Fall '05 Car Polish

Ed: Sadly the pictures are lost in the ether.

Tonight I offloaded the all-weather tires from the Jetta and mounted the Blizzaks in their place. After banging my head on a 14“ tire wrench (not literally), I hit NAPA and picked up a 20” wrench. Much better. Based on my experiences getting this wrench, I will now always choose NAPA before Autozone. I’m sure they care.

This reminded me that Luke and I polished the old girl again this fall and I never did post any pictures. So here you go.

The cast of characters. First, the Jetta:

A couple photos of the vehicles in front of Federated Insurance’s original building. The building is probably 85 years old or older. Not exactly sure how old it is:

Reverse angle. The building across the street is the main Josten’s office in Owatonna:
