    We're dropping the GTO off at the bodyshop today. I'm pondering how long it will be there.

    Wasn’t aware there was a contest... would’ve entered if I had known. Certainly could use the assistance!

    Got the Pala back on the rack and I'm pondering what it's going to be the converter or the tranny.

    served under the same oath that I took.... and will never be relieved ofthe responsibilities that come with it!
    My Uncles Richard, Norbert, Melvim, Herbert, Harold and Tom... Then, I must thank my Cousins that also set the example
    for me to follow... Richard, Steven, and Randy. Next would be my adopted uncles, which included the Legionares and VFW
    members of Preston Iowa Who also passed on the mantle of responsibility upon me.... After I took the oath,I followed the
    example of those whose path I followed.... I lost several brothers along my enlistment, many of whom I will never forget!
    Those whom have not fallen, have my six, just as I have theirs! I only wish that I could pass these thankyous for my
    service onto each and every one of them! The best I can say to all of you is while thanking me for my service, is to thank
    you for being someone who is truly worth serving, as all to many have forgotten this simple idea: Thes United States are the
    Home of the Free, BECAUSE of the Brave! All Gave Some, BUT, Some Gave ALL! Many returned Home, But, we must remember that
    Many will never be returning, and More will never completely return, and have to live with the wounds that either never heal,
    or those that are unseen but, never heal... May God Bless You all on this day that he has created and allowed us to enjoy!
    What he said. (Just a bit late but I have gotten lots & lots of sleep the last couple of days.)

Don't think that they are going to let me have a drink or two for the Marine Corps birthday that evening since they are keeping me overnight. And of course it will kind of screw up Veterans Day too. Oh well, I have been waiting since early August for November 10th so I sure as hell am not going to the back of the line now. I guess that I will be finding out what it's all about shortly.
    Semper Fortis My Brother from another Mother.... This old Squid will tip one in your honor! You'll make up for it after recovery!

    They called and said it will take three weeks to get a part so I told them to cancel. Show and cruise time will be over soon anyway and I can continue to not drive the car for another nine months.

    My 78 caprice had a bar under the driveshaft. It held up when I pulled the engine and transmission without taking the driveshaft out.
