HOW I GOT TO PENNSYLVANIA
(or: A Testimonial for Acura Automobiles)
|1995 Acura Integra -
My 1995 Integra turned 200,000 miles on May 10, 2005.
<--- Here it is on the morning of May 11, at
about 200,005 miles.
|To celebrate this mileage milestone, I drove
the car 800 miles round trip to/from Pennsylvania on May 11 and back on May
Here it is in Jimmy's driveway in
Pennsylvania at arrival on May 11. -->
|This car starts every day, usually
on the second crank (I take about four). The car still brings me
hiking and camping, along twisty and
in Vermont to Mellotron Professor Jerry Korb's house, and even accidentally
on I95 through the Bronx (never again!). It has been
known to transport two Mellotrons. Yes,
there's some rust, the radio antenna is hurting, the heater-A/C temperature
lever sticks, and the front end is a
little loose, but I have far worse problems at not nearly the same mileage.
When it's time for a new car, I'll bring
Mellotron by the dealership to make sure it'll fit.
OK, let's get a look at the work we
did on the Medeskitron! -->
