I just got everything done and finished up on my new head gasket today and all i can say is FINALLY! It's been out of commision for the last month and i couldn't wait to get it going again. I've been driving our explorer for the time being and when i took if for a ride tonight an overwhelming sense of happiness rushed over me I'd forgotten how fun and awesome this car. I guess it takes a month of driving a slow, crappy handling ford to get the spark re-lit. Just thought i'd let you guys now how happy i am to be back on the road..
