Prayers sent, buddy. Sent one up for the car, too.

You, sir, are the real deal, and the energy and work you can get done in a very short time frame are inspiring. While I do not have the resources at the moment to do a project, I have tried to take the inspiration that you have passed out and put it into my job. It earned me a call from my former boss, and an offer to return to my old shop foreman position, with a raise. Even if the car has to go, you need to know that it isn't about the pile of metal in the driveway. It is about the drive to do, to make something better out of something broken. By coming here and sharing the struggles you have, and posting the monumental things you can do in spite of those, you pass that drive on to some of the people who read it.

You aren't just building cars, Randy.

Well.. You really touched me with this one... My wife was also deeply touch by this,,, ''EVERYDAY'' I wonder why I push myself with all this.. And to read something like this,, Well I guess I now know why even more.. You know in life today, You just don't realize who's life you just may be making a difference too..I love showing my work here for everyone to see..But ''NEVER'' realized that it really made any difference to anyone.... I know some enjoy seeing pictures of other people's work... I know I do...And a FEW HERE KNOW THE LIFE I deal with everyday, Like most others.... (And I'm not looking for anyone to feel sorry here).. I do get hit hard most of the time, And have to move on...Reading support like this, Really show's me not to give up,,, I seem so strong to other's, But live inside my own little space,,And to me seem so weak inside... You would think that I would be use to it by now...But it never seem's to get easy.. ''NEVER'' !!!! But I guess When I'm dead and gone,They can say he never gave up... So when I read this,, Well. it means a lot.... My wife just read it, And I have to say,,, She was in tears..... So thanks for the kind words,, They will never be for gotten..And I will keep fighting my way through this....


I just wanted everyone to know, the way I feel inside.... I wear a big smile, Even when hurting inside..

Sorry Cole... I must have been in the shop way too long to miss these find words..

I'm sure glade to hear that I make a difference to someone... Sometimes you just don't realize it...

It's so crazy how you can be help for someone else, And sometimes can't even keep your own life right..

Also remember that you always made a difference in my life by the nice things you have always said to me.. Thanks

Good luck to Glenda. I see the headers worked out.Did you have to tweak them or did they go right in? Looks great.

My wife and me want to say thanks for the support... She's a trooper !!!!! Can't really knock her down,,, I know..

She talked to the doctor today, And the doctor is going to slide her in...

As for the headers,,, They fit like ******* !!!! I guess that's why I never see them for sale today...Can't run the stock steering box... I'm thinking about taken all that crap out, And set up a rack..

Will be getting back on this one soon I hope.... I been trying to track down a clip for it.. Since I can't get the $1800 for the mustang II front end.... Really wanted to go that route.... But I guess a clip will have to do..... I can then zee the frame like I want too.... Even thought of doing a whole new frame for it.... If that happens it will get pro street-ed...

Been trying to locate a Monte Carlo,Cutlass, Regal, Malibu front clip... They or 58'' hub to hub.... These cars are getting so hard to find now..... So anything is on the table at this point.... It's time to burn some AMP'S again soon...

Update on the wife.... She's out of all her cast,boot's and everything else she had to buy to wear....Only one boot was $400.00 Really crazy !!!! I never had a PAIR of boot's that cost that much.....
Her's was only ONE !!!! Not even a pair...

One thing should be able to do the job,,,, But wear this this week,,,Then this,then this, then this.......
What the h*** happen to just a cast..

So now she is doing physical therapy,,,,

But at least she's doing a lot better now...

Man !!!! If only I could trade in all her new foot wear for that new front end... I would be rolling by now...

So I'm hoping to do something soon on this one..
