Vehicle Maintenance

Dropped off a 1989 Volvo this morning to Habelt's garage in the sunset this morning. It has not been driven in at least 18 months, but soon I plan to drive it to the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. I replaced the battery in it over the weekend, so it runs, but I want to make sure it will run for at least another thousand miles.

After that I dropped off my 1989 Yamaha Virago to SF Cycle. It was not running right and felt about half power. Turns out my feeling was right, 1 of 2 cylinders was not working.

I have very little interest in vehicle maintenance, I want them to just work when I need them. I try to get my motorcycle serviced at least once a year, and that's where my interest in maintenance stops.
