Hey Bob, I remember working on the vette and the disappointment in finding the trans toast. I liked working on other peoples cars because it meant my was running . There was a race where the Brannan Boys brought out an old Plymonth/Dodge Super Stocker on a trailer. They asked if you wanted to race so you went into your car negotiating mode. They look at you with a quizical look and say' "But we want cars?" It was some ridiculous amount but you did it....It was on the Simi Freeway.
