    Rod Knock on a '04 ?

    First and last

    Had a similar experiance a couple of years ago. Was working on ACRX #50. Finished it up and shipped it out. 3 days later had a late build '92 get dropped off from CA. Was kind of cool to go from one of the last Gen 4 cars to a early Gen 1 in a few days.
