B.O.A.T. = Break Out Another Thousand!

I am a Certified Merchant Mariner with Masters Boat Captain License and captained a salvage, towing, rescue & pilot launch vessel in Philly before moving to Atlanta to attend medical school right after getting married. My wife and i were planning on having kids so I started looking for a "family" vehicle and picked up my very first P38 at auction. It was BEAUTIFUL and I thought I had stolen it. It's Blue Book value when I purchased it two years ago was over 9,000 and I paid a fraction of that for it. I have since dumped another 8,000 into repairs... Hmm. Now it’s BB Value is only 3,000 and I’m over 10,000 into it... lol.

Anyway, I love driving the car and it turs head everywhere but just wish they were a bit (ok a lot) more reliable and reasonable to repair. I would love to plan a trip to England to twist the fingers of some of the engineers of these cars if anyone is interested... :) I will list all the repairs I have made and then start in hopefully to get some advice on a few repairs I still have to make that are being difficult to track.

Cheers!
