            Nothing today, but last weekend I put a radio in the Firebird and modified the shift kit in the trans a bit more. Then drove the Skylark around town a bit.
            Escaped on a technicality.

              Uncovered the Monte, went over a couple things, tightened the header bolts, etc. I finished up an engine swap at the beginning of winter, the test drive at that point was cut short as I passed a truck salting the roads. Went for a drive today and found out there's an oil leak or two to attend to. That's tomorrow's project.

                Yes, I'm a CarJunkie... How many times would YOU rebuild the same engine before getting a crate motor?

                  On the Mustang, replaced the headlight units, the old ones were fogged over and I was having trouble seeing at night. Also new wipers and put the registration sticker on the license plate. On the truck I plugged in the new fuel pump, turned the key, and discovered I probably have to chase down a wiring problem.

                      wow. someone drives one..
                      I did the wash chore today as well.

                      it is rewarding now, it used to be "leave the crap on it, I do not know what failed" to..

                      "this is ten times tougher than it has never been.."

                      I do not mind washing today. You know those squishy years of young cars, a broken grille could move the radiator stucture or off align a headlamp, as if the plastic is as tough as the damn sheet metal.. all kinds of dumbass things to survive.

                      today I got one sailing through the sandy highway at 90mph , cracked right down the middle.. 360k miles, 3 subes and 27 years gone by.

                      Steel surroundings owns it all.

                      there is a win, does not matter the car. Some are worth a winter ride and a wash job.

                        Ordered a bump steer kit. Now if I can find the missing caliper for the spindles that got lost in the move

                        Overdrive is overrated

                          I broke into the locked glove box and replaced the lock. Believe it or not it's easier to steal the car.

                          "EDIT" also ordered some door panels & carpet

                              I left a Firebird catalog sitting on the table today and I caught my wife flipping through it.
