Well that wouldn't be hard - I tend to post in between other things happening and the brevity of my posts probably reinforces a hopefully inaccurate impression of curmudgeonry.

Very nice to meet people I'd 'talked to' for years on the fora.

Spent 4 plus hours getting all the freaking bug bodies off the front end of the Punisher Hauler followed by machine polish and wax. Very hot job

Rob,
The trim on your house almost matches the paint of Punisher. Please tell me you "mod'ed" your house! If you did, you are my hero.

Mods: too many to list!

Can't wait to see everyone in the Ozarks. Happy Cruising.
Anyone know what happened to Maui Sky? He dropped off the edge of the earth. I sent him PMs but no joy.

I talked to Bill at NASSAM in Lexington. He's been having problems with the car. Nothing major, but it's supercharged, among other mods, and nobody local to him will touch it. He lives in MI, and it looked like he was going to have to ship it to DDM to get it fixed.

Thanks for the feedback. He dropped out of the forum years ago and after being so active it was concerning

Bill ,Maui Sky, lives very close to me here in MI. When I bought my coupe he liked it and located one in MO for his wife. He put his Sky on the lift and it sat there for two years. Note: has always had transmission issues since adding supercharger. Finally almost two years ago we talked him into starting the Sky. It was running good and he decided to leave the coupe in MI and take the Sky to his winter FL home. Made it down there just fine and then at a car show ,after hood up for hours, when he started it it just chugs. He ended up buying a vette in FL and put the Sky in storage garage. It is still there and it's going on two years. We got it started in October and it seemed to be running good but next day started chugging again. We have no idea what is causing this. He has since sold the coupe and wants to bring Sky back to MI to attend some of our MKC events. Been working for months to get it up to DDM for them to get it running(hopefully). I think Dave is going to pick it up and get it running. I guess that's one way to keep miles down!
