Those who are going to Carlisle, have a good time.  I'm hoping to get to
Tanglewood in North Carolina, but there's a really cool, high speed
(kind of a "Solo 1.5) autocross that  weekend.  We'll see.

Anyhow, my B has developed rather an odd behavior.  Two weeks ago I
drove it on about a 200 mile round trip to watch an autocross (the
Integra was on blocks).  On the way home, the car started to kind of
miss.  Very know the sounds in old WWII movies of
airplane engines crapping out?  You get this (the spaces are silence...)

baaaaaaaahhhhhhhh    aaahhhh   aaaaaaahhhhhhhh   aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh

And then it would go away for another thirty miles.  It felt loke
someone was in there pulling the wire off the coil occasionally.  It has
no pattern - not related to ambient temperature, engine speed, or

And it's getting worse...I actually don't want to drive the car any
distance at this point, for fear of a long walk home.  Any ideas?  I'm
thinking it could be either fuel delivery or ignition (or both?), but
without a pattern, it's hard to reproduce when the car is parked.

I'd love to get any feedback on this, I'm quite perplexed.
