Just thought I'd drop you all a line to let you know how things are going.
First and foremost, the 97 is running great. Had to do some serious maintance when I got her back to NS. All the wires and belts under the hood were woren (I'd suspect they've never been changed). The spark plugs looked org too. So after a $1200 trip to my local mechanic she'* running a lot better. The SC seems to be pulling more boost now too,
It'* my new favorite gauge.
Neither the 91 or the 97 took damage during the hurricane a few weeks ago. They were just speckled with sheredded leaves and had to be washed. I did however have to drive home during the hurricane in the 97 (Juan was bigger then anyone expected). Interesting ride, espically across the MacKay (one of Halifax'* twin suspension bridges). Ever had your car pushed over a lane and a 1/2 sideways while doing 100kph... very interesting... hehe... it was kinda windy.
I did get re-ended two weeks ago while driving the 97.
I really got whacked, and figured my back end (at least my bumper and trunk) were gone, but when I got out I only noticed minor scratches. I decided to get it checked out anyways, and turns out there is about $700 worth of damage. (Repaint the bumper, shock absorbers, stryofoam etc). It'll be taken care of by the woman who hit me.
I also got my new plates for the 91 last week "91 SSE", I haven't put them on her yet. She'* in temp storage right now until I can decide/find a spot to put her for the winter. I've got to get her gas tank fixed/replaced probably before winter due to a very small leak in it.
I've just updated my sig and avatar to reflect the 97, something I should have done a month ago. I haven't been following the BC too closely lately, but I'm off today (woo-hoo) and I plan to do some serious catch up reading.
I'll see you all around....
