Default Could it get any worse..

..well apparently yes. Hello everyone. I'm checking in again with another update from a place I like to call hell. As many know I recently had a new motor put in my Bonne. It never ran right, and spun another bearing after 822 miles. The warranty company said it was the installers fault, he of course said no it wasn't, jerked me around a bit blah,blah,blah
Anyway I got the worst news today. About the time he got the formal demand for money from me, he shut his doors and is now declaring bankruptcy. This pretty much means getting anything out of this guy will be like squeezing water out of a rock I'm just blow away about the whole thing at this point. I've decided I'm going to sell my Conquest which I've been working on for a few years in order to get the Bonne up. It'* that important to me and my family now being I have surgery on my foot coming up soon and HAVE to have an auto. I'll be around alot more in the very near future, after I get this all settled. Thanks for hearing me out everyone...

Sounds like a very near parallel to DrJay'* trials. Sorry to hear it came out this way. I know what your Conquest means to you.....that'* quite a sacrifice to make. I think in the long run, all 4 (5 including the big dog) will be pretty happy with the SSEi. Keep us posted, neighbor!

I just have to do whats right by my family. I have love for both cars, The conquest was just kind of like "my first". I learned everything I could about cars and forced induction because of it. My knowledge grew as the car did. I though I'd never have to part with it but fate had something else in mind I guess.

Why do the series 1 owners always get the shaft? I want to see a series 1 hit 400hp, but it seems whenever someone tries something goes wrong (Dr. Jay) for example.
