Did you ever have a chat with Len Hoffman about your incorrect-valve-size theory?
Yes.

A) wrong size valves is bone-headed.

B) valves shrouded in seat caused blow torch velocities

C) he will not reseat my heads phooey

D) I will see to it that I break all longevity records with these used heads, like I did with the Road Warrior. I will just keep repeating that to myself . . .

Slowy Chloe.

I'm devastated. But hey, your call. Chlo seems so more refined, uptown.

However I can appreciate Chloe when her full name is used. Slowy Chloe.

Musical verbal play.

I name in alliterations. There's a hint of a similar musicality there.


I echo Glasseye, Welcome to the world Chloe, show Colin whatcha got.

I found this today and though of that Blue Bus Wonder.

Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue, I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace. Where never lark, or even eagle flew. And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod, The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

I don't usually name cars either...seems so....Roy Rogers. I inherited the name Olga. I think the college kid I bought it from thought that was German. It should have been Helga. I just call it The Bus. I only have one bus. No need for anything more to differentiate. I like Chloe though.

Same here. I guess we lack creativity. The Beetle is called Her Car.
