I'm fine with whatever comes about..... I had a goal, I accomplished that, and I'm good.... It'll be a tough pill for a bit but I'll get me a follow on car, leave it BONE stock and just enjoy driving it....I still only have just over 23,000 miles on Brandi.... I'll travel around supporting others.... I'm thinking a C7 ZO6 or more likely a ZL1.... Maybe a ZL1 1LE...
This bums me out.

Sorry to hear things don't appear to be turning out to your liking man.

I fell ya (had my episode in October and just had an ICD installed). So far, I’m able to drive — waiting to see when I can race again.

My car is pretty much done — and I can still daily it fortunately. Wing is all I have left — for road course stuff.

ZL1 1LE - that would be my choice and yes, bone stock too for me from here on out...

Keep us posted!

I'm fortunate I don't have implanted electronics.... I do have the stents, and the doc thought they might have collapsed recently but a Cardiac Cath ruled that out..... I'll plug along checking out this retired status....

When I get the new car I'll see if I can head up Dallas area way and we can sit down to dinner.... I think I remember you are in the Dallas area...

Bro, please don't be bummed.... I'm north of the dirt line and I'll have another car, and be able to travel and attend events, and while I won't be driving it, the latest news is the guy looking to buy the car has decided it would be best to keep the big motor in Brandi, and race it, while making his other Mile car the more sedate show/drive car....

So, Brandi and I both will continue on... and the cool thing is the same builder tuner I've always used will continue building and tuning the car as well as he'll get to drive it some.... He is looking forward to that part...

I would love that! Live in Carrollton - hit me up!

I have the 'device' now (ICD or as it's called 'implantable cardiac device) so I know what that means for sure.

Keep the Faith...

At the Texas Mile we refer to it as bullshitting the best...

It was an absolute pleasure to finally meet you in person... yes, I hope we can meet up more often than once in 57 years.. (my age) or even more than once a year...
