Default Black Betty breaks a bracket!

I guess the constant G forces over 27 years of abuse finally took its toll on the right front sway bar bracket and it broke yesterday on the way home rounding a bend at super sonic speed.

Insurance runs out on it tomorrow.

So I changed the bracket and did an oil / filter change ........ and left it up on the blocks tonight.

I still get to drive the Bonne and my other Firebird so it'* not all bad.

We're into that rain for a day dry the next type of weather now but by the end of October the roads will rarely dry out until February. :(
