    That sounds very sensible but that schedule would interfere with my "sitting around drinking beer and smoking cigars" time .:D

    Rocky is 23.

    You mean all of us calloused, hardened older men are being monitored by a 23 year old?

    On the other hand...

    You mean a 23 year old has to babysit us whiny complaining achy old farts?

    There is a bright note, the census is off on the 40 to 50 years old . They just are not on the hamb or have left, most the guys in this age group are on facebook or instagram. Most my car friends on facebook are in this age group , but the worry is they are very few in their twentys.

  21. Another old friend a year younger than me passed yesterday. He used to Race Fords At George Rays a few decades ago. had a 428 ford convert. When we where teens in the 1960,s he had a 57 chevy 2 dr sedan and a ford PK. It seems like yesterday we where hauling fill dirt with tri axle dunp trucks. Mine had a cummins and thirteen speed. His had a Cat engine and a double 8 trans. He could work those two shift levers.

    I will be 69 in 2020! I graduated high school in 69! Was bit by the hot rod bug at an earlier age,say around ten! By 14 I was figuring gear ratios for full grown men that raced cars on the circle tracks,at Thunderbird Speedway, when I should have been doing my math! Read everything I could get my hands on at the time!
    Still playing with cars, at last count, I had about 75 vehicles.
    Have lost a lot of buddies in my years, miss them every day! But I still have some good friends and make new ones , occasionally! So the future looks bright!
