Speaking of US beer....

What does Budweiser and sex in a canoe have in common?

Both of them are f**king close to water.



Guinness and Strong Bow are my bevvies of choice.

No it was the plastic door panels. If you remember a few months before the Camaro went into production the company that was making a pile of the interior parts went bankrupt. GM had sue to get the molds back. GM was not happy with some of the early plastic parts. IE: the door panels. So Pumpkin sat in QC hold (Area 51) until the door panels were replaced.

When Pumpkin arrived she came with the battery cable recall, even though she spent 60 days in Area 51. My dealer supplied me with the parts and instructions to do recall, cause they could not do recall cause of the headers. So when I removed the header I found that the recall fix had already been done.

COOOOOOOOOOOOOOLer's are good with me.

Were you in the original Area 51. I was under the understanding that Pumpkin went down to the fianal 4 in Area 51.

Huh...ok. My driver side door panel does not line up, nor has it ever lined up properly to the dash. The entire thing is off a smidgen. I really should take it back to see if they can get it lined up properly. Mike, 2010ABMSS, noticed a small bulge in my dash. I think I might as well go ahead and run it in at the beginning of the new year...get the dash looked at, the door panel looked at, get the rattle in the back looked at.

I got my price quote for my parts today. I think I'll go ahead and send off shortly for the goodies. We'll see. Shouldn't be too much longer.

I have never really looked at it that close. My understanding was the moldings were not up to par. But I will take a close look.

What stuff are you getting for your baby?

BTW way if PQ shook out enough coins from his piggy bank for blower. A pully should be no big deal.

Just saying

Maybe we can take a collection for the pully.

I'll have my 3.6 pulley AND beer.

What I was thinking, was I will throw them in the race car hauler when we go to Veags next year at the start of the season. Then I can get one of my Bud's to ship them to Firebird and back to his place after. Then they can come back home in the hauler on one of the trips back to the Great White North. It might work. Got to look at next years scheldue.

Need some help from GTAHVIT as where I can ship them too and who can recieve at Firebird.
