The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Two Infinitis—and beyond!

I used to toss up a hand signal every time I saw a Mazda 626, to acknowledge our shared destiny as the few, the proud, the unrecognized, or some such silliness. Going from a relatively-unknown marque to a really-unknown marque has pretty much spelled the end of that activity.

Then I followed a Q45 into Nichols Hills today, and when we came to a four-way stop, the Q turned away, and there followed a sight I've never before seen: three other Infinitis were waiting their turn. Of course, this being Oklahoma, they were trucks: two QX4s and a QX56.

Also, if anyone cares, at least one 7-Eleven store (in the Village) is vending 87-octane unleaded for a comparatively-paltry $2.479, as of 6 pm today.

I'm not going to say anything about local gas prices in Coweta County, Georgia. When I do that, prices go up.

Meanwhile other stations all across town are falling into the $2.30's :) Encouraging to say the least.

I snagged some premium (91) at the Murphy's at Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market, NW 164th and Western, for the staggeringly low price (compared to most of this summer) of $2.579.
