      I drove my fox over a hundred miles today, because the Bay Bridge was closed. Went to see this 86 BMW 325e. The car made my fox seem like a veyron

      Is the york-branded part an AC compressor?
      Thanks for the pictures. I want a Dasher with two doors.
      (sheriff)Early, I though you said this was a drug possum.
      (Early) Sure, I drug him from the ditch.
      (sheriff) I wish you told me that before you sold him to me.

      I hate you Cali people and your junkyards with actual VWs. I'm lucky if the Pull-a-Part here has one at a time.
      I did see an interesting non-VW junkyard find today...

      And for what I've done to the Fox...

      pulled the exhaust manifolds

      Gave her a good vacuuming for the first time since ownership. $3.00 later at a gas station with a vacuum and she looks like a 1000 bucks!

      Parked it for the day. Actually drove the MKII. I figured I should drive it (MKII) for a few days to make sure it's still a viable car for when I tear into the Fox. I spent several days on the MKII doing the exhaust and shifter rebuild crap. It really made me hate the VW transverse motor all over again.

      Wish we had yards like the ones in CA and OK. That Lear Fan is extremely rare... but then so are the VWs...

      went to the oakland pnp today. didn't see the blue fox for some reason. it had good mirrors I wanted. did see a mint 1990 white fox gl 4dr with only 68k on it. not sure why it's in there. interior is great, exterior is great. both mirrors were busted though. cluster looks great. has two sets of keys to it in the trunk keyhole. even had the same aftermarket wheel covers as on mine. practically identical except it's a california model

      More DPR fun....I replaced the JY DPR with the original part. It runs much better AND I read some mA current too!

      Any chance this had the Alternator Bracket on the other side?
      Any chance you'd like to pull it for me?

      I did things I shouldn't have with my manual boost controller... Why does the increase in boost from 6 to 10 pounds feel so disproportionately... Fun?
      OK. Back to 6, just to be safe...
      I also got a really groovy Fox sticker from Brazil.

      Yesterday, I used a squeegee to wipe all the condensation from the side windows while the wagon was taking a moment to have a little warm-up idle in preparation for the commute to work. Then I broke the door handle when I tried to get it and go... Nothing like a Monday morning where you have to break into your car with a coat hanger while it's idling at the curb.

      What a bummer, I always carry a spare key inside my wallet, and bought a set of door handles from eBay that have held on well for the last 3 years [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] .

      See, Damon, if you lived here you could just leave your doors unlocked. Broken door handles are less of an issue when the other door is already unlocked.

      I haven't locked the doors in about a decade. Well, unless I'm someplace 'high risk' like a mall or something. Of course, I don't have anything worth stealing inside the car.
