    1. Still have it. It’s at the shop now. Going to see if it can be revived. It will likely be for sale later this year. Thx!

  1. I saw your video about your Pontiac grand am. I have a 1991 grand am and I still love it. Are you really through with cars?

And I’m just making an effort to drive less, especially in the city/suburbs. I’d rather my driving be limited to fun stuff—road trips, race tracks, canyon drives, etc. 🙂
