    How ironic you should say that! The one I'll post is of me in 1984-5 standing next to my 1970 1/2 Z28 Camaro that PROBABLY had Foreigner in the tape deck.....I LOVED that car and SO wish that I had it now!!

    Oh man, I know what you mean about the mice. They absolutely destroyed the interior of the Rolls we discovered, and chewed up any rubber that hadn't dry-rotted. We didn't dare put the car in the garage until we got them all cleaned out, lest they get comfy, multiply, and mount a full-fledged invasion. One of the many reasons we got into the car as cheaply as we did.

    Our second car, after the 57, was a 1968 Chevelle SS frame-off resto. Talk about coincidence!

    I understand about the Mustang, sometimes you cannot refuse a generous out of the blue offer, especially when the prospective buyer shows up cash/check in hand. We ended up selling an unfinished 1969 Pontiac Firebird T/A that way.

    I'd love to see some pics of your work!

    Here's some that I have in my office computer at the moment, they're thumbnails...click on them:
    82 Ranger that dad bought new and I got for free. Sat for years, so I took it home, did a full drivetrain transplant from a 90 Mustang GT (5spd, 347 roller stroker, 3.73 posi, and fuel cell in back for weight), and holy blast that thing was fun!! Just kind of an "I'm bored" project that one of the kids ended up with when he left home.
    ranger.jpg ranger3.jpg ranger4.jpg ranger2.jpg

    1965 Mustang Fastback "farm find" ($1300) on its way to our garage from the wheat fields of northern central Montana. Rear-ended in 1966. Got both rear framerails and all new sheetmetal...that was quite a job. All Shelby scoops (fully functional) as well as rear brake cooling, also functional. Even had steel hood with functional GT500 scoop. Unassembled (exactly as pictured) sold and exported to Canada for 5 $ figures....I could not refuse!
    mustang.jpg mustang3.jpg mustang2.jpg mustang4.jpg

    And of course the 68 SS Chevelle that I've had 25 years. Sat in storage ALMOST 20 years until we retrieved it. Body off, all blasted, Por 15'd, all new suspension, and 454/TH400, 12 bolt 3.73 posi. Need to get body to blaster, but is now sitting back on frame back in storage til this fall.
    chevelle.jpg chevelle2.jpg chevelle3.jpg chevelle4.jpg

    Gotta get this Vette "quick done" in the next 90 days for the wife so I can get the Chevelle back. Interior was eaten by mice over 10 years (literally) while it sat in a barn in Wyoming. So, interior, mild 355 build, L88 hood, wheels, tires, and paint. Paid $2k for it....and it drives!! :)

    Thanks! It's too bad that I have to have a job, otherwise that's what I'd always do....but then it would be a job and not a hobby! :)

    We've owned a couple thus far. Next will be an early C3 bumper car OR a C2!

    I'm an actor by trade, so I'm often looking for roles in any sort of medium. Be it theatre, movies, television, audio books or plays, or voice acting.
    I also enjoy Civil War reenacting, and learning more about history both by researching and getting a taste by recreating aspects of it. Books, movies, tv shows, and video games are also good time wasters.

    He said he opened for all those bands, so his band played as an opening act at a Great White show. But wouldn't that be something if we had a big time musician on the board? Or big time anything for that matter? Lol

    Play XBOX One and 360 a bit and I socialise. But most of my spare time is taken up with 60th Parallel. I front a band called 60th Parallel.
