while working on several different club members cars and posting about our progress, i get a message from "Soupy" and he says, while you are doing all this work on 4th gen TA's, why dont you help me get a motor for mine. It is shot! About 6 weeks later, i send him a message, What have you done with your 94? Long story short, 2 weeks later we are in Florida loading the Red Rocket up to take home. Only an 950 mile trip down here, but then i also get to se my 83 year old Grandma, and parents for a bit of a visit and also get to participate in the Jupiter Bash portion of the Bnadit Run 2010. Great timing.

As my luck usually doesnt happen this way, i feel pretty fortunate to be able to say that another member of Motortopia was able to help me locate a motor that we will put in the Red Rocket for a temporary fix while we LT4 the original motor. Thanks Mike and Marcia, and Soupy and Frog. See you guys in Jupiter!
