We took the Bird, hoping it would change the Mrs mind about selling her, to the first show of the year. About 100 cars showed up and we snagged a top 25. She gets alot of attention, kind of surprised me the attention she got. The judges were going crazy over her. Well it is a big difference when the judges are our age and not a 20 something yr old kid that is blown away by a 2011 Challenger, then asks you, hey what is this? I have been to those shows.... Also my wife is doing better with heavy meds, no "C" has been diagnosed and she will need to have 6-12 inches of large and small intestine removed, no biggie as I have had 6 surgeries with my kidney disease. I told her they will take the bad out and sew you back up. You will be fine :)

Congratulations on the trophy and also the diagnosis! Both are great news, and especially the latter! She sure is a pretty Tbird and I can certainly see why she would attract the attention she does. Many in the younger generation do not even know what these cars are! From the oldtimers, I usually get, "oh, yeah! I had one of those! I loved that car! I wish I still had it!"

Greg glad to hear your wife's diagnosis was positive and also that her upcoming surgery will clear up this situation. You and your wife will be to many more shows and perhaps if you keep getting the attention, you will be like Ray and have to build a trophy case:eek:
