Rebuilt Transmission Coming Tuesday

I just received an e-mail from Greg Robbins that he shipped a rebuilt transmission to me via UPS and it should arrive next Tuesday! The UPS tracking number concurs with this.

This will be a good time to get back into the swing of things since my girlfriend Krista is starting classes next week and the holidays are winding down. Working in the garage is a bit slow since it's cold and rainy, but I should be able to get things put together.

I want to issue a big thanks to all the folks at that expressed support and advice in my pursuit to fix the transmission. The electrical plug-in station at work has been lonely over the past few months and I'll be psyched to get the car back on the road.

About a month ago, I sold my old '94 gasoline Saturn wagon and purchased an '03 Subaru Outback. It's much more comfortable and handles the snow quite well (went snow-shoeing twice), but it's got significantly lower gas mileage (about 26 instead of 32). With gas prices going up, I'm even more eager to fire up the 914.

I'm glad to see Ross Cunniff and Matt Kneipper get their AC 914 conversions on the road as well.

May all have a Happy New Year.

Tim, that's very cool - looking forward to you having your car back on the road!

And, Matt, congrats (and, you need to update your blog :-)

My car has been driven out of my driveway and turned around so the windshield installer can put that in. I'm painting the doors this weekend. Then I'll be on the road.
