    Settle down, give it time, soon, very soon. I'm sure you're itching to drive her, I know I would be.

    A minute ago I was on the phone with Brother Bryan and asked him how far I had to bust $2K because I had money to spend.

    Let's :grd:

    He doesn't want more.

    o_O

    .....

    Remember the last time you met a mechanic that had a 40 year old truck and he didn't need any more money?



    :blah:

    I better start gettin ready.

    As in, she is done, and you are paid up ?:D

    Or, as in GTFO - I have as much free advertising from your rig as I need ...

    Yes. Kind of.
    Agreed stopping point on the to-do list at $2,000 labor
    $1,000 parts
    Needs another GRAND easy, at this rate.

    I believe a very straight 50/50 mix is the reality of that situation.
    Dude seems convinced that i'm going to drive her home.

    Uhhh...seriously? Fack.

    The Wuhan plays a part certainly...

    Floorboards not fixed.
    Replacement gas tank is in MY garage.
    No bumpers?
    Among other tasks what need completed..i'm just a guy trying to give money away, I don't think it's US.

    Guess I get to start working on it ASAP !

    I think the douchebag with the '75 soured the milk. :(
    Bryan dont ever talk about the door he made, bet that was the straw. I dont ask.

    You're still watching, right?
    I know, it's going very slow and that aint cool at all.

    Gonna happen. :waytogo:

    I'm starting to think I want a 125 horse POWERSHOT kit but I bet the trans will lunch. 13s are too far away at this point, need more power.

    I'm always talkin shit about NITRO, guess i'll do it and show you guys how since nobody does.

    Nope, still havent driven it yet haahahahah, just sayin..13.99 is out of reach as-is.
    I'll find $500 for some NOS. ;)

    Thinkin this is Babe's "Destiny".
