  • 6tB1rd is back

    I know I'm new but it sure does feel like it, since I have been gone for 9 months, Wow I sure did miss you all.

    I finally got back to work after 14 Month of not working I forgot what work was like. .

    As some of you know I had my Bird up for sale several times when I first got laid off, well I did not sell her every time I got an offer on her I did not have to sell her because the money came in another way, so 16 months later I still have her and out of 4 Cars she is the only one on the road today driving her back and forth to work, man 60 miles round trip at 12 miles to the gallon Ouch .

    Well that's about it for now have to get ready for work

    Glad to be back, and I will after work, gota search for a speedo repair shop any recommendations out there.

    Got told the other day that I never made it over 75 but no less the 70 how would I know I don't have a speedo

    Great to be back

        Hey, George! Glad to see you back and glad to see you are working again, and was able to keep your Tbird! I see she is the one still on the road even though the gas gets you in the wallet! Good luck and we missed you also!

              George ( Colonel ) welcome back to the site and as you can tell from the responses, it would appear that you were missed. I too, am glad to hear that you didn't sell your bird and now you just have to work on your golf game.

                      That's OK Dan,

                      I've had worse things happen, anyway it is good to be back and being able to sit here and look over all I have missed.

                        Till them you could pick up a cheap GPS to tell you how fast you are going. I have used mine a number of times to figure out how the speedo is doing in a car.
