When he's waxing the inside of the ashtray I'll start getting worried.
I'm sure he's done that.

Oh hahahah HAHA everybody, no, I haven't waxed the inside of the ashtray. I have 400 grit sanded the inside of the ashtray, I have washed the inside of the ashtray. I have dried and painted the inside of the ashtray with high temp clearcoat. I have lubricated the little wheels on the sides of the earlier VW ashtrays so they glide noiselessly. I have painted the gearshift pattern back on the ashtray. So hahahaHAHA, WAX THIS!

CK - I'm really happy you're back on the road, in the saddle and in fine form once again. You're livin' & drivin' the dream of a lotta folks. Your brand of freedom is an enviable commodity and the tales and photos you send back from the road are a thing of beauty. Thank you for making it happen!! =D> =D> =D>

No kidding. I was one street west of I-25 in a parking lot of the local Dollar Store, touching up some L90D Pastelwhite when I heard a horn/screech/kabOOFclinkaclinka then the most amazing streak of screaming from a Chrysler 300 coming down the street with the back bumper hanging off. No words just primal screams. The Chevy Suburban had stopped against a pole. The Chrysler, driven by a young woman of 19 or so (AGAIN) had pulled out in front of the Chevy blabbityblab-blabbing on her phone. A passing matronly sort of woman blocked her at the Dollar Store so she could answer to her obligation to the Chevy dude who was certainly more calm than the girl, "my boyfriend is GOING TO KILL ME!!!!" There is restless energy here in Albuquerque . . .
