Are you going down to Daytona? You should post some pics of some of the cars you prep there. Yes we got ice. Three days of freezing rain to sleet to ice back to freezing rain to sleet to ice, etc... A real pain. I had to drive over 110 miles in it Saturday. That was a real treat.

See you guys tomorrow, maybe! I'm outa here...

I hate ice storms. We were out of power [except for my generator] for 8 days in 02. I had the important stuff powered. Cable, frig, and furnace. Everything else was a camping trip.

I have pics of the shop and some of the Benz that we work on. Also have pics of the 997 that goes out tomorrow. I will put them on a memory stick and bring them home to post. Too cheap to put internet at the shop [requires DirectTV], plus no work would get done.

I should have a web site of the shop a few weeks after I get back from Daytona. That is the plan. The Katrina Project is about ready to media blast and paint so rebuilding is right afterwards.

Tsk, Tsk,
Thank you McBear, for drawing attention to my
phucked up grammar/spelling.
My shoolteaching mother would have been mortifed.
PS
I used to know what a "misrelated participle" was ?
But that knowledge never was much use.
Cheers to you Jillian,

I am using "offtopic" to conduct an impromptu study of "real life" Americans/values, the results do not encourage me to move to the US of A.

Even more PPS
Diana was a loose screw with a screw loose.
( Bred nice looking children though )
Hooray for Prince Charles and Camilla

Jakarta,
No you are wrong,
No Camels ( except in zoos ) and very few Kamils in N Ireland anyway
And I am not one, anyway, anyway.
Check with Ian, Jesus or Twodogs

Which car? Gotta pull for somebody. Love to get my hands on a cup car, I have a GT3 RS on order. It's a March build.
