    I plan to go, it will be mobbed, but...take the niece and MsBee, I hope.

    My trucks works now, inspite of my basic manly desires, I hired it done by my genius car whisperer neighbor.

    It was instinctive, last week it overheated on the freeway, and I knew the head gasket was sli[[ing and leaking...so we decided to have it done rather than me try to do it.

    Good plan, and great timing: there was a fitting that was about to fall off. It could easily have destroyed the engine and stranded me, the radiator was plugged with all the rusty oily gumbo puffed in there by the leaky head gasket, and the head itself had corroded thru under the gasket to the combustion chamber, so new head as well as other necessary parts...$2100 for a $2100 truck, seems fair...but now it will run well and reliably for another 225,000 miles.
    Such a trusty truck to keep going, and well, in spite of the poor head work done only 4 years and 20,000 miles ago by another neighbor.
     There are experts and there are Experts, lucky me to know some.

    This machine kills Fascists.
