Lukas Gojda/ Labor Day

For what I think is the third time this year, I find myself saying a holiday won’t be like the others. Pandemic life, sigh.

The last gasp of summer, at least socially speaking, is upon us. And once again, we need to be extra cautious because a dangerous virus is circulating. So be safe, wear your mask, and if you must gather, do it outdoors in small groups. That’s not me saying so — it’s the health experts.

With fall and flu season right around the corner, I, for one, would like to NOT see a spike in coronavirus cases the way we did after Memorial Day and the Fourth of July.

OK, doom, gloom, and lecturing aside, I wish you and yours a happy Labo(u)r Day. Get out for a drive, get some wrenching done, hit the track, give your car a wax. Whatever you choose to do, we will be back here for you on Tuesday at full bore. In the meantime, we’re going to log out early and take a well-deserved rest on Monday.

Big news to share next week, as well. You won’t want to miss it.

As usual, you’ll see some posts this afternoon and over the weekend, but for the most part, we’re trading the keyboard and mouse for grilled encased meats and adult beverages. See you Tuesday.

    I/we sure did ! .

    I cris crossed the central valley going down two lane farm roads so the boys & my Sweet could see what actual farming is like, it was bugger – all hot ! .

    Good thing the AC works well, I didn’t even have to turn it off going over the Grapevine . (I did have to take it in third gear @ 40MPH tho’) .

    460+ miles, I’m beat .

    I hope all here have a nice fun and _SAFE_ holiday ! .

    The CHP is out in force looking for drunks and speeders .

    Less than 60 days to President & CiC Donald Trump’s reelection. I wonder how it will affect the automotive market and economy in general?

    I owned a ’87 LXi hatch in this color. My wife had an ’86 Sedan in this color. Both cars were damn good cars and the hatch went over 325K miles last time I saw it.

    I’ve owned several nice cars over the years but I would be perfectly happy with a car or small SUV with similar equipment levels. Reasonably quiet, good a/c, decent power to weight ratio, durable, not too many nanny systems.
