Living closer to Bill would be like a 2 edged sword. Yup it would be great to help out and get tips on making more HP. On the other side I would be broke.

LOL


Thinking of you this morning Bill, I went to merge onto 295 north towards Baltimore and the guy in the right hand lane was coming up quick with the left hand lane blocked for him to pull over. I put the pedal to the metal and just took off. Merged in like a champ. It is always fun to attend NEBF!

Wait, you have another 3800 in the Bonneville? That was fast! Is it a winter beater or something of the sort?

The car has been sitting on the lawn for over two months waiting for me to bolt a down pipe onto it. The motor came out around June. Nothing fast for me there. I've been slowing down.

It'* girlfriend related, age isn't catching up yet. I'm playing catch up on some activities.

Funny thing though, the Bonne sits until I have time. Here'* the short list for this week.
Between now and Thurs night (when the GF arrives )
Finish turbo Regal coolant hose, oil change, top fluids etc.
Find issue with Park Ave electrical that causes the battery to drain. Currently it'* being checked every day and it'* not cooperating on having it'* problem.
Axle in my Regal, maybe wheel bearing too. That darn abs light is pissing me off on bumps.
Thurs night to Sat morning - GF time, aka relaxation.
Sunday - Two LIM gasket swaps, and one of the cars needs two new wheel bearings. Dunno what guy #2 will add onto his list. There'* always something.

Anyone see that downpipe happening?

Oh..between now and Thurs add in pulling the passenger seat, adding the seat heaters, wiring up a harness for the seat itself because I can't seem to locate the one I'm sure I had, adding two cigarette lighters to the center console (aka pull the console), mold in the Aeroforce, replace some resistors in the cluster.

That'* one night all by itself.

I did my downpipe in just a few hours! Bill, by that, the human body can't sneeze as fast as you replace H-body downpipes.
