Let`s get Smolck headers for Christmas

OK, folks,

In the spirit of the season, and to support the camaraderie of the E46 Forum, I`m putting out the idea of getting some (badly-needed) headers for Smolck. For those who may not be aware, he has helped many people from this forum (and others), often traveling to their homes, and working on their cars for free....THAT shows a lot of heart !
And, being a single-income Dad with 4 kids, you know money is tighter than a snail`s ass....
I believe in the "Pay It Forward" concept....it helps to make the world a better place. We have a chance to repay him for his kindness and generosity, so, let`s do it....

I will collect any donation (no matter how small or how large) via my PayPal account, and transfer the funds to Smolck on Christmas Eve. I will make the first donation to kick things off. Please mark it "Gift for Smolck". My PayPal info: archerenterprises77@gmail.com

TIA,

Bob

I ain't got the words for you and all the people here. I am speechless. Seriously, I have no idea what to say.

Gift on it's way! Shad has helped me too many times to count. If anyone deserves it, it's him.

Donation sent. Merry Christmas Smolk, I think I speak for most when I say that your cavalier attitude and overall knowledge of these cars has helped me out on more than a handful of occasions over the past few years. I am glad to donate to the cause to keep you around for a few more!

Happy holidays to everyone.

Re: Let`s get Smolck headers for Christmas

I am humbled guys. Merry Christmas back to all of you. If I can do anything for any of you, I will.

I know it is not unique to me, but just yesterday I was telling my wife how much Christmas has become a chore. So hard to deliver "the goods" for kids these days. When I was 9 years old (like my youngest son) I wanted G.I. Joe guys. He wants a LAPTOP! Anyways, I was complaining to my wife saying I can't wait for this to be over.

Then you guys come along (as you have in the past) and bring the magic back to Christmas for me. I feel like a kid again.

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU ALL!

You can post up a video of you beating your nieces 323 after the new headers and I will be happy

Smolck, your demonstrations (youtube videos) have helped whenever I have had questions. I may not post much, but lurk almost everyday
. I look forward to reading your posts.

FastBob, thanks for setting this up and everything you contribute to the forum.

Donation on its way. Have a great holiday.

My bro in law has said he wants to put the 426 stroker out of his mustang in it. Something tells me I would notice that though.

Do a detailed header install when you replace them on your car, and I'll be satisfied . I plan on doing the job when it gets warmer out. And could use something with a bit more detail than what's out there in the E46 community already .

DONE! I'll enlist one of my kids as camera man! Might even see if my sister will let me use her HD camera and tripod. (although shaky one handed videos are kinda my trademark!)

Smolck also writes an exceptionally well-written blog; check it out. I'm sending in a small contribution to defray his journalistic expenses (or buy headers, whichever has higher priority).

You don't want a Koenigsegg. It's a pos from what my friend tells me. He likes his Bugatti Veyron 10x more.
