Lolz, I guess Carlisle is the "Penicillin Penny" of the neon world.

She's Penicillin Penny and her future's written in the stars

She's Penicillin Penny and ever since the day she came and came
They say she's had so many, she gives 'em all numbers not names
I always call her Hun' but she calls me 1001

And Penicillin Penny starts to boogie when the day is done

She's Penicillin Penny and if you ever see her passin' through
Better run into your house before she stops and lays a little on you
If you ever let her in your door it takes 20 million units
Or more to cure the love that Penicillin Penny's gonna lay on you

For those of you who aren't my friend on facebook (or don't have a facebook *gramps*)

This is how the car sits right now, pulling the front bumper and passenger fender off to get them repainted this week. I may have drove through a farmers fence back in the winter on an icy road. So I figured I should atleast clean the car up for a car show lol.

Can't wait to see my 2gn family soon!!

OK, just for general info, if you have registered past the June 9th cut off, and you haven't gotten your sticker in the mail by now, you won't.

You have to pick it up at Gate 3 on Thursday or Friday am in the small brick building.

You should still be able to register online (if it still works), or by phone, but you will have to pick up your stickers at the gate. Do not look for it in your mail box.

I just slapped some $60 tires on, so I can blow through them on this trip and get a fresh alignment afterward.

FYI Advance currently has 30% off parts sidewide, so I just got "decent" brakes and rotors for $58.

I wasn't about to drive 500 miles with a crooked steering wheel.

Mine too so I don't have to mess around with eBay or craigslist.:roll:
Would anyone want to help me by alerting people on srtforums about what I have to sell? I don't have enough posts on their site to access the FS section there. Thanks!

Ok man, you really need to change your avatar!

I'm joking. I just got really scared that Gramps just blew up his car. Please don't get me wrong because I feel bad for anyone on this board having issues (obviously we've all been there at some point), but I have an unhealthy attachment to Gramps' car.

I don't know if I've got it as bad as you, but I have had my stupid transmission out 3 times in the past year, twice since April.

:shock: No, thank God. You would find me locked up in a rubber room if that happened. :violent2:

Sad to read about anyone having car issues. Let's all make it safely to Carlisle- just a few more days! :blob3:

In the process of detailing the car before leaving and discovered rust underneath the inner weatherstrip for the rear driver's side door. Where the two ends of the weatherstrip meet (at the gap), I noticed rust coming out as I was waxing the sill. I'm wondering if the lip that the weatherstrip slips onto has rusted underneath. Guess that I had better move replacing that weatherstrip up on my to-do list so that I can see what is going on in that area. :cussing:

Damn, talk about anal...lol
They all do that at some point in time because thats the lowest point of travel for rain water in the door jams....
Break downs, honestly, my RT never broke down all the years I drove it there, the only issue I have ever had was with my stupid ass taking off the mechanical fan on my 3/4 ton ram and installing electric fans. That issue was easily remedied.
There has been some catastrophic failures over the years with I think only 2 cars ever being towed home. We have had some repairs and installs over the years with no issues...
Everyone plays it safe now and when anyone has an issue(as long as it does not involve neutral drop burnouts) everyone tries to pitch in and help.
See ya guys next week!

I think the dealer was a little nervous when 10 of us walked in there and you ran up to the desk and asked for ATF+4 by part number from memory. Good times.

Kids, no neutral drops!

Cheers.
