Today was the day the junkman came to take her away.
Got damn near everything I could off of it...several members already got some parts, more parts awaiting shipment. Biggest parts are now in my backyard under a tarp, and the engine/trans/subframe are tucked away in the garage.
Engine is still impressively clean...though I detected a hint of glitter in the oil. So now it doesn't appear it popped a piston at all...perhaps the bearings were a bit on the soft side...won't know the answer until I do the autopsy.
So...here was what was left of it...pretty sad, but relieving at the same time.

And on the trailer
So what now? Grand Prix is now in the garage, Malibu in the driveway, and the SSE is alongside the house. I got some issues to fix on the SSE, so it looks like it won't be on the market for a while...
A moment of silence please for Jinx...I guess to some she was an icon on the forum. To me...she was my couch therapy for a while. When she became the REASON for my couch therapy, it was time to go.
Welcome, downwardly mobile yuppies, to the dawn of the Age of Nefarious.
