Well I guess you can count me out. My t-belt tensioner let loose last night, I think I broke another motor mount, and my starter is now stuck on. Sorry guys, this was looking real promising too since the wife wasn't against it. So now I have two foci down

Man that sucks to hear! Good thing it didn't happen at the track. Start on it now and I'm sure you can have it ready by then

Well I definitely can't make it now. When the mount went it took out a few other things with it. I bent my exhaust and whacked the power steering rack something fierce as it's now leaking. Sorry guys, all funds are going into getting a car back on the road. Can't have two foci down at one time for too long ya know? Here is a pic of what happened to my mount. Split it on the back and front bushings..

Hope there are no other issues in getting her back running.

Thanks me too. Can't stand owning two cars and both are unusable.

The more the merrier, I think that night happens to be Import night as well so he'll be in good company.
