In Conclusion

I think it's pretty obvious by now that this blog is done. I'm still working on becoming a race car driver and I think the SCSCSC will return but a wrapping up needs to be done.
The car got chopped up and made into sculptures. One was put out to pasture at my parents home in east county San Diego and the others have been shown at the Los Angeles Municiple Art Gallery, Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects and the Laguna Art Museum.

Tool Box fetish

I'm beginning to enjoy the suburbs there are a lot of little surprises.  Garage sales are a different breed in these parts, the taste level isn't quite there but people aren't trying to make money as much as get rid of stuff.  When I hit the neighborhood garage sales last weekend I didn't expect to find much.  Until I came across the guy selling all his old tools (I felt bad until I saw his giant MAC case of "new" tools).  I could have and probably should have spent the kids college fund there but I just came away with this rolling toolchest and a creeper and a handful of tools and records.
It's kicked my inner gearhead in gear....I need to start working on a car....or maybe a redwood hot tub

The engine is fried - for real this time

Eric finished his examination of the engine.  Actually he tracked down an RX7 person to confirm it and officially the engine is fried.  Which is something I think we all knew but It's good to hear for real from an official type decision maker.  Basically it would be cheaper to buy a new engine than to replace all the parts that need replacing.

So, now with the dreary economy and much of the team living a freelance lifestyle we're taking a little longer to regroup than originally planned.  It's too late for Reno but Buttonwillow is still looking feasible.  I've kind of been working on the car but not quite in the right direction to keep it running.  Then again, I've got to get it out of my garage one way or another.
