Thumbs up 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.
