Default Your not gonna believe...

what I have sitting in my driveway.

My buddy pops over and we are shootin the **** checking out Craigslist and we find an ad for a 1994 Buick Park Ave. $300. So we go over, check it out, it doesn't run, but it will run with some ether. I'm looking under the hood and am shittin bricks. Super Charged. My buddy looks it over, I tell him it'* either the fuel pump, or ground bus. Considering he use to be a GM certified mechanic, he seals the deal and we come back with his truck and trailer and drop it off in my driveway so we can work on it.

Come to find out, its a 1996 Ultra. I'm practically beatin the **** out of him because he know'* what I am looking for.

That'* okay, I told him we are going to the junkyard sooner or later and he'* gonna help me pull engines and trannies.

Dude, it'* 10degrees outside, it took us about 2 1/2 hours to seal the deal, get it on the trailer and get home. Only thing we did do was check the ground bus(clean btw), checked the fuse and called it a night. Tommorrow we are gonna jack the *** end up, and check for power at the harness. After that, it'* drop the tank.

Don't you just love people that think they know what they are talking about, but really don't.
