This is a great thread! Some great cars, and It is nice to put a face to people and know a little about them.
I am 48 (Yeah, I know "Old Fart" right?)live in Independence, Missouri (Harry Truman country, not far from his Presidential library).
In my younger days I burned the candle at both ends and lit a bonfire in the middle work wise. I was a restaurant owner, had 2 locations spent lots of hours working and took no vacations for nearly 20 years. Now I have sold out and spend my time workingwith kids (Boy Scouts of America) I have always been in Scouting since I was a Cub Scout but now I can spend my summers working at the localcouncil summer camp (I run a dining hall... what a shock.
During the winter my wife and I take 2-3 vacations per year (To make up for all the years we missed) and love to SUBA dive in the Carib.
Wow, thinking about it... no wounder I have had this car for 3 years and am no further along than I am.
Here are some pics, 1st - the "Rustang" arriving and going into the shop at my Dad's place. (Thats the only time I have "Driven" my car, 1.5 mph under the power of the lawn tractor.
) Then me with my "Messtang". 3rd -My Wife and I at the peak of Salt Isle. B.V.I. in '06. 4th - We were at "Sunset House" in the Cayman Islands Dec. '07. and finally my Staff giving me a birthday "Surprise" at the H.Roe Bartle Scout Reservation.
