    I know most of you don't know me or care ,but I've been around here for a loooong time and I just finished my last day in the "salt mines."

    This message is mostly for you young guys .I just want to say "Hang in there" I know life's a bitch sometimes and you get handed a bucket of shit way too often,but if you hang in and stay true to your friends, it WILL all be worth it.

    I have lived a lot of my hotrod life vicariously thru a lot of you because you got to travel to some great HAMB events. (Especially you DENISE, )but now I'm going to travel in my roadster and get to meet a lot of you,so ...... see you on the road !!!!

    Enjoy your retirement. I retired last July and can cruise any time I want. It's worth all those years of work. Let us know in 6 months or so how much fun you are having.

    I didn't think retirement was possible anymore... Work, work, work, then you die...

    Congrats! Not many people these days can do that.

    way to go, i know it has been a long haul. i have been retired 6 years now and it is a rough life style, but some one has to do it. forget keeping up with what day it is and just try to remember what month it is. enjoy and take time for yourself.
