I need to send this to wirecutter


I notice he's been doing a bit of mechanicing recently.
The only thing he's worse at than not getting lost driving in a straight line
is working on vehicles.

Hell, I can wander for hours in the woods with no map or gps, without getting lost, but in my damn doctors office, I follow the nurse back and forth through hallways and have to ask which way to go to get the hell back out.

Dammit, I can't post a pic in the comments. Looks like an MG Magnette Mk3....I fix cars like that....

I get in cars and pickups and drive them. I make sure they get routine maintenance. Although I can do some rudimentary repairs, I do not as a rule work on them. I hate working on machinery. I detest grease on my hands. I love cowshit on my boots. Different strokes.....

Don't worry wirecutter, you have other talents.

When the dogs see me getting my tools out, they head for the house out of wrench range.

You deal with Lucas Electrics and SU carburetors??

Talk about a glutton for punishment.

And nobody but the fucking Brits would build a car with a battery as big as the engine... or need to.

After 40 years it is easy as pie...I love fixing the electrical stuff.Actually Lucas stuff is decent quality, and I hunt down genuine old stock parts to use. The new stuff made in India is not so good...

SUs are not so bad either. Easy enough to fix and tune, but I think Quadrajets are easy too...

Ah, yes. Lighting by Lucas, Prince of Darkness. Gotta love the vintage British sportscars.

It's Lucas Aerospace now. That should keep you awake at night.
