    It actually has the whole mp2. Not just the fifth gear. Bought it with it in it. So essentially the only difference in the two is the engine, slight tire difference, an the white one being lowered on the springs.

    Went 218 Miles down an part way back from where they were at.

    Checked all the tires an oil an junk. Both ran with a/c's on the whole time with the cruise's set to about 65 most of the time. Bout 40-50 miles blazin down the interstate at 75..

    The white single cam took 5.7 gallons while the gold took 5.3..
    comes out bein-
    41.13 on the gold
    38.24 on the white one.

    Not far off. But the twin cam sure does pull the hills a lot better. That's where I think it made up the most ground against the single.
    Startin to think I should've/should build a stockish twin cam for the white one.lol.

    Well.. I did the Wyoming trip.. ended up getting shorted 135 miles. Really pissed me off. I finally get a high dollar trip I keep hearing about, then get shorted 175$..
    was a 1200 mile round trip. The worst mileage I got out in the big hills was 36 the best I got was out on the interstate at 60-65 was 44..




    Pretty cool driveway/backroad where we dropped it off.



    I29 has a speed limit of 80mph.. that was fun tryin to keep up speed through them long steep hills.


    Then after all the disappointment.. it sure looked like chimney rock was givin me the finger. Lol




    That was actually a while ago, just never got around to updating.


    But it's not lookin good anymore. "My" truck driver, the asshole, 2 timing, cheap ass fucker.. chose to use his young ,cheap , Colorado escort to take him around the loop and into Colorado. They were about 2 blocks to drop off and caught the power lines.. his dumbass escort didn't see it an they tore about 3 poles down, plus a copacitor or something an killed power to the whole town.(I'm told about 2k people).. so needless to say, they get a court date. "My" driver will probably be fired.(second wreck this year, last one I wasn't there either). And the way it sounds, is the company might be denied to haul out there anymore...

    So,,, shits lookin like shit... dad had a trip today out to the Colorado line. So they're still haulin that way. But for how long. Idk... but I do know I should probably find some different work to get by.

    Well, dug the wagon out of the barn couple days ago after sitting for a couple months.

    The front drivers strut/spring rubber or whatever started squeekin.

    Battery keeps dying. Has a parasitic draw I believe from my overhead counsel.

    An my wires broke at the plug to my mic. Lol. No idea how that one happened just sittin.


    But ounce I get these little issues sorted I wanna get a high output alt, an put my subs an amp in, An get the windows tinted for this next round.



    Went to Topeka yesterday after I checked everything over. Bout 450 mile round trip. Still managed 40mpg, but felt it should of been better. Forgot how good this thing drives compared to my big dodge. Was nice to get out again.







    Had a little trouble tryin to get the half in to where they wanted it.. so they brought out the reinforcement.lol

    Ohh, and I sold my gold wagon this last weekend to the ol' lady's cousin cause their f150 took a shit on him. So now I'm back down to just my white wagon now.

    Been a while since I updated.
    Car still runs good. Got a knock sensor code about 3,000 miles ago, but hasn't come back. Although it is noisier than the one that froze up before. And burns more oil. Has a little over 187k on the odo, so I got about 20k overall on it since I got it. And about 10k on the motor Since I put it in.

    Been using it for a daily work car now. Got me a new job sandblasting and setting memorials/monuments. Mainly grave stones. Bout a 30 mile trip one way. Kinda nice knowing when I'm gonna work, and when a check comes in. Hopin to save up an buy me a dual cam parts car with a shot trans or somethin like that an get it changed over. But for now. She's a trooper.





    The shop rig. Lol. Lame ass ford
