Smog Ahoy

Third time's a charm: On my third attempt, I finally managed to make an appointment to take my minivan in for smog-related repairs on Wednesday. The first time I called, I got the answering machine and nobody called me back. The second time, the guy in the shop said the owner was at an auto mechanics' convention and I should try again on Monday. Today, the owner answered and said that Wednesday would be just fine.

I hope, since the van only failed one element (low speed NO emissions), and then not by very much, that the repairs won't be too complicated, and that I'll only be out the $100 co-payment on the Bureau of Automotive Repair program.
