There I was chasing around town for an open car wash in the rain.
Our usual was sensibly closed. Another down on Rosecrans Street opened when the rain let up, and I confess that I didn’t have my camera with me. They let you ride through the car wash in your car. I was like a five year old kid. Yes, they tried to get him clean, but they didn’t do a really good job. When home, I took the Geezer’s trusty fuchsia colored wax to all Grumpy’s hard used surfaces and buffed them up a bit.
Yes, it’s true. If your vehicle looks good, you get better service. Today is the day Grumpy goes in for an oil change and diagnostics on the horrible grinding sound he makes as he starts up from a stop. We are both hoping that it’s the pilot shaft bushing that we feel MKB didn’t change out when they replaced the clutch last. The alternative isn’t good.
So I buffed and rubbed. I wiped him all down and polished his tires then I carefully backed him into the garage. The rain started just as I pulled to a stop.
