"Every photo I see of a 453 make me cringe.  The design is such a pity. Since there are four other members with precisely the same user name, plus two more who don't capitalize their name, who knows who said this?"

Duplicate Handles on the insider

Mine is not as common a name as Steven or Mark.  So, back when I registered here, I decided to give my actual first name a go for my handle.  I was pleasantly surprised when Victor was accepted.  Ah, nobody else has claimed that handle!  Or so I thought at the time. However, there appear to be seven people who have picked the exact same handle.  Five of them capitalized their name, two didn't.  All seven are a single word, "victor". Checking a more common first name, I find no less than 28…See More

That's me, self portrait, on the first day of my first vacation to coastal Oregon ... where I should've been born.
This is a picture of my 1995 Dodge Neon, taken in March 1994. Brand spankin' new and purdy.

Sadly, NCC Neon has died of motor failure, after 14 years.

I want compensation from smart

Posted on August 18, 2008 at 11:36pm 17 Comments

OK, five weeks since I took delivery. I expected questions, driving such an unusual looking vehicle. And, I don't expect the questions will end for at least a year or two, when the smart will become as common as perhaps the Mini. And, I have to confess, the attention was a lot of fun, for the first 20 days or so. It is starting to wear thin. I don't mind it so much in parking lots or other places I've parked the car. But, people hanging out of their windows taking pictures and SHOUTING at me to… Continue

72 hours from now, a smart fortwo comes home

Well, the financing is pretty much wrapped up. Saturday morning I will be taking delivery of my Blue/Silver/Black Cabriolet! At the moment it seems kinda unreal but most of the footwork has been completed. Tomorrow, an early morning call to the Credit Union ... and a visit at lunch to pick up the draft. They told me their underwriter would only go 100% and to lend me enough to drive off the lot would be 109%. That means I had to secure what amounts to the sales tax from another source ... but… Continue
