I see myself in this one. Rather than a car note I'd prefer to keep this one up with that money. But I can't be sure. Depends on the 6th Gen. If it's the rumored one that is floating around I'll def. be keeping this one.

Hmmmm, maybe I said cast meaning something else. It looks like the part of the block that it broken out in the oil valley. I'll get good pics as I can this evening.

Well we don't have a place here. I'll have to find one to send mine to.

SHOULD get there tonight. Though I would last night but keep running in to problems and little time. Up early and off to the office then get off at 7:30 to 8:00 and usually don't get home and out to the garage by 9 or 10 with errands and the kids stuff.

Only oil I have that is in mixed with other is from the filter. And not much of it. Like an ounce.
