    Back into the garage tonight. Welding the exhaust tips back together, and hopefully putting the wiper cowl and all that their stuff back on.

    RIP Tank of Justice II.
    You were tons of fun. I had many fun road trips and a few cross-country trips. I learned an infinite amount from you. But now it's time to go to that junkyard in the sky. There's too much rust, and other issues.

    Onwards, to:
    Tank of Justice III
    The next chapter begins shortly.

    Wait, so in a matter of five hours you went from putting her back together to scrapping her? Just how big of a rust monster did you find hiding, and where? I'm having a deja-vu here about a certain wagon... I did show you that clusterfuck during SF, right?

    Yes you did, lol.

    I knew it was bad. And it was getting there fast. I was trying to make it last two more years, so that it would have hit 300k and the Navigator would be paid off. But I've run out of time and patience. Plus a new one that doesn't have alllllll the issues would be a bit nicer.....
    I also may have had a rust free 97 Crown Vic with a bad motor, essentially dropped in my lap last night.
    So, engine swap and off I go.
    I will be pulling a ton of parts off the TOJ2.

    That '97 Crown Vic, does it happen to have come from Arizona, and you acquired it via Mr. Cemetery Gates? lol

    But yes, I think your plan certainly sounds like a plan Hopefully no surprises pop up, I really hate it when that Murphy asshole stops by to visit.

    Oil spray or whatever you guys do to attempt to keep the rust at bay on the new one. Would be a shame to see a rust free car vanish faster than it has to.
