    Well that's good news! You traveling I mean, not the starter situation. I'm in the middle of tourist season here in Cooperstown so all I've been doing is working and gathering parts I need/want. Just have to get through August and this current bout of Mercury In Retrograde and I should be in decent shape getting my rig running in Sept. ~ peace and good luck to you, glad you are traveling.
    WHAT part is taking weeks to get? ~ peace and curious am I

    It's a few, the fuel sender, air filter, spark plugs, spark leads, distributor cap, and a rotor button. The mecahnic quoted me $980 but I got everything online and at parts places for $360, no joke. It's what I get for being a woman with pride stickers on her van I guess, people assume they can fuck me over.

    Just being a woman without pride stickers or anything else. I know of a few garages in the us run by women only. The founder is putting a lot back into it to teach other women. Mechanical work is not hard at all if you have a good teacher, The electrical can be tricky but still doable. Kinda like Chefs don't bake and Bakers don't cook. Similar trades but a whole different game. Best of luck to ya. ~ peace

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
