On a personal note, I don’t have any automotive-related New Year’s resolutions this time around. I will continually tinker with the Lunchbox but don’t have any ultimate goals. I have things I want to do, but may never get around to. I don’t have a list of vehicles I want to buy, because I have other things my money will be going towards in 2017. Though to rule out the possibility would be unwise.

Owning a Tercel is a lot like eating Maruchan Roast Beef-flavored Top Ramen voluntarily as an employed adult: It’s cheap. It’s familiar. It’s nostalgic. It’s disposable. It’s not healthy. You could do better, objectively. You’re not quite sure why you do these things to yourself.

Also, I’m excited to try this beer my wife got me.
