I feel your pain on the humidity here. I'm on the Gulf coast, things rust inside the garage just from moisture in the air. I painted every piece of suspension on my car just for that reason. Any nut or bolt I missed gets rusty.

So this distributor had to be replaced once and now has to be rebuilt.
Does not reflect well on MSD.
Yes. I suspect the cap isn't as weatherproof as they think it is. Luckily, the first time it was under warranty. That was like 6 years ago. I'll report back when I get it back from MSD.

Excellent, I'll just stay here at the hotel till I send my distributor to MSD and wait for it to come back so I can put it in and drive home. Aftermarket parts with no parts network just blows my mind why you would want that. I don't even want weird **** like that on my race car because the moment I'm going rounds will be the time a stupid part like that fails.

Some events mark you for life.

One for me was a '72 Charger w 400/727 repeatedly dying at lights and in turn lanes in hot weather, which turned out to be the reluctor, aptly named.

Nothing like Chevy and Ford guys flipping you off in your dead Mopar, luckily I wasn't cited for "defective equipment".

Later, a Mallory Unilite "sh*t the bed" in my Roadrunner.

That car was possessed anyway, but the Unilite didn't help.

One night, hanging out at a burger place back in the cruising days, this gorgeous - and inebriated - blonde "needed a ride" and I was like OMG, thank you God, but the car wouldn't start. Got me there just fine, but now wouldn't start.

So she took a ride from a friend of my Greg on the back of a GSXR, and he dated her for a couple years til things got super ugly, so better him than me, the car saved me.

The only icing on the cake I could think of with a dead car situation like that are when a gorgeous gal in a Camaro drives by and asks if you "need a jump", make sure to use this situation to your advantage before your Mopar pride makes you decline the offer.

Why, yes, dear. Jump your bones.
