because that's what it will take to get my car ready on time.

i've got no chrome.

engine doesn't run.

my new soft top is but a dream.

my replacement leather is still munching clover somewhere.

brakes are not bleeding.

rocker panel seals are on back order.

still haven't found a trailer.

the lady just laughed at me ("your show is WHEN?").

a complete tools kit is just out of reach.

decals are elusive.

i've given up on the thought of correct dot-ology.

and wife just found my repair/parts invoices.

please buy me a drink if/when i get there.
