I am really blown back by this and did not see this comming at all. matter of fact i dont even know what to say. but again this is beyond words here. I couldnt be happier and suprised all at the same time.... especially after a week I have had and of course I'll fill you all in later on that but I need to mow the lawn get the wifes truck off the trailer and unpack the camper.

Rick, I can't think of anyone who deserves it more.. You've helped me with parts for my firebird, and I wouldn't have two front seats in my car if it weren't for you.. You're a great guy and you make this a really cool place to be.. Congratulations buddy and enjoy your spotlight.. You deserve it buddy.

thanks kevin, I try to do for others so one day maybe it will come back around.

I have a much longer list of people to thank.

Hitman of course. Hammer you have helped me with too many things and I greatly appreciate that. 4speed (douggie fresh) you have helped me with so many parts i have needed. john witski, Rare bird ahh there are just too many of you to name. so im not going to list any more...

I thank ALL OF YOU for your support and helping hands. I have had this car for nearing 2 years now and there has been alot of hurdles with it that i couldnt have figured out without your help.

hitman mentioned I had alot of cars over time.

well there was a time when I owned my Y88 and a 78 redbird. I had to sell both almost consecutively. I then when I got back on my feet bought yet another Y88 and stupidly sold that one. then I bought a low mile 79 4 speed w72 ta and thought it just wasnt me. so I had to have another 77/78 so I ended up buying this here junky 77 y82 from a guy I had talked to some time before I actually bought it. that same weekend I bought another 77 then that spring I bought a 71 and a 79 along with another 71. that was just too many cars so I sold all but the 71 and the y82. I figured it was too hard to buy one part for every car and I'd get nowhere. well then the y88 fell back in my lap so I let the 71 go. To have one close to being done (if ever) and one I had never finished back and both se's is really cool. And I love having a place to post progress and brag and get way to go rather than uuuuh huh yup and oh. (wives) lol enough ramble
Thank you guys/gals to sum it up.

well me either and thanks at the same time. im impatient and want to get the y88 done but more detailed by far than this one.  but it's looking like the y88 may become a slow moving resto.
