I've got some bad news... Last night was probably the last night for the hatch.

Got home from work, rolled into the driveway.. The radiator blew out a bunch of fluid and then smoke came barrelling out of the engine. The car still runs but the exhaust manifold burns up to a hot red color. The whole exhaust system from the engine is leaking exhaust. The "big gotcha" on the hatch is they no longer make the exhaust manifold system for the 1.8 engine equipped with the factory turbo so basically the car is toast for now.

So.. with this news I may be without a car. BUT, I am gonna try to get the coupe rolled over to the house and I will be doing the Z24 front clip conversion quickly so I can get the car into the shop to get an estimate on repairs. It has been dead since September 02 and I am assuming it was either an alternator or starter problem. So if thats the case I will have a car by the Bash.

But with anything these days that may not happen... If its nonrepairable with low cost I will be without a car for the Bash. Perfect timing I tell you, I was going to have a new car by now. Yeah, stupid women.

Would you consider a lease for a week or so until I get an estimate for repair, repair on coupe, tabs, emssions on the coupe?

Damon you can ride with me too...and it would be a lot better then riding in that big ass ugly truck of AT's.





j/k Anthony


I will be there...the cavy made it to and from the Tri-Cities over the last week without any problems, so it should be good to go to Spokane. I would perfer to caravan with somebody else from the Seattle area, Keeper and/or Kardin??? It would make me feel better incase I have a break down. Please let me know when you guys are planning on leaving.

I, like James, is cheap and will be staying at Dean's place. So somebody, Damon, please let Dean know that I need some space to sleep. Thanks!

Later!

damn, I sure wish I could go. I don't think the Cav would make it with the lifter problem. I'm working on getting estimates for an Eco swap though.
man, I really liked Oregon I guess.
btw, anybody interested in the secret cams? I have both the intake and the exhaust, and both are in towers right now. since there's only 3 peeps in AZJBO that have the LD9 and can't use the cams, I thought I'd offer them to JBNW first.
you guys get a lot of pics at the Bash! I can't wait to see 'em.

Lets see what the next few days bring me.. The last two days all it has been is extreme hell... First with the car and now my computer.. Sorry folks I just acquired a computer problem tonight.. Erik if I do get the coupe fixed it will be a first that we have two 2nd gens in one meet! I think since AT has a truck he should rent a trailer and he can haul the 1st gen around and make him feel special! LMAO.. I cant say for sure but I have good feelings about the coupe.. Anyone have an extra set of aftermarket rims they can spare for the weekend? I hate rolling my black steelies! erhehe

According to Dean theres plenty of room, possibly pitch a tent out back kind of like we did at Anthony's at the 04 Bash..

I will have film and tripod, so i will be getting assloads of pics, and trying for a few nightshots of the lineup.

Unfortunately, Miška and I were out in Chicago last week, rollin' in my Aunt's Grand Marquis (Driving Callisto again is nice--may not have the v8 power, but actually handles well in comparison)) so i couldn't keep up. But let me know information about crashing at someone's place--I'll talk to Miška, but last i checked she didn't mind me putting my tent up somewhere (like, sosone's back yard) and chrashing there.

I should be there, but late--we're talking midnight or so Friday.

Jarret: I would love to, but I'll be a bit short on cash for awhile. How much, and how difficult is the install?

There's a sticky in the performance forum that gives a brief overview of the swap. NY J-Bodies or TeamForwardMotion may have info on it in their tech sections


edit:

Any word yet that anyone knows of from the Oregon folks?

Well after tlaking with Josh alil bit tonight, I think the crew and I are gonna crash at his place, so Damon tell Dean thanks for the offer, but big screen with xbox is very appealing!

Just spent the morning brining over the coupe. I just finished installing the black Z24 hood and fender instead of the ugly red ones.. Tomorrow morning will be installing the bumper and lights. Once I get the body all worked out it will then be sent to the shop.. I'll get a quote on repairs at the end of this week and I am hoping it will be up and running by early next week. And with further inspection I found a nice rip in my upper raditor hose on the hatch and currently waiting for a phone call from Schucks for a replacement. Once that is installed I think my hatchback will be just fine. So once I get all this figured out I think I'll be cruising the coupe with the new Z24 front clip but I have to get new tabs and such. I was thinking if you want Anthony, you can roll the hatch so you can save some money on gas. If so I'll teach you how to drive it cause theres a few tricks to drive it!


As for Mt. Spokane, not sure if we will have time but we'll see.

That could be fun, but I think my truck gets the same gas mileage as your hatch I still think it would be fun to tow that baby around hehe.

heres my take on the situation...

1) my cav wont be up and running, so i will have to ride with someone.
2) I'm not a big fan of people crashing all over spokane...its hard enough to get everyone motivated from one place.
3) If josh wants to offer his place up thats cool, perhaps damon and him could work out details and lead this expedition and I will just tag along when I can.

if this is the case I can just tell the person who is going out of town not to worry because I dont need the place if its just susan and I.
