Well if it makes you feel better when I left Santa Fe this morning it was 1 degree. Yes that is correct, coldest night this winter for S. Fe. Didn't get above freezing until we dropped down out of Flagstaff toward Scotts. Yes NYC can be bitter cold with the wind, but there is always something fun to do or heaven forbid shop!

Amateurs.




And by the way, I have a near complete intact 126 that I am going to start parting out so should you need anything, it has no rust.
What's the color of the interior? Mine is gray and I will need to eventually replace the driver and passenger seats or just the leather. Maybe the steering box.

The one in the junkyard had black interior that is not in bad shape, do you think I should pull it then eBay it?

Garage
Drew...2:30ish?

I can't get there before that. I'm off to work now so I won't know til then.



Wear the mask so I'll recognize you. Or just walk in with your head in profile, either way is good.

I'll be the guy with the basketball for a head.

Of course, this all depends on the relief manager showing up on time.

$150k for a friggin' brown hemi? Seriously?

One born every minute, I guess. Watching this gives proof that the economy is doing just fine.

The interior is gray. I also have an extra set of gray front seats. I really think, however that with any of these 20 year old seats that new skins are the way to go. I got a guy in SoCal that will do the fronts for $700 with the same material [he does the skins for Performance]

I also have a new in box set of black carpet that I was going to use in the car if I redid it but just decided not to do that car.

No, proof that there is a small collection of folks with too much money. I still bet the total receipts [per vehicle average] will be down this year. This silliness can't continue to go up at those auctions.
