Is there evidence that you’re getting “older?”

Happy beginnings to your second childhood!
Hahaha.
I've got two daughters. Need a son to carry the name one more generation.

This is amusing:

I am one of four boys.

From those four, we have five girls and one boy.

It takes a REAL man to have a son...

195/65R15’s. Thx for the recommendation. They fill the wheel wells like the 16’s did. Should be great.

I can trade you straight across for the hood with some “gently” used 195/60R15’s...

Car ran well today. Quieter, straighter and the radio and heater worked. A year worth of effort paid off.

On my wish list for the car would be more power. It really does trundle along just fine on flat ground at 75 mph. But the mountains tested it. Kind of been on the fence about the turbo swap. But I can see why it’s popular.

I decided to add the turbo when this jerk pulled up next to me instead of getting behind me knowing that his lane was going to end in ~30 yards. I’ll never forget it. It was a Pontiac Aztec that was beat to hell and back. I thought in my mind that I was not letting him in front of me. Well the light turned green and he and I both gunned it. We know then end of the story because I have a Holset now!
With 26lbs I am probably slightly more than double what the car had prior to T’ing it.
On the way back from the ipd show last year I was playing around on I5 with 3 Lamborghini’s and staying with them. They loved that this old wagon could stay with them.

So the point I’m making is go for it Carl. It’s definitely worth the work and money!!!

Great story. I’ve probably got 75% or more of the parts. And I do love that turbo sound.

The car ran great! Very happy. Checked the mileage on the last 200 miles and she got 27 mpg. Not too shabby.

Glad to see you're enjoying your wagon again. These cars can do surprisingly well on MPG's on the highway. Even with my Wife's car, we were able to get really close to 27-28 on our drive down to Ashland and back last summer for her job.

New toy. Love the new generation of battery tools. Wish I had this, oh, about 10 years ago.
