Hi guys.

I brought Vinny to the vet to be put down. She said he probably had a brain tumor and he needed to rest. We had 13 great years together!

RIP, Vinny! :salute:

Thanks, guys.

We'll be fine. He didn't know who he was or where he was. So, now he waits for me upstairs!

They say crying is good for you - I hope so! :)

Vinny rode in my '03 Mach1 and '07 GT - - I had to put a sofa cushion on the passenger floor so he could stretch out!

He also rode in my: '98 F-150, '01 Miata, '01 Ranger, '04 Volvo, and '05 350Z! :rockon:

My posse at the Bank has my back - I've got 3 Christmas dinner invites! So much food, so little time!

Sorry to learn about Vinny. After a couple dozen such partings - it doesn't get any easier. But I'd never do without a canine companion or three.

Changing my rims/tires plan! :hysterical:

I'm going to just replace the rear rims with the '10 rims that look very similar to what I have. And they're 10" rims -- and I'll put some M/T 305x40 DR's on them. Then - spend the rest on the CAI and SCT tune. :rockon:

Interesting what the engineer on the Boss 302 project had to say about the CAI in the '13s: look at about 4:40 et seq. Seems to me it might be worth trying the tune without the hardware.
