Well my trusty friend-car “Solomon Grimes” aka the “Blue Beast” officially has fallen in battle.  It’s insides blew apart trying to spirit me across the NH/Maine boarder.  It never complained and always kept me safe.  Even with it’s timing belt whipping out and breaking the inside of the engine, it died without a sound and I was able to slowly and safely pull over, to check it’s vitals and declare it.  I’d call my car a hero but it wouldn’t of liked that.  It was an honest and stalwart machine.  Dover NH will no longer hear your triumphant exhaust-less – roar of thunder echoing through downtown at all hours of the night.  You will be missed old friend.
