YUCK! We never know what we will find when we raise the hood of a car. This time is was a mouse nest, and all the "decorations" that come with that....... Honestly, it is not that uncommon to find this, especially in cars that sit for a long time. Beyond the gross factor, they can do a lot of damage too, eating through plastic parts and wires covers. Keep it in mind if you store your car outside.

Knowing Kevin is as big a fan of this car as I am, and that it was developed with the help of a relative (distant, I'm guessing), I wanted to share this post with my favorite auto shop. Happy Birthday to Norman Dewis of Jaguar!
