    Getting the bird back after 3 months.

    Finally I am getting my Trans Am back after 3 long months of driving around 115 horsepower p.o.s. Going to 290 horsepower now! Had to replace the transmission mounts, replace 2 cylinders and 2 head gaskets, re-do all the wiring, replace the computer, fix the air conditioning, replace the windsheild, replace the oxygen sensors, and replace the catalytic converter. Been a long and surprisingly not that expensive road. My buddy's dad was a GM Mechanic for 30+ years so he gets all the stuff for 10% of the retail price. I got lucky there! Once I get it back this Friday, i'll detail it Saturday and post pictures of it Sunday.

    Glad to hear! What happened to your car? Blown head gasket, dropped valves?
