RIP Art Bell

Those of us who used to take long midnight drives in the 90s still have his voice baked into our being.

Not the worst Thai driving I’ve seen though.

Fiesta Door Mirror

So, between ~2030 last night and 0500 this morning someone managed to whack off my driver’s side mirror. Any of the Fiesta folk or FiSTers on here had to replace one of those yet?

What’s up with them this month? I usually get one or two a year, but so far I’m at 4 since 1NOV.
