I drove the acclaim to work today.
After a wild week last week, I was doing a final inspection of the Acclaim friday night when I noticed something unnerving. There was a huge leak in the brake lines. The kind of leak that made a mini-Niagra whenever the brake pedal was pressed. Being that I had a full weekend planned, I caved in and brought it to my favorite brake place. They were able to finish everything up by this morning and the acclaim was triumphant on the ride to work this morning.
I still need to do some clean up work. I wasn’t able to tighten a few of the bolts as much as I would like… and the oil needs changing. But I think the car will do just fine until the weekend. Heavens I love that car. Despite last week, she’s been so reliable for the 8 years that I’ve had the opportunity to drive her. I love that car.
