    I sold my '07 TC Executive L on Tuesday with 199,500 miles and picked up my '11 on Tuesday. It took 2 days because Ford was wasted much of Tuesday and part of Wednesday checking the credit for Home James Inc., not Home James! Inc. even though they were given my address, amongst other things...

    But I sold my TC in West Orange, NJ and the buyer drove me 20 miles north to Wayne, NJ which is one of the rare Lincoln fleet dealers who have TCs in stock. And my friend lives in Staten Island so I had a place to stay for a couple days.
    Home James! Inc. That is brilliant! How is it I never knew this? That should be your user title.
    And there are all kinds of folks listing their non-Cadillacs under the cadillacs they drive. I chose not to.

    Like me!


    Anywho...

    Today marks one year of wagon ownership for me. This is awesome. So to celebrate, I did a few things:

    New brake calipers and pads. They were bad. Really bad, and one of the calipers got stuck, so I replaced them both. Total cost? Under $50.
    New hood struts. Now the hood stays up and won't eat me! Yay! Total cost? $0. These were a gift from dad.
    Fixed an exhaust leak that my dad found. Two of the bolts down by the header collector were gone, and one was broken. Took the broken bolt in, matched some up, replaced. Total cost? $10.

    Other miscellaneous expenses included two cans of brake clean (only needed one), a bottle of brake fluid, and a large container of Gojo soap. Misc. cost? $10.

    So for $80 I can now stop, work on my car without getting eaten, and now, unfortunately, it's much MUCH quieter. Needs duals next Christmas break FOR SURE. I'll take a video of the newer quiet exhaust today.

    Yep! Had fun with the car and with dad.

    Next project: oil cooler lines to stop my oil leak, and then figure out how to swap my seats around....

    sounds like alot of work, especially for someone who does not like wagons

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    .............to the car, nothing. Hauled down my spare intake manifold and set of injectors. Scoped out the injector spray holes (4) in a slight rectangular pattern - 2 holes (jets ?) for each side of the two-valve port. Considered playing with a Dremel tool and fairing in the lower section of the injector bosses to improve airflow through the spray pattern into the siamesed ports........see the flat area just on the port side of the manifold injector boss ? A little fairing and polishing...........

    Air horns baby! Nothing too serious, it's a cheap little electric kit, but it actually sounds like a proper horn now, and it's quite loud. For what I paid ($12) I'm quite impressed.

    Will take a video of that (and the new quieter exhaust) today sometime hopefully.
