Turns out the car was stolen this morning, then dumped and torched behind my house. Fortunately, the city is dealing with towing it, and then it's all over but the insurance claim.

And as an added bummer for the owner, he had an outstanding felony warrant, so in addition to having a bunch of his tools burnt up (they were in the back of the car), he's going to jail this morning.

My next update will hopefully be scooter-related.
The irony of the model name of the car and the owner's disposition. Perhaps there's a correlation?

Not to mention the scooter crashes!

Seriously, though, East Nashville is an area that's "in transition." It's just over the river from downtown (I'm two miles away from downtown and can see the skyline from my front windows) and Oracle is building their new global HQ about 3/4 of a mile from me.

The original 1920's houses here are being bought up and either renovated or torn down and replaced with 2-3 "tall skinnies," which are as the name implies, tall skinny houses much like a greystones/brownstones or townhouse in older cities, but that's a piecemeal process. Nashville's government is really into increasing housing density, which is creating some interesting economic dynamics, especially when combined with the large numbers of people moving here from California, Chicago, and other major cities where even the high-end housing here is considered "cheap" and thus crowding local buyers out of the market.

A non-trivial number of those "tall skinnies" are being bought by investors and used as AirBnB's until they flip them, resulting in a lot of DUI's, Public Intoxication, and general stupidity by tourists, too. There are three such properties a block up my street, and there's one a couple blocks over from me that has had multiple parties that turned into brawls or shots fired this year. I slept through the shooting, but all the news helicopters circling it for "live morning reports" woke me up early the next morning.

Several big housing projects and Section 8 (subsidized housing) apartment complexes around me have also been closed and are being renovated or torn down for redevelopment, which is displacing a lot of long-time residents, too.

You can really see it in the turnover of the businesses on the local commercial strips, though. The sketchy restaurants, used tire stores, payday loan places and pawn shops are all going away, being replaced with wine bars (yay!), hip restaurants, and boutiques.

And as is always the case with major demographic and economic disruption, it creates a lot of chaos for the local criminals. I remember when they started closing down Cabrini Green in Chicago and it led to some unbelievable gang wars and shootouts as the gangs in one high rise would be displaced and forced to try and take another gang's territory.

Funny thing is, even with all that, my insurance is significantly *cheaper* here than it was in Chicago.

Now living in the suburbs, there is a lot I miss about a more urban lifestyle. But, Having lived in similar neighborhoods have experienced much of what you describe. I don't miss that kind of activity but, you take the good with the bad.

Yup.

Funny thing is, I kind've enjoy the excitement, I just wish I didn't have to deal with the pain-in-the-ass factor of dealing with filing insurance claims and getting things fixed.

Also, I don't feel bad about ripping around on my loud-ass scooters in a neighborhood where every other vehicle is either a too-loud 4x4, a wanna-be tuner, or pumping bass.

I'm not looking forward to the rise of the Karen Factor, which is already becoming a thing based on what my wife relays to me from the Neighbors app. I told her to respond to that post with a posting for "Lost Snake. Very friendly. Answers to 'Bitey.' Last seen in the vicinity of 7th & Vernon Winfrey."

I got an email from my nephew in Greece. He sent these pics of home delivery fast food flyers that were hanging on my shop door. I wonder if those two are part of their delivery fleet.


can't see any scooters in there now, but the faded top sign says Vespa Club in Greek more or less


food looks OK, but what the Hell scooter is that in their logo? I smell a RAT!

As defined by the Urban Dictionary.

More generically, it's a symptom of gentrification where people move to an area, then complain about aspects of the area, usually the things that give it character rather than being just another bland chain store/restaurant suburban hellscape, that were present before their arrival.

Ah right. There was a very well-known pub and live venue in Melbourne a few years back that was closed down in just those circumstances. It had been there forever and nobody could claim they weren't aware of it before buying into the area.

Which pub Michael? Happened to a few good ones here in Sydney too - The Annandale and The Hopetoun - both great live venues sadly long gone. Must have happened to others as well as the inner city became gentrified.

I used to be in a band and we'd travel to Melbourne and Geelong once a year for a few shows. Played at The Tote, The Richmond, Prince of Wales, Punters Club, Evelyn. They're probably all gone now as music venues. Was so lucky to grow up in the great Aussie pub rock scene.

So I was getting ready to bring back the unused can of paint to Napa Auto Parts (the Smurf blue color) and was checking out the dried paint on the can. Nice and dark, like it's supposed to be.

Then it dawned on me. WHITE TALCUM POWDER

So if you use talcum to get rid of the sheen, take into account it'll change the color too...

Great ride with the local crew.
Kyle's blue VNA -the Turquoise Terror (with the highly tuned 200 engine) is a ridiculous ride. Tops out at well over 70… just insane.

The box is a pilot ejection system!🙃

No… it's a tach and temperature gauge to let you know when you are about to explode.

It's a helluva machine.

The internship was great! It for sure beat up this old body something fierce -- was on 6 days and OT for around 5 weeks. However!.... I learned a lot, stayed away from Covid crowds, experienced Nor Cal (hit a deer with my car and smashed both up). and now have a "story to tell" that is pretty cool. Its a great memory, new friends were made and already has opened some doors to employment.

And...I was able to take one of the scoots with me!

I was at Copain Wines in Healdsburg, California, Sonoma County. PM me if you want some recommendations for the area. See the thread I created on the (2) project scoots that are up there, if you need a winter project.

HUGE THANK YOU to eternal Bro -- SoCalGuy. He loaned me the hitch rack to take the scoot. Great dude all the way 'round and I will return it this week buddy.

Cheers Birdnest and forum peeps. sorry for taking up so much page space....

Office views could not be beat!

Fast forward. Home and workin' on the white p again…

Wait a minute...you had dinner in LA last night and you're back in Houston this afternoon???

Were you doing some sort of mini-cannonball?

The only way I'd ever do that would be by plane.

Ha!

Probably would have been about the same amount of hours.

First flight was canceled.
Then rerouted on some Midwest us odyssey that was like 14 hours with lay overs.

We eventually rebooked completely ftw.

Ouch! Been there, done that, more times than I care to count. That was one of the downsides of being a road warrior pre-COVID.

I threw this into my welding thread, but I made this folding frame (and soon to be engine) stand this weekend and I'm so proud of myselfI just had to share here, too.

Investigated the low RPM clunkety clunk I was hearing.

Confirmed my suspicions of loose clutch. Though wasn't the nut. Fortunately. I caught it before it did damage to the crank.

Make sure you hand fit those keys!
