I'm sure we'll get together at some point. we have a decent size backyard and a grill. Maybe we should have a meet at my place. Also, i'll be looking for someone to help me with a line output converter install, if you know anything about car audio. I'm keeping the stock single cd, but i will be adding an amp and sub as well. We are going to be having a yard/parking lot sale in june sometime. We are looking to move as well, hopefully to a house we can rent. It's tough with a baby, one income and a new $500 payment for car/ins. but we manage. :D

Hey everyone. New member here up in Alexandria, MN. Just bought a silver 93 3.0 vulcan gl wagon here. Great condition for its age and roads. 126000miles, and 1 little dime size rust spot under rear door.
It came w a radiator leak,pulled myself, fixed. got rear wiper running again(wiring), new fram tough guard air filter. new wiper blades all around. Rear window defroster didn't work, (wiring) fixed it. Replaced side marker lightbulb. Cinched up rubber door seals to tighten seal and quiet wind noise in top corner of front doors (big noise difference, check yours). Found 1 rusty spot on steel tranny cooler line under the radiator caused by the rusty steel retaining bracket whick gave way when I took out radiator, replaced 1 and 1/2 foot of rubber tran hose.
This spring I plan on tranny flush, adding aux tranny cooler and a new fuel filter. maby new plugs and wires. Oh yeah, rear and back tinting. Gonna wait for it to warm up a bit. did the radiator at -5 below.
Well I travel all over in the summer to disc golf tournaments and the state aquired my last car a year ago: a west coast rust free 79 245dl mustard yellow volvo, so I'm happy to be out and about driving again (and happy I ran across another wagon). Looking at stereo systems next...

I miss the drive in theater in Woodbury, I wonder if it's still there? I know they closed 65-hi in Blaine-I remember sneaking in there in a trunk when I was 14, I later come to find out my parents did the same thing when they were kids, same drive in-tradition :rofl2:

I might go up there (in summer) to visit family, I'll have to go to Vali-Hi while I'm there in a rent-a-Taurus, I wonder if they still let you BBQ? A drive in theater would make an interesting place for a meet, tailgate party style! I think Minneapolis is one of few cities that have a skyway system-it's needed for the cold!
