I stubbed my toe on a kick ass 95 trippple black and NO vinyl Fleetwood last night and I'm dangerously close to limping it the 2.5 miles home.

Tinted windows, DVD, amp, subs, flowmaster exhaust, 20's wit new tires, etc, so forth. This bitch is THE hotness.

It needs a tranny though.

Do you guys have any advice regarding how to hide a shiney black fleetwood in the middle of a snow covered back yard - THEN explain to your wife that you spent money you didn't have on a car that needs expensive fixing, and that you bought it to replace your current car that still isn't sold yet - and ALSO needs fixing?

Thanks in advance for your help and support.

Should be pretty easy to hide. Talk to your buddy Crovo. I hear he's pretty good with rattle can spray jobs. Just find some flat... uh.. er. SATIN white.

As to the repairs. Um, using two broken cars to make one good one?

Sadly - My first broken car cannot be a tranny donor at this time. It's the t56 caprice, and I need it problem free before I sell it to anybody so that I can sleep at night.

I'd love to show Crovo how to build a t56 Fleetwood, but then I'd still need a trans in th caprice and still .... well, you understand.

I DO like the satin white idea though. We do have a big pine tree back there. Mebby I could either park it there or hide it behind our RV.

Buy it! I bought mine cheap and fixed the tranny, I had it built professionally, Raybesto's clutches, Kevlar band, stall, etc...Hide it some where, storage unit, friends house, park it in a parking lot where they dont tow vehicles, join us!

Wait a minute... WHAT did you just say?!?!?!?!?!

That's it... You're on your own with the damn satin paint. You'll have to figure out it's Rustoleum all by yourself...
