I think the country should make rebuilds mandatory... offer a cheaper alternative government controlled garage... and fine anyone who's car sets apart for too long.

Are you detailing the engine bay while the motor is out? Good opportunity to do some cleaning and painting if you are not ready to rebuild the motor, that way your Camaro will know you still love her.

I started to but don't want it to just sit there once I get it clean. I will definitely do it with some paint and such. Going to paint the block orange to match and then do black and chrome in areas. So it should look really sweet when I'm done.

IF I get done. hahaha

I'm about to break down and do it on credit. hahahaha

Lucky you. I had a parachute policy and was cancelled. My new insurance would be almost 700.00 per month more. To 780.00 per month and a yearly out of pocket on top of that at 12700.00.

Total extortion of my fine ............ err........ tax. Because screw it. They want a dependent populace, I'll just pay the fine until I need insurance then I can jump on the exchange as a parachute policy. Actually comes out about 10 dollars cheaper for me.

Dumb as hell fiscally for the country but, hey, it's all about what we can get from the Gov. for ourselves as individuals right?

Hate to get you started but why has the Govt cost you and extra $700 a month. Hoping you and Bon will be in Texas looking at the silver bird next May.

Uh yeah, I would be too. I wasn't happy paying a one time gas guzzler tax, I'm sure he's ecstatic right now

OHHH P.S. I forgot to ask you PQ, how about that Baylor OU game

Now if OU could do us a huge favor and beat OSU, that would be great!

yeah, i wouldn't be so ticked if the system wasn't abused like it is. i grew up in the backwoods of TN where taking help you didn't 'earn' just didn't feel right & i'll admit that if it wasn't for food stamps & healthcare, raising the 4 of us would've been even more of a nightmare for my single mom, but she did everything in her power to use as little of the program as she could.
this new system seems to be designed to more-benefit the lazy slobs who have no qualms taking a check from Uncle Sam so they ain't got to work no more than they have to.

maybe it's like how i block text messaging service due to the losers who refuse an actual conversation for a jumbled mess of letters they claim conveys a clear thought.

No starting, I had a policy that only covered hospitalizations major surgery and life saving treatment. It was really cheap because it paid nothing for regular stuff. But I always paid that out of pocket and if we got really sick then it would cover so we'd always be able to pay.

That policy was canceled because our Gov. decided it was not good for me. (how that is their business when I pay my own medical bills is beyond me) We now have a minimum level of coverage a company can legaly offer us. Whether we want it or not. Best I found here in alabama was 780.00 per month. Which is 700.00 per month more than I paid for my parachute policy. Our fearless hero leader decided that he'd let the insurance companies continue for another year to give us what we want (sickening I know) but the company that I had had began to faze those type policies out anyway. This was a perfect excuse for them to now keep it canceled.

I'll leave it at that.
