Davis bound in the morning. Third time. Love this event. I usually spend hours looking the car over. No time this year. Wish us luck.

1300 miles, 27 mpg, nil oil consumption, driving lights were great on the highway. The only issue was that the BOV vacuum / pressure line from the intake came off as I used the wrong type hose. I'm digging the new LED tail / brake light bulbs (brighter / faster). Need to put some LED bulbs in the small gauges as they are hard to see at night. Sound deadening and stereo were nice. B21FT pulled the grades just fine. Very pleased.

The new shifter comes with aluminum bushings that go between the shifter mount and the transmission case. Kind of cool.

Strip Club is for sale in the UK. Kind of sad. This car started this ludicrous slippery slope for me. Damn you Bryn.

Davis ‘19 / Turbo power.

Nah, mostly just 30 somethings living in their parents basement.

Ran up to the Old School Reunion south of Seattle today. First time. Older Euro and Asian scene. Well run. Parked in a large soccer field complex. Beautiful day. The DL ran great. A/C would be nice in the afternoon, but the wife is a trooper. So cool to pull the hills in high gear with the turbo engine. Must fix the oil leak. Stereo is great.

Leavenworth Drive this weekend. Probably my favorite show. Taking my son’s Mini. Volvo’s in the Hood coming up.

Pretty good traffic through the house, but no offers.

Hopefully pull the motor, fix the leak and some other stuff this summer. Got to sell the house first. It takes a lot of time to keep it sale ready.

Hard to believe that last year at this time she was still N/A.

I did the Dyna-Mat on the floors and doors. Put the foam thing in the shifter tunnel and insulation under the hood. Any other tips for a quiet 240?
