Charged my battery

I don't "blog". I "micro" blog using Twitter now. However, some things are worth talking about in more than 250 character increments. My 68 goat is one of them. Hopefully this is one of many future blog posts on the car. If not, it means that I'm doing anything to the car. And that would suck.
So, does this say something about how often I drive the GTO? I went out and got a battery charger at Harbor Freight cause the "new" battery that I bought for the goat was dead (ok, it wasn't new but it wasn't "used" either). Car wouldn't start. So sad. A few hours later, the battery was fully charged and the car started right up.
So I took the car for a little spin afterwards and remembered one reason why I don't drive it - carbon monoxide poisoning. Exhaust fumes are somehow leaking into the cabin while driving. I think this is because I don't have any weather stripping. I'm going to blame it on an exhaust leak and use that as an excuse to get new headers and full exhaust. Thinking Flowmaster with single chambers.
Meanwhile, I must admit that my other passion has taken over... my new toy.... a 2006 Lotus Exige. But that's a topic for another blog post (like my firstat the Streets of Willow Springs).
