I tried Rock Auto and no joy.  They show an air temp sensor but it's the wrong type.  The sensor on the Dodge appears to have been made by one manufacturer and they stopped production in 2005.  If the wire trick hadn't worked I would have had to check junk yards for one.

Looks like I've ridden my last this season. Cold weather and snow comes this weekend, that means salt and calcium chloride in biblical amounts on our streets.

Saw a Smart Car pulled over by a Caroline county deputy yesterday.  I laughed for about 5 miles afterwards just thinking about it.

No, not at all.  I could barely fit in one.  My Prius is gargantuan by comparison and runs on regular fuel and has a suspension.  I get better gas mileage as well.  I just have visions of clowns piling out of that car....

Dern it.  I actually seriously considered a Prius, but along came the TDi and %0 financing.  Not to mention it is far sportier and maintains speed over any pass, both ways ;D  This last week the MPG has dropped to an average of 42, winter blend maybe?

The Haven episode aired last Friday night had a Zenith Transoceanic H500 in one of the scenes.  I nearly fell out of my couch.  My wife thought I was nuts (I am, but that's beside the point).  I am in progress of restoring one of those now.  Unfortunately, I deleted it.  Will be keeping an eye on the SciFi channel for the rerun or I may catch it on directv...

Oh joy, it's on Directv VOD.  Downloading now...

We shattered the record high temp for our area on this date. It was 60 set in 1916 and that record fell this morning at 11, it's 67 right at the moment.    :o

You deleted a complete receiver? Please explain the 'deleted' aspect of this. CERN has been working on 'deleting'  matter for a while now but they can only do it one particle at a time....

Ah yes...I see said the blind man as he stepped off the cliff...  The show, not the receiver.  Actually, just saw another one on Pawn Stars (Putt, Putt, Pawn).  Rick was talking to a woman who wanted to sell a red Pepsi box from the 50's and I saw another Transoceanic (G500 this time) on a shelf.  When it rains it pours.
