Default Surprise Visit

The great thing about being a BC member, is that you never know who or when someone will call, PM, text, or simply drop by on any given day of the week.

Well, it made it home just fine. Never went over 55 the whole way and took it easy. The car took it like a champ. The engine never moved the entire trip.

And the ELC was working... Just couldn't keep up. Since it was too late to remove the motor when I got back, I pulled the battery so the ELC would not drain or burn out over night. The car is going to sit like this til tomorrow night when I can get a chance to get it out of there.

That'* a 71 Buick 350 with only 80k on it and a 71 Buick TH350 with only 60 k. Both in good working order when pulled. Now to find a 71 Buick...

It'* easy.. look at the cladding and you simply need to know which of the 5 sets of rims it'* wearing recently.

I swear..this car has more sneakers than most guys.
