Hey, you'll be driving back right through my neck of the woods (only 1.5 hrs from utica on Rt 90) if you feel like stopping in for dinner or something, I could probably con Rob (CorvetteCrazy) into coming too. I PMed you my number. We are off Exit 46 of Rt 90

well im back hehe, i left before i could get a chance to read the responses in dis thread, damn i missed free food grrrrrrrr.

ah well the cars parked in the driveway now, and fyi ford boy they sold it with a quarter tank i ended up talkin him down to $1800 for it out the door because the transmission is slam shifting in every gear, i dunno wth is wrong with it but i suspect its the fluid because twice right after i filled it up and started it, it behaved as i got back on i-90, all the shifts were perfect. god damn that car has too much power for its own good (i know this because on the 1-2 slam shift it screeches the tires), i know im gonna get myself in trouble with it other than the trans issue, everything is in very good condition, engine runs perfect, starts up on the first crank, steerings tight, suspensions good, all the power options work weeeeee!!!!
