many thanks. There were very, VERY few of my car ever made, so it doesn't surprise me that the part isn't sold anymore. In the county, I have only ever run into two like mine: one bonnie that didn't have a vinyl top like mine did (in this ugly champaigne color with lots of rust, it'* a damn tragedy :() and a pretty blue Parisseine with LOTS of miles. Expecting the first pesos from the guy near the 15th of next month. ˇOlé!

Chevy 305 V8...I should NOT be allowed to play with that much power... I'd hate to think what I'd do with her if I had money...

hehe yup. Large engine, lotsa torque. Going to have to rotate the tires soon due to frequency of accidentally spinning out...

Like I said, I should not be allowed to play with that much power.

I will have her in Rockford next summer for the meet. haha maybe I'll consider letting Jim drive her. Prove his Rora less worthy...

I'm sure a modified 305 could make mincemeat of my mini-Northstar...

I'll just go sit in the corner al Little Jack Horner, and lick my wounds

Haha...I missed all kindsa fun this weekend. Can't afford to modify the engine. Two words: I WISH. I HATE being a broke college student. I once asked my best friend if she could imagine what my car would look like if I had time and money. She just laughed.

NE ways, need to check on the stats of my homework assignments for one of the classes that is making me broke. Later all.

Thank God. I can't afford to replace her, and I never plan to sell her. She was my Great Grandma'*. Besides, due to the age, she wouldn't trade for what she'* worth.
