Thought I avoided the sickness that Carli brought home from the office then gave the kids.  They’re all better, and it claimed me yesterday.  What better than they day before i go pick up the most important part I’ve ever picked up?

 

plan:  hot shower, throw cargo carrier on truck hitch with a couple c4 wheels for Angrycorvair.  

Drop those off near 275 between Detroit and Ann Arbor. pick up wiring harness and money.

Immediately head to grand rapids to akylekoz house for the hood for my Devin Panhard 

South to Climax for a quick hello and pick up i think a carburetor from John Brown

east to Dexter to get Stampie’s wheels from deadskunk

southeast home.

i have dayquil and coffee.

The front of that car is such an important impossible piece. So awesome.

Bypassed quasi noshow in climax in favor of hitting 96 east with the cruise set around 90 because I don’t feel very good, having a sandwich at jersey giant subs in howell by the outlet mall.

Currently sitting at 17.4mpg, and most of the trip has been 80+.  Theres no way something that weighs 4 tons, has 800 ft lbs of torque and the aerodynamics of a house should get that at the speeds I’ve been doing

The lights change on the 280 bridge, the first winter it was built the ice was falling off those cables and puncturing cars. They got that fixed right quick!

I smiled and waved, she was having none of that.  I thought to yell over “nice babushka” but she looked like she could kick my ass

This is what I ended up with.  Also 4 rims in bed as well as 2000 corvette harness/pcm/fuse block.  I really wish there was a speed camera on the way home so I could have blown by it with tires blocking my plate

Oh, *that* little old lady.  Yeah, she’s not from here, she’s just visiting from Babushkistan.
