Ok, sorry, had to run a client across town......

Sooooo, I called Becky and ordered my coilovers. Becky was of course as pleasant as ever to work with which is why I contacted her. Pedders was just simply more affordable and Pete has been right there with advice and help recently. Plus I've heard nothing but good things from members and owners of Pedders equipment. Pete spends a lot of time interacting and advising the community here and that goes a long way with me.

So....... IT'S BACK ON.......... Poopyhead.

XAs. I gotta give Bonnie a dollar for every dollar I spend. I just don't have that kind of money. LOL

You know, I posted that about the fingers out of concern for his being able to drive that, that, ....... that thing at the Fest... Then I remembered that he drives one of those point and shoot Oh-so-matics... so whatever... as long as he doesn't drop the car on his foot he ought to be good to go....


edit:, this was a joke, and only a joke, not to be taken in any form or fashion as my implication that I do not care if you have something happen... Team 66-7 needs you... and I'm looking forward to meeting you...

I saw that. lol







Damn, I gotta get my tool list together. I don't want to get caught without them all.

Seems like everything I do requires at least ONE tool I don't have.
