Well it'* officially gone now



I was sad to see it go.

Rocky showed up with his two black hoodied, black ball capped Homies in a red Honda Accord.

Complained a little about the lifter clacking and also pointed out some previous body filler that was probably used to repair a fender bender 15 years ago......ended up parting with my Black Betty for $4,500...........and yes, he ended up bringing cash, but I had my banker wife inspect it all and made hime exhange 3 of the bills that looked suspect.

Victor got 22 of those $100 bills to buy himself a replacement.
So far it'* between a $1,200. Jeep Cherokee or a $1,700 SSEi.

His brother has a body shop and he wants to make it glossy black and put some chome wheels on it. Will send me pics when done with it.

I sure hope the clacking noise was not a rod bearing or wrist pin and it is as simple as a colapsed lifter. Had a bad miss also above 3000 rpm.

Bad miss above 3k would point to a lifter over the other possibilities.

Think of it as simplifying your life a little.

The Jeep Cherokee is nice, atleast the one I had for a few months. But he'* gotta go with the SSEi. ut either way there they're nice vehicles.
