      Drove to a favorite Vietnamese restaurant which gets the car some good highway time. While there I ran into a large celebration of the fall of Saigon.

      I had a new valve body installed on my Passat yesterday. The car shifts so smoothly now, I can't believe I waited this long to have it changed.

      Today i confirmed that my sentra no longer has a small headgasket leak. Now, it's BLOWN and i need a new daily ASAP. My first nissan experience turned to be quite unsatisfactory in terms of reliability. There's a beige camry on CL that looks appealing .

      Installing the engine dampener seems to have taken care of a noise that I was having. Nice

      brought the wife's 99 civic to get an inspection sticker: failed for upper ball joint and an exhaust leak. I replaced the balljoint/control arm the exhaust will have to wait.

      Looks like i spoke too soon yesterday. I gave the system a good burping today and it wasn't heating up. Looks like i can squeeze a few more miles out of it just yet! HG is worsening though. C'est la vie. But for now, beige camry will have to wait!

      I had a good car day, spent most of the morning in my garage doing the following:
      - changed the oil in the Camaro and Scirocco
      - soldered new h4 connectors on the Camaro for the h4 conversion I did this winter
      - checked the Camaro over before it goes in for it's annual inspection this week
      - washed the Camaro and detailed the engine bay


      The rest of the afternoon I smoked two racks of ribs and watched the Richmond race I had pvr'd and to my delight Kyle won.

      Great day overall, depending on the wife's mood, it may be a good evening too

      Removed the winter wheels/tires and put the all-seasons back on. Discovered both sets have one good season left on the, before they hit the first set of warning bars.

      Took it to the pay/spray and washed it, turned out great.

      Car related... my dad came over and we installed my garage door opener!

      Nothing. It's been sitting in the garage since yesterday...


      ...but yesterday I finally replaced that rusted fender with a shiny new one. Just in time for me to notice a tiny rust bubble on the passenger door.
