Brickhouse Products has a new home as of July 4th 2012. From now on, we will be coming to you from Okinawa, Japan and now Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Moving was a task but there was a cherry on top of it all. I would get to spend some quality time in the driver’s seat of Minty.
I have neglected my poor auto for the past few months to render my home livable and salable. I was particularly interested to see how Minty would do hauling a fair amount of stuff, see how my knuckles would fair (see future posts!), and see if cooling would be and issue with the new e-fans.
Minty was able to chirp the tires even fully loaded and with only 10psi (normal is 15psi). I will say the exhaust would have liked to melt a hole in my foot but, other than that and a lack of a/c, the trip from Lincoln, NE, to Bartlesville, OK, was no frills.
The e-fans worked amazing with the temperature only rising from 180 to 186 when the heat really started to increase.
As for the knuckles, I will be getting under the car in the next day or two to inspect for any failures in structure. Though the steering effort required was increased, it was not to a point that I cared. Like mentioned above, more on the knuckles later!
Lincoln has been good to us, but here’s to what’s next in Bartlesville!
Until next time.
