Thanks to all at HR.com- fruition

hey folks. My hand is broken so I cant type much. I just wanted to say thanks to everybody who helped me on the 388 project. I just hooked up the plugs and started it. No exhaust just headers. Loud. Fun. I think I moistened myself.

I'm tired. Cant even muster the strength to change the oil so I can listen to it idle. Hand is too fked up.

Thanks again guys, you've all been great-

K

i broke my pinky doing that to a door once.
i never had it fixed so now its always crooked.

i could say that "i won" seeing as how i basically broke the door in half after beating it for about 30 minutes straight, but now that i think about it, all of the splinters that i had to dig out of my hand plus the broken pinky plus i had to buy and replace the door..... i think that the door might have won.

Non living things always win in a punchfest. Beat up a punching bag......... you're tired and the bags waiting for more.
