Two guys, a dog, and a repair shop
Welcome. This little part of the web will be my life at Willie's Repair. Not really the day to day work but the other things in life. Projects, past and present, special goings on, info about the automotive world or anything else I care to associate automotive.

A Sharp Eye Needed
Look at this tire closely and tell me what is wrong. Well, what is wrong isn't really wrong in the manufacturers eyes but to me it looks like hell to do it the way it was done. Marketing? I'm not really sure but I didn't catch it right away until I went to balance the tire. It just looked odd spinning on the balancer and then I noticed it.

Today it was announced that the "high speed rail" from Milwaukee to Madison is "on hold". What should have been reported is the "slow speed rail" is "done".
This project never made sense from the beginning. One, we don't have the Population for it. Two, we wouldn't be able to fund it without raising taxes, or fees, or hoping rainbows crap dollar bills. And three, we don't have the Population for it. Oh wait, said that once already.
Some links for your reading.
Local News says the project is on hold
But once you read this link below you can see the writing on the wall. The incoming Representative from Florida will be redirecting the money where it is needed.

October didn't happen
What the hell happened? Yes. I skipped October. I really had nothing automotive to think about or even discuss.
The typical work, work, family, work, screw off, drink beer, work, beer. That was about it.
I did miss LeMon's in Chicago. I totally missed it. I really wanted to go but the whole situation didn't work out. Money, family, life. Hell, It just wasn't something I could pull off with two kids, wfie , house and the shop and stuff. It makes me realize it will be a long time before I take my hopes of racing serious. Not that am giving it up. I just know I can't do that when there are other things to focus on.
I am going to try and focus some posts on anything automotive I can think of. Anyhoo. I'm not dead so don't give up on me!
