  1. Martin................... don't you have a CAR to polish and detail????????????
  2. Beautiful blue Scott...... love the details on the intake plenum too....... can you not disable the horn chirp? I think that is annoying as well......silly question..... did you read the instructions? ( owner's manual), the owner's manual in my new ride is 463 pages, although a lot of it I can skip... child seat stuff, seat belt stuff, trailer towing stuff ( pulled semi trailers for years ) but still..... I 'did' read the book....... no emoticon with a halo.....
  3. My new ride is 'keyless', and I was sitting in it yesterday at the dealership, sill not sure this old dog can get used to that....... I'm scared I will leave the fob in the house , go start her up, drive away , and then I would be diddled............................ out of range as they say....... might have to get a string, around my neck, like a 'neck noodle' that the yuppy guys wear for their glasses, or 'idiot mittens'.............. so would that be 'idiot key fob'?...............................OR 'an idiot with a key fob'........................... maybe you guys better not answer that ........I'm sure I will love it, but it is sure something new for this old hound.....

    Birthday boy

    Happy Birthday Phil, hope you get a pint or two.... and 'cake'....
  5. That engine looks AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!What a beautiful ride, buddy.... and car candy too.......
  6. Hey Griz............. that is so cool !!!!!
  7. I like this guy, and his reviews...... SO...............FINALLY, after all the silly questions and a few weeks of research, I have decided ( for now) that maybe the ceramic coating may not be for me , just yet....... reason is for now, is that I'm not sure I can change my old school ways of detailing and polishing......it is the old dog new tricks thing..... heavy on the old dag part......so with that said, and a few emails back and forth to a good friend of mine who worked for Ferrari, and Jaguar in the UK, and says this polish or wax rather is the ONLY product, factory authorized for use by Ferrari, Jaguar, AND Rolls Royce, I thought.... " what the Hell, IF it is good enough for those guys, it is 'probably' good enough for my NEW Chevy" I really kind of like this guy from the UK with his reviews, he seems to know what he's talking about and he speaks my language......this stuff is available, at, of all places Canadian Tire... not cheap, but this is what I'm going to give a go to.....
  8. Me too..... BUT there maybe something to be said for ONE MORE......... " F- YOU ! " or " Wish you were coming with me"?? or "See you there.... SOON !"........ Knowing how I am, I would probably be just wallowing in my own self pity or something..... 'Oh poor me' comes to mind.... I hope not, and I hope that IF I do find out, that I am to soon depart, I hope I can stand up, like you guys and my friend Doug, and show some dignity....... I hope.....
  9. .................. so.................................. what did the Doc say?? Probably like here in Canada, you have to wait a month for test results...... Harv , IF I were your doc, my prescription would be for you to have what every man needs now and again................. A very thick Porterhouse Steak, a strange piece of tail, and a swift kick in the arse, that will put you back on the straight road................... check that prescription with your doc, and I'm sure he will say yes that will work....... let us know how you are doing buddy....
  10. Thank you guys............. ALL very good comments and information...... yes I agree he is very courageous, and is handling this like 'a man', and a gentleman.....I guess the first thing that got me thinking and took me by surprise is the fact that he took the time to even think of me......and that he thought enough of me to consider calling and talking.... don't get me wrong, it was a great conversation, and he was his usual self, laughing and swearing like normal, a conversation I will not soon forget. It was just quite obviously a phone call that one doesn't get on a regular basis ( and thank the good Lord for that !) and possibly one I will never get again as with most folks. I DO consider myself very lucky to have him think enough of me to take precious time and make the call...... guys, I just want you all to know I didn't make this post for any sympathy , I was just so shocked, surprised, and just a little sad.................. I really wanted to let you guys know just how strong my friend Doug is, and what a surreal ( if that's the correct term) it was, AND that he considered MY thoughts, and feelings by letting me know what's going on BEFORE I read it in the 'paper'....... it just makes a guy think a little, just how much influence one has on another. Seems to me we ( well I , can't speak for you guys) get caught up in all the local, federal, and world B/S, and some times lose sight of the real close stuff...... I'm just a regular guy ( kind of redneckish , sorta..) and don't delve into a lot of philosophical stuff, but today............... there is a ton of stuff that really doesn't matter much...... the phone call , just made me think a little bit , and I wanted to share that with you guys......
  11. Thanks Harv... you are right.... I couldn't believe it actually..... and I felt kind of unworthy, and all my stuff seemed to pale in light of this...................
