Your therapist needs to see a therapist.
By the way, what do you call a person who gets $250.00 an hour to tell you what you already know. The-rapist, I mean therapist.

At the moment i don't have any but i had a number of 1964s, my favorite year, and a handful of early 1950s Cadillacs.

Hopefully i can get my hands on an early Lincoln Continental i spotted in my neighborhood and convert that to another 64 Cadillac

Or more vises

Mines not nearly that old... I've got a 2002 Eldorado ETC, last year they made the Eldorado... It's been in storage for 6-7 years, take it out from time to time... 50,000 miles on her, I plan to keep it forever... It's 99% perfect.

You've just got to keep rubbing it in eh? Pour some more salt on the wound... Twist the knife in the back a little more... Throw 'er in reverse and drive over me again...

wrenchguy - Still can't believe that was listed so cheap on eBay with a BIN... If it was anywhere remotely close to Texas I would of grabbed it first. Glad it went to a fellow GJ member though.

You guys are slipping... this deal never should have made it all the way to me...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/261298418329...84.m1439.l2649

I don't want to hear anymore, "I can't find this or I can't find that"... LOL!!!

Diligence is the word of the day, LOL!

A vintage vise salesman isn't going to show up at any of our doors! LOL

Have a great HUMP DAY, happy hunting!
