Well, after a few months of trials and tribulations, my new-to-me
V8 5-speed passed NH state safety inspection.  The first inspection
failed due to no reverse lights and the car being lowered. Bah!

I had to farm out the wiring of the reverse lights, and I had a new
steering rack put in to replace the leaking one.  Ka-Ching $$$! I took
the car to a 2nd inspection station, and they found a leaking fuel
filter. A twist of a wrench tightened up the connection, and Bingo!
a new sticker good until next May. :)

Now to sort out a bunch of little niggling faults: brake pad warning,
ABS off light, passenger-side door pull, booming exhaust system,
lack of AC, ...

I did get a mention of the Audifans home page. :)  I should probably
correct some of the misconceptions, though.
