Good speed to your recovery !
Jim, all the best for your surgery and recovery.
Any update on Mr. Sibley?
Thoughts and prayers for your quick recovery.
The update is good. I just got a clean bill of health from the disease doctor. Next stop is surgery, then a couple of months of recovery followed by years of rusty junk!
Excellent news Jim.
You will be in my prayers . It’s not a manly thing to do to discuss prayers , but they do work . I’m living proof 26 years ago this March 12th , I can remember like it was this morning a Dr coming into my hospital room and stating “ you have stage 4 cancer in your limp nodes . You have a 20% survival rate for 5 years .” Well the prayers and God’s will pulled me through thus far . Again I’ll be praying for you and your family . Now about the Willy’s , I see you now have a 3W to tinker with , hell why didn’t you contact me ? We both could have been happy campers ! Good Luck , all will be fine .
I threw the willys up for sale to fund life after surgery. I had the 3w already, it was just in need of a lot of frankenwelding. It all worked iut and with gods grace and some good surgeons i will be around to see it on the road. Prais gos for the everyday miracles, and thank him for rusty fords to tack together!
You're great, Jim...an inspiration in many ways.
Nothing but the best to you.
Having been in the fitness industry for over 25 years and working with cardiac groups, patients and doctors for that time I can tell you the most important thing is to be active once you can and stay active. A doc told me long ago “motion is lotion” your body is the only machine that improves by being worked! So don’t be afraid to work it with common sense of course!! Buy a good chest strap heart monitor and get your BPM up to a comfortable working pace and do the work. Ever have any questions message me any time!!

Fitnessguy, thank you. I am all for doing what it takes to get back at it. I will message you if i need to. Thank you again.
Best wishes for a speedy full recovery.
Good luck Jim hope it goes to plan.
Get well soon
Projects are great for recovery time as long as you don't push it too hard. Even when you may not feel up to working on it you can build in your head.
I am in week 3 of physical therapy following my heart attack. 5 days a week of working out and like I told my wife this morning, I have cant remember feeling this good. My order of priorities goes like this; Take care of yourself first, keep the wife happy, make sure the kids know you are spending all your money before you die and then build cars and have fun driving them...and for all the children of the world to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace.
Just a word of assurance Jim. Sept. of 2013 was my time on the table. Aortic valve replaced, three way bypass. It was a Monday, was home Thursday at noon. Never felt a thing, never no pain, was on my feet walking Tuesday morning, and back to my old self in a week. Best of every thing, just keep those rides roll'n out of the shop.
Hot Rod Coupes 'Rock' … but we already know that, right Jim?
God Bless brother
Sending positives vibes from the Southern hemisphere Jim. I'm looking forward to watching the 32 build, after your recovery.
You had your sternum split open and recovered that fast!
LO I had mine split and drove myself home from the hospital 5 days later. And made my lady happy 12 days after joining the zipper club.
Theres a game plan! We're all pullin for you and look forward to your next build. God Speed.
Tomorrow i go in for my pre surgery pep talk. Here we go! Wish me luck and say a little prayer.
Done...rest easy and hope your in and out like Greased Lightning...Hotrods to You Jim...
All in ,Jim.Rest well...
Jim, those surgeons do those things like we do oil changes. Your in good hands and will make a quick recovery. Sending good thoughts your way.
Good health and God bless.
Thanks. I got to much rust to grind to be done here.
Went in for stress test Sept last year,then Angiogram stopped and said I needed the whole works. In October had heart surgery in for a week,then Cardiac rehab until January. Now my back is weak but I just replaced an axle on my 57,brake shoes,new wheel bearings. I go a little slower but at least i'm still going . Take time to heal then go slow!
