Car Problems, Starring the Gahanna, Ohio Tuffy

Since I had the intake manifold replaced on my Crown Vic by Tuffy last week, the car isn't running right. It low-level vibrates and shakes, especially when idling, and feels like it's fighting going forward when you step on the gas. It never did this before I picked up the car after the manifold was put on.

I took the car back to Tuffy, It was doing what I described when I brought it back into their parking lot and when I left, but when they took it out for a drive, they said they couldn't feel anything wrong. They said a computer scan reveals my air flow sensor needs replaced ($450).

The air flow sensor (if that's what's wrong) was working fine before they replaced the intake manifold. I suspect the manifold wasn't put on correctly. They say it was.

This is the Tuffy on Hamilton Rd. next to Gatsby's in Gahanna. ‪#‎carproblems‬ ‪#‎Tuffy‬

Son of the Comic Pop Sketch Book

My schedule's been so insanely busy, I haven't had time to post this sweetly awesome full-color sketchbook I received from Javier Hernandez, complete with a Machine Man drawing!! Many thanks, my friend! I will treasure this.

Here's where you can order your own copy and other cool books by Javier:

Recently Read: The Golden Argosy, September 17, 1887

At this point in the magazine's history, The Argosy was tabloid-size, aimed largely at teen-aged boys, and used a type-face so small as to be nearly unreadable.

The stories herein were nearly all Dickensian variations on the boy who, through happenstance (sometimes villainish) finds himself discredited/poor/outcast/accused and must, through pluck, faith and luck regain the standing he has lost and take his rightful place in society again. 

The issue's filled out with a trading post, terse answers to seemingly hundreds of queries, quaint ads, pen and ink illustrations and non-fiction profiles and antidotes.
