Cars In The Shop

Cars been in the shop for 7 days waiting on some parts and its time in the chair. Have been going nuts without it. I went out to the garage to wash it like I do ever Saturday morning, opened the door, and just an empty spot. :-(

Yup ... I was down for almost 8 months last year. 4k is the mileage total for the past year, most of which was on the dyno, and breaking in fluids. Lol
