    They called and said it will take three weeks to get a part so I told them to cancel. Show and cruise time will be over soon anyway and I can continue to not drive the car for another nine months.

    My 78 caprice had a bar under the driveshaft. It held up when I pulled the engine and transmission without taking the driveshaft out.

    Are they special? Seems that these lawn tractors like to go through spindle mounts. Maybe an upgrade to some grade 8 (or metric equivalent) would be warranted.

    Pondering buying a wiring harness for $150. That's a lot just for tail lights but its kind of important and also covers the backup lights in the tailgate. Can't get power to the right tail light and broke the plastic pigtail on the driver's side. Car IS fifty years old. Plus never retested the transmission after readjusting the throttle cable.

    Forgot about the wet floor problem in the el camino. Pondering if its brake fluid as it is on the driver's side and it hasn't rained much lately. Also its a little oily. RR turn signal and brake lights not working. Trying to remember if it was doing that when/before I parked it. Front works-I thought old cars the blinker wouldn't flash if a bulb went out? Four way works on the other three corners. LR works fine. Left turn indicator on dash isn't lighting up or flashing. Gotta trace the wire from front to back. Tail light checked out bulbs and wires.
    Adjusted the throttle bracket all the way back and FiTech said 90% on TPS but the tension on the TV cable makes it hard to press the pedal.
