Default A sad ending to a glorious career

well, just after i got all of the rust work done on the bonneville. i take it out for a few days, just getting back into the gist of things, and when i get home one night my buddy comments on how much valve noise ive got. so we take the valve covers off, to see if we can figure out whats rattling in there. no dice, we think its internal dh2 because its so bad, im not going to drive the car anymore, BUT i refuse to sell it. i love my sse, and will not see it sent off. im going to school for the next two years, thankfully enough for Automotive Mechanics, so im juts storing the sse until i have the full training to do an engine swap on her. Ill post pictures of the rust and small custom work i did later.

although this story isnt so sad. because of my loss, a guy i know sold me a 1983 Mercury Cougar LS, running, with a 302 in her for $300.ill see if i can post some pictures of that too.
