You know you're old when you get your first dose of vaccine on February 6 and then schedule your second for 3 weeks later on February 27, but by your mistake you choose March instead of February. You go down on February 27 excited about getting your second dose and they politely say, "you need to come back in another month". I am officially and idiot.

Good news: They took care of me anyway.

This cracks me up! Reminds me of my dear Auntie (G-d bless her soul) who put about 52 miles on her car in a year...going 1 mile to the hairdresser and back home every week.

I did a 10-year oil change on my Audi in 2017 (only 3,400 miles in 10 years on the autox trailer queen), and sent a sample of the ancient Mobil-1 0W/40 Euro Car Formula out to Blackstone Labs for testing. Here is their narrative:

Quote:
"This engine still looks great. Wear metals compared nicely with universal averages, which show typical wear levels for this type of engine after about 5,800 miles on the oil. Considering the hard life this engine has led, we're pretty impressed with these readings. The additives are standard for Mobil 1 0W/40 and air and oil filtration are working well. The viscosity is a tad thin, perhaps due in part to the fuel, but neither the fuel nor the thin viscosity is harmful. The TBN is 5.9, showing active additive left. Run the next oil 5,000 miles and check back."
Realize that if I run the new 2017 replacement Mobil-1 0W/40 their suggested 5,000 miles, the car will qualify for historic license plates before its next oil change!

Am I the only person who has trouble every year with annual state vehicle inspections getting rejected for odometer tampering because some of my cars don't clock 25 miles in a year? The inspection station has to call the DMV mothership and ask them to override the flag, telling them each time that the car came in on a trailer and did not appear to be driven much.....

A friend of mine worked in the garage at a Chrysler dealership many years ago. One day there was a big company wide meeting to raffle off the chance to buy a car that came in on trade. If you were interested you put your name in the hat for the draw. The car in question was a ten year old 1969 Dodge Dart Swinger 4MT. The elderly lady that traded it in was quite disappointed with the gas mileage and wanted something more fuel efficient. She voiced her complaint as such, "This car is just too hard on gas. I have to fill it up every January." The car was ten years old and had only burned 10 tanks of gas. Needless to say there were a lot of names in the hat.

Pumping gas at 16 was one of my first jobs. On day 1 the station owner said "when the lady shows up in the Chrysler Imperial you come get me...don't touch her car." He had that dad-stare...

Next week she pulls up "fill 'Er up Sonny". I say "yes ma'am" and run for Steve. He comes out and washes her windows, checks her oil, just opens the radiator cap and looks in (no explosion), then pumps about ten cents of gas and...click, full. She hands him a quarter and waits for change, then gives him a nickel tip. He respectfully accepts, nods, shuts the hood and wipes where he touched, and she drives off as he waves.

"She's been coming here for fill-up once a week when she goes five blocks for groceries...for the last 20 years. (That's why the radiator was cold.) If I'm ever sick that's how she's treated".

It was nice to see the old way...the right way...

Just received an email that one of my favorite racing buddies for the past 20+ years succumbed to COVID a few days ago. Needless to say, I'm feeling even older this morning.....
