Hi everyone,I felt the need to re introduce myself after being away so long.

The wagon was on the shelf for a couple of years due to competition with our Motorhome,Children getting married finding ,time off from the Funeral Home and probably a bit of lost interest.

Last year I did the T56 install and 4:56 gears. I love the car more than ever.

It was accepted into the biggest indoor car show in my area happening in April so that has kept me from dealing with the winter blahs detailing it.

Anyway I am also in need of a speed sensor module for a 91 sedan for my father in law.He tells me it is located under the dash.I will post in the parts section, just hoping Fred is still the parts Guru and sees this.

Hope to renew old friendships and catch up on everyone's rides.

Lorne

Welcome back Lorne:

While I no longer own a B/D anymore, I still lurk on here.  Great bunch of guys.

Ended up blowing a head gasket on the LQ9 in the Silverado and just finished replacing those.  Gawd, it was like taking apart the space shuttle.  Took us two afternoons just to gain access to the heads.  How could they use that much wire just to run a pickup truck?

Anyways, good to see you back and as always, interested in your collection of cars, trucks and motorhome (need pics for that one) cheers

How do you like the Bounder?  Carol and I are thinking of "movin on up" but are conflicted as to what, motorhome, 5th wheel or larger travel trailer.  If we stick with the travel trailer the current vehicle would be fine but a 5th would need a bigger truck.  The motorhome is also possible but we would still have to tow another vehicle behind as you do (thinking of the Smartcar if I can make it reliable).  Packing up everything just to go into town for an ice cream is not my idea of a good time.

Most of the stuff we are looking at is simply junk.  However there are exceptions in all three.  Just wondering about the Bounder as it has both advocates and haters.  Even used, these are still a hunk of money so want to be careful.

Hi Lorne

Great to see you back here again. Don't be a stranger. I'm sure if anyone can find that part, it will be Fred K.

Still have our get together in NH in October.

If I remember correctly, and I think I do, Loren's wagon is a 95 but he had a complete 91 red interior including dashboard installed from his beloved 91.

Welcome home Lorne. Since you left, I got rid of all but one wagon as I'm dumping cash into a GMC motorhome now....

Nice to see old faces that were daily names once upon a time.

I tell everyone the wagon is the only one in the fleet that is not going before me,only you guys truly get the passion.

I guess photobucket is ka put, I saw a thread on how to get around it so will see if I can figure it out
