Default She'* BIG, she'* brown, she'* BACK!!!

My fiance owns three vehicles, I own two. All three of his are dead right now, meaning I pulled the Bonneville back out of storage a little sooner than expected! I think I offended my fiance. I got all excited and said something about my baby being back...I never call HIM that... I always assumed that wasn't something you call men...

Turns out that the major problem with it could be as simple as a vacuum line. I $10 repairs.

Mods are planned for late this summer, more extensive than previously planned! Should bring my gas mileage above 13.5 mpg...
