Yeah, I can be wordy sometimes. Especially when its about me!

But really, my Dad gave up everything to provide for the family. Now that I have a wife and little girl, I can much better appreciate and understand what he REALLY did for us.

A hug from your son or daughter is priceless. My oldest turn 14 next month. I remember every detail about the day she was born. The same is true for all three of my daughters. Every time you take that little hand in your remember the feeling. All too soon it will be an adult hand. I am on the other end of that with my 94 year old father. Enjoy every day. No one is promised tomorrow.

Amen!

SO true Pete. Nothing beats watching my lil 8 month old grow. Hearing her say "dadda" last week melted my heart. Little girls sure know how to get to their daddy's heart!

Hope your father is doing better, many prayers for you and your family.

Congratulations Redemption, well deserved!

One of the best looking SIM's I've seen, and the back story in your thread is inspiring. Great to read stuff like this

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate the kinds words. Ive been thinking about this all day, and I think I finally know how to say it:

This just proves to me that you dont have to spend 10's of thousands of dollars in mods to have a really bitching car... Even though we all want to spend 10's of 20's of thousands of dollars in mods! LOL

Yes, my truck is very jealous and upset with me right about now...


All the photo credit (The really awesome ones!!) has to go to Ddavis.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=106756

He shot these a couple of weeks back. Ive got some great tips from him, and hopefully my photography skills will be half as good as his!

Think I'll celebrate with just 1 more...

Hey Jason I was planning on going with the LG system with headers and no cats. Im a bit spooked by your quiet comments and not liking the mufflers. However you are running cats and stock manifolds right? That should make it quite a bit quieter don;t you think? You still unhappy with your exhaust?

Very nice BTW, love those wheels with the silver paint and GFX...

Oh yeah, I've still got cats and stock manifolds, But the sound is great. Its a deep, mellow tone. I was expecting a little louder, but I still love it.

Headers will be soon, but I will still run cats.

The craftsmanship on the headers and exhaust is the best I have ever seen. Hand welded, that looks better than some of the computer welded headers on the market.

I recommend the system to anyone!

Jason
