I got up early yesterday and headed to town for a safety. They didn't like the age of the tires, but let it slide since I had another set at home that will be bolted on after the body work.

Stopped at Mufflerman for an e-test. Everything went well and it passed without any close calls. Two stage idle test is all that's required for the '89.
The best part was watching the 6'4" guy climb in and out of the car. :lol:

Parked at Tim Horton's and had a bagel.

It's all a bit surreal still. I put on about 30kms yesterday without any issues, which is a load off my mind. The alignment is still a bit out of whack since the PO replaced the steering rack, so I'm not getting a complete feel for the car yet. The climate control unit thermostat fan has a whine once in a while (common), so I'll be pulling that out and greasing it. The power steering made a little noise at the beginning, but quieted down through the morning. A bit of bearing noise or possibly a sticky e-brake cable, it died down after a few kms as well. The car has been in storage for around 8-10 years, so it may just need to be run to loosen everything up a bit.

Suspension, alignment and paint to be done in the next 4-5 weeks. I'm expecting the coils in the next 3-4 weeks. I'm not in a huge rush for paint since I'll be aligning the shop time with our moving period so the car is out of the way. Still, I'm super tempted to get it into the paint shop right now and having it a week leading up to the move. It would just get in the way though, so I'll stay patient.

Saw a bearded dude driving a red 964 (@ Westmount & Union) the other day, thought it was you, but it was on D90s and he was chubby.

This is a great update. :)
Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

I was asked to do an article a few months ago for the W9O group. I thought for sure this was a bad idea, given my overall tounge-tied nature. But, it turned out pretty good I think!
