Yep, this evening I helped (ok, mainly put tranny fluid in, turned the key, handed a few tools, held the 3" exhaust in place while it was welded, and other little things) bring my 99 SSEi to life.
It has been a long wait, but seeing it going down the road full throttle, roasting them through first and into second, then kicking it down at 35 mph and hearing them roast again..... MUSIC.... did somebody put my favorite song on......"I love to hear my baby whine!"
Anyhow, the car is going to the body shop for core support straightening and coolers installation and she should be road worthy by Christmas..... that'* my Christmas wish.
So the car is now moveable under her own power and should really be a fun ride when I get it back. The mechanic only took the car on a 500' (each way) trip as there is no coolant and he had to get the engine warm for the CASE Learn, but wasn't able to complete it as the Coolant temp sensor was not reading correct (needs to read at least 7* C and it was reading -38* the whole time).
