple pumps gets me brakes fine. rolling resistance seems quite high so i barely need brakes, not sure what that's about. Gunna have to spend more time with it. needs a throttle body cleaning i think. So great to take it for a spin!!!

      We will have to have a throttle cable bushing test day.... I'm running the MissingLinkZ one.

      Well that one will obviously be better, but mine was free.

      Picked up some wagon rear drums for my coupe. Thanks Geoff!

      Also some quality reading material appeared in the mail.
