  1. * 1st Cruise Day & 1st Cruise Night are in the books, complete with pics on the website (updated with more events) here: https://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/ocsh-cruise-nights/ Even better! The forecast for this Sunday's Cruise Day & next Wednesday's Cruise Night is (so far) much better than last week's weather. Anyone joining me for some summertime fun?

  2. Zomigosh! What an awesome topic. I can't be the only one who has thoroughly enjoyed reading all the memories sparked so far. My goodness. Let's see ... I was born in 1973. As I grew up, I came to be known as the kid who knew people by their cars, not their names. Of our neighbors cars, the one I remember the most is the 1976 Buick Regal sedan the lady next door owned for a while. Sometimes, she would see me walking to school carrying my cello and she'd have me hop in and she'd drive me. Before the Regal, I think she had a green early 1970s Impala. She replaced the 1976 Buick with a 1987 Celebrity, which she then replaced with a 1995 Lumina. I wish she'd kept that Buick, tho.

  3. Believe that's my favorite item of the weekend finds. Wow. It is amazing what you can find ... sometimes when you are looking ... & sometimes when you least expect it.

  4. * Been another long while since I have visited. Hope everyone is well. Posting now because I am excited to share some news! OC,SH CRUISE DAYS & NIGHTS Start July 11 & July 14 respectively @ Mozzafiato along historic US 20 in Elgin IL. Official announcement, with a personal note about US 20: https://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2021/07/06/announcing-cruise-days-nights/ Website page with full details (dates, times, etc), plus a list of events including at least 1 in every U.S. state: https://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/ocsh-cruise-nights/ Will you join us? IN OTHER NEWS: Still researching options for a new radio show home, but details of my past shows, including some you can still hear online, are here: https://www.cdshowcase.com/radio-show-history/ Also, 02/20/2021, I posted a vent-rant, which includes some rather personal news, on Facebook. The status is probably similar to the thought-provoking threads I used to post on the boards, if anyone remembers those. Anyway, I decided to make the status public, so check it out if you are interested in a discussion.

  5. As y'all can see, I'm horrible at replying within a "decent" timeframe. I had every intention of visiting again last Sunday, but a meeting with a client took longer than I'd anticipated ... and the entire day's schedule got even more out of whack with a close friend needing some help-support as well. That noted ... good to see many are still alive and doing well. plymouthcranbrook ... Thank you! It's good to "see" you. wayne ... ha, nice. Hope you are well. I'll try to be less of a stranger around here ... I really do miss it. John ... thank you! Good to "see" you, as well. Skylark ... thank you ... good to see you are still around, too.

  6. * I used to be a daily-regular poster, but I haven't posted in ~1.5 years! How are you in this crazy year of 2020? Reviewing threads I've posted over the years, life changes & stays the same, with different & similar things important from time to time. Connections highlight life, with this world becoming smaller than we think sometimes. To those who remember me, I'm still alive; my daily visits here with many of you are some of my treasured memories. Lots has been happening (& not happening) for me, but I'm gearing up to re-start the daily schedule on my updated hobby website: https://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/ ...which has more OC,SH NETWORK members: https://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/ocsh-network/ I have also created a separate-new website for another hobby, my radio shows, with more details than before: https://www.cdshowcase.com/ Cort, pig & cow valves with pacemaker 2003 MGM LS + 1981 cmc SC; need 1975 Chrysler Cordoba "It's always the same old story, you never know what you've got til its gone" | Mike & the Mechanics | 'All I Need Is A Miracle'
  7. * June 2019 already? As I suspected in April, life did get in the way of being active more often here. When I had my family of cars & road tripped yearly (2002-2011), I visited over 35 groups & message boards regularly; I cut back a few years ago & now visit irregularly because life has sure changed over the years. I am (thus far) still alive, tho. I have been out of work since last August & job hunting is difficult; I even started my own business. But, a new bright spot is returning to the airwaves! Official announcement of my re-booted radio show: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/2019/05/15/cd-showcase/ [includes genre details & links to check out] 2019 CD SHOWCASE website page: http://www.oldcarsstronghearts.com/radio-shows/2019-cd-showcase/ [features playlists & links (related Facebook group & FB event; radio station website & FB page; how to listen when show airs & online-via podcast)] If you enjoy the show, let me know & give some feedback direct to the radio station; thank you.

  8. Thank you, cahartley. I sure appreciate your kind words. In some ways, the relief is greater than the grief. Which, I suppose, is good ... & yet. Feels weird, I guess. Heck, even tough to believe he has been dead 2 months today, but time sure is flying. Life is so short & fast, & I feel like I am running out of time.

  9. * Remember me? When I last visited (mid-December 2018), I had intended to be more active; unfortunately, life got in the way.

  10. * I used to frequent this & many other boards daily. But, this time, it has been over 3 months since I last visited. A lot has & has not happened, & I am still job hunting.

  11. Thank you! Maybe now you & I can actually meet sometime before winter really sets in? I'm going to try to visit more often now, but with the job hunt, life is still a bit crazy, so we shall see.... SPEAKING OF my job search, I am wanting-willing to relocate to the southern US (preferably along Route 66 or in the Jackson-Nashville TN area). I am also looking into options for creating my OWN business. Any employment leads, ideas or suggestions!?

  12. LOL! So true ... luckily we DO know better. Kinda funny ... I stopped at AutoZone a week or so ago to have the codes read on my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis LS. The associate & I were talking about reading the codes & he said: "These older cars sometimes don't store codes like the newer cars do." I literally laughed out loud ... most of the cars I've owned have been MUCH older than this ... in fact, the 2003 MGM is the NEWEST car I've ever owned! When I told him that, he said, "Well, older cars are in many ways far better than newer." Kicker? He is 20 years younger than me lol!

  13. Hey keiser, Is that at the Winco Foods in Medford, near BK & McD's, etc? If so, that's near the hotel where I was for over 4 months! & ... while I was in Medford, I saw that same Mustang a few times. Sorry we didn't get a chance to meet while I was out there ... mentioned you in 1 of my posts on my website, if you didn't see it.

  14. Funny how we're told "bait & switch" is ILLEGAL, yet ... examples of it keep coming up, apparently LEGAL. Know how employers aren't supposed to ask about health issues? They found a way around that, too ... ask about or establish "must lift at least this many pounds". UGH.
