Sounds like a handcrank to me. Cars still use handcranks? And I thought Europe was so technologically advanced.
Oh, yeah, that's the word! Well, considering that my car was not very modern at the time it was constructed 32 years ago, it's not that surprising it uses a handcrank. It was one of the last models of european cars that still used it. But you know, it's not such a bad thing when you think about it...Better than having to push your car around to get it started..
|And dude, my car can start up at -15F. Below that I have to plug in my block heater so the engine will turn. Do you have a weak battery or what? I am not surpried from looking at the picture of your car. |
Yeah, the battery is weak. And I'm too lazy to go buy a new one...
|On to weather. Today it was a unseasonably warm 39 degrees above zero. The snow was melting and the streets became a slushy mess. |
Wow, 39 in North Dakota? God, that's like, unbeliavable for this time of year. Must be global warming or something. Here it's below 0C but it's raining which kinda makes the streets perfect for iceskating and breaking bones. I bet hospitals are crowded with old people now...
