Meet My New "Go To" Smog Guy

My Peggy loves her 2002 Dodge Intrepid. She takes care of it, it looks good, everything works, and it drives well. For about a year we knew we were going to have to put new catalytic converters on it before it would pass smog. My first estimate was close to $2,500. I put it off as long as I could. I started on this "fixing adventure" more than a month ago. After countless phone calls and visits I settled on Eric D. Zugnoni at the NAPA AUTO CARE in Antioch. He took the time to explain things to me in a way that I understood. He wrote things down for me in writing and did what he said he would do. I like him. His phone number is (925) 757-7274. Here is the website.

Who Needs Tree Trimming or Garbage Hauling?

New & Archive Photos



I'm up in Dayton NV this week to see my older than me friend, by seven months, Les Wilcox. We graduated together from Antioch High School in 1969. Tomorrow, if I don't chicken out, we will be playing this golf course. I haven't swung a golf club in 10 years. I have no illusions. I'm expecting a bad day, probably a new personal high. My mindset is I'm dusting off my golf clubs and tennis racket for the exercise.
