Took my wife through the Drive-up COVID-19 test line. Same nurse who did mine ten days ago did my wife, and didn't recognize me or the car. I need to get on my publicist. Or get a publicist. My test was Not Found, for viruses. Hers is pending. (Result: No trace of virus)

Mileage is 1,247. Minus 152 at delivery, means I've driven the car 1,095 miles since March 26, all but about 150 for "necessity", as opposed to "recreation". At 30 days per month, that's 7.3 miles a day. Call it a $27,000 car, plus insurance at $80 a month, that's $25.02 a mile. $182.65 a day.

Selling the car would leave enough money to buy a decent golf cart to scoot around in, and a usable Mazda MX-5 for entertainment value. Tough choices.

Can't wait to hear some recordings!

Most OE AGM applications will have the battery way out of the way of any heat source.
That was true for Optimas. Not the case anymore. My ex-2018 F-150 Platinum had an H6 AGM from the factory, and it sits next to the engine. As far as Ford (and others) not installing AGMs on every vehicle from the factory? Simple: $$$ :D. I dumped the factory wet cell battery on the Bulllitt during the first week of ownership. It was toast after 9 months of sitting around anyway, but much rather pay for an AGM myself than getting another crappy one for free (under warranty).

I don't have a lot of recording expertise, so I was pretty much impressed with the sound from this lash-up: Some street driving of a stock 2009 GT/CS, recorded via Panasonic Lumix LX1 pocket camera in movie mode, 16:9 screen ratio. Camera is tethered to the car and mounted on a suction-cup GPS bracket just above the bumper, as close to the faux gas cap as possible, maybe eight inches closer to the right exhaust than to the left. After the U-turn (second half of the video, about 2:20 in), acceleration is wide-open throttle, shifts at ~6,000 RPM



Other effort, but I don't recall which little camera was stuck to the back of the 2006 V6 Mustang, on the way home from a 14-run session at the Friday night Race Legal eighth-mile drags at Qualcomm Stadium. Once again, I was impressed by the sound picked up by a tiny camera microphone.

I went thru a similar experience, the tow truck actually broke down on the way to my location. About a 6hr affair, picked up AAA roadside (free map included HaHa) / and the AA spare with a impact set-up to avoid going thru that again.
That doesn't sound fun!
I'll probably look into a spare tire too.

Now i'm having trouble getting the tire patched. Nobody wants to touch it. They claim the tire is too worn. It's a Cup 2 that barely has any thread depth when new. Only 2500 miles on it. It looks like I'm going to have to dismount it at one place, patch it myself and have it remounted elsewhere :facepalm:

Nothing.

Instead did a 2.5 hour round trip (plus lots of car talk) to pickup a 5000 lbs Quickjack from an 80yr old dude working on a BEAUTIFUL 1970 ElCamino. 454 550/580HP/TQ, $10K paint job in steel grey, built auto, etc etc. He had owned many 60's Chevelle's all with more HP than cubes, old HP ratings of course. I hope I'll be spry enough in 20 yrs to still "Play with cars"!! QJ Thing was brand new $1050. Felt that was a good deal.

Needed paint protection from brake dust and rocks flying off the factory Corsa tires, so took a chance on Rvinyl pre-cut rocker panel 3M kit. Not too hard to install, need patience aligning it. I felt it was missing one critical area behind the front tire but there was enough leftover material in the kit to cover it. Good quality and fit, will do the front bumper kit next. Also added GT350 style rear bumper winglets.

The vinyl was $190, winglets $50. The kit covers rocker panel, lower door, and front of quarter panel, missing piece was behind front fender, but enough material to make two additional pieces.

Had Steeda suspension installed. Springs, shocks, struts, camber plates, etc. and stop the hop kit. Also put on the Cervini hood and side scoops (youtubes gold pony's stangosaurus has a brother now lol).
I had the factory stripe put on the hood, but will be removing it and having it redone with better materiel and a non offset stripe look. New wheels are coming today.
