Yeah, it smells something between Tri-Flow and Pledge. Very pleasant actually. I know it must not be too bad, because Michelle doesn't give me crap when I bring it in the house.

The funny thing is that I probably had that very can sitting in the cupboard here for 10 years. I won it as a contingency prize back in the day at the Battle of the Imports and I never bothered to see what it even was...LOL Now when I bust out the Motul can it looks like I'm really ballin'.

They apparently have a new look and name after 10 years or so. Go figure.

Well SoCal is closed now so it's pretty much only pegasus. Unless HotRod hobbies is close to you guys, I know it's a long ways from San Diego.

It would be awesome if someone were to get one of these closing down grocery stores and recreate the original So Cal. Probably a pipe dream and I wish I had the nuts to dive in and give it a shot.

We looked into that about 11-12 years ago. It is unbelievable what these people want for a vacant building. No matter where it is or who you talk too, it's always "A Prime Location" and they want and arm and a leg for rent. Some of the places that were vacant 11 or 12 years ago are still vacant. It's too bad.

It is pretty amazing that they would rather get nothing then something for these places. They aren to free when sitting vacant either. They still have to pay taxes on the building year after year!

Oh well.

Actually, one of the places was a complete plaza!!

And it's still empty, last we saw. Owner wanted to do

something the city didn't want, and so the rent was so

high, nobody moved in!! Guess he's just taking a write-off

and waiting for the city to change it's mind. In the meantime,

the property has really gone up in value!!

It's a shame, really!

It's sunny and windy here...and it didn't rain much at all last night, so we may be OK for Pegasus tomorrow. Cross your fingers.
