Sorry Mike. You'll never get a chance to race her again.

I only wish it looked like this coming off the line.

First time I ever junked a perfectly running car... :sighs:

Dropped the crossmember?

yup. I was quite suprised how easy it was to pop back up in place once the engine was out. I used to do it all the time at the JY, but I never had to put the xmember back in.

Talk to MikeJr... that is if he hasn't parted it out (jk)

It's kinda weird. Must be that I'm at a different stage in my life. I've never parted out a perfectly (well not perfectly) running car. Strange.

perfectly running car with no motor?

it's a 700 series. That is their fate:

step 1: remove motor

step 2: crush.

Damn! +t car bites the dust- I hope you took the overload coils off. I loved looking in your trunk-a motor, 300lbs of tools, spares for everything under the hood.

Motor removed with Russian Sweat.( He deadlifted motors in and out of that trunk!)

my record was 2 shortblocks and 1 m46 in the trunk at once. It was half living room-half pickup truck.

What a turd. Remember +Ting that thing? Gah what a mess.
