Not a whole lot to report. I have a knock sensor re-wire kit and a COP harness from Yota Connectors ready to go on. I also have a new leather shift and e-brake boot. A few other odds and ends.
Truth be told, I've not touched the car in a while for a few reasons. My wife and I normally work in regional theater all across the country, so needless to say we've been unemployed since March. And will be for some time to come. So I'm a little hesitant to start working on a project with it, only to discover it needs a lot more money than I originally thought. Which... often happens. I've also been devoting a lot of energy to a new VO business so I've directed additional funds to new equipment to record with. HOWEVER. I did take the car out for a drive last week and it was just lovely.
It's incredible how a car that's too heavy, has no A/C, and isn't terribly fast can still be so satisfying to drive. Of course, the 15 years of ownership has a profound effect any time I get behind the wheel.
I love this car. I love what it represents for me. Failures and successes. Comfort and excitement. Frustration and satisfaction.
I was recently watching Ford vs Ferrari again and this quote hit me like a ton of bricks. “But then, all of a sudden, I started thinking that sometimes words are not very... useful.
Tools are useful. You can make things with ‘em...
Fix things with ‘em.”
Take care gents. Take some time to appreciate your car today!
