    Thanks Ryan.

    As far as making it back, I don't know I've been in Hospice for 3 months now, and so far I'm not noticing anything that can be directly linked to the cancer. My back has been really bad the last couple of months, but a lot of that can be attributed to the degenerative arthritis which gets bad every time the weather changes and it seemed to do that on an every other day basis most of the winter. When I can I end up out in the shop working on the 68. The goal is to get it built and if I fell capable making one last trip back, but who knows.....at least it gives me a goal and beats the hell out of sitting in the house and watching TV for the brain dead. LOL.

    “…..One question tho.. why FECUSTOM? a former life story? 8-)…..”

    Come on Mike, you know better than to give a gabby old man like me an opening like that……..of course there’s a story.

    HA! There is always a story right? And I just realized it says "Gabby" old man.. I thought it read Crabby, old man... LOL!
    Great write-up too. Like you I enjoy the mechanicals best, and the paint / body work least... Did you get to at least take the big car for a ride and see what that 401 could do?

    "......Did you get to at least take the big car for a ride and see what that 401 could do?......"

    Just yard drove it (a couple of times ) It was healthy. The cars traded hands a couple of more times since I sold it. Both times to other acquaintances of mine. One sold off the Tri-Power but did do the interior and started on the body work. When I talked to the current owner last he was digging up parts for a 4 speed swap. Oh well maybe some day it will actually end up on the streets again.
