    Hi David,

    Pam asked me a couple of days ago whether or not I had heard from you guys. We've been working and staying close to home as much as possible. I saw a video that you posted of a Tesla that you bought for Mary. How do you like it? The same idea has been playing in the back of my head, but we'll see.

    I bought a 1962 Corvette that I had planned to use as a resto-mod project. I drove it in stock form for 2 or 3 months, and decided that I didn't want to cut that car up. It was just too nice for that. So I placed an add on E-Bay, and it sold in 5 hours. The guy that bought is seemed like a good guy, and wanted to keep it strictly stock. He came to Charlotte to pick it up on 8/17.

    That happened about 4 hours prior to me being placed into an ambulance for a bone jarring ride to the hospital. (I think they hit every bump they could find on the way).

    It turned out that I had a Gall Bladder full of Gall Stones, and Pancreatitis that resulted from a Gall Stone that was stuck. I have never hurt so bad in my life.
    My nurse told me that she had previously been a professional clown... I thought she was kidding, but she wasn't. She was a great nurse though.

    A week of IV's, Pain Meds, and Intense Antibiotics, got me to the point that I could have surgery... Couldn't eat or drink anything at all for 4 days; but I don't think I could have anyway.

    I had surgery to remove the Gall Bladder, and allow the Pancreas to finish healing. I am just now starting to feel that I'm back to some version of normal... Trying to get my strength back. It really took a lot out of me.

    With all that, I haven't even thought of finding another Corvette to use as a project car.

    And for now, I'm ok with that.

    I hope you guys are doing well. If Pam and I get out to the West Coast in the near future, I'll let you know. It would be great to get together.

    Take care!

    Hi Beeman,
    Sold the C1, and so far I haven't looked for a replacement for the project. I still want to, but I'm in no hurry at this point.
    I'll be sure to post something here when it starts back up.

    Hello Shane, as you can tell from the previous posts, the C1 Resto-Mod project has been put on hold. I'll get back to it, but I'm in no rush.
    Turns out that these 62 corvettes are pricey, and just keep going up in price. Project cars are few, and when you find them, the owners want as
    much for them as though they were in pristine condition. So, since I have time, I'll wait them out.

    It's great to hear from all of you! Take care, and I hope to talk to you again soon.

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    Wish you speeding recover, it suchs beeing old, everything down from my kidneys is mass up, four years ago did quad bypass and now going for biopsy tomorrow.
    will have to do surgery soon, biopsy is just to define how bad and what type, keeping fingers crossed.

    car is almost ready. just it seems like I am not now ready.
