    Hi Jamie...you will LOVE this....My son, and I had a ball, welleven sis a bit too, right. All enjoying the weird weather , and it all just made it better, Yes I did see some advertisement yesterday about Fathers Day..maybe radio? Anyways, that last pic of the 32, we were headed to a grinder p;lace as my son had called ahead with the order. well Joe did ask if I wanted something to add to his order...spo I said YEA, I want teir Burger special with Rings...but you're paying... NO clue why that came oiut as Tim just paid me in cash...lol

    We get home after the meal, and some time later cross paths..and as I saw something that reminds me it is Fathers day....so I said to him"happy fathers Day" ...he said quietly, I should be saying that...

    He he, what means more, My Friends, a call once a year from 1000 miles away or a whole day of cool stuff with not only my son, but actually two more guys to carry our torch..

    Um, a cop out, or saving my only typing finger.. See above ^^^ He He. Rock on, my friends..
    Ok , racemad, I know you mountain folk up there are always on your game, but to prove that, yes it was mine still, but then it became his later that day!! How cool your observation of that,..... the change that had not happened YET . Thanks, man



    oh...
    one more thing right now... As I turned the laptop on, MY old screen saver had been switched maybe a hour ago by him..and .not telling me, it was always the Ford and I was startled with a big side pic of the maroon LaSalle....he.he

    Some pics from the last Ashford Ct cruise of the season Thursday night. I just rec'rd these pics though friend on FaceBook, a pro was taking pics late in the show. I like these pics a lot.

    ^^^ that old dude is ME...I am normally not that gray, I did that on purpose so all the young chicks would leave me the heck alone... Oh, and when my son was driving us to the show, he cuts through the UConn main campus to do some girl watching... I roll my window down on the main drag, and he says "DON"T you DARE say a word !!" See, even he knows I can chat 'em up good. LMFAO

    Some of my pics below:

    a rust free 40 Ford I sold 25 years ago, now finally redone as a rod:
    100_1151.JPG

    ^^^ behind the 40, is the founder of the Tyrods Auto Club (Rockville, CT)established in 1959. Car is a 37 Ford cabriolet with 1957 Cad 365 with all old school parts, trips, you name it.

    My sons 32 was also selected to be in the local business association's 2018 calendar:
    100_1092.JPG
    100_1093.JPG
    ^^^ yep, he looks pretty badazz in that pic..


    oh. and yes...he did the most hardcore "leave" after the show ended. I never knew an early Olds Rocket would rev as high as it did that night during the twin tire burn. It went posi the whole way, fish tailing a bit more this time, but dayum...this thing has some nuts!

Cat Marine TD power !!..sucks 180 GPH at full speed.. (yikes)was $4.5M new, and the new-2 years ago $330k smaller "day chase boat" was just traded for a triple motored , slightly faster $850k one!

    Ok, I needed only to go to one bank I frequent, to get $100 cash... Wow, a wild time there! Then across the road to the wild always, Dollar store...wow, cuties....But before I got to the bank. I simply stop to take pics of the Snow Fighter Crews that cover UConn...near here...Pic taken in the lot that was once the HUGE ass steam boiler plant that heated dozens of the Former Mansfield Training School, which houses severely retarded peoples for over? 100 years till the country wide rethinking of this issue.. Then I stop to see if the Less affected "kids" (all ages) or the Staff at the Gift place/nursery at the other end of this huge complex, were there, I wanted to show the 32 to a few.. Wow No shit, see? I do not BS on my girls! I always make jokes, but please know the following sentence is NOT a joke, and It is honestly a nice thing this moment... >> This IS the first time I EVER came home, smelling like very pretty perfume....from...hugging...so many women, girls, and MEN too.. I will add text later as I am spent from fighting life and Lyme hidden in me for nearly two years.. It WILL be worth the wait!

    I will attest in sincerity, You will get a slam...I MET the most epic Badass I ever have, and ever will ...a USN Seal Team 6 !!... and I might go to his shop/home later as I have a rest break coffee1 This MAN, is ,....wow...what a story..his valor in two "conflicts", perhaps three! as I rethink.., his loss of his US MARINES Brother in Nam...and how... etc.. Bye for now. Fuck you will be added, No names!...anonymous, of course, to two former friends, that are also hambers. Those two are pure dog shit in my eyes, for now or maybe forever?

    Ha, observant ONE you are! Dave, the guy I JUST met in pic!! He pulled it out from behind some "stuff!",, He TOLD me the name1 I forgot,, Shit dude I was JUSt NOW, writing names of 50 Fn people I met TODAY, I already forgot the name of the first guy that came to the door on the other end of that place! Ok, Dave even SAID the whole deal is old aftermarket! and said like I knew, the core is different as it Is Honeycomb! Oh, I am going back for as TOUR of this cluster F of stuff! Hey, I walked right past this place with my sis, a realtor back in maybe 2005? The place was owned by the mother of Andrew I did not see today! Ok, THEY did not own the LONG skinny 10 acre! tract running along the RR tracks, down past the coolest pine picnic grove, the former Revolutionary? War gunpowder site! down to dang near the Northern town border! Andys Mom did buy that too!, after I passed at I think 30k. Mom would not allow a electric wire right of way down her driveway to the potential sweet homesite I OKed with Our Town planner! I did have a previous driveway right of way... I should have done Off grid power! (I was going to offer the mom, free driveway plowing) as an act of neighborly stuff.. That be ME! and my mindset..She moved out to let her son "party", "make noise" with all that excavating equipment that was not even there back then... OH shit Budjet! , Dave said they are cleaning out a huge antique car parts hoard up in Mass I think! DUH!! I heard SO much all day! SEE?? lol..
    Oh, I need a mannequin for that big guy MOOSE I may have mentioned on a hamb thread..so he can have His late "gramma" dressed in HER old clothes, looking out of the old brick mansion window in Woodstock CT! he, he! Dave SAID Andy DOES have some!! LOL..Whack!!
    100_1590.JPG

    That be Moose on the driver side of my K20,. Oh is is a big boy! That truck sits high, dudes!! Grammas bedroom window is 2nd floor right straight above his right hand on the hood! SEE, I know Chit! LOL ...3rd cousin of Moose is on the pass side Joe G.


    I make thousands of new "friends" this past year and...still going! ,,, but pushing HARDER!..tossing shit clueless people out of my life to make "room" for decent folk in my head! LOL but so damn serious! I am now 66, I refuse to heal the "shit" anymore, let them go "elsewhere".. He He they so deserve the toss.. :)

    Hey... This is starting to get way off topic... add to that, drama... and that is a really quick way to get the thread closed. I'm gonna go clean it up a bit... But be warned.

    Thanks.

    Jamie had a photo made for me and one for inside their shop recently.. That is the name of their shop. See the brick place behind her?, it is their shop, and all that fancy stonewall work was a part of the immense redo of this old part of Coventry Ct, fancy brick sidewalks, vintage themed street lights, you name it...these old mill towns and 'lake towns" are coming back in rapid fashion in Eastern Ct! Wild! That place across the street is one other very hotspot restaurant/bar: The Bidwell Tavern.



    Her husband asked me at closing time on this Friday, "If you run across a nice vintage Fire hydrant for decorating the shop, grab it"...Well I showed up right before opening time on Saturday morning, I backed up to the front, went in and said "where you want the Fire hydrant" LMAO..He was so Stoked..then Jamie said let's do another pic of you two with Frank's vintage Chevy truck". It was posted on their FB page right then, as the hydrant too.. I don't have a way to get on there to post that pic here.

    Bye, ...Hey, I decided to try my hand at antique iron/steel related flipping... not car stuff, just cool decorative & structural things..even a spiral staircase, windmills, Victorian birdbaths, etc!...because I later that day, firmed up a deal on a huge amount of stuff hoarded by a guy my age who said " Frank, you hit me at the perfect moment, the wife and I wanted to off this stuff just yesterday!"
