35,700 Miles and Counting

Today on the way to work I rolled over 35,700 miles on the odometer on my car. I purchased it in September of 2000. Either years later, I have clocked in an average of about 4,500 miles a year. It’s not a “garage queen” either. If you saw the car a few weeks ago (with […]

That’s the sound I heard the other day when pulling out of the driveway to head to work. Not long after I heard something fall on the floor of my car by my feet, over by the clutch. My first thought was that the clutch spring had broken, so I pumped the clutch a few […]

Fuel Options

Corvette Sited in Berlin, Germany

Last week I was in Berlin, Germany for a conference. I had some extra time that I used to wander around downtown or visit various areas that I could get to by train. As I was walking through one downtown area I happened to see a black C6 Corvette driving by. Felt like a touch […]

Cleaning Your Car

I read an article recently on AOL’s service that contained car cleaning tips from the owner of McGuires cleaning products. It was a decent article. It contained some real tips and not just plugs for McGuire’s stuff. (For the record I don’t use them anyway, I use Zaino, or used to when I still had […]
