I think it is one of the cool looks for our cars... a LSR or Mad Max kinda look... industrial.

Fun comment ME_Andy. Lemme just point out, the cheapest Volt I can find is $8,500 more than I have right now, and would be toward a depreciating asset: https://www.carfax.com/vehicles/1G1R...lt--wilmington

I happened to notice that 9/12 of the tanks immediately following cleaning the EGR passages were a couple of MPG lower than before. Did it take five thousand miles to reprogram, burn out the carbon, or something else?

Maybe Seafoam after cleaning the EGR would be in order.

Also, I just reported someone cloning the first 110 words of this in a new thread, and never posting again.

People on the Internet are weird!

And the outstanding award for necroing a dead thread goes to [drumroll] California98Civic!

Can a current picture wait until daylight?

I wanna thank you for that award. I so rarely win anything. I feel renewed. But now I am concerned: you have this car with traffic-stoping looks and you do not have 50 current beautyshots waiting on your IG!?

I went to take pictures first thing today once the sun was up, but I had been trying to win Publisher's Clearinghouse.

Five million winners and counting!

How come I haven't won anything yet?! Not a nickel! Not a coupon or gift card!

My battery was down to 5%, so I plugged it into a battery pack and hosed off Chorizo so that the paint looked better. There is no helping the spot where I tried to buff out cracked clear coat that turned out to be crazing. I had set down my phone charging in direct sunlight. It was in the seventies, but my phone was overheating, so I put it in the refrigerator. When I came back I couldn't find it. I asked my brother to no avail, so I did the "Where is my phone" feature.

My brother put it in my room. How was I supposed to find it there?!

The top right of the hood is damaged from where my brother forced it closed while it was propped open. The windshield is cracked from the bent corner of the hood stabbing the windshield. However, I can charge my brother for those once I have everything else fixed. There are small holes in the bumper from where I screwed rolled plastic to it.

There are some scratches and dents.

When I could not find a good black fender in a junkyard I ordered an aftermarket one, but I have not gotten around to priming and painting it, partially because I really do not like black paint in Arizona.

That back bumper really needs to be repainted.

Weight reduction, baby!

She's fabulous! But you'll need to get the takata driver airbag recall done at the dealer. Looks like you need a new head unit.

Your posts are performance art.

I have the stereo... somewhere...

I think the CD player doesn't work and the eject button ejected.

Shouty recommends upgrading to an android head. Would I finally be able to focus and remember stuff?

I have a letter from Honda about the airbag, but they say they don't have a fix. Who are they?! Volkswagen?!
