How's tricks? (How's it going?)
Don't mind him, he's a haggis-eating, wooden mushroom maker...kind of like one of The Shed's mystical creatures...hahaha....(and I temporarily forgot that I'm not talking to him!!)

Last time I played an actual record? Can't even remember.
But I do remember the very first record I ever bought myself....the 45 of "Dizzy" by Tommy Roe!

I forgot to ask what the starting fault was on your car...
Was it the spark plugs?
Dirty Fuel/Air Filter?
Low battery?
A.N. Other

Oh, I still don't know. Going to get the mechanic to look at it over the weekend (he sold it to me).

All I know is that I learned this.
My starter has 3 clicks to it before it fires up.

So I turned off the radio and fan, then turned the key 1 click. Turned the second click and listened to hear a faint "whirring" sound (fuel pump I think?)...then when that sound stopped, I turned it the third click and it fired up right away!

For now I'm happily ignorant of the problem, as long as I can still go out and return, lol.

1983. I was 11. We had just moved back to Minnesota from Rhode Island through Anaheim. I had a big crush on the pretty blonde girl up the hill.

I think my first 45 was "Hunting High And Low" by A-ha, although it may have been "Primitive Love" by Miami Sound Machine.
Gloria Estefan was a babe.

Well, in fairness... I was neither married or pregnant in '83!
I was still in my teens!
At college studying Applied Physics!!
As Cool as a grandad's old cardigan.
Down with the.... the rural tedium that came with being a big awkward clumsy country lad who hadn't yet passed his driving test, but did have a wee motorbike to "putt putt" about on.

I couldn't "like" AC/DC back then because they had long hair and I was much more inclined to the spikey haired punk thing! hehe - LOVE AC/DC now of course!

Spikey haired punk thing? Dead Kennedys? Sex Pistols? Joy Division?

Friend of mine was an uber-nerd for The Cure. Before they were even remotely famous.

Turning off radio, fan, lights etc limits the strain on the battery - giving full power to starting the engine!
Whirring sound will be fuel pump. That's it "priming" sending fuel to the cylinders. It's best to let it finish doing that if starting has been problematic.
There are so many things that can cause poor starting - I'm sure your mechanic will nail it quickly though.

Shep!!
OMFG!! YES, YES, YES and HELL YES!!!
All of the above were very big features on my playlists back then.
Dead Kennedys "Holiday in Cambodia" was one of my faves... I have it on 7" vinyl somewhere here to this day, but only just dug out my turntable for the first time in years tonight!

I used to have to walk when I couldn't afFORD a car! (sorry, had to get in on the car brand joke, lol)

*throws stale donuts at the youngun's and hollers at them to "Get off my lawn!!!"*
Hmph.

I think age-wise I'm like Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt movie, for you kids)...I was a prissy old-fashioned "middle-aged" child...then a not very rebellious teenager...who seems to have regressed into a playful childhood now.
I'm totally okay with that. Just wish my body would cooperate.

Dead Kennedys were pretty hardcore punk back then. I remember them having almost a ska sound - but it's been probably 30 years since I listened to any of their stuff.

I was actually more of a mainstream kid - primarily U2 and that sort of protest alternative music, rather than hard core punk. But I went through a phase there where I had virtually no friends except the punks, because they accepted me as I was. It was kind of funny - I remember going to hear a punk concert at First Avenue in Minneapolis (don't even remember who it was) with all these leather jackets and spikes and green & purple hair and collars and stuff. I went in a Girbaud jean jacket and a Vuarnet tank with my moussed mullet. One of these is not like the others. What was awesome is that all the hard core punks didn't care this totally preppy kid was there, they were cool with it.

Not if you let me call you a "little punk", hehe...

Can I admit that I was a Sex Pistols fan?
Then there was the summer that I listened to only country music and possibly wore a cowboy hat out in public.
I call myself a 'rock chick' but really, my playlist has everything from metal to Eminem...to Johnny Cash...to Lady Gaga.
Eclectic fer sure.
