    I wish. Only problem is, if I do any real performance mods to my engine it will void my warranty I have through CarMax. Just have 24K left before mods. I should have another vehicle by then also. Eventually I want to have this as my garage kept, weekend driver, lots-a-ponies vehicle.

    Just Found Out

    GM is replacing all of my springs. Said they replaced all the bushings/sleeves. Also that the Head is fine. Once they get final approval from the CarMax warranty people it will take about a day to rebuild and test it. I'm hoping I can get it back tomorrow. I miss my baby.

    What really sucks is that I will have to take it to a body shop next week and be without it for another week. An older lady had backed into my driverside rear quarter panel. Not a lot of damage, but still noticeable. The day before I was supposed to get the dent taken out I started having engine troubles so I had to put the appearance repairs on hold. At least I might have it for the weekend.

    Just letting ya'll know that I found out the repairs will be covered by the warranty and I should only have to pay a $50 deductible.

    Talk about a huge load off my nerves.
