Default Gee, I'm Pissed orf!!!

Picked the car up today after finding out that my co-driver had run it out of water and pumped 2 Lts oil into the catch can at a corporate track day.

Cars running on 3 cylinders and I just don't feel like going back through another rebuild and more down time that I just don't have the time or money, or the energy or the inclination.
I was going to do my ultimate 1 hour next month, I had decided that a national series was a fitting way to end a motorsport career spanning over 30 years.
So the car is up for sale with a new motor, we'll see if all those people who always say that they want to buy him are fair dinkem.

Gee!!!!! I'm pissed orf.

This is why I'll soon be in garage replacing the slave on the Monster car. The GF and I plan a lil cruise in morning same reason, before it gets hot. Plan to take the HT off as well. I think the ride will be enhanced, with the exhaust more noticeable. Damn a V8 sounds good.

Threw my old ventilated block in the dumpster after removing all the parts I needed from it, and also made a video ridiculing SJMarcy.
