Both are issues are are easy fixes. Get yourself a good secondary air pump from Woody and save yourself a bundle.

Because I have spent almost 10K getting it up to shape. She runs perfect. She brings a smile to my face when driving her.

Still owe a bit before she is mine (By the end of the year she will be).

Did NOT want two car payments (Although I could afford it).

My 15yo son wants Dad to pass it on to him next year LOL.

p.s. spent 6 months in Tampa with Special Operations Command Central. Loved it.

That's awesome your keeping it and passing it along to your son. I was going to say, you've spent so much getting it up to your standards. People don't spend that kind of money and labor if they don't love the car.

Thanks for your service. Yes, been to McDill many times entertaining (I'm a musician) the command and the refueling air wing stationed there. I love the golf course and the sunsets!
