So is everyone hunkered down somewhere without access to the internet or what?  I can't believe how quiet the site has been lately,  spring is almost here cars will be coming out from under those tarps, lets whoop it up a bit guys.  I'm an early riser and i look forward to the chit chat on the site to pass the time till i leave for work.  Surely someone out there has a story to tell, so come on guys lets hear some gossip.LOL

Thumbs Up I agree! I'm in here most everyday early. This site is NO WAY as slow as the C-4 site. I jump in there on occasion to incite some chatter, but no one is willing.  PLEASE try to come to the event hosted by the Registry in Buffalo, New York. Lots of chatter and fun loving people. Keep the heart girl, it will liven up when the weather gets compliant. Clap

CoolThumbs Up YEAH!  I knew we loved EBO for a reason. Evil SmileHug  I have "SOME" brown showing in my lawn. The garage door still has well over two foot of WHITE stuff in front of it. No chance of a drive in the close future.

Make that a big Island with lots of winding roads. Here in Utah it's been record warm pretty much all year. Fruit trees have already blossomed, and, so have the weeds. Also, my car is going to get painted this week. I'm so ready to have it back where it belongs.

booked my 92 in to the body shop today so it goes in on the 15 of april, finally going to get those stress cracks on the fenders fixes.  I'm really thinking i might just be there at the gathering if i could get someone to go with me i would take 2 weeks and drive up there but so far no takers.

84 in Des Moines, IA on Monday.... Tuesday morning it was in the 30's coming out of the hotel....  shocking contrast.
April 1st will probably be the coming out weekend for my toys in MN.....weather permitting!  Still busy swapping snow tires, putting snow shovels away so they do not fall on car etc.

You do not have to buy an island.  Can you say California from just north of San Francisco to the southern border.  

Have not seen any snow nor much water either.  That could be a problem this summer.  

Got to get the car out of the shop and start the body work before it gets to hot to work outside.

Been on "The Garden Isle" of Kauai for nearly 2 weeks and have seen only 1 Corvette - a silver '62.  Lots of Mustang and Camaro convertibles running around with an equal number of 4 door Jeeps. 
 
Will be back in Minne-snow-ta Sunday afternoon.  Have heard rumors that all of the white stuff has vanished.  Certainly hope so...!!!

Hey there!
 
I check the site frequently but you're right, it is very quiet.
Everything was going well for me as I had the car out on monday of this week (I called off work for the day. I was sick...Wink).
Anyway it turns out from sitting all winter, Im gonna need a new left front caliper. oh well. Its par fore the course when you dont get in and pump the brakes occasionally. 
But now it snowed again today! Angry So that means another 2 weeks before the salt and cinders get washed off the roads again.
But on a positive note, I'm headed to warm south Carolina to see the little woman tomorrow!  Gonna spend a few days. Supposed to be 74 degrees and sunny there tomorrow.....

How is that possible, where the heck do you live?  If you move closer to Canada you wouldn't have that problem and you could work on your car anytime.
