I spent the day running errands in the T-Bird today, and it was like getting back together with an old friend.
An old friend that always seems to need money, that is.
I took the car to the self-serve car wash (still cleans up nice), a longish drive on nearby country roads, then a series of errands around town. I never had trouble starting it, no matter how long—or little—it sat, so I’m ready to declare the starting issue resolved (until proven otherwise).
It’s been some months since I drove the Thunderbird regularly, and I was a little shocked how poorly I remembered driving it.
How could I forget what a blast it is to drive? If I didn’t have one, I’d have to get one. Second: holy crap, this car needs some suspension work.
And, aren’t these carpets practically new?
It’s time to get busy.
