    So freaking cold that the drivers door on the wagon froze shut. Had to use a panel popper to free up the door seals

    No heat gun? Also, helps to lube those seals.
    It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

    The sWagon came with 4 junk tires on it and it started snowing the other day. So last night i went and pulled 2 of the new tires off of my SL1 (Sally) and put them on the front accidentally turning the sWagon into a drift missile...

    I'll get the other 2 tires here soon.

    Was on my way to my first date in 10 years, and the car suddenly dropped 2 cylinders. I limped it downtown and ditched in a garage. Afterward I limped it halfway home then it suddenly jumped back to running fine. Fuck. Now I get to diagnose ignition problems that are not currently present.

    Code was misfire and cam sensor, which is basically what is thrown with every ignition issue, so not much help.

    Snow is still falling here. Forecast has moved to up to 18". What are the chances I can reinstall stock springs without a spring compressor? 2" of extra ground clearance would be quite handy.

    I guess snow tires aren't super popular down there. I was checking out google maps looks like traffic is an absolute mess down there right now and for a Sunday that's crazy.

    I told the guys we should hit up the dragon in the snow

    No, snow tires are definitely not a thing down here. I have them on 2 cars and so does my buddy, but none of our cars are mobile because they won't push through 12" of snow

    I'm not brave enough to try and make it out to a main road. If a road has been plowed even once, I might be ok.

    I vacuumed the shit out of my car today, and I gotta say, it's disgusting how I let my cars get before I realize I gotta clean it.

    My buddy who bought my 95 SC2 had his car stolen today, I'm hoping to find it because I told him I'm gonna keep it if I find it

    Did some rattle hunting under the dash, got it to quiet up a little...
    Also did an Italian tune up on the freeway. Has 160k and still handles high RPM's without sending a rod through the block.

    Drove my car to the orthopedic doctor today to see about my recently broken thumb, found out it’s not as bad as the ER doctor said, he removed my temporary cast and gave me a really nice brace/splint to wear for a while...

    On the way home I was able to hypermile again (with mostly restored use of my left hand) and averaged an indicated ~55mpg over the 26mi trip... not too shabby given the weather
    2004 ION-2 sedan, L61/F23(M86), 159k and counting...
    Too many mods to list in sig, I don’t believe in “stock”...

    I found that the plastic dash on the 1995's do not have the trim piece where it meets the dash, so I put one on and also found that the three metal clips that hold the front end of the dash down were rubbing and squeaking, so I stuck rubber around it from old weather strips. It quieted it up but there is more rattling lower in the dash and my mirror is also contributing to it. I have some work ahead of me to quiet it up but I know it will never stop rattling because that's just the way these turds are.
