(The back story)
Many years ago upon first discovering this very site I`ve enjoyed contemplating the various topics brought up here on long walks around my local area.
I am also plagued by the exact same withering disease that the Count of Las Vegas suffers from, both hard core car guys. Its by instinct people like
us look for cars in all sorts of places. While I was taking my walks I took notice of a red Pontiac Firebird that sat under a carport never moving,
years went by and it never moved from its spot... I had to know why. I finally caught the owner out in his yard and asked him about it, and he seemed
relieved somebody showed some interest. A deal was made, a flatbed rented and a rare beautiful red 1990/91 split year Firebird now gets disassembled
in the driveway. It was a VATS Passkey/Passlock IIRC issue coupled with a leaking rubber fuel line the entire time! New weatherstripping and fluid and
filters changed and she should fire up, Ive already dropped the fuel tank and everything. No bolt goes unturned in this project! I have the factory
bible sized manuals and F-Body.com for resources however upon bring this car home it started a War I and most other forums were ill prepared for...
The Bird as she sat,
(The Fight is on!)
This poor car is infested? no colonized! with the largest most pissed off brown recluse spiders Ive come across to date, and I work in crawl spaces
and basements often. I`ve rotated glue traps out weekly with their dead, keep the carpet and the ground underneath dusted with diatomaceous earth,
jack stands it sits on got the Ortho pesticide and Ive tried dryer sheets and gas station incense to drive them out. Yet after a few days of it being
under a car cover I`ll open the door and one of these bastards are sizing me up.(WARNING Arachnophobes!)
Thats a medium sized one about as big as a childs palm when the legs are stretched out, I`ve seen a bigger one about the size of a mouse but it got
away into the dash.
I cannot burn the car down or nuke it from orbit just to be sure, the wonderful advice from F-body.com so I`m open to other suggestions.
