Winning lottery numbers? Spare bag o' cash? Just a random ~$10K they could ship my way??

Man, this sucks...I'm really starting to miss the ol' Ghia. Granted, it's in the garage, but it's SITTING. Not good. So much needs to be done...I was thumbing through my Pictures folder on my PC, and saw the old pictures from her "Glory Days"...pictures from Carlisle, Charlotte, other local shows...man, it's kinda depressing. As underpowered as the 2.8 under the hood may be, the car is still damn stylish.

Are you doing any projects on it? That helps somewhat.

About the biggest project I've done to it since the strut rod arms were replaced is driving it.

It could be blamed on numerous things, but it's solely my fault. I just don't do anything to it. I haven't started searching for that quarter panel. I haven't replaced the valve cover gaskets.

I've got a year....I would really, really, really like to have the Ghia at the 40th down there in TN (or where ever it's gonna be now). Man, I remember I was cracking to get it ready for the 35th...had the bumpers done, all the chrome, etc...ready by the end of March '99. The show was roughly 2 weeks after I got it out of the shop (heheheh...shoulda seen my April Fool's prank to the MII list that year...LOL), and I protected that shiny new stuff extra-carefully until then.

It was a sick joke.

A good joke, but still twisted.

Good thing we had two weeks to get over it before hooking up in Charlotte. Or we would have kicked your arse.

Thanks for the heads up, last I heard MCA had signed with Charlotte, I mean, Lowes.

All those Damned Brand-X signs Lowes were irritating.

Now, what could there possably be to do in Nashville ......

Hmm...we may have to go find out for ourselves. Wonder if there's a "Gin Mill" down there?

I'm just gonna leave it at that.

IIGood. You looking for a parts car? There's a red coupe close by. Don't think it's a Ghia.

Hey, Baby, you looking for something special, or just shagging free drinks?

LMAO!

Seriously, if I find myself in Nashville I won't know what to do. Every type of live music that can be imagined. It's been so long since I've heard Hard Driving Rock, or Blues Rock, performed on stage, I'm salavating at the thought.

Money put in the Car, or Money for the Trip, what a conundrum.

At the 40'th you Will Not see me in a Toyota.
