    So I got the thread idea from another board I'm on. Now that it's winter time, and we have about 2 feet of snow on the ground in Nebraska, I have the itch to work on my car. Anyway, post up what you guys have been doing to your car recently.

    I'll start. It's not much, but I plugged my PCV valve in the intake manifold. Originally, I capped off the brass bung thing, but I thought it looked tacky. I pulled out the brass fitting with a pair of pliers and an easy out, and then grabbed a black plastic push in trim-securing piece I had laying in my garage and ran a little bit of caulk around it. It fits snugly into the hole where the brass fitting was. In my opinion, it looks 100x better.

    It's way too hard to explain, so here's a couple pics. Don't mind the dirty engine bay: That's my next project when it warms up a little bit.

    Nothing.

    Sit and wait for parts to arrive, if that counts.

    I'm in the same boat, but I'm just trying to get some things paid off so I can get my nitrous kit. The goal is to order it by February, lol.

    It sat peacefully in the garage today. I just recently bought a house, so having a garage to put it in is still a super cool thing!

    To each his own. I'll take my plastic black plug over some goofy looking cap sticking 2" off the side of the intake with a huge hose clamp on it any day. :shrug:

    Parked it, removed the wiper arms and antenna, locked it up, disconnected the battery, put the cover over it, and dropped the collision insurance for the winter.

    Wished I could be working on it...but alas, I am enduring the Alaskan winter, while it is sitting snug in a garage in California. :shrug:

    I guess I did plan mods and day dream about working on it, does that count, ha, ha?
