Pictures For A Tuesday

First, this picture:



Yes, I ordered the ZR1 wheels and they arrived yesterday. Of course, as is the story of my life, this endeavor was not without hiccups.

First, it took almost five weeks for the wheels to arrive after they were ordered and paid for. Second, you might be able to notice a mark on the top wheel. Yes, it is damaged right out of the box.

The company puts a three-year warranty for finish on the wheels. I don’t want to send just one wheel back for repair or replacement. Let’s see how the company handles this situation.

I am glad the wheels are here, but my enthusiasm is dampened by the circumstances.


Now, to your regularly scheduled programming:



The monsoon season is now active in Arizona. Although we haven’t received too much rain, except for June 23rd, many parts of Arizona are getting much-needed rain. That precipitation can create some beautiful cloud pictures.



This picture of a Datsun 1600 was taken at the (lightly attended) Pavilions Rock & Roll Car Show my wonderful wife and I attended recently. The car looks British to me (yes, I know it’s Japanese) and, I must say, is quite fetching. I have always had a thing for roadsters.



The fact that this diagram refers to a 7-speed automatic means this is for the initial model year of the C7, 2014. In 2015, the 8L90E automatic transmission was introduced (itself not without hiccups). The “8” in the name means 8-speed.



Hope you have enjoyed the photos. It is 50-50 that the first installment (of two) for Ultimate Garage 3.0 will be published tomorrow.
