My June Cotm Entry

Recommended Posts

I am tossin up Brown Sally for June COTM

the car:

2000 Mercury Sable LS non premium

3.0 Duratec V6/ 4 speed AXOD Tranny

94,000 miles, purchased when it had 92k on it

this car started out life as a very beaten down sable LS, luckily not driven much, but when it was, it was rodded the s**t out of. and all that would come to a screeching halt november 2010. the day of the final accident.

the rear end. sallys last ride before she would sit for a long ass time

Thats how i acquired it. A poor beaten down sable. this is what backing out of your driveway to go to the mall while texting on your phone looks like, and not seeing that there was a ford tempo driving along, and tempo couldnt stop in time. the tempo SLAMMED into sally doing 40 and this is what resulted...

BUT... all was not lost.

i brought her home, and the next day, i took her carefully to school, and after some 4 hours of figuring a plan of attack, and some "how in the f**k....", this is what we got for a result:

a preliminary pull... we stretched the metal back into rough shape to relieve stress on the glass and other parts, but there was only one solution left:

a rear clip:

so after 2 months of updating, working night and day on her, near non stop, and shedding probably close to a gallon of blood, and many cigarette breaks due to problems or injuries, i took that clip and that car

and made this:

BUMP for my uploaded pics in post #2, and work has temorarily halted on her...

she nearly ate my finger Last sunday. i was trying to replace the sawzalled rear swaybar endlinks, when SNAP. my ratchet broke, and caught my finger on the pinchweld along the underside of the wheel well. no more using a persuasion bar i guess. Got a bad cut down to the bone, on my ring finger on my left hand. no feeling still...angry.gif I was all "****** OW yo!"

Sally, i love you, but when i try to make you handle corners better, PLEASE for the love of FORD, dont eat me!!!! i gave u a pretty ass!!

i like pretty *****...ph34r.gif and you deserves to have it!

anyway, ill put up some more pics in the morning of a 5:00AM wake up...

AND a new Taillight is on the way as well... just gotta save some green to go get it
