Just ordered a complete engine gasket set, all new vacuum lines, vsv's, hoses, belts, power steering lines, plugs & tune up items for Christine.

My Memorial weekend project is to make her as clean under the hood and underneath as she is on the outside. This car has about 189,000 miles on it, so some things under the hood are just worn out from age. Plus there's a lot of road grit and general gunk buildup. There's a tiny power steering leak I've been ignoring for a couple of years, and it's finally time to deal with it. Going to be a lot of scrubbing and degreasing going on.

Nice, she is beautiful on the outside. That's amazing that she has close to 200k, from that picture I would have guessed it was a low mileage car. You did a great job keeping it clean. Plan to post any before and after pictures?

Definitely a gorgeous example of a MKIV... I can't wait to see the results of the clean up

I'm pretty sure he traded it in and bought DT two new horses and a brand new set of paints and brushes. Just a rumor I heard.
