Comment by James Tennier
39 years is almost pushing it, I would say... You know it's too long
when you forget what it's doing in the garage.
My GMC Sprint (74) put aside for retirement project in 03. Began by
placing engine in the shop in Oct 2010. Four failures (over 2 tanks of
gas) and many $thousands later, into all aspects of restoring the damn
thing. (see FLICKER James Tennier) I'm awaiting "arbitration" to
refund the engine builders total of >$20,000.00 to build a '79 OLDS
403 making streetable 403 hp.
Still waiting, but 39 years? Hopefully I'll be long dead. Good Luck.
