I have two buckets of paint and a brush. I'm going to paint it black tomorrow. Will that stave off the jinx? or am I sentenced to suffer?

Congrats! Only 80k miles? Was it hidden in a barn or something? Owned by an Amish family? That is cool....

Nice BOONEville, Daniel. Ignore those weenies and their white curse claims. If my white bonneville wasn't totaled, I'd still be driving it.

Even a blind squirrel could accidentally drop an acorn on a white bonneville and cause a dent.

let'* put it this way.... the area I went into (right next to West Philly).... I really didn't expect to leave with everytihng I went in with. I'm sure this hurt selling the car, because he said people would call up really interested and make an appointment... then not show. i said "Oh, they drove by..." and we had a chuckle.

Thanks, I'm really excited. Everything I have learned over the past year is related to the L36, so everybody is going to be hearing (as in questions) from me. Heck, I had to spend 6 hours researching the 4T65E-HD trans, so I would know exactly how to check it out. BTW, are there any houses for rent in your neighborhood.

It'* good to be on this side, although I'm sure the others are fine, too. Oh, I know there'* a bullseye on me. The car doesn't even have a door dent. I'm going to take the car to local WallyWorld and park it all day Saturday. I figure that should be good for 3 or 4 door dents. Maybe the gods will take that as a sacrificial peace offering, and cut me some slack.... for a while.
