    Thanks everyone for the good wishes, much appreciated. Got let out of hospital last night so I'm back home for a couple of days then off to Melbourne where Corey has organised a cardiologist to check me out and fix the problem. Only read your messages today as the local hospital doesn't have wi-fi and I couldn't use the new tablet that the wife had just bought!

    I've got to get better as I'm in the middle of fitting new front shocks on the wife's 33 coupe and she's missing her ride LOL

    Good to hear (read). As for the shocks they can wait as you have given so many others shocks. ;)

    Hi Swifty, not good you being in hospital but glad you are back home and Cory has organised a good doc. It was great catching up at the Nats and hope you had a trouble free trip home. Take care

    Well, the old mans home from his grease and oil change. Even got to ride home from the hospital in a big block olds powered olds. And no I wasn't trying to test his heart still worked ok. A few days rest and he will be able to start getting back out in garage.
  14. Hey Corey that's great to hear.
  15. That's great to hear Corey, I'm sure you hooked him up with the best doctor he could get.

    Swifty, we were really shocked to hear you were having an issue because you seem so trim and fit. Just goes to show you even the well tuned have issues once in a while. Give that new stent a chance to settle in before you go fixing the wife's car - that's what you have a son for:)

    Here's to a fast and full recovery,

    Thanks everyone for all your good wishes. Corey set me up with a great medical team and they found and fixed the problem and now all I have to do is rest for a few days then I can get back to my normal routine.
    Wife took me for a cruise in my coupe today as I'm not allowed to drive yet.

    Well I'm glad I came in on the tail end of this Swifty and all is well. Good planning. Get the rebuild done in the off season. Less time off the road that way.

    All the best

    Hi HRP,

    He is doing well, well he was last time I saw him. He should end up back doing what he wants to do, just I hope being a bit more cautious. He has 2 more 32's to finish so he's going to be too busy to get sick again!
