That's scary! Hope things get better soon Scott.


Yeah me too! I'm now back to 6 cars. My driveway looks like a salvage yard. I have a smashed Aztek (we bought it back), her "new" Aztek (same year, different color, lower miles, leather), the Camaro, my '97 and '98 Rivs, and my Jimmy.

I'm going to gut the smashed Aztek and sell pieces. I can probably bank $1,000 or better on the entire powertrain, rear end included. I also have to take all the front lenses and headlamps out and transfer them to the new one. The new ones are faded/yellow. I also want to transfer over the new struts/mounts, shocks, alternator, etc etc .

Talking to the woman, I can buy a hoist for the garage. It's going to be years before I can build a separate garage for all my car stuff, but I do have room for a small hoist in the main garage. I think I'm going to get one of those scissor lift hoists that are portable. After talking to our hoist guys at work (I've known them for 10 years), he'll hook me up with one. 110V, 6,000lb 48"-54" lift height. That gives me enough room to drop cradles and engines. I seriously need to sort these cars out. After the Aztek is gone, I can start ripping the '98 apart.

I know I've said this before, but I'm very, VERY close to driving the '97. The itch is getting pretty bad. The cards I've been dealt in the last couple years haven't involved either Riv mad
The garage almost has space now. But, at least all of my Riv parts are located in one spot now. I have a pile of boxes in the garage with all the new stuff, and an engine sitting on the floor. The house is finally taking shape, so I think I can insure and plate the '97......the pool is done, had 3 130' Oaks cut down, and 7 more trimmed.

I'm thinking that I should, at the very minimum, just drive it. It won't rot as fast that way. I keep having to fill up the passenger rear tire, as it goes flat in 4 days. Got a 100' hose on my compressor to reach it lol.
So many projects. I wish I had a magic wand popcorn

EDIT: Annnnnnnddddd I'm back at the Dealer. Other place didn't work out so well......
