Thanks Steve I guess now on my 60th birthday I'm officially Old! Considering the abuse I put my body through in my younger days I'm just happy I made it in one piece! Actually I'm doing much better than in my 50's since I have my back & neck issues under control so all in all I guess I'm feeling pretty good.  :cheers:

If I had any real Artistic touch I'd pull out the airbrush & get into custom work but I tried & I just don't have it.

If I had any artistic ability, I would get a job in a tat shop doing portraits on boobies, or elsewhere!

I was thinking about your neck and back when I was writing happy Birthday.  I'm glad that has been improved.  Now you can get back to rebuilding your engine once a year :D

Been a long time since I've been to a track but before that ever happens I have a list of odds & ends that's adding up each year like finding my source of false knock & the rattle my AC makes at idle to changing valve cover gaskets. If I pull that engine I'm worried it might be a good few years before it ever goes back in so probably better to leave well enough alone.  :hmm
