Default Got a beveage, sitting in a chair... I'm new here

Hi You'll,

I've been checking out your site (this forum) for a few weeks now and I have to say I'm impressed with the selfless contributions and knowledge of so many of the participants - thank you!

My name "Motozappa" that goes back some years when I was researching two-wheeled walk-behind tractors and incidentally the BCS brand, straight out of Italy and a division of Ferrari... you don't see much of them in The States, but they're around, have been and will be for a long long time, cause they are built right and like bulldogs. Attachments galore and they're super versatile - look 'em up sometime, like here in America: Home // BCS America or in English from their Italian site: BCS GROUP - duh, click BCS

Anyway and I digress, thing is my username: Motozappa, is Italian for Rototiller, as I discovered many moons ago. Since I'm a gardener, quite the motorhead and into Frank Zappa, the gasket fit, so I'm sticking with it like Permatex

Thanks for having me here & here'* to hoping I can help out others!

Really,
Dan

That is probably the most unique username I have ever heard of.

Again, welcome to the forum Dan!

Thanks Mike and Justin for welcoming me! Yeah, I took care of my signature. Sorry, I thought when I registered it would add my vehicle info to the left of my posts - guess not.

that would be cool, but i dont know if its possible. my inlaws just bought a rust free 2000 (crazy for here) lesabre custom. i think its got under 60k on it too. and talked the guy down to 16 or 1700. cant believe he got it for that. i just had to replace the regulators in the back, mess with a shield they had touching the brake rotor, and the a/c compressor clutch is messed up but i think he is going to wait till spring on that.

Cool story Justin, I'll offer you $2,000 cash for the 2000... it will probably save me lots of flow then trying to fix my beast
