Greg pulled out of the Villa about 6am this morning on his way northward. Great to see you again.

The weekend started out as usual with cars being worked on. Pretty soon I figure all the locals and myself won't have anything left to do except drink beer. Pete TFC did his intake gaskets, TB cleaning, coolant flush etc etc. Badnit changed a coupler, SC gasket and TB cleaning. Greg arrived and took it easy Saturday evening while helping reduce the number of beers and enjoying a little campfire.

Sunday was another productive day, as you can see SC oil, coolant flush, another trans service, oil change, engine cleaning, trunk latch, and we finished things off this morning with a 7 band CD player (it was on the coffee table ) for the trip home. It was nice to have two black cars sleeping in the garage side by side.

it was a pleasure to have the guys over and Greg in town. Badnit.. I hope Max didn't keep you awake too much .

I can't wait to see this car in Michigan. Will prove that I shouldn't have passed up on it!

sounds like he had a good time. Probably the only time in the car'* life that it will need 3 oil changes within 2 weeks...

Can't want to see greg and the car at letchworth this week.

Its real strange seeing yall doing stuff to a car that used to be in my garage.
What did you think of it overall. Did I put it straight about how it was?

Where'* the 10 disc changer from your sig?

James..everything I saw on the car was in great shape. There was a bit of Texas dust that needs to be scrubbed from under the hood, overall..the car is awesome. It drives great, runs great and appeared to be ready for another million miles.

The cd changer crapped out. I told him that up front. At least Im pretty sure I did. Yes I did. Ya know. I knew that car was in good shape. It had it'* little things but it was SOLID. I just couldnt afford the maintenece and up keep of three cars while going to school. Funny thing is I tale my state boards on Thursday. After that Ill be working again, full time and be back in some money.
I need to find a project for my son and me to work on. So if anyone see'* one down here let me know.

That supercharger oil was nasty!! Did he put the new plug wires on? And what about those tires. I told him to be careful in the rain...
