So all my posts under my REAL name are gradually going into the forum basement and now I am using 68CBARGE same is on the Drydock to avoid any confusion to y'all people so you know who I am.

As mentioned on other forums abd Facebook,the car is going into paint the next month or so.

Well, get us some pictures. I check here daily just to see if anyone still shows up, lots of info here so hope people are at least looking after Dave was so kind as to keep the site alive. I get an entry about once every two to three weeks, so kind of slow, but hope to see and read about the C Barge.

Well. another "recycled" member is here again...  since it changed couldn't get on and whenever I checked in, no action for months at a time.  Glad to see Leaburn's car may be here with pics!!  I talk to Lea on phone once in a while and he stopped in last year on the way to Carlisle, it's always good to see him! 

So my last 2 Mopars, advertised on here in "For Sale" have been sold.  The one car I miss is my '71 Fury III and if the right one comes along woupld buy another.

Meanwhile I'm playing with...here it comes: a '58 Olds and a '79 Electra ... "ducks and runs" :o

Hope you're OK Steve, we're all getting old,...70 is getting too close for comfort!!

Yeah, well, they ain't Mopars, but "old" is good, so I can live with it. What's on the agenda for these two? I would think a nice 383 under the hood of a '58 Olds would make her scoot pretty good, and Buicks, although a little new, do have a comfortable ride, so good for you, and thanks for showing up, love the company!

Well the '58 has her original 371 Rocket, so she scoots pretty good already, and the Electra is part Olds too, an Olds 403 4 bbl, about as good as it got by '79, (which isn't saying much) but a comfy DD.... that said she may go away if the right 70/71 Fury pops up.

Glad to see Leaburn showed up, maybe Stitcherbob, AZblackhemi and others will see it ain't dead yet.

Yeah, sorry to say I don't get much response from you guys over here, but I do check every day just to make sure whoever posts gets some kind of response. I haven't gotten to do anything with my list of cars, but I do have a friend that has (gasp) Fords, as in Lightning trucks, and I just got done helping him build one as a clone, an F-150 with all the Lightning components (a two year buying spree of his), and since the engine had to be torn down because of a broken timing chain rail that bent 4 valves, I got to port the heads. Needless to say, of the four supercharged Lightnings he owns, the new one is the fastest one, by a LOT (hard to imagine with a blower, but it's all in the flow). Needless to say, glad to see someone visiting me here, yell at the guys and have them visit, too.

Those are fun trucks. a friend of my daughter's in Denver has a red '15 or '16 Raptor... talk about scoot!
Speaking of Scoot, anyone know what's up with Scotty? ...still have his green Newport 'vert?
I don't really know what's up over at C Bodies only or the Dry Dock as I rarely go there, no Mopars at present, though have considered a '57 Dodge Coronet recently, still livin' in the '50s.

Scott is good. My wife and I had breakfast with him and his family last month when he was here in Phoenix for his SF Giants spring training games. And yes he still has his 'vert.
