The Car Party That Wasn't
« on: November 02, 2008, 12:33:36 PM »

The 3 blind mice left for Hobby's house this morning, not quite on schedule...but close enough for government work  




We hit 287, we were making good time and then....
MOBBY THREW HIS TIMING CHAIN! YAY!
So a quick phone call to Steve, who now had to unload a certain Duster   and come pick up a 5,000 lb paperweight.  The Mighty Dodge pulled the beached whale back to Wharton, where we all met Hemi John...who with Hobby, diagnosed the thrown chain. 
So Mobby, doing what he does best, took us all for pizza.  We pulled the New Yorker towards home, which is now residing at P's house...  After a detour to show Hobby the progress on my Fury.  Hobby's charm and wit got him out of a speeding ticket.  Good times were had by all, except Mobby, who's hole is now almost to china

Mobby is polishing his thumb and looking for a short skirt to get rides.

I'm sorry to hear this guys!  That sucks...  especially the part about Mobby having to shave his legs to get rides to school and back.

Wow!  Pretty short break you took from here, Boss Hoss  (Glad you're feeling good enough to help out the biggest mouse of the 3).

Mobby, sorry to hear about the thrown timing chain.

I've got some problems to deal with, which means that Chaz is non-op until I fix the toasty bulkhead connectors, as seen here (which also means I'll be pulling the dash, too )

Walking, it's what I'll be doing to go to work and back, until I fix these things...and then there's the problem with the master cylinder going to crap...oy!

Lol Good Thinking Lea, But I'd rather help my buddy get her back on the
road. Besides what kinda Money you think Napa Pays a delivery driver
anyhow? I'll have to take to the higher ups about that acquistion.

Why would you want that car? If it isn't cursed then it's been ridden hard and put away wet....

Mobby...the term is "Drive it like ya stole it".....not "Drive it like belongs to yer ex-wife"!
