Here you have your facts wrong, Costco is a top tier fuel with detergents. I have found Shell especially runs terrible in my auto's and yet Costco runs great. Never had a problem. Costco keeps their filters clean and has all their certs clearly displayed on their top tier status with detergents. 

There is no reason to pay more money at Shell, Cheveron, Esso, Exxon, etc. The spec's today have really taken away any benefit those gas stations have. 

One place to stay away from is the Krogers, Walmart, etc. discount gas stations where they want you to pay extra for detergent when you pump and clearly have no standards on when they change fuel filters, etc.

I get the Kroger fuel points, but rarely use them now.

The Cobalt hates Kroger gas....

After lots of European crime dramas the last few weeks, been goofing off with '80s comedies this afternoon.. 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels', 'Spies Like Us', and ‘Fletch’ in the evening...love vintage Chevy Chase, Dan Ackroyd, Steve Martin...

Been a quiet weekend... baked some orange roughy and veggies today...

Up to 88 today after 86 yesterday.   Crazy, went from 40s a couple weeks ago to 80s.   Had the windows open yesterday and enjoyed some breezes and fresh air, but upstairs was too warm last night...fired up the AC at 1:30 am for the first time this year.

10 min project: wanted to add under-dash courtesy lamps [inspired by my P-60 parts car]. Had these 1W LED mini lights I recently ordered, and they fit perfectly in these chrome cabinet washers. Not too bright at 1W, they’ll do some illumination of the entry ports.

Top tier fuel like Shell and Chevron among others is the only way to go. I never run anything but Top Tier in my vehicles. It does make a difference running a quality fuel and having the detergents to clean as gasoline by itself can carbon up the valves and combustion chamber pretty fast. Not to mention the money you will end up saving on repairs of a gummed up fuel system and filters running cheap gas like Costco or (insert name) grocery store gas station. Makes me cringe every time I see the long line of cars at Costco gas pumps, don't get me wrong I love Costco, but would never pump their gas in my rides.

Monsieur du Quebec, j'ai trouve' un YouTube situe' dans ton ville, sur une des rues principales

First, can you understand what those French people talking smack in the background are saying?

I had seen this about a month ago and thought you'd enjoy it.

This is one sweet Cutlass Supreme.  It's obviously been kept shielded from the elements. A few things: 

- it needs its hood ornament back ... it would look better

- it would look better with the alloy wheels instead of the wire wheel covers ... and the optional all aluminum alloys were even nicer than the much used body colored rally wheels

- I'm not crazy about the two-tone paint - they could have thrown on a white landau vinyl top instead ... I remembered this video since we were recently discussing the Seafoam fuel system product ... this might be considered a metallic sea foam green, but Olds called it metallic Jadestone 

- check out at about 2:25 into the video - this car has NO air conditioning and it's the top of the line Brougham!

- I like everything else about it ... I wonder which engine it had ... there would have only been 2 gasoline options that year:  the 3.8 V6 or the small Olds V8

Tres belle ... beautiful!

Imma gonna do some American pop culture references to Hazzard and Kentucky as only a Greek boy from French territory Canada would know about a certain Hazzard County and the beautiful state of Kentucky.  

Blue Moon of Kentucky keep on shining...

 

And of course, Hazzard County.  This particular Hazzard  is of course,  fictional...

I do realize that Hazard, KY is spelled with one "z" and is of course, a real place. 

 

Oh...and I happen to love the tune, Red River Valley.

Worked on some layout plans for the interior. From the factory- the only interior light is 1 dome light. Thinking about adding courtesy lamps on the bottom edge of the dash, pointing downward to light ingress/egress. Also planning on where/how to mount an upgrade- 4-way flashers [not required until '67 federal law]. These additional lights require some hole drilling- so making sure a. I want to pull the trigger, and b. there won't be anything behind there that would interfere with new components.

DONE :

Here's a direct shot with the parking brake warning light lit (by flashlight).
The 4-way flasher knob should also flash red in the center when activated (there's a bulb in there, not sure if it blinks).

'mountain folk' walking into town, Hazard KY 1940 :

My folks were in that area then...my Mom was from nearby Hindman and was 9 then, and my Dad was from Prestonsburg and 19..  he would join the Army Air Corps in 1941, then they met after the war.

In present day NE Ohio,

I've been enjoying great weather this weekend...spending time in the backyard and grilling/cooking..grilled some bacon-wrapped filets yesterday, and today made chicken habanero tamales and margaritas.
