I has a car again! After several weeks in the shop, my beloved Mustang is back with me again. The Mustang shop I purchased the instrument cluster from had to ship THREE of them -- the first two turned out to be non-working and finally I got fed up and put the repair shop in touch with the Mustang shop, to tell them what to look for before shipping. Apparently the little gears that drive a '98 Mustang's odometer break very easily and the first two both had broken gears, the same as my original odometer.

Now my poor car shows that it's racked up 180K miles because the working instrument cluster had the highest odometer reading of all four involved. Wahhhh! At least the repair shop made a notation of the original mileage and the difference between it and the mileage shown, so I'll have some proof if and when I finally sell the car.

Anyway, it's nice to be mobile again.

How's your week going?

Speaking of being mobile, do you have a new address? My holiday card came back as return to sender forward expired, so figured I should update my list :-)
