I feel like I should make a quick update to my list of cars I've drove.

- I traveled to a nearby city during christmas, and I got there driving the 15' Renault Sandero 1.6 from the previous journal. The car was fully loaded, but fared well on the road. On city streets, it feels comfortable. Heh, quite more comfortable than my current car.

- Talking about my current car, I went down south during the New Years' Eve. It's 750kms to go, and another 750kms to come back. Air-conditioning wasn't working during the first part of the trip. It wouldn't bother me that much I don't use the a/c much, but it's been awfuly hot, hot like hell here in Brazil. It was tiresome, me and my girlfriend were almost boiled inside the car, even with the open windows. As soon as I arrived in the south, I found a place to get the air-conditioning fixed.
When it was ready, my father got the car to test. When he arrived, I hear from him "(..) the accessory belt snapped right after I left the repair shop". "It didn't damage the engine, and they'll fix what went wrong." he told me.
I was worried to hear such news, but the engine wasn't hurt, so I tried to keep calm.
The day after, the car was with me, working properly, and the air-conditioning was back.
2014-2015 parties, yep, yep.
The day before the travel to come back home, we noticed the Gol was leaking something, somewhere.
Problem: a crack in the windshield washer tank. 

When I arrived home, a new tank was bought and installed.
Some days after that, I washed the car.
When I was done with cleaning it, the engine decided not to start.
The starter was working, but the engine insisted on not starting. It decided to backfire, and the exhuast made banging noises. POW - POW loudly. 
I tried to find out what was wrong. I decided to wait for the next day, maybe the problem would vanish by itself.
Nope. In the next morning, the Gol was backfiring, and the engine wouldn't start.
I called my mechanic and asked for help.
It didn't work.
After hours trying to start the car, I gave up.
For the first time in my life, I was calling for a tow truck. 

Diagostic: wet fuel distributors and another wet parts.
They were removed and dried. The car was back to life.
...but the windows now don't go up when the alarm is activated.
And the hodometer decided to go back almost 6.000kms on its own. It's a recurring problem this. 


Some may notice there's an addition to my list, a 2015 Toyota Etios X 1.3. I'll talk about it, and maybe talk about another possible addition to the list, in the next journal.

-----UPDATE, JANUARY 26th 2015-------

April Showers by broettonavarro
April Showers
1971 Datsun 240Z, made by Maisto.
1:18 scale.


This 240Z was bought in October 2014, during a trip to Brasília.
The brown steering wheel is a nice detail.

SONIC by broettonavarro
SONIC
Sonic the Hedgehog, holding one of the four rechargeable batteries that came with my camera.

My Kodak Z981 was bought in October 2010. As of this picture (December 2014), that Kodak battery worked for 4 years.
In the past weeks, I've noticed the batteries are dying. They barely recharge.
When I bought my camera, I was expecting to face such problem after some years.
That's why I wanted a camera that used AA batteries, because such batteries are very easy to be replaced.

Now the camera is running on rechargeable Sony batteries.


On a side note, the background is a nod to Sega Master System's cartridge boxes.
