    social networking and responsibility are at the forefront of how they want to be portrayed but I can t help to ask myself how much of this is disingenuous Do these companies really want to make a difference or do they just want to be seen as making a difference Or does the distinction even matter This comment is mostly me just thinking out loud but it was prompted by your post Thanks for the inspiration and food for thought Brian http twitter com MindAdventure rob white Overthrow yourself I like that a lot When we notice what s wrong with our current opinions about ourself and take responsibility for them It gives us inner strength to make changes The way to making right changes always begins with awareness of wrongness Without awareness it s impossible to make corrections and overthrow that part of us that is simply not working http dr1665 com Brian Driggs That sentence is never far from my mind Chris I like to think about how ridiculous the publicity would be if just one large corporation made its full resources available to produce something truly meaningful for the world Imagine if instead of reducing costs and maximizing profits with more run of the mill mediocrity they brought products to market which were designed and built to last a lifetime Does anyone make something you can pass on to future generations beyond debt and environmental harm If so they are few and far between in my opinion It seems making a difference is more akin to innovation in these outfits it s just something they all talk about doing but precious few follow their words with meaningful action Thanks for stopping by Chris I really appreciate it http dr1665 com Brian Driggs Wish I could take credit

    car status Financially I don t think it s going to be possible to complete the rally car before the end of the year but that s why I ve taken to calling 195 my RMV More details on the RMV project will be coming soon but I ll give you a hint What looks like a rally car and drives like a rally car but isn t technically legal for rally competition Such is the RMV idea 464 1000 I m pretty sure I haven t even owned this Galant two months yet but in addition to some maintenance items and a tune up in January plans for this car aren t as drastic Before it starts getting hot again in Arizona sometime in mid April I m going to want to address the lack of air conditioning in the car I spent the hottest months of 2008 driving a Swedish toaster over to and from work with neither a radio nor air conditioning and it s not something I want to repeat Especially not with black leather seats Fortunately I ve got all the AC components I ll need between the two cars the accident damaged the AC system in 195 so it s coming out It will be interesting installing everything into 464 charging the system and being able to feel cold air coming out of the vents in one of my cars for once plus I ve never done AC work before Other projects on the horizon for 464 include replacing the janky moonroof that stopped working the day after I got it home getting the cruise control working again replacing tired old speakers and tinting the windows I ll snag the working moonroof out of 195 since rally cars can t have them This two

  • [464] First Carwash | DR1665
    warrant a good hand washing Sweating like a pig as I scrubbed every inch of the exterior down I thought back to when I owned Daisy and how I used to spend a solid six hours or so on each detail session I miss that special ritual of car ownership but 464 has a less than fabulous respray which is an orange peel rush job that doesn t exactly match the original color so it s hard to get inspired to really invest the time that goes into polishing your typical automotive jewel Regardless 464 looks a lot better now that all the dust grime and general filth has been cleaned away Since stripping the wax doing a clay bar treatment and polish before re waxing wouldn t have returned the best results I turned my focus to the interior Easing back into the dedicated car owner mindset I opened up a package of Turtle Wax ICE plastic vinyl and leather cleaner that I got from a buddy a few weeks back on that cruise to Prescott and began wiping down all the leather surfaces This ended up taking twice as long as it did to just wash and dry the exterior but it payed off As the taught splitting seats in 195 can attest the Arizona sun can be brutal on leather seats so it felt good to get more familiar with the finer areas of my new Galant There are some areas on the seats which have already begun to get tight and aren t as supple as their neighbors and those are likely beyond saving I ve heard that once leather gets dry and hard you can t soften it back up again but by taking care of the leather in general I hope to keep the
