For those who are interested....

.....in what a car looks like when it starts after treating the engine with Miracle Mystery Oil, I was going to post a video, but I can't get it to upload. BOO! So I'll just tell you about it. It smelled vile, and was really smoky. Keep in mind that we started the car at 9 AM this morning, too, just as some of the neighbors were leaving for church. Oh so fun! I shot three minutes of footage (not even the whole thing, it took quite a while for all the smoke to come out of the car). Then we went for a quick drive to get the rest of it out. I think we freaked a couple of early morning drivers out when smoke started pouring out of the tailpipe. Oh well. We also had to get the oil changed to finish the cleaning out of the engine. Now it runs perfectly. I'm so happy!

Although, I did find out that two of my tires have essentially no tread, and the third is almost there. I just replaced a tire a few months ago. What the heck?! Seriously, can't my car stay fixed for more than two minutes?!

I didn't know that you two were still smoking. I thought you had kicked that habit;0

Sometimes I wish we could just shoot them and get a new one.
