Sweeeeeeet Phoenix!!!  Aren't you going to have an awesome 4th of July - you'll be lightin' up the sky from the asphalt. Mine wasn't scheduled for surgery until next week, but the body shop sent me pics of it under the knife today  :) - now I'm ready to see red/copper pixels all over my screen when I check back on ya again...keep up the good work and rest that trigger finger well tonight  ;)


I wish...  :(  She won't be released until later next week.  They're letting the paint cure out over the weekend, then they have to put back all the mirrors and bumpers and stuff.  Then new windshield and door hinge, badges, painting the wheels and letters on the back...THEN I'll get her back.  I'm still really excited about it, but I won't be able to get her back just yet.

Either way, it'll be an awesome 4th just 'cause I get to watch her be repainted.  ;D

Holy Guacamole Andy, I think I just soiled myself. Man o' Man I hope mine turns out like that...but then I run the risk of soiling myself again I suppose. What an awesome look that is...reminds me of my buddy's 86' we took from St.Louis to Jackson Hole Wyoming the week after he took delivery on it. Awesome time, awesome memories....looking forward to more from ya.

I asked him today what the ETA was on the car, and he said I WILL have it back THIS WEEK!   :o ;D

Here's a little preview... the next pics will be of the COMPLETED car!

Bethany IS a girl's name, and Yes, I'm a girl.  And thanks for the compliments!  I'm quite proud of her...especially after this weekend!  ;D
