    The remainder of the trip was uneventful. but the dash fire melted (some completely in-half) 21 wires. Amazing that the car still ran afterwards. At any rate, she's currently up on blocks getting new suspension bits and a new(used) main wiring harness.

    Feel free to drop me a line. I'd like to hear what vehicles you're driving these days.

    Cheers,
    Craig

    As I passed through Tacoma the car started shaking so violently I had to pull off the road. A quick check showed nothing amiss but the car would not go much past 45mph without shaking itself apart. That meant the main freeways were out and I wound up on a less-used road doing 45... until the Highway Patrol pulled me over. I finally worked my way to my sisters at about 4:00AM. The next day we went to a local mechanic who declared the rear suspension bushings as shot. "It won't fall apart, but it'". So, onwards I went. All-was-well (the shaking never reappeared) until about an hour out from the border - smoke started pouring out from under the dash. By the time I got pulled over, the fire was out. The car still ran, and everything seemed to still work, so on I continued. ---continued---

    Greetings Ian;

    I was the fellow that bought your '88 Spider a few years ago - remember? Sorry I never got back to you after I picked up the car... life quickly gets in-the-way.

    It certainly was an adventurous trip back - lots of drama, but arrived safely back in Calgary Alberta a few days later. After leaving your house I headed up the Pacific Coast Highway and US101 to my sisters place in Seattle - what a brilliant drive!
