Déjà Phew: Bad luck and a second Moskvich 407

Sour memories from past experiences are meant to protect man from his present and future self. Despite this, I find myself forgetting these wounds so I can grab the glowing red sticks in the fire even after I've been burned. It's something like déjà vu but with more lasting consequences.

Ouch! Here’s to the car-nut fraternity, anyway — saving the day yet again, across cultures and borders.

And I thought I had the worst luck.

Many of us have had similar "what was I thinking?" moments, but not many on this scale.

Gee none of my wacky contraptions have ended up in a museum. Yet.

I like the BMW wagon. They really are very strict in Germany.

To say they are strict is an understatement.
A childhood friend lived in Germany for a few years, transferred by a major Ag company. He wanted to take his Camaro but the red tape and inspections were too much.
The company had a fleet of vehicles for Americans that weren’t there permanently.
