So much goodness to learn. How awesome that you found this book just after your phd.
I felt that connection with my first car. She had a name… kingagirl. Anytime she needed mechanical attention I would talk to her.
Admittedly my Dad would be there to help me too… but I did majority of the hands on.
I have my first grown up car since my kids came along…a camry. It is the first time I don’t feel that connection… or urge to do the services… my partner is a mechanic so I leave most of it to him.
I mean I appreciate it’s reliability but there really was something about knowing that kingagirl needed 3 pumps of the pedal, a choke at half set, and just off neutral to start her up.
Love the trip down memory lane n getting a new appreciation.
Thanks as always for being you.
