    Hey Flash! This is my 1st post on here in months. Good to see you up and about and getting fitter after your operation.

    Would love to see some pics of the Skylark. Thinking about a project car over here myself.
    A friend of mine just bought a cherry '66 Mustang and is getting it shipped over here to Australia.

    I wish we had the choice of classic cars that you guys do!

    Cheers

    Beeg.

    lol It's good to be busy.

    A good day's when there just aren't enough hours in the day to fit everything in that you'd like to do that day. Those days fly by.

    Sounds like you're heading in the right direction, so keep going :-)

    hey everyone!!!

    beeg you'all have some great lookin' cars down there too. i really like the early 70's monaros, falcons, and chargers. if you are considerin' some detroit muscle to build you can't hardly beat a '69 camaro. you can literally built a brand new one with the amount of aftermarket parts available. engine/trans combos are nearly endless. ....but if you're a ford guy, the mustang is almost as easy to build as a camaro.

    yeh FA, it's good to be busy! ...and to run out of daylight. it's also good to be tired and sore for the right reasons. it feels really good to be tired after a day of workin' outside doin' whatever i can. i've got my rough hands back ......haven't had rough and callused hands for 20 years.
    some of my meds have been ruduced and/or changed. doctors visits are gettin' further apart. my last broncoscopy showed no virus, fungus, or rejection.
    life is great.... and gettin' better!

    cool here today, but not terrible. 45f, but not raining, and the winds have died down. the SUN is out now..... supposed to warm up a little in the next few days. ohio weather is so wierd.... my b-day is comin' up in about 3 weeks and i can't count how many of them were spent in 70f + temps.
    ......last year it snowed on my b-day.
    howdy from ohio!!

    .......and how it's supposed to look.
    under several layers of paint i discovered it's supposed to be white with a dark blue interior.
    somethin' like this.

    It's in a really decent shape for sitting there for 28 years!
    How the hell can you keep a car for that long? Wish I could do that. The car Ive got the longest yet is a 89crx.
    Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why
    it’s called the present.
