An anonymous comment with no signature... Who are you? (just curious)

If you read a few entries back in my journal, you'll see that the car is getting a lot of work done. Today is the day it's going in for the engine rebuild and supercharger.

Is an "Engine Pull" anything like a Taffy Pull?

I hope not... Engines aren't supposed to stretch...

I thought there was going to be video documentation of the event!
equiraptor From: equiraptor Date: June 14th, 2005 11:16 am (UTC) (Link)
Because Nugget can really stand around holding a video camera for two weeks... Because we really have enough tapes for two weeks worth of video footage...

The only part that was ever likely to be documented was the final portion of rebuilding the engine and bolting on the supercharger. There's no way the stuff at the machine shop is going to be filmed.

Hey, they do it on Monster Garage every week!
equiraptor From: equiraptor Date: June 14th, 2005 11:19 am (UTC) (Link)
And they're paid to do it. Neither Nugget nor I would be paid to film this.
decibel45 From: decibel45 Date: June 14th, 2005 11:39 am (UTC) (Link)
Pfff.
equiraptor From: equiraptor Date: June 14th, 2005 11:40 am (UTC) (Link)
So you're volunteering to film it?
decibel45 From: decibel45 Date: June 14th, 2005 11:42 am (UTC) (Link)
No... I already know what it looks like to do all of this. :P
equiraptor From: equiraptor Date: June 14th, 2005 11:43 am (UTC) (Link)
Then why all the fuss?
decibel45 From: decibel45 Date: June 14th, 2005 11:45 am (UTC) (Link)
Because it's what we Cats Do.

Actually, if I knew the guys doing it I might have gone over to help/video.

So jealous of you: your car goes to the shop for the simple reason that you choose to send it there. SO JEALOUS!
