I....I just can't take it anymore.
Paid my diesel bill on Friday. Six Bens down the drain. I've got to quit driving my SMB on a daily basis. Change of plans and I'm not gonna not restore my one remaining VW convertible, then start driving it. Rather, going to take a long weekend and upgrade suspension, add front disc brakes, new tires, and start driving it as is. Sure, the car has an "Earth roof", but no time to do a body-off full resto and install new floors. Sure, the convertible top has more white duct tape on it than orig vinyl, but so be it. Frustratingly, I have everything to do the complete resto and do it right, but these fuel prices demand immediate action. Immediate I say! I'm gonna look like a burned out old hippy English Lit professor driving this Bug in this condition. Oh well. At least I don't have elbow pads on any of my sport coats or suits.
It takes a village to raise an idiot.
