Well, the auction was a lot of fun, except for my wife getting up every 10-15 minutes to barf.
She's getting her Fiat, though, so she's excited. I'm still, STILL working on the deal for the Jaguar and it's 11:30pm? I have $88k on the table and the guy said he'd call me back by 12.
The shop bought a distressed `65 Stingray from a salvage yard, for restoration. Just the body and frame, nothing else. They also said they're done with the engine rebuild on the F40, now they'll button it all up and install the new computer, pump, and management system and we'll see what's what. Yeah... $15k system.
But what can you do? The old box couldn't handle the mods that had already been done, and that was a part of the problem. Preignition damaged the valves (@$120 each), rings, and fried 4 pistons. So yeah, engine knock is a very bad thing, mmkay? While they were at it, they replaced all the rubber gaskets and hoses with silicone or steel and that will allow us to run E85. Catalytic converters? What are those?
I figure running the cleaner fuel will easily make it a wash, on that front.
