    I went to a ball game at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter and won a free oil change in a raffle. Luckily, after explaining that my car doesn't have oil, they let me exchange it for a dozen Bagels.

    That's some expensive bagels there! I hope they were worth it.

    LOL! I wonder what would happen if you won a year's supply of gasoline...

    Great story - symbolic of how yesterday meets today. We are part of an important change in everyday life. Small but significant.

    I would have showed up for the oil change and watched the hilarity.

    Let's head to NJ for a road trip - drive up to the full service gas station (what's that?), and see the attendant try to find out where to fill the tank!

    Anyway a friend of mine did this with an EV conversion a few years back in Western MA and got a real kick out of the attendant's reaction!

    I've been wanting to show up at an oil change shop, pop the frunk and have somebody jump out to enthusiastically greet the unsuspecting mechanic!
