    Sorry to hear the troubles, get it fixed and meet where you can and stay as long as you can. If nothing else just come along, we have open seats. At least you'll be happy to know the meteor isn't falling from the sky this week, NASA says it is a few years away eek image

     

    Any day above ground is a GOOD day!!!

    a load of chumbucks later, the original trans case has new internals and torque converter,bolt it in on friday am, also theres a fellow runner here in kennesaw driving a sweet silver 4th gen with (I think ) with polished torque thrust type rims.???(didnt see him or her)..and across from that was a blk /gold 77 T/A thats was being sent to volo auto museum, and had Burt "bandit" Reynolds signature on the hood....anyone here of this car?had no way to photo it, not even by cell....anyway, rebuilt trans has a 400 converter, with HD clutches, gentleman that built it said it took the heavy duty rebuild kit,so it was a little more, but at least the powertrain is fresh, now all it has to do it get around the sunshine state, get me home that it can do whatever it likes............see ya'll early Sunday morning at Year One, biggrin image .....
