Just get up off of your lazy, whiney *** and get to work. Now, move it, move it, move it!!!

(If nagging doesn't work...maybe the drill sergeant routine will. )

Well another option is selling the 90 SSE so only the 95 SSEi gets the attention and buy an '00 with low mileage.
It might be your time to upgrade to a newer model that needs less repairs......that way you can concentrate on mods.
...they won't live forever if you don't work on them. Get up and get movin.

If you rest.....you die.


If you really want motivation, visit your local Pontiac dealer and check out the prices on new vehicles.

Isn't $50,000 enough to motivate you.

There'* always Automotive strength Viagra.

Heres what i do..
I dont set a date for anything, i come home from work..get bored, get out my trouble light, and work on the car, fix one thing at a time..i do my best work on the car after work into the night for some reason...then you can stand back and think..job well done..and you will not only feel motivated but inspired to move onto the next thing, thusly leading to a successfull repair..
I just go buy the parts, look at them for a while, then get to it..

H*** no.

I'll say it again, My A$$ or work?

I'm still trying to figure that one out.

I'll take some load off and you can send me the SSEi and the 'Vette.


Be here by 8:00 am today and there yours.


Just get up off of your lazy, whiney A$$ and get to work. Now, move it, move it, move it!!!


Like I've haven't heard that one before, you're going to have to try harder than that.



You. Me. Let'* get modding. Lemme know when you're free!



There not mods, I'm just trying to get them either back on the road or just plain repairs. You'll be over on the 16th, you can see what I have to deal with.

Believe it or not, the 90 SSE really doesn't have any list of things to do. Whenever something doesn't work on it, I just disconnect it. As Boosty has said "You are spread thin Frankiestein" so I'm not buying another vehicle. Mods at this point is the furthest from my mind, the priority is to get them all fixed up. I already checked out pricing on newer vehicles, that'* why I purchased the 95 Bonne. $50,000, did I win a lottery or something.


Heres what i do..

I haven't been bored since I was around 14 years old. I understand the concept of do one repair at a time and prioritize, but when it comes down to actually doing it, it just doesn't happen anymore.
I already have most of the parts, and have been looking at them for over a year, I just can't get to it.


Oh I got it! For each thing on the list you complete before ONBF, I could flash you! ....oh wait...it'* not Halloween yet....never mind



Is that all it'* going to take Tracy, Now we’re talk’ in. I need more specifics. Tell me more. As for Halloween, hell that'* only several weeks away. Oh wait, you said before OBNF, not you're giving me some pressure. Let me get back to you. PM'* on there way...............


Thanks for all your suggestion everyone, please keep them coming.
