He finishes off each bottle.

Corona was summer leftovers. We had to hit it since we seem to keep running out of other beer for some odd reason.

On the coast, prevailing wind direction is very easy to predict. It'* consistently from the W or NW in the winter. This shed is completely sheltered from that by the fence.

Besides, it'* just for the mower, yard chemicals, and slicks.

Cherokee now has new tires, fresh oil and filter, and new rear end oil. We just finished doing the touch-up paint on the rear diff cover. It had a couple small scratches.



AHHHHH! My eyes! The burn!

Intercooler is on the way. Labor by ZillaMotorsports. And this one is surprisingly quick considering fouled plugs.

No, I just drove it, and scheduled the work to be done. It'* owned by the guy that used to own Class A Audio in Albany, and now owns Audiofiles in Corvallis.

He'* a good friend of mine.
