Oil Change video

Builders,

Kitti Politi and I shot a new video on oil change information today, and evidently I got the coffee/sleep ratio pretty close, because it looks pretty good, I hit it in one take, and I did it straight off the top of my head with no script.  Kitty, who is relatively new to the team, had not previously seen my idiot-savant capability to transform into the caffeine fueled ‘abominable showman’, a performance honed over thirty years working on Corvairs and giving more than 600 public forums on the topic.  She thought this was pretty cool. As long as the Coffee/air ratio stays right at 12:1, we will have many more videos to come.

.

Kitty  emailed it to Ken Pavlou in Connecticut, and Volia! just like magic, Ken makes a professional video appear on my Youtube page an hour later. Use the link below, and look under the “Operations” playlist:
