Insurance? Who needs it. bah

According to the state of Georgia...I have no insurance, yet I have in my little hand an insurance card. Since according the state I have no insurance, my request for car tags was rejected. It goes like can't get insurance without tags and you can't get tags without insurance. And so the circle goes...

Car is still not fixed. After 20 miles and 2 hours of idling, they were able to reproduce the problem. But, they don't have the part on hand. It should be there Monday or Tuesday. I am taking DC back yet again this week.
The trip to Nashville, delayed again.
On a good note, we went to dinner with Amanda, Calvin and Minimom and her husband (forgot his name) Friday evening at Chipotle. The food was pretty good and it was cool to see all our MINIs in the car park.

Taking DC to Global tonight

I am taking DC in to get the problems fixed tonight after work. Hopefully I will have good news tomorrow.

DC has problems

So I took DC over to Global last Friday since he was having issues with a belt squeal. They weren't able to fix the problem since they didn't test the car the way I told them to. I picked up the car Friday night and within a few minutes I was able to reproduce the problem. My MA (Stephen Johnstone) and the finance guy (Jeff) agreed the problem is with the tensioner pulley. I am taking him back on Thursday and they are supposed to get him fixed this time.
We delayed our trip to Nashville until this coming weekend just to be safe.
I am kind of disappointed that the car is only 3 weeks old and already having problems. I hope that this is just some fluke and after this weekend, he will be good to go!

New Blog

So I have decided that I will start blogging again. I have basically abandoned my account on LJ and my old blog on blogspot. These are the new adventures. I recently bought a new car and am hoping to document some of the encounters that I have with the new car.
