YaaaaY!

The Dee8gonator passed the state safety inspection this afternoon. The rear tires are very "iffy." The inside brake light that goes on the rear shelf was missing, and sometimes the SRS light lingers after I fire that bad boy up, but I squeaked through with flying colors today.

It's the little things in life that really make it fun . . . .

Burn whats left of the old rear tires off and get new ones!


I'm so glad CT did away with inspections. You should see some of the crap we have rolling around on the roads these days!

Funny you should ask. If you have some that will fit the back of the Dee8gonator, I'll come and get them.

Yep, some nice 15"s on wheels for my SD.....

Good job passing inspection. Here in CT, it used to be a total crapshoot. Depended on which guy looked at your car, and whether he had a fight with the wife the night before.
