Hey guess who is back!

Post by deathbypsi » Tue Feb 16, 2010 9:24 pm

Well I knew I couldnt stay away forever....

Looks like this weekend I will be a Merkur owner once again. And the funny part is it will be my same black 85 I sold in Nov 08 !! Yes my sweet little Euroturd will be mine once again. I have been missing this car since the day it drove off and now in a chain of weird circumstances it will be mine again....however it will not be drivable.

I am greatful I sold to who I did because Ray took very good care of it as far I can tell and she still looks the same as when I had it. Looking forward to fixing some minor engine issues and getting back behind the wheel.

Oh fer cryin' out loud... what's the matter with you? Can't you just let bygones be bygones, break from the past, turn over a new leaf?

Well-- neither can I! :lol: Welcome home to the happy addiction! :cheers

I can't tell you how nice it feels to have a Merk in my garage again... but then, I don't have to, do I!

Jason, you sold the white car?????? Dam Im gonna miss seeing that thing at Norwalk!

Just a few days ago a bunch of us got into a disscussion about old cars we wish we never would of sold on another board and not 24hrs later I see my XR go up for sale! Fate? :lol:

I have been promising my lady that this summer I would build her something to go racing in after I finished my turbo Ranger {408,75mm} and was kinda leaning towards a 2.3t foxbody for an excuse to get back into these.....just never thought it would be with my very own XR! I put soo much time and work into that car that there really are only a couple areas I would like to improve upon and then I can turn her loose in it.

Congrats! I was in line right behind you with Ray, if you declined on it I was ready to pick it up this weekend, lol. Glad to see you got her back and seems like it should be an easy fix to get her going again.

All's good for me though, I am picking up an 87 tomorrow for my wife to have a toy along-side mine :D

Jason, I just wanted to say that was very cool of you and Ray both to agree to give me first dibs at it, not many people would do that.

No problem man, I know how much history you have with that car and how it's pained you to be away from it. These cars gain part of your soul after a while I swear it!
