This was especially poignant because I saw one of my dream cars, a Mitsubishi 3000GT at a car show today.

I love Big Car’s videos on automotive history. This one on Mitsubishi Motors was interesting.

I remember a while back reading about SPM adding rudimentary support for defining an iOS app using a Package.swift file. I’m having trouble Googling for info about it though. Does anyone know where I could find more info on that?

Unfortunately, bleeding the brake system did not fix the issue I had. 😞 Regardless, it was a satisfying project. And it forced me to remove the hub caps, which is how I'm going to leave it for now because it looks way cooler that way.

First two brakes have been bled! Here’s what the fluid looks like. It’s supposed to be clear. 🙃

First wheel off! This is the first time I’ve ever taken the wheel off of a car. (Did I mention I’m a complete newbie at this?)
