So Where Have I Been?

By bencar

Some of you, the few who are active on this Website, may have noticed I haven't posted much on this site this Summer. The reason is, lack of time, and that I have been mainly using my Facebook Albums and Hotrod to display my Car Show and Cruise Night photos and Videos.

On a even less enjoyable note, the Transmission in my 1976 Trans Am let loose on Labor Day, I have no money to fix it with, and unless some miracle occurs, like some company comes out of left field, and says-"Hey we want to sponsor your car"-then I don't know when it will be drivable again.

"Hang in there, my friend"-Yup, that's exactly what they said to the guy on the gallows smile image .

"there's really no place for them to go but UP!", The one guy in the Lifeboat, commenting to the other one about the passengers on the Stern of the Titanic.

Hang in there, my friend. No matter how bad it seems, there is always someone worse off than we are. Things are tough all around nowadays, so there's really no place for them to go but UP!

One can love a girl, but one can only like a vehicle a lot.

My obsession with any of my vehicles, is born of the untold hours put into maintaining and working on them, plus the blood spilled, sweat expended, and skinned knuckles incurred while working on my vehicles. I hate seeing something that has taken up so much of my time, just sitting there and rotting.

In so far as my feet are concerned, never been off them so-to-speak, it's the oil folks, and all it has caused, and continues to cause to skyrocket in price. Despite minuscule dips in price, Oil is, and remains, outrageously priced, and has increased in cost, at a rate far exceeding any increases in pay I have, or may get. Thus the reason why I CANNOT afford a lot of things, nor save one damn dime. mad image mad image mad image

Yup, life happens, and there are just waayyyyyy too many of these Websites anymore. Um, guess you missed the 2nd half of my Blog as to at least some of what has happened in regards to myself and the cars. frown image

I've gotta be honest with you, I'm rarely on here anymore. I really just do not have the time any more to check out all the car show pics and other stuff like I used to, and I have posted a car show album in well over a year (almost two). I've got over 2,000 messages in my box and that's a bit much to handle lol.

Hope all is well with you.
