Bummer. Sounds like HPFP. I'm sure most dealers are well aware of this fix and can diagnose and repair in no time at all.

Thanks for the offer, Mike!

Brian, when's the car ready? I gotta think that HPFP repairs are done in no-time, these days.

I'm probably gonna come out and hang out with you guys for the afternoon. In the evening I'm heading up to Nashua to see District 9 and The Hangover at the Milford Drive-In if anyone is interested.

Hi Amy, I don't have a definitive answer, but I'll try to allow you in cars. There may be protests, and if so, I have to abide by that club's rules. Best I can do.


By the way, the largest Oktoberfest in New England is this weekend at the Boylston Schul-Verein in Walpole. Might head there on Sunday. Righteous wurst, kraut, and potato pancakes, as well as lots of real German wines and beers am Fass (on tap). Oompah bands, dancing, archery, etc... The real deal.

It wouldn't be the first time. I just ride along though (if they let me), I don't drive. Although now I suppose I have to at least drive around a little bit so everyone can look at my wobble.

We'll see how tomorrow goes and whether I can muster the strength to go back into the kitchen. Maybe I'll have a trunk bake sale.

No, the rain just evens the field in favor of the underpowered cars. I'm hoping for a repeat of the last rainy course that we ran. The course was set up really open with the expectation of rain, then it was dry all day. The course was really fast and really fun. If it does rain and you want to go for a spin, take a ride with me. With some luck we can get two full rotations.

They looked to be having a good time, despite the rain. I took a few ride-alongs and hung out for lunch with them before I threw in the towel and retreated to my heated seats and drove home. Hopefully there will be no rain next weekend.

Oh, and despite the tire fix, I didn't feel a difference on the ride home.
