Title: Rescue the 300 - The finale.
Post by: Stan Paralikis on October 20, 2010, 01:03:29 PM

... of Steve running like a madman down to Clearwater Florida to save another car that he left in someone elses hands for the last 10 years (Panic mode: ON!) and he's already called me 5 times. (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)
Sheesh, Steve: Remove me from speed dial, will ya? (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

Good luck Steve...Hope all goes well and you have an uneventful and safe journey.  Try and keep the stress to a minimum...that's when we make mistakes on the road.

Steve's at home on the road.
I rode shot gun with him several times-one long haul to Detroit from Scranton,PA.
He gets into a groove where he keeps on going,yet knows when to stop when he's tired.
Sure wanted to go on this trip,but I could not afford to take the time off to go.
 
Stan,is he doing phone abuse again??
Sheesh..Cut him some slack,he does not have anybody in the cab to yak at.
 
Unlike the heart sinking plucked chicken fiasco,there may be some bustin' balls on this trip.
 

Steve,drive safe my blue shirt buddy.

Don't go there.  I'm extra careful not to put gas in it.  Besides, I'm better prepared if I do.  HEY!  I caught it didn't I?
 
As for that pointed headed Stanley. . . . .
 
STOP CHANGING DESTINATIONS AFTER I HAVE PASSED THEM ALREADY!
 
He left out the 4 calls he made to me. . . .
 
I came extremely close to wipping out on 95 this evening. . .   Hit an oil slick and went down a bank on the shoulder sideways.  Good save though, trailer started to knife left, I turned right and gave it the goose.  She belched out a pile of black smoke, dug in and pulled it straight.  I ended up back on the shoulder.  Now there's oil sprayed over everything
 
Stan.  .Please post the pic you took of me.  I want to PROVE TO THE SNOT I was not wearing blue jeans or a blue shirt, or white sneakers.

First of all, I want to thank Stan and Lance (Stans Friend) from the bottom of my heart.  You are definitely a good friend
 
We arrived at 10 this morning, the situation with my best friend is not good.  I  know Stan and Lance were reluctant to get involved, let alone go in his house.  I am so embarrased.  This man has been my best friend for 35 years.  It's the bimbo he lives with which is a good  reason for birth control.
 
I'll get back to you.
 
A special thanks to Mike, My friends friend as well.

That about sums up the first half of the day. . . . 
 
My half continued into the night.  Didn't get to eat until 10:00, but after piggin out on that Hero Sandwich , I was able to hold up.
 
But the night was more intersting.  Mike and I finished off the 12 pak, I got to see Chuck again, who spent the whole day sleeping. . .We yapped out in the shop for hours.  Chris went in hours before and you could hear him roaring at his significant other.  (What ever she is)  That continued into the night until around 1 or so, where I just passed out on the couch. 
 
Stan, the "back pain" was signicantly worse last night then you saw in the morning.  Had to get tower clearence.  The pain is really bad now.. . . .
 
It's 11:00 and nobody is up.  I want to get my butt out of here and find a motel where I can soak my knees in a pool and get a shower, for the lack of clean towels here.  But that nice lady you met, cleaned the whole hous and reduced the dirty laundry to 20 ft.  I guess that's where the towels are.  Chrises dog his still with us too.  That was the source of the smell

Oh I know where to start. . .
 
Since the Axles, and Brakes are all done, There is no work there.
 
The engine has to come out again, the Torque converter needs to be installed, The engine needs the right oil pan needs to be installed.  While that is all out, the firewall needs to be touched up.
 
Obviously the front will have to come off and be reassembled and have the final paint applied.  The dash is all painted already, all that needs is a reassembly.
 
So it, put the drivetrain together, detail, wrap the engine, put the front back pn and repaint the car, finish the outside, install the glass, put the doors together, then get on the interior
 
Not hard
