Someday, I'll have someone to reconstruct my 20's (the 60's) for me. It must have been one Helluva ride. I don't seem to remember very much about it............

Still got a pic of it around somewhere....

Yeah, but the problem was half that gold was seeds. LOL I miss those days and I am glad I survived them.

I figure that life is a journey that is not intended to end at the grave in a well preserved body, but instead to arrive skidding sideways, totally worn out, yelling Holy Sh!t..... What a Ride!!!!!!!! I'm damn near 70 (if you gotta know)

Oh Hell no!!!!! I got all new plumbing last year, and my own little EMT (defibrillator) that walks around with me. I figure I'm good for at least another 40 or so anyway.

Bet the parts/labor on that put the BMW stealerships to shame....

I am sure I have one of those in my future.

Maybe there will be some good DIY's then?

Is it a 3 pedal?

I'm just sayin!
