Default Whelp, I sold the eclipse...

Well, I managed to get the idle working ok by adjusting the screw. Not a good fix, but a fix nonetheless. Car ran good after and only bogged a little with the AC on.

Well, in the process, I had listed it on craigslist for $800. A lady came today to look at it while I was at lunch, knocked on the door and handed my roommate $800 cash. I had him give her all the paper work and she left a happy camper to register it. She'* coming to get it later tonight or this weekend.

And i am leaving now to look at something much better than the eclipse and more to everyone here'* liking...

oh, and BOOOOOOST!

Not sure what he'* got under his sleeve...

He'* been getting all excited around Volvo'* lately..

He'* driven the S2 SC'* and likes them......

That'* the problem with Geoff..... he'* all over the spectrum..

Someone check Craigslist in his area for anything with a turbo or supercharger.

nope, not a bonneville but it is a pontiac. Got it sitting in the driveway right now. Need to get some pictures. It'* no looker yet, and still need to replace the block (found one 20 min from here) and might swap it to 5 spd while I am at it seeing as the parts car i found is 5spd. We'll see what the money looks like.

Drove the car half way home blowing smoke and knocking like an SOB before it finally gave out and I towed it home.
