It's baby Jesus. It's an old tradition, the person who finds it in their piece has good luck and makes the cake next year.

I was telling the guys in the shop about it, they said they have a similar tradition in Mexico (I forget the name) and the baby Jesus is in a Tamale! NO kidding!

Oh Yeah! I forgot about that tradition,,
I grew up in New Mexico, the baby Jesus tradition is called Rasca-de-Reyes,never celebrated it my self,, its a Christan tradition,, but I never knew they also had the same celebration in Louisiana

Man that's some good looking chow there! I better go get some dinner, your pictures are making my mouth water!

Got the inside of the car cleaned up finally today! Didn't realise how dirty it was until the first pass with the vacuum, and I saw the real black carpet under the dust!
Sign shop tomorrow!

Quite the project you got goin' pugsy.
Finally decided to get my exhaust system for my project coated so I gathered up all the pieces and laid then out in the driveway.
I fabricated the headers and exhaust probably three or four years ago and didn't remember this many parts.
Iv'e never had coatings done before so I'm curious what the quote will be.

Here are the pieces.

Any idea what it will cost?

Up here in Bend Over Land, it would be around $1500.00 for that lot.

Yesterday I took my 98 Yukon down to a shop to get the intake gaskets replaced,, Thanks to that orange DEXTRON anti freeze, it desolved all the gaskets,, just lucky that it eat up the gasket between the water passages and the block, and puked the water out on top of the motor and didn't leak into the oil pan,
could have done it myself, but BUT BUT,, I'm just too damn old and lazy to be climbing around on top of a motor anymore,, besides I would most likely screw it up

If it lasted from 98 til now, you are one lucky fella. Dexcool is crap, worst junk I have ever worked with. Once the gaskets are changed, tell them to flush it all out, and fill with regular old cheap green coolant, and flush it every 2-3 years, and it will last forever.

How much does an intake job go for where you are? That job would be give or take $700, here.


BTW, LOVING the Bonnie!!!

Well It did start a few years back.. my wife was driving it to work and pretty much her transportation,, one day she mentioned that the heater wasn't working, so I checked the coolant,, wasn't any, so I refilled it.. about 2 weeks later , it was low again,, I pressure tested it and it wouldn't hold pressure, and there was no visible leaks, and no water in the oil, so that meant that it was leaking into a exhaust valve some where and blowing the coolant out the exhaust, so lazy a s s me I put some block sealant in the radiator to see if it would stop the leak,, it did, so she drove it for a couple of years, no problems
then my son was driving it and it started really puking coolant, so we towed it home and parked it till I decided to fix it,, at first I thought it had blown out a freeze plug, because the flow was gushing out right above the transfer case,
we have several vehicles.. so it stayed parked for a couple of years, until gas got so expensive that I couldn't afford to drive my 1 ton dually, so I decided to get the Yukon fixed, since its a little better on gas,
looking the Yukon over to determine what exactly was wrong.. I found that it was actually gushing water out of the intake manifold right under the alternator, and running down the side of the block , which caused me to think it was a freeze plug,,
sure glad it was the intake gasket, because replacing a freeze plug above the transfer case would involve dropping the T/case,, not fun at all
so I took it to a shop ,, that does excellent work, and has a car show every year where I won a 200$ labor off certificate, last year..
the whole job including all new hoses belts clamps. coolant, and oil & filter change, came to 801$ - 200$ = 601 $ and i didn't get my hands dirty
Its my company rig, so I'll claim it on my taxes ,,

GM Did have a recall on alot of rigs because of that crap,, but I bought it used so toughziski,,
Thanks for the kudo's on the bonnie ,, I'm kinda partial to her too
