Time to check/winterize Sammy the Volga and what happened to the model?

So today I go to the Big Village and gather antifreeze, oil filter, oil, new fan temp switch and some other goodies to winterize Sammy. Sammy the Volga has to survive through up to -40 C winters and that means maintenance is vital. Though, I have to say, when it gets that cold, I do not attempt to start her (much less start myself). Just not worth it…

Looks like we will get a break from all the rain, so time to get things done…

Sammy The Volga Model is done and working out the shipping issues…

Things that ship from the USA almost always end up a real hassle…

75 days and last known was Nairobi, Kenya? No idea why the US sent it to Kenya in the first place when in the past anything shipped from the US has gone into Europe proper, not Africa to get to Russia…

Departed. Your item departed a transfer airport in JOMO KENYATTA INTL, NAIROBI, KENYA on July 24, 2021 at 2:15 pm. The item is currently in transit to the destination. NAIROBI, KENYA

Maybe the model had to drive itself the rest of the way? Or someone really liked it and stole it? Or it has been smashed flat as a pancake and paves a road somewhere? Or…

At least we have images of her!

That damn Postal Monster better stay away from Sammy…

Where oh where is our package?
