Back ont he road!

Well Enrique took care of the car, redid the head, all new valve guides, seals, valves, timing chain, chain guides, thermostat, some hoses, new oil and coolant of course, and shifter bushings, he also checked the car inside and out and checked all suspension components, wheel bearings, wiring harness and all else was ok.

Charged me an excellent price as usual, for a jhob well done. Car is back and purring like a kitten. Car feels great, power is improved, and timing is dead on rather than off by a tooth like it was before!!!

I know you feel good about this. One of the great thing about these cars is the fact that a) the engines respond well to such work and b) the rest of the car stays solid and in good shape for a very long time, making it worth doing such work. They are not throwaway cars.

Enjoy,

Alon, How many miles on it? I remember seeing a pix once - can you provide another? I remember it being very cool.
