      Time to 'fess up.

      Remember the RX7 rotary powered Model T that McSquatch posted about on the front page? well there is more to the story - it's even funny.

      So I saw that Model T and it had no pictures - so I asked, and got, eventually, pictures of the motor in this Model T. The guy wanted 5k for it (I really should have bought it, but since I really don't want to divorce, what is past is good). I told the seller I had mentioned this to a friend and he blogged about it - he said "cool".... that was Thursday. Sunday, I met the guy at a swap meet. He told me he'd be in the Model T booth - so I went and asked for him, I told him I was the guy who got him published about his car.... oh the look I got, thankfully my lawyerprotection kicked in so it bounced off - then we had a great conversation about the car, him and why he did that insanity. He told me in the conversation that he got 200 calls and who knows how many emails after McSquatch's article hit... I told him it was way too cheap, he told me it was no longer for sale. Apparently in all of this, he fell in love with his car again - which is cool because he sounded very interested about doing PowerTour in it this year. I hope so - I told him that was my plan because it would be the most awesome conversation piece ever... who knows, I may yet end up with it - though doubtful at the price he had it at before. Ah well.

      I'm still pretty sure he had no idea what even a small comment about his car on the WWW would do - certainly he does now, but I still chuckle at the face I got when he realized who I was.... I figure in April-ish I'll go see the car in person... pictures to follow.

So the tally is one $170 tow , three hubs , two transmissions , one transfer case , two micky Thompsons at 550 and needing two more .
        The other prospect is a roadmaster wagon . I had a 94 caprice wagon with the LT1 and I'd like leather this time .
        Suburban, you say? Tell me more.
        I'm probably wrong

            So do you watch? get the popcorn? give them advice? to what result?
            I'm already in over my head. Own 13 cars right now and might be going off the deep end with one of them? Will know more after the weekend about my direction with this 62 Lemans I just bought again. Click image for larger version
