It was blowing about 85 this morning at 630 here. Evidently blew windows out at Memphis International Airport and all planes on the ground were evac'd and general chaos ensued. A Chevy dealer off of I240 got hit by an tornado supposedly. EF1. Not that real :poo: yall get in Oklahoma.

Is this still a car building thread?

Why yes, yes it is......

Slight delays now due to a daughter that did well enough to graduate high school early and get a scholarship to a nice local college.

This is the last of the kids, my baby girl. I bought her a 2014 Ford Fusion so she can drive to college and back safely. Here she is getting in it. I love this little girl so much.

This destroys savings for Booger admittedly. It’s really not cheap to insure an 18 year old in a somewhat newer car......who knew?

Anywho, the weather is perking up quite a bit and I think i’ll be doing quite a bit on Booger starting next weekend since I have minimal play money now due to fore mentioned child.

I really have a bunch of cheap yet technical stuff to do to the old boy this summer anyhow.

I should also have my divorce papers in hand in the next two weeks.:nice: Believe me, you’ll know when that becomes official.

My brother and I were actually out looking Booger over today, it felt good. Even exciting again, it’s been awhile.

Hey Dave! Did you miss me??? I asked Mike that same question....no answer yet.:rlaugh:

It's been probably a year or more since I've been around here. Still chugging along on the car, huh? I'm just passing thru to see how you guys are doing and how the projects are going. I'm try to scroll back to try and catch up.
Of course I miss you Craig!

My life has changed so dramatically, getting into a groove again has been difficult.

But with Booger sitting twenty feet from where I’m sitting right now I think i’ll be getting busy again next weekend.

Aww. I shudder at the thought of my daughters graduating high school. I shudder more at the thought of them in control of a couple of tons of metal on wheels. :O_o:

I can’t guarantee that I’ll be up extra early next Saturday morning working on Booger, but I can guarantee Dirty Bastard will play a vital role.

So, next Saturday morning get up early and encourage me. I’m trying to get back in the fox body groove.

It’s like working out, the first couple weeks are a challenge, but with you guys and some really nice craft brewers we’ll all be knee deep in Booger again!:eek:

So you'll only be getting up at 6am instead of 3am?

When I get knee deep in Monster, I find it almost impossible to get up.
