Thanks for the welcome. I've been following your thread on the plugs and I know that on mine the threads were stripped on one of the heads. They put in something, the name is escaping me now but something foil (come on I'm a girl) OK, so more about my TC. My ex-boyfriend bought it new for an investment, it was covered and in a garage until about 7 years ago. He just got tired and didn't really have time to spend working on it. I wanted the car, and it was like a parting gift.... well sort of. Anyway, I can post lot's of pictures, but I think I might want to give it a bath first. It's in great shape, just really dirty. I enjoy reading the threads and I'm learning a lot about my little car.
