Default I got her back!

The manager of the shop, whom also worked on my car showed me all the parts that came out of that sucker. Heat warpage, roller clutch practically fell apart, 2nd gear clutch was done, 3rd was close, od was close. Reverse drum had some nice chuncks in it as well. He said "you have a ******* beautiful car, it was a pleasure to test drive it" He said he showed the guy that owned the other 1993 SSEi that was there at the shop my car, and said, look, now that has been taken care of, this other guys car i guess has gone through a couple SCs, has a non operational dash, that kinda thing, basically has almost been let go. I gave him half of the payment, and on OCT 7 he will get the other half, was quite pleased that I got my car in the mean time.
Also, OD is now very noticable
Vids to come?

Way to go, Matt!

So, does this mean the Alero gets a rest?

Blue tranny? stands out a LOT. Was that necessary or did you get to pick the color?
