Car will be launched


After spending an entire day at two different mechanics trying to get my car to pass inspection in the great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, I wouldn’t mind having the thing launched into a dirty river right about now.

It’s amazing how in this country you can go from one state that doesn’t give you any grief about driving a seven-year-old car with 170,000 miles on it to one that nickel and dimes you to the point of wanting to trade the car in and start all over. 

The best part is, our car still hasn’t passed and may never pass for all we know.
