Congrats Don! Your time finally came and you couldn't have been more deserving.

When you're done working on the car you should be able to kick back quite a few beers, so have a couple for me!

Guys & Gals....
Yesterday was an interesting day.... Lots of hurdles on the motor... And me breaking the AC Compressor was an expensive bummer that lead to more Grumpiness from me... Both of the ones I received were Locked solid.. I got into a light argument with the guy at the Parts store that ended with Give me my G** Damn money back... I ended up going to a JY to get the Compressor that will be here in the morning.... 95 is a funky year.. Working on this car coupled with the hot weather has been a Royal PITA.... But I had 2 good friends that were more than willing to help me out which made it a lot better..

I got a Call today from Willwren, Asked him WTF he wanted.... He started talking crap to me and then told me I needed to go read the forum... I was a little busy at the time and I think my attitude was showing through... After several minutes I did go in and look at the forum briefly.. And asked Brad how long he knew about this and didn't say anything.. I think I cursed at him a little... Then I just had nothing to say... No words at all..

I made the trip to CT for NEBF, It was a great trip and I made it all the way up and back with no issues at all.... Car ran great... A couple of weeks after I was home I was going through Port Saint John( Brad lives there ) And I mashed the gas to pass an idiot and heard a not so nice noise... I knew right then the motor could be done... Then we thought it was lifters so I went in and did the repair and the tick went away but the Thud thud thud was still there.... Off to go get a motor I went.. It hurt to crunch out the $$$ for it but it had to be done..

I am so touched that everyone is willing to help me out in this situation, I can't begin to put all of my thoughts or emotions into words...

Personally I have a very hard time accepting anything from people... And this was a hard thing for me to swallow... Out of all of the PIF'* we have done and I have given to all of them I think, I never expected I would be the one to get hit with a PIF fairy, never in a million years.. I just can't thank everyone enough... I don't know where to start or where to end.. All of you have humbled me more than I will ever be able to express..

I am glad that you all feel that I am a great guy and that I am deserving of the PIF... Never in a million years would I have thought that I left that much of an impression on all of you..

I still don't have all of the words yet.. But words will never express my Thanks to all of you


Don

I truly think the money has gone to a Good Man.

Your hard work and generosity doesn't go un-noticed around the forums.
I'm sure the money will help you out in many ways, sir.

leftd90, you gotta realize how hard it is to hide stuff from admins on this site, its impossible for all members to be advised.

To be honest, I wasnt even aware, so don't feel bad.

If you want, you can contribute, the fund is open until the weekend!
