Drove the LSE home for the first time in a month! A few curb puddles, but easily avoided. Started right up, thanks to its new battery. Right now I'm charging it. It is supposed to be dry for the next few days. 😀

Jealous! I miss the Marauder a lot around this time of year.

Alas, I drove the P7B down to Parkman and went junkin', came back with more vintage crap I didn't need. Then I ran it through a car wash, because ODOT laid ALL the salt down.

Fresh oil and filter on the '97.

Got a call from the transmission shop on the '87. They had it all buttoned up and had test drove it, only to realize they accidentally didn't put in the higher stall torque converter. They said it'll get taken care of and I should hear back beginning of next week. Otherwise, they said it's shifting great again!

CVN was activated last night:


(L-R: aknox077, pantera77, a_d_a_m, 2006_P71)

I scored a rust-free fender for the P7B from pantera77, and a 17" spare steelie from 2006_P71. 2006 sold pantera some headers, too.

We met near my house since it's the geographic center for the two who drove farthest. Ended up in my backyard blasting music and burning [censored] for an hour or two. All in all, a great night. Miss the old CVN meet days.

Wait what headers did he buy this time? Thought he just bought some stainless works a couple weeks back and he sold me the kooks he had sitting around

The roads finally dried off for the first time in about 2 weeks, so I took the GM to the coin operated car wash and pressure washed the salt off. Now the highway department just came by spraying that brine crap with no snow in the forecast.

Drove the midget today, and then drove the marquis to pick up a different filter

It was the SW headers I bought a few weeks ago. Nate picked them up from a buddy of his in MI, then we met in Cleveland to exchange goods. Saved on shipping, plus haven't seen him in a few years now. We all had a great time, it was like good ole CVN days again!

Dropped Jake & Elwood off at the vet (they won't thank me for it, they're getting neutered. I suppose since they'll never get laid this makes them honorary CVNers). Filled the tank, sprayed the dome light switch with silicone.
