So sorry Mike! I remember Sean talking about him before too. I know this will be a big loss for all of you. Had he been sick? I will remember his loved ones in my prayers

Sorry out and trying to type on this phone can be annoying
Not that I know of Diane. Didnt see him that often since they joined a new club.
He had the two Gray Hennessey Cars 650SS and 700ZL1 He was parked next to me at FBody last year. There was only one Phil. When God made the mold He definitely broke it after.
Having a moment of silence after the loudest exhaust contest Sat followed by all the cars Reving it up all together.

Everything seems OK now, at least I hope. Claire drove it to and from the body shop, and she says the steering is better now. Front cover is secure with no sanding marks.

Thank you. yeah should be really nice. Still kind of surreal.:(
Twisty Hope to see you back here when you get your wind back.
Rick glad your car came out OK

Also went today to get estimate on my wife's Cruze. While she was in Target Mon night someone backed into her car then tried to leave Target Employee and Shopper stopped him.Target also had it on Video to them. Tore about a foot gash in front fascia. $1200 est.
Doesn't look like much but hit hard enough to damage absorption bar underneath.How do you back up that far and hit someone when they are that deep in parking spot??

Detailed car. Met daughter for dinner. Packed clothes and other goodies. Enough for a month. Only gone 3 and half days and only 10 miles away Happy Hump Day just a little late. Have a good night gang.

It is always something huh? Life just keeps throwing us all, different sorts of crap to deal with. And we will, each in our own time & way, and hopefully find & enjoy the beauty in between. Ruby Too is some of that beauty for us now but she is also throwing us a few challenges as all pets do. I'm glad she has some spunk & mischievousness. It is cute though. Just requires some work. I don't have any notes tonight which is good except that I only had a few clients show up and that means bad "productivity". The presures in this business are worse now that at any point in my career. That part sucks! That is what makes me count the days until I can retire. The kids, even when they scream, hit, throw furnature, kick, spit, pee, puke, bite, curse or whatever, don't get to me. I know in a few more sessions they will start getting better and the next one I see will probably be one of the ones that is getting better. Hang in there crew. Have a good evening.

Yes it sure does feel like it at times but there still is a lot of beauty in-between all the bumps in the Road. Thanks and goodnight gang for real this time.Just can't stay awake or is that stay away?

So sorry for your loss, Mike.... Sounds like Phil was a great guy, and the loud exhaust tribute is very fitting!!

I got almost done with my project today, should be able to finish it tomorrow if I go in early again. Whew!! Heard a rumor today that management bonuses should be on the next check - that would give me the cash for Ladybug's next mod....

I would like to offer my condolences for the loss of your friend. Originally, I was going to say that I would have liked to have known the guy, but then after one of the later posts, realized that I did actually get to meet him at FBody Gathering. Though I didn't get to spend much time with him, he was a very nice guy.

I am sorry that I won't have the opportunity to spend more time with him at future Gatherings.

As we are all preparing for the 2nd Annual Sunshine State Camaro Rally I need to pass along some very bad news that we have lost a fellow member of C5, a friend, and participant in the Camaro Rally last night “racebum” passed away. While we all come together for the 2nd Annual SunShine State Camaro Rally please keep Phil’s wife Donna and family in your prayers.

RIP Phil tear up the track up in heaven

“SCCA GT-1 Class National Champion Philip Simms, of Orlando, Fla”

Sky Man, sorry to hear about the loss of your friend, Racebum. Condolences to his family and friends.

RIP Racebum.

Janice that's because you southerners can't drive in snow. Same thing here. Schools have been delayed for virtually nothing. Starting this winter the township sprays some kind of car corroding stuff on the road before each storm.

Good morning we got a little more snow than you Jan but not much maybe an inch. Same forecast though snow, rain, sleet etc. They don't close or delay anything here for that amount though if they did nothing would ever be open LOL. My wifes sister is in town from Florida so we are going out to dinner with them tonight as she is leaving tomorrow to go back home. Have a good day all.

We ended up with several inches of the wet, heavy snow over the ice that came first. Schools ran out of snow days so no day off for them this time.

Yeah, they sprayed that crap here again last night for a few flakes of snow. I guess some folks want to protect their job security.

I'm glad spring break is almost here for schools. Maybe everyone can get well & stop passing all these different things around. Between staff, kids & parents everyone around me is sick, Even Mike who never gets sick. I hope my luck continues to hold out.
