    Default I'm back! Just stickin' my head in the door...

    It's been a while. Glad to see some names of old friends. All these years later I truly value your friendship and company back in the day. I've still got mine out there in the shop, STILL haven't installed the Procharger, Patrick's cam, or the $20,000+ in other parts that I gathered over the years. Installed a lift though so that when I retire I can get under it. Retirement will be in a year or so. I've driven it once or twice each of the last five years. Still looks almost like it did when it came off the showroom. Debating stripping the Zaino Z5 off and putting a ceramic coating on it. I did my Tacoma and it came out very good. Maybe I will do the G8 next.

    And I remember WAY back in the day when I thought it would have been cool to have a garage with a pit to do oil changes. A lift in your own garage... would never have dreamed the day!
