All parts accounted for, let’s make it run!

We took the left side hub and strut (this is the right)So we finally got the rest of the running parts at the junkyard.

Do they work?! We have no idea!! But they should be the right parts,, maybe.

The best part is we couldn’t have found them without the wisdom and knowledge provided by the great Murilee Martin of Jalopnik, whose sage advice and rockin tunes always bring us delight and remind us to have a beer and cheer for our Oakland A’s.

At Pick n Pull, we met a cool guy named Dennis (who may buy our seats!) who took the tranny from the same car. He was a blast!

This weekend we’ll be blasting it back in Patterson hopefully to turn a wheel in a modicum of anger for the first time. The level of excitement we’ll experience at that point in time,, well, we’ll put it on video, so don’t worry (if it doesn’t blow up).dashboard loveliness

Also we’re starting to get racing gear. Look for the next post to show us humans in driving gear!

Finally, thursday (this thursday 3-27-08) we’ll be at gokartracer, well, go karting. It’s enduro night, if you’re a lemons head, or just a driving nut, show up, say Hi, have fun!

Cheers!
