    AWESOME! Glad to hear you are back to driving a real car! I feel your pain on that temporary ride. I had a rental like that. The first day I wanted to set it on fire and push it off a cliff.

    Not quite Y2K, but close. The radio mfg (Denso) programmed the three digit code into the radio at a time when 3 digits was the norm at only somewhere around 250. Apparently that guy assumed the GPS code would roll over at 999, not the 1024 as is the case. GM, without knowing the future problem, ordered upgraded radios for 2011 models and that programmer knew that the GPS week number code would eventually reach 1024 (aka 2 to the 10th power), so those won't ever have this problem. Now that Denso and GM have egg faces, you can bet that any other programmer or QA guy will be aware of the possible problem. Since this is just starting to hit GM in the butt and all affected cars are out of factory warranty, no fix is currently available. GM/Denso may find a solution or decide to wait until April to see if it cures itself and hope they get another 19 years without it recurring. I'd suspect they'll play the wait and see game, betting on only a small number of cars will be disconnecting the battery in the next 3 months. Dealers will probably tell customers that GM is working to restore everything and should be back to normal in early April. Seeing it's not a safety issue, there won't be a recall.

    1982. I'm on the right. My younger brother on the left. The guy in the center is a long time friend (Kenny), who has owned the same 64 Vette since 1980. 2018. I'm still the one on the right, just in case you weren't sure. 😁 Time has a way of stealing my hair. So, a couple of stories here. The top shot was taken as me and Kenny (middle guy) were assembling the short block for my 1974 Javelin/AMX. We were all smiles, because we had not yet noticed that the pistons were coming up above the block deck by about .030. They were Venolia 12:1 pistons for a 390 engine, not a 401. The speed shop I ordered them from fucked up. That tool box on the right is still with me, and it's just become more crowded over the years. I need another tool box, or a larger one, to fit all my stuff. The other story was Kenny's 64. The car still looks the same, and it's sanitary inside and out. Back in 1982, this car was making about 500HP on a naturally aspirated small block (no stroker crank), and about 600HP with a nitrous shot. This car was about the fastest thing on the road (Massachusetts) back then. Kenny more or less followed some Smokey Yunick formula for a NASCAR engine, and it was a good formula. This thing could just spin at 7,000 RPM and not flinch. As a matter of fact, I remember seeing his tach go past the 7,000 mark, down to where it says "RPM X 100". The worst damage this car ever saw was a broken roller rocker or bent pushrod. I remember one day, Kenny killing a rocker arm. He pulled the valve cover and tossed in a new one that he carried with him, and we were back on the road in 20 minutes. Kenny would beat on the car all summer, then pull the engine in the winter, go through it, and give it the attention it needed. He still is an excellent motorhead. S.C.

    Mo, Auto Nation Chevrolet in Mesa is where I bought my Camaro. I won't shop anyplace else. The purchase was awesome and their service department is the best in the valley as far as I'm concerned. Anthony is my service advisor and he's great. I think if anyone can figure out the issue with your car, it's them. Good luck and keep us posted.

    When I started coming to Ace, I remember meeting him and chuckling thinking “what goofy guy wears name tags? Especially when they’re not at work.” Just now I’m realizing why he did it, so the new people would feel comfortable approaching him maybe. Great guy all around. He’s made a lot of people sad this week.

    Numbers 1, 3, and 4 are the top internet sales dealers. Good price breaks without the hassle of dealing with sales people. The difference between the Phx prices and that of Les Stanford paid for our flight to Detroit and all expenses for the next 30 days while we wandered around aimlessly before arriving back home with 5,500 miles on the car.

    Years ago Van's service writer advised me that I needed my C5 tires rotated - 17s/18s with directional tires. Guess I looked like a clueless woman with a Corvette to him, he seemed surprised when I cancelled my service appointment.

    My understanding is no, but car dealers are like Applebee's. Someone's awesome experience is often followed by someone else's experience that is totally negative and they're both right.

    There are no Van Tuyl dealers in town, and haven't been for a while. They are all owned by Warren Buffet's Berkshire-Hathaway now.

    With a heavy heart I am letting all the friends of Bad Bob Combs know that he passed away this morning about 10am. He is in Heaven, now, and is so relieved to no longer take a handful of pills day and night. He was grateful for all your likes and posts during these tough times. God Bless you sweet Bobby.
