Nice, but how did the shipping company get the car on its side like that (and did they use plenty of padding)?!

The shipping co was a disaster. I had the car shipped directly to manhattan motorsports in Roslyn, ny to get it checked out, ok.
The guy arrives last night and sleeps in his truck across the street from the shop, then at 6am he unloads the car, windows down, raining and leaves it smack in the middle of the street, running! Then he calls the shop and says the car is outside and boogies, no sign out, inspection, nothing . Feels guilty, swings back around, by now the car is inside, he panics and calls the cops, detectives at my house at 9am, that went over like a turd in a punchbowl w my wife who knew little about the deal. Don't ever use "quality auto shipping".

The tools and pump missing really ticked me off. I told the guy to be sure they were there, he's trying to find them....that's $$$ to replace, if you can find them.

Did your wife come unglued over the car... or the police at your place? The story has a terrific ending btw! You are back in a turbo!
