      It should've finished processing by now. Try again in a little bit.

            it's wierd to hear members talk. Now when I read the threads or replies by George, I'll know how to make the dialouge sound in my head
            Congrats on the 100000! My car rolled over to 224000kms this weekend, thats... a little less than139200miles.

              I'm sitting at 99400 right now with a 5-digit odometer, I'll post my own video very soon when it shows 00000. Then I have my own brand new car!....... >_<

              Edit: Just watched video. I had an 88 Celeb wagon with the 2.8 that had rolled over 200K just before it went kaput, and it started like yours did even in the most ridiculous WI weather. You take off a hell of a lot quicker than I ever did haha, but to each their own. What happened to the cigarette lighter? Sick of blowing fuses? Something I noticed and I'm wondering about, it sounds like you have some major engine braking until you decelerate to around 20 MPH, as if the TCC engages very very early, what's up with that?

                Very nice, I just passed 225,000 tonight! What made the 2.8 crack the block?
                What is this & what does pulling it out do?

                  You gotta in Las Vegas traffic. No one gives you a chance, you just gotta take the lane, especially at the time of day it was (rush hour). Well, that and my last car and namesake (90 6000) had a Duke, and accelerating was like putting your foot in a bowl of pudding.

                  I tried to use a car charger for my phone and as soon as I attached my phone it blew the outlet and popped the courtesy fuse. As for the "engine braking," the TCC engages around 36 mph, but if I coast the transmission likes to hang on to third gear well below 20 mph, sometimes even as low as 17. I think that sound might be a hub bearing on its way out. Does it sound like that to you?

                  Don't know. Rhett didn't go into it too much. I think it was oil starved or something.

                  You'll probably find it even more amusing if you go back and read some of my other threads and posts with my voice in your head.
