Thanks, guys.  It is OUR SharkBytes and YOUR stories that make it great!!!

Again, my apologies to whomever wrote the Chrome Bumper story.  After having the flu, I apparently came down with an attack of the dumb@$$.  I deleted my entire PM Inbox.  Fortunately, I had gotten the stories onto Word. 

Norsky, yours will be in next time.  I didn't realize Josh's story was so long and I left out about 3 pages of text and several pix that deal with getting to the darned guages.  It will get posted on here soon.  I'll get the whole enchilada to Adam W and we'll let you know where it is.

BTW, just because it's Chrome Bumper, one would think that, perhaps the caretaker might just come home with a rubber bumper car (BLACK!!!) or some such thing.  I guess he could even have a "Girl Next Door" bumper car (BLACK!!!!)

I gotta tell you guys, I really get a kick out of pulling this together.  Keep those stories coming.  Adam says we can go longer than 12 pages, so if I get responses like I did this time, we might grow it by 2 or 3 pages, you never know.

Thanks again for the compliments, but you guys make it possible for me to put out the rag!!!

A little late in coming, but I just read the winter issue, WOW, great job everyone, this is a far better news letter than most small towns and real pleasure to read, great wide range of stories and interest and a great lay put with the colors and pictures.
The article on the LED switch was awesome with detail and pictures, a person like myself that has little experience could do that task with that article, WOW
Joel great info looking forward to more that type of info that you remember in the back of your head and when there is an issue with the tranny, you can recall where you read it and come back and print if out, thank you.
To all of the mini meets around, nice to see you all are following the Northwest Group (LOL) on getting together, I have been around here about 3 or 4 years and it is nice to finally see the small pockets of members reaching out to each other and taking this great web club to the next level, no other forum can say that, and the stories and pictures give the rest of us an insight to members and there web names, going to suggest that when taking photo of member to list names in order so others can out a name to the face (in at least one picture) that is what we will do in the northwest region Thank you to all that made each of these little meet and greats a success and no that others that did not make this one will try harder to make the next now.
Chrome Bumper, Wow, a late night thought picked to Adam as a way to see if other would feed off of each other has surpassed all of the fore sight I had when became to be.  Everyone can and should write a little story for the story, short or long it is all the same, this is OUR FAIRY TALE, and we are making it live on, thank you to all that contribute to this off the wall thought.
Thanks to the many members that help Adam put out should a great piece of this web club, I have made my mind up to print and archive each one (when I have a few minutes) (one a day)
Just felt like I needed to share, thanks for letting me ramble (good thing I don't write no article huh)


Okay its not a C3 but it is cool as hell.....
