I haven't worked on my Datsun 510 in a while. It's sitting in my garage with the Z/L-hybrid engine sitting in front of it, waiting to have a new clutch and pressure plate assembly installed.

I can't help but think that there's something keeping me from working on my car. And I don't mean my commitment to my family... I mean something internal. It's like... I have this weird phobia about finishing the project.

I dunno. I get a huge rush whenever I finish small projects. I like the feeling of accomplishment I get whenever I stand back and look at the thing I've created or fixed. This car project... it's different. It's like, I'm afraid that if I finish, I might be disappointed in the final project.

I'm sorry if I haven't encouraged you enough to go out there and work on it. Maybe this weekend?

Maybe. I've got to run to the auto store and pick up those parts, though. I can't push ahead until I get those parts in.

Is the auto store open after you get home from work... because you can go anytime this week and have them by Saturday.

Yeah, they're probably open... but if they have to special order the part, it might not make it in by the weekend. We can find out, though. No sense in not trying.
