    Anyone here that knows me KNOWS that I treasure my Mother...probably more than life allows, but she’s my Mom...she bought me my first SHO even though other newer and more beautiful cars were offered to me.

    She came from a family of 17 with 9 male car enthusiasts(brothers) that made her a gear head.

    The lady has owned Buick Grand Nationals, Buick T-Types, Boat Tailed Rivieras, Plymouth Road Runners, Ford 500’s, GTO’s...the list goes ON! She currently owns a manual 97 Trans Am WS-6 that’s been stroked to a 383 Stroker motor, an 06 Acura TL 3.5, and an 06 Hemi AWD Chrysler 300 all as her dd’s


    She didn’t understand the SHO thing at first, but after her buying me my first one and later having her driveway clogged up with 5 SHO’s at one time, she knew that it was my destiny.

    She’s 72 mind you, and is STILL as beautiful and cognizant as all, but I took her to a funeral this Saturday in my Bmw 550 Xi which she likes for its speed but a 2014 Taurus pulled up beside us and she says “this Bmw is a fine vehicle but your heart has always been on the SHO. That Taurus is a FINE car, I wish you’d have gotten the SHO instead of this”....

    With as terrible as this BMW has been to me, I kinda think I owe it to Momma to come back to the SHO...ESPECIALLY after the person that came to get my old SHO this weekend just texted tonight “so does it take 4 or 6 spark plugs”. WTf!?

    I may be back guys...just gta figure it all out. Who knows...let’s see how it all works out.

    Touching story.

    Now make Momma, and the community proud, and "figure it out".

    Hope to see 'ya in the seat of another SHO once again.

    God speed and good fortunes ahead!

    This damned car keeps coming back to haunt me. The new owner just drove two hours and disturbed my relaxing Non-S.H.O. sleep because after the tb/wp/cps change it was leaking coolant from, and I quote “ and NOW it’s leaking from the OTHER SIDE OF THE ENGINE!!”

    The throttle body hoses were brittle and broke after the person who did the timing belt lifted the intake up.

    Beyond the fact that the car HAS been basically sitting for 3 years and everything needs to be gone thru smh.

    This is the last free repair, and I told the guy that this car will MAKE you a mechanic...I don’t think you really know what you’ve gotten into son...

    I was reassured that this will be the last time...but I did offer to buy it back since the tb/wp has been replaced lol. It was to humor myself I guess because he left rapidly after I was told of all the thumbs up and compliments he was given on driving a legend. *Sigh*
