So he had it out and about... said the valve lash sounded off and he'd have the car ready by mid-March. Engine out... shim the buckets... yadda yadda yadda. Seems odd that it would need the buckets shimmed unless he put it together wrong and hadn't laid out everything and kept the parts together in a super anal-retentive way. Not sure if I should worry. He is putting a warranty on it...

Anyway, well that's nice. I stopped by the credit union and got my funding straightened out, so as soon as he says "GO" I'm in like Flynn...

Assuming my walkaround/crawlaround/crawlunder/test drive/test thrashing goes well.

I have a process to weed out bad potential buys, and it has not failed me yet...

Here's hoping!
