Tonight I have made the decision to try and buy a place to move my Auto repair shop to as I am sick of the emotion rollercoaster my landlord has me on due to his messed up Family

One of the best things you can do for yourself, is to eliminate as many variables as you can, good luck..

I agree that it will be the best thing to get some stability and I know it is not going to be all great and perfect .

today when I had some time at the end of the day I played with the fiero and tried to figure out why the tachometer is not working and it looks like my new tach has craped out on me but with the weather getting better I am starting to get more interested in getting this out on the road so I will start working on it again bit by bit

I think I cursed myself by putting the snowblower in the shed. I had to get it back out on thursday and again today. I left it in the garage this time but maybe we have seen the end of the snow according to the forecast.

I know one thing the car feels fast and i know it is not going to be the fastest or as fast as some of those turbo 3800 v6 cars but i am sure it will catch allot of those Mustangs , Corvettes & Camaros off guard it is going to be fun.
