    Will try to make it, but only to see if Sue wants to do it. The Cossie won't be up by then.

    the time: sunday morning.

    the road: rt 495 south.

    from a 40mph dig i was racing dave in my old black mirage. we were basically neck and neck, the black mirage with the modded motor (getting tired and belching out smoke but STILL a fucking champ!!) and the red mirage with a stock motor. i pulled 90mph in 3rd and shifted to 2nd on accident. BING! went the rev limiter as the tach sailed past 8K.

    jumped timing. im off by three teeth. the belt wasn't as tight as it should be. the car still runs and drives, but has no power after 5K. not leaking any oil. compression the same as days after i bought it. im going to reset the timing and maybe hook up my SAFC saturday morning. i also need to replace spark plugs/wires/dizzy cap/rotor and get a new battery. then do tie rod ends.

    i would say the car is a POS, but i just havent made it bulletproof like the black one yet. but then again, as soon as its straight it is off to indiana for the silver turbo GT hatchie :)
