I could sure use a bowl of Chicken and Sassage gumbo right about now.
WTB: gumbo, will pay paypal fees and shipping.

I don't think I have enough posts for the classifieds section yet, or I'd strike a deal. Hah

That's why we keep it going here. Or start a build thread on you fairlady project and surely you'll accrue questions and posts swiftly. I want gumbo before mid December. Let's make this happen.

Today I need to work on stripping this dreadful Volvo S80 T6 out, so I can scrap that car out and get it out of my shop in the next few days or so.

I have an 85 Golf GTI, a RHD 1982 Toyota Carina Turbo i brought over from Japan, a 2001 Forester, the Volvo and the Miata in the shop right now. It's frickin' cramped. This is all my stuff too, that's the sad part.

I feel your pain. Size 14 also. There's an art to driving a Miata while wearing size 14 boots. Removing the rubber pads from the clutch and brake pedals and replacing them with pieces of self adhesive non-skid material helps. I used a big non -skid pad from home depot, but skateboard deck tape would probably also work.

I bought a pair of running shoes from Reebok. I think they're called Hexeffect. Not only are they very comfy to wear, but they also solved the pedal problem.

Thanks guys. I feel a little bit better now knowing I am not the only person with this problem LOL

Got my Forester running today. Got it for $ x00 with a busted timing belt. Gotta say, this will be a pretty sweet rig for an all-around daily driver. This is my first scooby - they are not very common down here in South Louisiana, since we don't have stuff like...ice....or snow...
