well folks, to put it simply, ive been downright busy!

I got outta school May 17th and as soon as I came home I had to finish the 28' by 24' deck that my brother dad and myself added onto our house (we dug the holes during my spring break - 15 holes at 4 feet deep and 10 inches wide -- lets put it this way, new england soil does NOT work well for digging 4 feet deep! haha)
We then finished putting up 80feet of vinyl shadowbox fence, put mulch down in places, etc etc. == ALL basically to be done for my sisters high school graduation party which was last sunday (50 people had to fit IN our house instead of outside because of rain )


and NOW I started last sunday night to work at my local ShopRite doing the overnight shift stocking shelves, etc, etc.
Due to the lack of people doing the overnight shift (6 to do the whole store every night), I will be working 6 days a week and just about 60 hours each week all the way till the end of August

I actually enjoy doing it, and Im JUST starting to get used to the getting in at 8ish or so and sleeping 8 hours, getting up, eating, etc. and going back into work again =-- the upside is that I will be making a LARGE amount of money by the end of the summer which to me is well worth it (the harder i work THIS summer and make a good piece of change, the less i really need to be worried of having to work hard NEXT summer )

So thats where Ive been and thats where I will be (hence why I havent been around much if at all lately)

As for BeeBop, I put the front spoiler on and now the 429 scoop is going onto the extra hood, hopefully this week.
As to new paint, well thats not happening due to the oranges that I want are all 2 and 3 stage pearls etc. that will cost me a minimum of $1500

So instead Im going to get a suspension package (shocks, leaf springs, sway bars) and then get an export brace and monte carlo bar, and get all that done.

As to the '88, the black paint job should be coming soon, as well as the T-5 swap (have all the parts, just have to have a day to put it all in), the ranger header and dual exhaust should be coming soon, and that should be it!
Pictures will come as things move along

sorry for the long post, but once i start typing now (Im wired from work and lack of sleep), i find it hard to stop

have a good one!

haha yeah that lotto ticket probably wont come till im 100 and peacefully on my deathbead

The only show Ive been to so far this year has been the Rt111 in Monroe cruise night -- both times it got rained out (I didnt go this past friday because I had to work)

I was going to go to Stratford day this past Saturday but that got rained out and then I was going to go to the Barnum Festival one at Hillcrest MS yesterday but I ended up sleepin most of the day because it was raining when I got in

But I will pop in from time to time and Im sure I will see you at at least 2 or 3 shows this year -- theres practically somethin goin on everyday

but Tom, thats the beauty of having an extra hood and trunk for only $40 -- lets me have the normal look and then the "baBAM!" look to it haha

dont worry, i know the purists will cry and shake their fists at me at the car shows, but then again a car show is to show your car so in the words of Rhett Butler in Gone With the Wind (eh they may not be accurate since I read the book 3 or 4 years ago):
"Frankly my dear, I could give a damn"

on a sidenote: I had three people -- one with a 450hp 5.0, another with a '67 390GT, and one with a '70 SS 396 Chevelle vert (beautiful car!!!) ask what I had under the hood because it sounded great
