Had to install a new VVT-i intake cam gear on the Matrix....

It started making a noise on start up and after a little help from google I figured out what was wrong. I went to Cagles and took one off a 2011 corolla and replaced the bad one today.

Washed my brown BF Goodrich T/A's again....

I hit them with brake fluid, then LA Awesome and finished up with a SOS pad. I even washed the whole car while I was at it.

YouTube rabbit hole leads to a new favorite band....

The Dead South....  Only album I have ever bought on itunes. Worth every cent. Best way I can describe them....Musically--Earl Scruggs meets Dropkick Murphys with lyrics by Motley Crue.

Smith's 11-4-19 report....

Good day at the creek with 3 generations of Wheeler's....I caught 12 with the largest about 14" I turned a few more that big or larger.  Most were just typical stocker size but still fun. I ended up fishing more or less between the better holes as there were quite a few folks on the stream. Below is the only photo I snapped.

Original wheels, tires and hubcaps off my 2009 Toyota Matrix for sale.....

The tread left on the tires is about what you would get at a used tire store for 40 to 50 bucks....Hubcaps are in good shape they should 10 to 15 each and I'm guess 30 to 40 for the wheels.

On the low end that's $320 I think I'll ask $200.
