Default I miss my car so fkin bad!!!

As some of you know my v is down till I come up with $3500 for the engine rebuild and it doesn't look like it will be anytime soon :-(
Well I've started noticing that everybody and there dog has a fun car that just makes me want my v back up and running! I miss the 2nd gear pulls at 45 and the car meets when I'm bored... I have a great deal thru a company by the name of coyote engine rebuilders which will put all new internals in my block, dyno tune her and warranty her for 3yrs/30k miles... Did I mention that they will also pickup my car and drop her back of to me when she is done? YES! well I'm looking at january or february before she gets heart surgery...sorry for the ramble but I needed to vent!


-Aaron

P.s. Fck off cole! that's for whatever smart *** comment you have for me :-P

Aaron, I understand you are going through withdrawls, but you car is a puke green turd with the worst interior color for any car. And I bet rocking that '92 Deville is much more fun then that unmodded **** box '05.

My car is pretty not for sale anymore...not going to be home long enough/at all from now until the end of January. Got to love new training TDYs and going off to play war.

The LS6 is a good motor.. I had an oil leak that was only leaking when I drove (no oil puddles in my driveway) so when my oil light came on I thought it was an error because I had just replaced the oil about 4 months before and I only drive about 100 miles a week...

Well I hope you at least sit in it from time to time making vrrrooom vrrrooom noises pretending to drive it. You can even go on YouTube and pull some exhaust rev vids and play em through the sound system.

Rednecks rebuild Chevy Small blocks in their backyard every single day!

What's your sorry *** excuse for not doing it yourself?!

Also, if you're going to do a rebuild, man up and get yourself some fun parts:
