I always approach the Flivver with a little trepidation at the end of winter. _Anything can happen over the cold months; the gasoline could go stale or gum up the guts of the carburetor, some electrical gremlin could take up residence—you just never know. _At the end of the driving season, the coolant was drained off because there was no way to figure out how much was anti-freeze and how much was water that had been added, and I sure didn't need a freeze-up. _Except for the dregs at the bottom of the clear containers, the neon-green coolant went back in today, and when I stepped on the button, the engine started right up, though it ran rough for about a minute before smoothing out. _Timer needs to be cleaned, I guess. _So we put on about nine miles with the engine purring nicely. _Brakes felt really good, so no adjustment this year. _Okay, so time, now, to change the oil, grease the cups, make sure the tires are inflated to spec and buy some peel-and-stick mustaches. _ Daylight Savings Time begins this weekend in my neck of the woods and what a nice, symbolic way to kiss winter good-bye.
Winter, what's that? Put away, not if I can help it!
Glad your back to driving your car.
I hate Daylight savings time. Last year I stayed up til 1:00 to set the clock ahead. By the time I got it done it was after 2:00.
ROFL--Rich, that was 'Rich'!
Thats your problem right there Rich. Time setting is supposed to be at 2 not 1.
I just someone with a modicum of intelligence would sign an executive order to set the clocks at whatever time they wanted and then leave the D!**& things alone! (The cows know what time it really is)
What chaps my hide about daylight savings time is the politics of it. IMHO, while at one time it may have been useful, in modern times it's the result of a totally fabricated "problem" from which we are saved by our faithful public "servants". What a load. There's no data whatsoever to support daylight savings proponents claims.
If I were king for a day I'd suspend daylight savings for a year then compare actual data and see what's what.
