"1st pic of me showing up at dawn"...ha, welcome to my world{the one of those of us who are still working that is}...start at 6am and get out at 4pm....come in when dark and leave just before dark....not a fan of this time of year-:rolleyes:

...as per his color choice, it could've been worse....coulda chose hot pink pearl...which looked decent on my old kawi H2 cycle and the one 34 ford sedan I've seen that color on...

The latest----the "Kid" got the car home for the winter---I picked up the stainless trim that goes around the tailgate window-----sent to his shop (Merry Christmas) and I sent him a kit for the tailgate--seal,fuzzies,ect. On the side, I had a heart attack Thursday morning--made to the ER in time--they put in a stint and they sent me home today. 5-6 weeks of re-hab and back in for bypass---so be out of work for 3 months----so won`t be doing any big car stuff for awhile.Update on the "Kids" and LuLu later when they OK me for bigger things.................this is going to drive me nuts, just waiting for surgery and re-hab.......bummer......Lee

Oh no Lee! Take it easy and get better! I expect to see you at some shows this summer.
Ya I had big plans for LuLu this winter---just have to put it off till next year. I tell ya it could have been worse---the good Lord was was watching over me---we left the house about 2 in the morning and every light from 84th to 66th down France was green--none of them changed all the way to the hospital. We got a stint and we stopped the attack--now re-hab and a quad bypass later---we be good by April....see ya down the road......Lee

Only a little bummer! A big bummer would have ended this thread. Now it's just a big inconvenience, and you will be back at it in just a short time. It's good to hear you will be fine.
