Title: The Car Party That Wasn't
Post by: Mike 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 (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)

We hit 287, we were making good time and then....
MOBBY THREW HIS TIMING CHAIN! YAY! (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley18.gif)
So a quick phone call to Steve, who now had to unload a certain Duster (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)  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 (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)

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 (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif) (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 (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley11.gif) )

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! (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley19.gif)

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"!

Hate to see Mobby have to sell Nadine! Say it ain't so John! Somehow she just suits you!

Post by: Leaburn Patey on November 04, 2008, 02:28:33 PM
I was just kidding about him selling it.
Having rode shotgun with  John,he  wont sell.
John has a love/hate relationship with Nadine..He loves that car,but hates it when she breaks!!
Talk about bad timing!! (pun intended!)
No money,no wheels,no luck.
But the friends you have here are priceless,Mobby.
I wish I could up and leave to come fix her.
 
Mobby has one half a semester of school left and then he is finished.
Then he can make the big bux, and fix up his car the way he always wanted to.
