It’s Sort of Cold Today

Like a lot of the country right now, we got hit with that “Polar Vortex” nonsense and temperatures have plunged well under freezing. I saw a number of other 240 owners trying a cold start in such low temperatures, so I figured I’d try it too. Then this happened.

I learned a lesson: when old metal gets really cold it becomes very, very brittle.

Also the car did not start, but I sort of expected that.
