The wires were still in the trunk in their Duralast box and I wasn't going to disturb them. They are on my "what not to use" list.

On the changer..I was joking.. we did swap out the cassette deck for a factory CD HU. Dunno on the tires, didn't really look at them.

The Sc oil wasn't as bad as I've seen/smelled. It'* cleaner now and will be cleaner the next change.

As for careful in the rain...he spun about halfway down the road.. which was odd for Greg. He'* the youngest blue haired person I know.

What did you think of it overall. Did I put it straight about how it was?
I Love it, James I really mean it!! I rode very nice, and passing was NEVER a problem

Boost fixed the trunk latch and hooked me up with a 7 band CD player, and I was able to get the power antenna to fully raise.

The plug wires were not a concern because the car will be sitting for the next few months. When I do run her again, I will put them on, along with some new plugs.

The got averaged ~30 MPG, running ~70 mph.

Boost, with the 10 disc, it had broke some time ago. James said something about plastic pieces falling out of it

James, Boost, Bandit, Pete and Carl, thank again for everything. It'* been one fun vacation I almost wanna do it again!
