The Bimmer has been giving me a few issues of late but they’re slowly getting fixed, along with a few odds and ends that have been on the car’s To Do List since I got it. I parked at KSVR on Friday and after cutting the ignition, pulling the key and stepping out of the car, it chugged on for a nearly ten additional seconds. I see a spendy carburetor rebuild in my near future.
The good news is that once that’s tackled, it should be a smooth running (albeit ugly) classic. I popped the hood, poured in a quart of oil (next week’s engine wash should help determine the where and why of the light leak), and took the shot you see above.
Andi and I are now in the market for a truck. Actually, we’ve decided on what my college buddy Ryan calls “…an automotive mullet. Business in front, party in back, and no one is really sure why it exists.” Yep, we’re in the market for an Chevy El Camino or Ford Ranchero.
Here’s the playlist from June 15. I threw in a few older tunes for fun and to round things out. Surprisingly, I’ve already begun the next playlist, which is somewhat unlike me (usually waiting until the last minute and all).
Oh yeah, and if you’re on Instagram, feel free to follow me. “fense” is the user name.
