I really like that she seems to prefer a firm grip on the steering wheel and a little choke really gets her motor running!


just curious is the steering wheel her hair? My wife hates that.... thinking about giving her a native american name nickname "Tenderhead"

Pretty sure steering wheel is her neck. Or at least that's how it works with mine.

Just generally she seems to like it if I do the driving.

The choke is... well, that's the choke but I only use it when she's runnin hot.

Leasing a '94 right now. Low mileage at the start of the lease but accumulating very quickly. Definitely plan on renewing. Would just assume go for the buyout when the lease is up but don't think that's gonna be an option

"A little choke"

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?

Mine can't seem to make up her mind on whether she wants to be a new-fangled self-driving model and take me for a spin or whether she wants me to drive the wheels off 'er.

Sometimes these newer models can be a little fussy at first but, with the right grip on the wheel and mash on the gas when you need to clean out the pipes, they will usually straighten out and purr like a kitten.
I'll be glad to show you what I mean. Bring her over, I'll put her on the lift and check that out for ya.

Oh and by the way, just because you recently discovered them in some you were watching doesn't mean they are "new" tricks!! HA haha

Believe it or not, I'm enjoying the quirks in the new model. Gives it some character, y'know?

And hey, fiddlin with the choke to get her running real good is nothing new, but I'll tell ya that I was a bit taken aback when I reached for the choke and I got the choke pulled on me.

well, in line with the thread...
I had a 52 model for better than 20 years and it got weird on me... walked away from that model but then it seems that model was repaired, got it back and did not make it but a year that time....never gonna have that 52 again...
after a couple years having no model year at all...got a 58 model in fine shape, have had that model for 19 years, figure it is the model I will have when i die.
Simply could not ask for a more comfortable model with better all around performance... has blessed me.
