Why yes I name my cars. 20 years ago today I bought this car:
After all of the miles and all of the things, it still has had only TWO Recalls for stupid stuff. I have to admit though that running up to Lagniappe's Lair for a Blog shoot was the swan song for this girl on the open road. She still serves as my daily driver though.
When you get to this point after 3 clutches, 2 radiators, A/C compressor, left side window motor, 4 audio head units, blower motor, and a distributor (that was weird I suspected the EEC-IV module instead of the bearings on that), and being totaled, well, I don't like walking in the middle of banjo country if the need arises.
I bought her a birthday gift as the MOMO shifter had finally disintegrated that was installed the week after purchase.
It is a Ford Motorsport shifter and promises another 5 horsepower =)
I also think I have one of the last printed shop manuals from FoMoCo for this ride. I'm not getting rid of this faithful friend, just waiting on the aftermarket people to start making interior trim for it!
Oh, and there is this:
This is a wireless adapter for the new camera that allows you to see what it sees and run it from your smartphone. More later!
