She has spent 3 glorious years with Clif's cousin in North Georgia getting a mechanical makeover. There is still lots to do, but the economy has kept the progress going at a snail's pace. So today, we brought her home. I call her "The Money Pit." She still needs lots of cosmetic surgery (inside and out) and a fuel injection makeover . The list is quite long and neither one of us really has the guts to add it all up.
I followed him home and took a few cell phone pictures, but the entertainment of the day came when he tried to get her into the garage in a somewhat permanent position. I say that, because I know my husband. He says that he'll drive her every couple of weeks. I say she may need another overhaul before she runs much more. I have also just lost a great deal of real estate in the garage.
Here are two videos. I might be slightly sarcastic in these. And as for the second one. I haven't laughed so hard in months. And the exhaust....Let's just say I can still smell it in the garage.
