I can relate, Smurf.  Yesterday I made it 10-12 miles at 20mph before I turned around and came back.  Icy ruts pulling the car all over, and twice pulled me onto the center line with semi's coming the other way.  Scary...

Sampson monitors are supposed to be here UPS tomorrow sometime.  I have to go do a network job at a school, so I won't get to try them out till Wednesday.  But I have some mixing to do, so I'll let y'all know how they work...

I know, right?  I used to climb right in there.  Not anymore.

Two years ago I had to pull the exhaust manifold and some other things just to get to the back 3 plugs on one of the cars just to do a tuneup.

I've got a pile of tools and testers that weren't even thought of 50 years ago.  Aside from basic drive train axle stuff, you have to start with an OBD tester just to know what might be going on.

I've always said I'd love to have a 1965 'anything' in good shape to fix up and drive...

Things have definitely changed a lot from back in the day of simple carburetors and distributors with points, Buster.  I could fix most things on the road with a few tools.  Not any more...

You guys are doing well. The 1st car I owned I took out the engine and gearbox, removed all the parts, had the engine o'hauled, put it all back in, re-timed it and drove it away. The new truck, I can't name a single thing under the hood.

And yeah, garage and pole barn, both full of motorcycles and dirt bikes, mowers, and a ton of other crap.  Been promising myself to clean them out for a long time and give myself a work area...

Same here, Red.  Back in the 70's before I got into computers I was a licensed mechanic, and I still refuse to pay somebody else to do what I can do.  Most of the time...

I'm with you Joom. I do all our car maintenance, have a 3 car garage and can't park a single car in it.  :/

Only -2 here today, not too cold.  But just finished 3 hours laying on ice doing a front end alignment on one of the cars.  That got cold.  Really need to clean out the garage...

Oh, don't say that, G.  I've been blaming bad monitors for bad sounding tunes...  ::)

Hi everyone, and Welcome Adrien! 

I just got back - had to go out for doughnuts. 

I'm glad to know there are no crazies here, and with the paperwork to prove it. 

I was asked where I'm from - "What makes you think I'm "from" anywhere?"  That was my usual line after I moved to Florida.  I grew up in Alabama and it seems people here thought I had an accent.  Almost as soon as I said anything they would ask where I was from, thus the above reply.  However, I am certain that I did not have an accent.  Everyone else did, though. 

Anyhow, like I said I'm trying to learn guitar, but I'm not very good yet.  I haven't had a lesson since the first week of May.  My teacher moved and is currently pursuing some other interests.  I really miss the lessons, but just last month I signed up for some online lessons and quickly learned that I have a lot to learn.  I knew that, but even the guitar 101 lessons are teaching me quite a bit so there could be hope for my guitar playing future.  We'll see. 

I'll be in and out, but looking forward to spending time here, maybe even gleaning more guitar and music theory knowledge, and certainly getting some inspiration.

Not sure how you type with an accent, but there you go  :P :P
