Did your tranny die yet? Or are you just picking up a good deal?

It's most likely an electrical bit that after all this time has given up the ghost. You know some Brickboarders, all tweeds, smoke, and nobby as hell, will know.

Frustrated? Anyway, and whatever you do, don't get a Honda. CivicPsycho doesn't sound good.

Kyle... Step away from the car and take a deep breath.

That car is the soul of the Orlando meets! Tell you what. I won't sell the 850 if you don't sell the 240.

One thing is for sure. I'm impervious to Wantingnewcaritus! I've paid off two cars and two motorcycles to date. Payments are a bummer! At least with this route, I get something cool, different, and personal for a lot less money and hassle then something off the showroom floor.

Yeah, try to relax and stick with it. I think you'll end up with some rather special if you do.

Exclamation Immm Baaack

Sorry i started to flake out. This car is really starting to get to me. MY plan was to buy a 242 shell and swap all the goodies over but i think the ole girl still has some soul left in her to kill.

Its still not running but i gareentee that by the next orlando meet she will be operational and have the means to destroy not only her tires but her own damn engine.

Just gave her a bath and armoralled the plastic. so nice.

the car should be running by next week, then the vw can go in auto trader and i can get some real money to make this car less of a lazy bitch

Until next time peace

Ps it was the new fuel pump. (stay away from TRE) and i love you guys so much (cept you mike, cause you wont buy my vw )

IS everyone moving to orlando, damn, i best hurry up and get on the ball otherwise by the time i get over its going to be called Little Gotenburg. I may need your number to ask you about random wiring questions. Such as "does the Volvo coil need a 6 amp or 12 amp connection from the ecu?"

Thanks for the help guys,
