Just getting back into things......and then

By RealJoker

Yes, that's my shop. To make matters worse we got more snow today. Enough to close schools, roads and apparently stop the crews from doing any work on holding back the river or be able to plow (but that's a rant for another time and place).

I've heard (unconfirmed) that in my case this could have been prevented if someone from the city had remembered to close a valve on a storm drain leading to the river. (the river is just over the hill to the left in the pic.)

It probably wouldn't be so bad, but besides water there's sewage and fuel and other fluids from various engines, trannies, buckets/cans and a kero heater in there. In the shop are The Phoenix and all of the parts for her, the black Blazer I was rebuilding for my d/d and Kevin's beautiful '85 Cutlass that was waiting on a rebuilt Pont. 400. All the vehicles I wanted to keep safe. The parted out S-10 pickup and the '77 Colt were left out in the weather, but are higher up the hill and therefore safe.

More than likely I won't be able to get in there until after the 1st of the month to get an idea of the true fate of the cars/trucks.

Life gets inthe way ... then falls apart

By RealJoker

Sorry to all who may be looking for progress on the car. And especially to those who have donated parts. It seems like the one thing that is really important in my life is falling apart. And no matter how hard I concentrate on trying to make things right nothing is changing save the size of the hole in my gut. Even if I could find the time to work on cars right now, the enthusiasm just isn't there.

Again, I'm sorry to everyone.

Please help! Cars stolen recently!

By RealJoker

Over the last couple of says a couple of very special cars have been stolen in unrelated cases.

The first was on May 30th.

"On May 30th my 7700 mile 4 Speed 10th anniversary car was stolen out of a garage in Commerce Township, Michigan.
There is a reward leading to the recovery of the car and the arrest and conviction of the people involved.
Please feel free to contact me through this forum (;topicseen), at, or my cell at 734-645-6449.



This is an example of what the car looks like.

The other just happend last night. It's Blurr's SS that he just did a bunch of work on.

"Please post this anywhere you can. Maybe someone in the Louisiana area on any board will see it and get back that they found my car. I want to kill someone right now if I could catch them. Im so mad and upset I want to puke. Just thinking about what they are doing to my baby sickens me.

I walked out this morning and my damn car is gone. The SS is gone, I fliping cant believe it.

PLEASE PLEEEEEEASE everyone look for my baby.

I had the kill switch set and the fliping tracking systems web site is down and they arent answering the phone. GO flipING FIGURE! :td
