Warming Things Up

Holy crap that was frigid.

I finally got the Cobalt's tires pumped up.

The Longacre Pro Precision Tire Gauge showed they were off anywhere between 3 and 5 psi.

No wonder she was having directional stability issues.

You know, I've needed to adjust those tires for four months, now.

That's okay, I haven't driven much since I got home from Arizona: I haven't been able to afford it — still paying off the road trip. I haven't even gotten gas in 2020 yet.

In case you were wondering, the Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator is still going strong.

The Cobalt SS/SC needs a bunch of work, though. Surprise, surprise, it went on a road trip and came back needing work on the brakes and potentially the suspension — the strut mounts may need some attention this time around. It may just be the low tire pressure in the Pirellis, though. We'll see.

On the positive side, things are heating up behind the scenes here at Classics and Performance: you may have noticed from the last three months that I've got a more robust content schedule planned for this year, so be on the lookout for that getting into full swing next month — don't want to give too much away...in case it should all fall apart. Plans regularly fall apart in my life — that's why it pays for me to be stubborn and unwavering. If I wasn't, I wouldn't get anywhere.

Well, that's all for this week.

Now, I'm going to go turn the heat on and warm up my cold parts.
