Make Her Go Vroom Vroom Dr. Boles!

So, my DINAN Free Flow exhaust came in the other day. Nothing like a big box of shiny new stuff to bring a smile to my face :-). I got a call from Wayne at Steve Dinan Autotech the other day about the exhaust. Have you ever ordered a new exhaust system? It comes in a HUGE, and rather intimidating box... LOL!

I was so thrilled to get it. Thankfully, it would be installed there so I did not have to deal with it. Wayne would be playing the part of surgeon for this procedure. It was time to get some new "cans" on the old girl and give her a more dignified sound. The exhaust that the car came with was simply appalling. It was flatulent, made the car run terrible due to restricted flow and was God awful to look at. It was like coming across an angry ogre who just ate a bad plate of beans! Dreadful!

Wayne pulled her into the operating theater (The workshop here is so uBer clean, I felt like just lying down on the floor) and did his thing.... and before you could say "Ogre Exhaust be gone!", it was done! Okay.... maybe it took a little bit longer than that.

Right out of surgery, the car was a different animal. It sounds SO much more refined. There was still a nice, somewhat civilized growl to it though, so it could still show it's audio teeth when necessary.

Driving it was where you could see the BIGGEST difference. It was so so so so so SO much smoother. Did I say it was smoother? By God Yes! Throttle response was on point, driving and engine running was very smooth. Who would have thunk it - exhaust flow plays a major part in a car's performance? Well, I'm sure we all know that already. If not, well you know who to call - Wayne "The Surgeon" Boles at Stever Dinan Autotech. The team there can sort you out.


We ALL matter, ALL of us.  Whatever your race, creed, color, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, marital status, and socioeconomic status.  We ALL matter; let's stop the violence!

There are a lot of sad, tragic things happening these days.  Rather than tearing ourselves apart, we should come together, band together and solve the issues together.  Let's not allow a few bad apples to spoil the whole bunch that is US.  It still rings true that we will either stand united or fall divided.




I posted the above back in 2016 when I journeyed across the US.  It is now the summer of 2020.  Back then, there was racial tension, there were a number of tragic things happening.  I truly believed in the message that ALL lives mattered and still matter today. 


But, here we are - again - about four years later and it seems like the clock went backwards.  This time however, it seems more focused on Black people.  It is hard for me to just say ALL Lives Matter as I did then as it seems there has been a recurring tragic impact on the Black / African American community - particularly here in the United States.  


That said though, I do have to voice out that BLACK LIVES MATTER!  This term is not to say other lives don't matter, or matter less.  At this moment in time, Black lives are at risk, very high risk and so we MUST pay focused attention to this.  For us all to matter, we must ALL matter equally and that equality has not yet been achieved.
