I think they broke the mold when they made the 2nd gen mx6, nice lines gr8 engine cool.gif

I think you're right there.. the more I see them, the more I just think they're sweet cool.gif I'll be sure to whisper your kind words to her when she gets a wax. Red's beautiful but silver (like your baby - which is also very sweet, btw!) would have been my second choice, followed by blue.

I hope your ticking isn't indicative of impending explosion - any little box under your car with red numbers ticking down, maybe wired to your ignition?

I think its the Friction gear or the lifters, I just dont have the inclination now to spend 400$ just to find out whats wrong. without parts(thats just for taking the Intake manifold and Valve covers off)

Apart from that still love it
