good day...bad day? good day!

For my non motor-head friends. This is an engine with a blower on it, aka a blown engine. Engine art to me.



OK, I need to make up my mind. I'll take the good day. It started out good with the award, then I had a doctor appointment and after a painful breast exam and possibly not so good results, I was feeling down and was going to go shopping to make myself feel better. But then I told myself....no....just go home and do some work in the studio. So I turned the car towards home and there it was! Simple things make me happy. A '69 Camaro with a blown engine pulls out onto the road ahead of me. It was great! I stayed behind it for a while and with my window down, I sucked in the fumes of the mighty engine. Then the light turned red and I was side by side with this thing of beauty. We just passed a police with a car pulled over. The racing blood in me was boiling but I just wanted to see this car from the front, so when the light turned green , off I went. Shifting my gears, just to get ahead to view the car from the front and I did. And then he kicked it in a blew by me. I smiled all the way home.

What's this about going to the dr? You just kinda skimmed right over that.
