Well,... I'm done.

I put everything back together and changed the oil again. I use 15W Mobil1,... again. I love that stuff. I made sure that everything was perfect then took her off the bricks/stands and pulled her into the street. GOD,... how I miss her and how I WILL miss her Anyways,... I took off! I drove her nice and slow at first around the block a couple of times just to make sure that everything was ok. I then ventured out. CRAP, she is running goooood. She is soooo BUFF. She sounds very BASS like, crisp, hardcore. GOD. She drove flawlessly. Idling at exactly 800rpm. She maintained a nice low temp the whole time and its a nice 70 degrees outside right now. I had ALL the windows open and the sunroof up with the wind blowing in my hair?!?!? Beats sitting at the top of a hill britwrench. I drove her and drove her some more. I drove her for a good hour!!! I couldnt let go!!! I took her on a highway and brought her up to speed and rpm and she was quick!!!! Very nice. After the ride the check the coolant which was clean and green. I checked all the plug which were clean too. She had great oil pressure the whole time. Selling her is going to suck. ALSO!!! ALL in one day I saw a sweet red 924 in perfect condition on the road!!! I never saw one so nice before!!!! I also saw a beautiful red 944na as I was pulling out from this street, I waved and so did he!!! When I got that wave back it hit me like a ton of brick!!!! I felt wierd. I dont know. I am going to miss her.

Some people are like Slinkies. Not really good for anything, but you
still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.
