Daily driver

Thanks John it's good to see familiar name out there, I saw where deckofficer had posted and I bet MartinSr, Cobalt327, boothboy are all lurking out there somewhere. I haven't had as good of a year this year compared to last. I had to have another catherization about three months ago after flunking my yearly Echo and then a chemical stress test. I have seven partial blockages from 40 to 60% that are causing fatigue and some chestpain under stress but Medicare and the supplement I have want pay for a stint or angioplasty unless a blockage is 70% so I have a chest full of teenage heart attacks I am raising to maturity. I have had pneumonia for over four weeks and have had six shots, two bottles of strong antibiotics, two packs of steroids, breathing treatments four times daily, inhalers and whatever it takes to stay out of the hospital because if I had to be admitted I am afraid I would come out not being able to walk again. I think I used to be hospitalized around four times a year but I have gone two years without having to go.
I still love my hotrods though, all four of them and them and the love of my family and good friends.

Garrell

You are right Garrell, BB, Brian and Mark are still regulars. I am sure they will come back sooner or later.

Whats your daily driver

I bet if we posted a strange picture of a chunk of twisted steel and ask what's this trivia piece that fell off of my daily driver we would hear from Brian and bb and they would tell us what museum they saw that exact piece in. I tried playing trivia quizz with them for a while and I was able to answer a few Corvette questions and I asked one Vette question that I think it took them a couple of days to answer but I wasn't in the same league with them. I wish my memory was 1/2 what Brians is.
I feel them watching now I think!!!

We should start an ex-wife honeymoon car thread. Mine was a 71 Riviera, that was a pretty awesome car. The ex can start a car show all by herself she just married #5.

Here is my DD. 1989 Silverado, former TBI 305/700R. I couldn't get the idle leveled out to my satisfaction so I pulled the dist. and intake and it's now a 305 with HEI and old cast iron 4-bbl intake bolted to the late model heads with a decent 750 quadrajet that I bought off a feller on Craigs List for $25.00. It had been on his Pontiac Catalina sittin in his field for 8yrs. I cleaned it up, no kit at all, with some brake cleaner and it's been running good on my truck for better than a year now. I think it's easier on gas than the throttle body was to. http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/atta...1&d=1354463043

I didn't see this post, Garrell I am so sorry to hear about your ill health, my goodness that is the pits. On the Trivia, ask away man, we often google the answer too but try to answer out of memory first. Get those questions coming!

Awesome. I have 2 friends with gti's. One with an APR stage 1 tune and the other with a ko4 and tune and I had an audi a4 with the 1.8t running 10lbs of boost. Those vag cars are freakin awesome, you will love it for as long as you have it! Get vag-com too and get rid of all the stupid noises and warnings.
