    DW, He didn't even slow down when he hit the cholla, that sucker blew into a million pieces. The TH350 blew a gasket thinkin about that "Arizona Hottie" I'll bet.

    I looked for you at the gas stations and up and down the street. Didn't see ya though... I live right down the street from there and saw it.... Looked for your pager number that you gave me when I got the soft top, but I must have lost it.... Called "blazekraze" to see if he had it but only had numbers at home.

    Yea Yea,

    I'm the one who dragged his blazer home this morning. I too was amazed that the green machine broke down on the pavement.

    Kinda funny towing the blazer with my dodge....

    Tranny cooler mounted but not hooked up yet, this weekend project. Having the trannie flushed on friday and the airbags and new shocks installed, oil changed and rear end fluids changed. Need to get off my a@@ and hook up the hosed for the trannie cooler.
