We had plenty of assorted crap to take ;-).  I'm getting even more
of it now that I'm starting my MBA.  I took the GMAT Saturday.

If it's in decent shape and doesn't smoke, and runs right, that's
all I know to look for.

All I'm really worried about right now is stock wheels, and an 86
computer.  If you have a chance at a good deal on some wheels/lug
nuts or a computer, feel free.  I also want to get a Tbird intercooler,
but you knew that ;-).

Wow, I can't believe you're actually gonna do it ;-).  Like I said, my
SVO is my first and only car, and I'm almost 30.  Buying and selling
cars frequently would be a strange thing for me.

Hmm...I'll talk to him.  Thanks for letting me know...I might do 
something else that day, instead.  I don't really care that much
about competition.

Cool, talk to you later...
