To commemorate the C3VR BIRTHDAY I would like to show my appreciation of this wonderful site, those that operate it, and the members.

In saying this I am offering up 5 STANDARD MEMBERSHIPS to be given away to current trial members seeking an upgrade to become part of our C3 family in a more perminant manner.

Here is the criteria: In order to be eligible for this offer, you need to have at least 5 meaningful posts.

(This is the same criteria utilized the last time a few memberships were given away)

This is how I became a part of this site and a few years ago and I still feel indebted to itsdave92570 afterall these years. SEE POST

One last request, Adam if you would be so good as to monitor the this and annouce the winners I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks again, and good luck to all!!!        Tux...

[QUOTE=R75VETTE] Sorry dont know much about these things but what is a post [/QUOTE]

THIS was your third one! Anytime you respond in a forum, and/or "post" a question/answer/info, that is a post. They are automatically counted. Look at the area in your "info" box, on the sides of the page(where your screen-name is), and you'll see how many posts you have to date. I think the term "meaningful" would be something technical, such as "How do I...", or for info of interest to the site, such as "I found this product/service, etc. that really worked for this or that problem...".

So...jump in and grab a-hold! It ain't that hard to post/respond to 5 things...
Look thru some of the threads, and see if you can add to anything, as far as info, or even adding a question. You can also start a new thread for something that you may need to know.

MEANINGFUL - As defined by Webster - To add value to, something which helps us do what we want.

MEANINGFUL - As defined by Tux... - A good chuckle, a lesson learned, show me how or show me the light, a question to be asked PICS..., a roasting for all to enjoy,

Lotsa folks here to accomodate.... so post away my young TRIAL FRIENDS!!!!!

Well I just posted this in my Mushy brakes thread, but I thought it might contribute a chuckle so I'll post it here for your enjoyment:
 
Went to Wendy's 2 hours ago, brakes working wonderful (better than ever), if still a little squishy.
 
Turn off the car at the speaker so they can hear me... and when I put the key in the run position, the car starts chugging. It was like the batt was almost dead, and the starter was turning the engine over slow, but I never went to start it. I freak out and try to turn the key off, and do, but it still does it for like 20 more seconds. Smoke starts pouring out of the hood, and everything goes black in the car. No electricity at all.
 
I'm guessing the starter solenoid and starter are toast now, probably the battery too. I hope nothing else besides that. Had to have it towed home for $80.
 
And to top it all off, when pushing it to a parking lot, I ran over my big toe on my left foot which is bleeding now and i can't really move it. I think it's probably broke but I'll go to the hospital tomorrow morning.

defseqx has 17 posts. That alone should qualify him.
Then there's the sympathy story that I'd assume he made up to better his odds... however... he couldn't make that up! That's too damn funny! (And sad all that the same time!) 

Hope your toe (and Vette) are better soon!

Damn dude!  That's gotta hurt!  Hope you are OK.  Ya know, for less than $80, you can get a AAA towing package and if the driver is the same guy I had, you might get your car paintedRolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing

The really important question is...did you get your food from Wendy's?Rolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing

Went to the hospital this morning. Hyperextended big toe, stretched ligaments, and hairline fracture. Also bleeding from ruptured blood vessels.

 
As far as the car, still dunno what's up with it. I'll try to get under it today if I can after work, but I think the starter is toast, maybe battery. Thanks for the kind words guys, I appreciate it.

Ouch! But I have to admit that the same thing happened to me once when I was pushing the '81 I used to have. I just about reached a gas station when my fuel pump crapped out. As the car was slowing down I jumped out to push while it was still moving, and it ran over my right foot.    It wasn't as bad as yours though! Good luck with the foot and with the vette!!

Alright well to hijack the thread a little more lol, I got it all fixed up. The starter was toasted (and the wire boots covering the terminals on it were what smoked), I replaced it and had the batt charged and all is well! She starts better too!
 
As for my toe, well it's doing fine other than some minor pains. I have to wear steel toe boots to work on the jets every day so I'm going to wear them with the car now too lol.
