Indy #1578 is back on the road!
I passed my safety inspection, but not without a little drama. I see the guy open the hood and I'm thinking, "this can't be good"
Okay so yes, I took it to Jiffy Lube, For a safety inspection even they can't screw that up, here's what is checked.

6. Brakes (system) (Parking - beginning with 1960 models)

11. Beam Indicator (beginning with 1948 models)

So I ask him, "why are you opening the trunk" I called it the trunk to highlight the fact that if he's looking for the engine that's not it.
Second I'm wondering why he needs to see the engine. Nothing on the list indicated I even need to have an engine. So I open the decklid anyway. Then I get the ole check the power steering answer....
Well good luck with that.
After staring aimlessly at the engine while a few of the other workers crowd around because they've never seen a Fiero before, I get my certificate. These guy get real pissed when you make them look stupid, but I can't help it if they don't know where the engine is.
Took the Indy on an 80 mile cruise and it didn't catch fire or break down, so that is always a good day.
