    Got tired of the plain Jane look of the 454 in the coupe so got some shiny stuff for it . Got some cancer that keeps me from doing too much work but this was easy and let me piddle with the car. Just air cleaner and valve covers but dressed it up some.

  3. I agree now while you are at it get better so you can come help me wrench around on some stuff.

    Getting better that is a good thing.

    Dude.. been surrounded by those with cancer both past and present and the one thing I know is that ANYTHING is possible. Even when things look bleak you can definitely turn it around.. I've seen this happen in my own family. AND I firmly believe a positive attitude can make a big difference. Go forth and conquer!

    Hold your head up and keep wrenching. My Pops had a pretty bad run a few years ago and things didn't look good. It was a rough patch for a couple years surgeries and chemo) but this past season he hit 4 or 5 "cruise-ins" a week and a few major events, so I'd say he got his wind back! Stay positive, they say it helps the body to heal it's self.
