Ask your buyer if he loves Kyle Orton. If not, you can't trust him.

My $20 will only be on the table for another 4 hours.

Yeah .......I gave one of my Brothers the Ford Elite , the other got the Lincoln mark 4 i forget the year ,But it is a nice car , My sister and her dingbat husband get the 49 ford ........actually all I want is one of my Dads guitars , and some of his personal items

LOL as odd as this sounds , my Dad hated being barefooted , so we made sure he was buried in his favorite boots , I was doing ok the other night , then my triplets saw the Military plaque my brother had made up of my Dad and started talking to grandpa ......... My oldest child folded up her American flag and placed it in the China hutch next to the Plaque .......

so while the dude is talking about being sad about his dad, stuff his dad owned, etc etc, the best you can come up with is some lame **** about giving him 20 bucks for a car?

Talk about a way to get off to a good start. I'm not sure who you are but I already don't like you.

Rep...was thinking the same thing, what the hell is this poster thinking. Spider, I think you need to tell him about the throat...oh I won't spoil it for him.

Would love to see the pics of the malibu when done, what's going under the hood?

I liked them a lot when I was 8-10 yrs old. The Trans-Am I think I liked more though because of Smokey and the Bandit. I mean who didn't want one of those in black with the t-tops and cute brunette in the passenger seat?

Not to mention just how cool it is to a wear a cowboy hat while driving fast.

I dont see anything wrong with bringing a little levity to a downer thread. If it makes you feel better I will give Optimus Prime 100 bucks for the Firebird.

They'll see him again and you will too, keep the faith. Sounds like they have a special place in their heart for grandpa and the nation he served for, these days thats one awesome lesson and something you should be proud of.

I've noticed I still miss my dad as much as ever, I still get almost as sad as I did 4 yrs ago, but more often then not I find myself laughing about how funny he was, or being amazed at how smart he was.

Everytime I look at my broken down sportfisher I say to myself my dad would so have that thing in the water right now.

A good thing to do when your missing dad is to go out and do something you know he would like to do. My dad loved to fix things so I will just walk around house, find a project, grab a beer or cup of coffee depending and get to work.

It's even a bigger bonus if I have to go to home depot. I will wear my little tape measure like my dad did and head out.

Spider, I would try to keep the car and finish it, however I know that there is a bit of reality that gets in the way (bills and means to do it). I was the only one in the family who wrenched on and showed any interest in older cars, yet my aunt kept my grandfathers 68 Camero from me, a whole 32K he drove on it.
Then I have a friend who built up his dad's truck in Denver for him. Got to drive it about a year before he passed. Now it has just sat for eight years, I got to get him interested in it again, needs some TLC to get it back in shape.

I am away from my kids for another week, wish I was with them today. (with Eddie Rabbit in the background singing drivin my life away)

I am still fortunate to have my dad around, haven't heard from him in months. Kind of sad when part of the year he only lives a mile away.

I can relate being on the road is rough , but we do what we got to do to support our loved ones ...... Happy Fathers day , I hope things work out between you and your Dad .......

Dad's been gone 3 years now... but Father's Day still brings on the blues And I still miss him. Chet Atkins was his favorite guitarist, so this is an appropriate Father's Day tribute....

Fathers day is the day the most collect calls are made in America. Dad's don't care what they get, or what they do on Fathers day, they just want thier kids to be thinking of them. Looks like most of the people here are already doing that, so I am sure wherever your Fathers are, they are Happy. I would tell you to remember the good times Spider, and know he is proud of you, but it looks like you are way ahead of me.
