The time and expertise you've donated to others in this club to no benefit of your own far exceeds any amount of money that would ever be possibly raised. You've personally helped me through some issues that I was 0% sure of myself on and you got me into a state of mind that allowed me to complete the job correctly and efficiently. I couldn't think of a better person to be PIF'd :P

Now get that thing running RIGHT!

John... Buddy I knew you could do it... I mean if you can tear the tank out of a Rusty under body and get it all back together again you can replace a master cylinder.. You listened to what I was telling you, But you were so scared to do it.... All I had to do was get you over the hurdle and you were good to go... Now you'll know how to change a Master cylinder on an H or C body if you ever come across someone who needs master cylinder help..

And thanks for the Kudos

Haha, it sounds simple when just reading it, but some things really seem like a hurdle to me until I do them. And once I do something, I almost want to do it again just for the sake of having the knowledge. That MC was a piece of cake, but I don't think i coulda done it withoutcha. Even with that half assed bleeder kit they supplied.

Don now i think we are going to have to swap and test drive each others cars when i make it down there sooner or later.
You are one of the people that have helped me change the way i think about working on cars.

My Dad said something to me today that really made me feel good inside and happy to be part of Bonneville Club.
He said "Ever sense you joined that Bonneville Club, you have done more things to your car then i ever thought you could ever do. You just jump right in there and do it"

Don you are one of the people that helped me get to that spot

Big Thanks to Don and a Bigger thanks to the Whole BonnevilleClub

Alright, now that I am home, washed up, and somewhat fed...

Don, you are one character I truly consider a friend. You took my SSEi in when I couldn't find a place to store it while I moved to Orlando, went with me on many junkyard runs to find the missing/broken pieces of the puzzle, and was right there in the thick of it all during SEBF last year in the mad dash to put the motor together. Not to mention all the times you helped me out afterwards.

Seeing you get this PIF is something along the lines of seeing you hit the lottery...you don't expect anything when playing, but after you scratch the surface and see that you won, it really brightens the day!

Now then, we talked about doing up your trans, and you know the ideas I have formulating in my mind. We'll get that done up sometime soon

I'm bushed...off to bed I go...tomorrow, that beast of an engine is going in, come flood or famine.

Well said, Brad. I envy you being there when it went down.

Kudos to you and Mike (Lash for the noobs) for the effort you've physically put in so far.

1100 views in 9 hours. Quite the topic. Quite the character. Quite the little piece of BC history.
