The Mothership Maintenance Log #115


Success.

In six years, since the day I learned how to drive a manual with it, this car has never sounded so good or driven so well.

I won’t bullshit you, it just about brought me to tears when I let the clutch out and there was just wonderful silence.

(Related. From the movie Snow Piercer, which I didn’t like, but this scene came to mind.)


Now all I can do is hope that this isn’t some Pyrrhic victory, and that the transmission continues to work reliably. Only time will tell :woot:

Because the actual pivot for the ball in the shift knob is kinda damaged, otherwise certainly just the bushing.
