Just temporarlly though!!!
I towed the Vette down south last weekend getting some new fiberglass,
Fixing some cracks and a fresh coat (or 8) of paint. Engine and trans came
out this week, both getting a good work over. Mainly the tranny engine is
just being "freshened up" a little. A majority of work is going into the
transmission, A new rebuild shift kit and a new torque converter. So much
for the nickle and dime stuff now shes going for the BIG bills!!!... Noone
told me about this!!!!
Don't think so unless I come onto you the second time around, can't
even see you in the rear view mirror. Oh, I get it, you think all of
the cars in front of you are that far behind you????? Throw out
something that is more brilliant than your last post, anything with
more than one letter will do.
OK Ass Wipe, you need to try and follow along, if you are going to make such
a feeble attempt at chastising someone for something, at least get it right.
Again, try and follow along...
Here is one more hint, since I just know it's still going right over your
head, If you are going to pick at details, you better pay attention to them
Sparing with you is kinda like having an ass kicking contest with a one
The easiest way to follow along is to delete all the previous text out
except what the person you are responding to said.
Freshen up. No, completely a non-automotive term. It is never used. Ever.
(I'll spell out that this is sarcasm so you can follow along.)
Race engines have been "freshened up" for years. You run a season, a few
hard weekends, whatever, and freshen the engine up to keep peak power. You
don't need a full rebuild, because in that time, you may have put only 10
miles on it in drag racing or a few hundred in road racing, but you still
want it at its freshest. It won't have enough wear to merit boring, hot
tanking, replacing all the parts, but it might need a valve job to keep the
top end tight or it might need bearings because oil pressure was down in
certain corners, but the rest stays put.
Now some of the top racing classes do essentially a full rebuild between
rounds, but they are playing for more money than most.
Don't come in arguing with Dad, you will usually lose.

Funny, at lunch I was reading an older issue of Hemming's Muscle
Machines and saw the term used in there twice. I wouldn't have given
it a second thought if I hadn't previously read this Bozo's post...
