Didn't even realize I put that down when I joined. Usually just put down KC metro area. I guess we could be neighbors then.

Yes we are neighbors. I live south of Menorah Hospital at 119th and Nall and thanks for the info concerning removal of the side-pipe inserts. I've had the car for a couple of years, the side-pipes were on there when I got it.

Now its coming to me. Three or four weeks ago my wife and I were walking through the neighborhood and stopped and talked to you since your car was setting out by the street. I remember asking you if your car was a 73. At the time I told you I had a black 1980 with sidepipes……...what a small world. We'll have to get together sometime over a beer or whatever. I have driven by your house a couple of times in the vette but haven't seen you outside.

Actually you drove by Jack's house because he has a 73 orange Roadster. Mine is sitting in the garage with the engine on the engine stand ready to install. Just have to  finish rebuilding the front suspension.

He did mention that there was someone down the street that had an orange vette in his garage. So that must be you?? My wife and I walked down that way but none of the garage doors were open. He kind a point out where you lived - LOL. Offer still stands for as beer sometime. Good to know there are at least three of us in the general vicinity. I'm just east in the Deer Run neighborhood along Nall.

The three of us should start our own club since we're so close. Jack also has an old Trans Am which I don't know what the year is.

LOL on starting club. I'll send you a private message with my contact #. Maybe we can help each other with technical support or an extra pair of hands when needed if your up for that.
