That said, I am so glad I found it. I have learned so much in such a short period of time and its thanks to all of you. Ok so let me begin:

I just drooled over your camaro for the last 10mins! Very tasteful mods and a Beautiful Car. My favorite Pic is yours next to that 69 Vette

Your Grandson is a very Handsome boy, and lucky to have and awesome Grandpa. Makes me appreciate the time I had with mine a little more.
