You can't put a price on happiness, at least not one you're willing to share...  :roflsmiley:

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it.

You might want to document your trip and get a hold of MCG to see if they would want to run a story on you and your dads car.

 :iagree:  Now that is a great idea!!!!!  This is really a special situation, would make a great story for any muscle car magazine!
