Michael on Saturday:

Yeah just a couple of hours when you get here and we'll have it in Challenge condition.

Michael on Monday:

I've spent all morning on it doing things and now I think I'll take the dash apart also.

Half measures availed us nothing. We stood at the turning point. We asked his care and protection with complete abandon.

what stampie is referring to is the dash. Theres a mouse nest i can smell somewhere in this mofo. Comes strong out of dash vents.

 

It wasn't in the hvac box. And i am pulling all the budget breaking goodies back out. And starting to clean it up. He'll have a LOT more to do in Florida. This thing is filthy.

Is there budget for a cat or two?  I feel like you could use a few cats around.

we have an indoor/outdoor cat. Hes an shiny happy person. Only chases chases lizards. His buddies the strays out in the woods dont patrol the carport where this one lives. 

Maybe you can install the "Mouse Killer" app on your existing cat.  Just watch out when you go to plug in the USB cord.

I dailied all seasons for 2 years on a Miata lowered on coilovers with FM sways, front soft, rear set on full hood.

Blood pressure was low, adrenaline not so much.  Oh, and it made rain days fun

Were they the ones that were on the 14s? The falkens that i got the set new for 100?

 

Scott: yes it is! And i may leave it alone for a minute and enjoy throttle steering at 20mph

You'll walk outside and the car will just be spinning in-place.  All on it's own.

No, the 14s went very early, there were 205/50s on stock 15s then the snazzy 15x8 +0 that looked so good with stretched (came like that, NO sidewall flex) 195/50s

So much wheels spin and never did wear out the tread

We're in a sleepy little NC town.  Going to head over in the morning to get a lesson in GM V6 swapped Miata.  Highlight of the trip so far was a political sign for someone named "Porkchop".

Who's he running against?  "Spare rib"?  Sounds like a recovering meth addict, who gained a passion for public service.
