Great Car Show - Thanks to all that helped!
From our SPOKES editor -
I may not have been at the January & February meetings But I am still here putting the Spokes together.
Now and again there are news stories with a subject matter for the car guy. Recently there was a story about a business out west I believe that delivers gas to you. You got to be kidding. Have we become that lazy that we can’t even stop for gas. This situation reminds me of the song from 1969 by Zager & Evans “ In The Year 2525”. Then there is the continuing story about air bags. It appears that there are more added in the recall. So tell me again why we need technology in cars? Oh ya it is so we can have recalls and keep mechanics working. Quality just went out the window (the side vent window).
So much for that, I do hope all winter repairs are progressing to the point of being almost complete or fully complete by now. The driving season will soon be upon us. One small request should any one get an extra quart or two of ambition could you send some my way. I seem to be low on mine. See everyone at the March meeting.
