    Introduction from new SC owner

    Lee, please accept my condolences. I'm here in Portland and while Kne and I never met - I can say that I know Ken would more than approve of you taking such great care of his car. That road trip was a fitting tribute.

    What's your biggest ever "screw up" while working on your SC?

    Broke a chunk of bellhousing off the trans doing the engine r&r on the 91 SC. Just left it like that though. Don't tell anyone.

    Message in a bottle

    Here is a picture from when I first found Thumper sad and lonely at the donation lot, paying 800 bucks...down from the 1000 they were asking. Got a call over the weekend from Thumpers original owner. (See prior post where I mailed him the credit card from 1992 that I found in the door cavity)...

    Message in a bottle

    Dear Mr. Zilke, Please see the enclosed Chevron Travel credit card I believe belongs to you. I found it deep inside the driver’s door framework of my 1991 Supercoupe while performing some stereo and soundproofing upgrades. It’s unfortunate that your old gas card most likely can’t buy you gas...

    I work in Vancouver (off of 4th Plain) - Let me know if you need any help. I did the engine complete on my 91 SC "Thumper" in the space of 2 months and a couple of weekends. If i had waited it would still be in my driveway as well. Would love to swing by one day, even if it just to chat.

    Still super smokey here in PDX, maybe even worse this morning, and its not much better inside. My son and I worked outside on the Supercoupe all weekend and got the engine finished. The filthy air made the last part of this repair a little unpleasant. Couple details to tidy up - but runs good...

    Exaust Manifold Gasket Question - stock manifold

    Dumb question and I should know this. When I took the engine apart a month or two ago Im pretty sure I remember there being no exhaust manifold gaskets on the factory exhaust manifolds.
