Default 5 3800'* and not even a meet

Last night a buddy stopped off to show me how his new sub sounded, I helped with part of the install. Around the same time Steve shows up with a Park Ave for me to peek at.

Just got to thinking, without planning a thing there were 5 3800'* sitting at my place.

My Regal, the turbo Regal, my Bonneville, Steve'* Park Avenue, Max'* Grand Prix. Toss in my truck as another GM and it'* six for six.

Max left and I'm sitting on four different 3800'*.

I think I have more dead transmissions laying around than most. And I've scrapped a lot.
