    Look for the guy running the white Malibu- big G or something like that. I was told that he is a transmission expert

    Thanks. I changed it out and it seemed to help out here on the road (street tires). Will find out tomorrow with the slicks. Should have stuck a manual valve body in it like I wanted to. But that old money problem keeps me from a lot of wants. Did have a blast today.

Running a th400 with 2600 converter. just pulled the pan and found nothing unusual. got a new modulator to change but was wondering if anyone had any ideas. It ran great down the highway. Am considering going anyway even if I only run a sudo power glide in a 400 skin.

    New plan for me is to take the Lightning, but I won't make the whole journey. We'll show up tomorrow about 6p, hopefully get to meet lots of folks, run down to Ennis and watch there, and come back to Denton to finish the car while I'm on vacation. I'll hopefully have it legal by Friday and be back to Tulsa with the Mustang which I can't even begine to describe how big of a win that is for me.

    I'm sending as much positive energy as I can to everyone who's tying up loose ends today and for everyone travelling - I'd say I'm crushed (I am) but I'm not (really not) becuase of the progress Monica and I made over the last couple of weeks. I'll get to see y'all off, get some of my own shtuff under control, and have some time and maybe a little bit of money to unwind from everything that has been going on lately.

    My personal goals were so close to being met... the big one will still be achievable, and that's meeting and hanging out with you lunatics for a couple of days!
    I.m very close and will make it. Would gladly lend a hand. Hope to see ya tomorrow, I'll be near an old green pick-up. Ya got 9 more hours till the clock chimes.

    Well, the best plans of mice and men...

    My truck (plan A) has a problem that I can't seem to fix and will not make it. Plan B went camping with my wife and daughter, so plan C is my HHR daily driver. I am going to be the slowest car out there, but I will have AC and I will be there!
