How Do You Do It?

Monday my car is going into the shop to get a new clutch, rebuild the trans, and 3.73 gears. Along with New U-joints and tranny mount

Now this is great because the school is doing it and it wont cost me anything, but the instructor said it would take at least a week because he will look over everything before its sealed up.

What I want to know is how do you guys go without driving your mustang, I drive mine EVERY day, honestly I cant remember the last day I didn't drive it. I know I will be happy with it when its done, but over a week without her.

Harder yet ill get my tuner in the mail the day it goes into the shop..

Nope not in the auto tech program, but the instructor requested my car.. Because and 8.8 is so common he wanted them all to learn he said he would make sure it was done right..
