    Exactly... It's just what I need to continue dragging in all the Camaro parts cars I've located...

    Guess there could have been worse things to be doing on the internet ;)

    Actually, I found them the old fashioned way. Word of mouth and road trips before my surgery... I did manage to get that one 70 dragged into the shop before I went totally down. I still have a lot of parts to pull of of it but the warmer weather will make that possible. I got the new truck transferred into my name and black tagged after work today. Also hit a salvage and located a pair of straight doors and another left fender. It will be a couple weeks before I can snag those, though. After that, I still had time to start tinkering with it before dark. Lubed the sticking hood latch & hinges and took the broken bug deflector off the nose. Might even go back out to the shop for a while tonight...

    Here is a peek under the hood... Filthy but pretty basic, just the way I like it...

    Great news! I am also a survivor- of stage 4 melanoma. Thankfully what was a 99.8% 5 years mortality rate disease now have effectove treatment options with immunotherapy. I ended up taking the same same drug jimmy carter did 10 years ago (before it was even in clinical trials) called keytruda. Zero treatment side effects and 6 months of clear scans now. As said by others, treatment options are day and noght better than they were just 3 short years ago. Live life to the fullest!

    Had a new CT scan a couple weeks ago. Everything still looks good so far. The minivan puked a head gasket and I'm waiting on some special ordered parts, so I started thrashing on the 1-ton again. Got it running fairly decent, installed the rear glass, seat belts, and the seat last weekend. Yesterday I got it insured and tagged. Hopefully it will get me to work and back tomorrow. We'll see...
