He was joking. Kim'* driven 3 Bonnevilles in the last 2 years, and not a scratch on any of them.

We DID get alot done. More than was on his list. And all either fixed, or firmly diagnosed. Nothing left in question.

I drove his car for the first time (this trip) yesterday, and my first throttle romp was "Uh-Oh!" Broken motorm mount. I could feel it thump. It failed so gradually, John didn't even really notice it, or didn't realize when it finally failed.

Front trans mount is entirely seperated, main TA motor mount MAY be getting tired.
