Wife New TOY 2013 Ford Mustang Convertable (DREMA)

By frank76ta

I know have not been on here much but have to share this. My wife and I are heading to our 18 year anniversery and she is so giving to our family and me will always put us first before her self. Three years ago she let me trade her 2005 Mustang for 2010 Malibu to help with me getting better transportaion for our business. Well things are doing well and now it was tiime to pay my wife forward.

Last week I traded the Malibu and could not resit with my surprise with this new 2013 Mustang! She thought when we went to the auto show last week that we were just checking things out. Well guess again honey. I wish I can afford the Shelby but I know she will love this one just as much!

Will get more pictures up later but had share with everyone! Hope you all have a great weekend out there!!

Oh and yes I still have my Trans Am Keeping it!! Just need to get new clutch in it soon! Wife and I can play chase!!

IS THERE ANYONE HONEST ANYMORE!!

By frank76ta

Sorry had to bring this up. It is funny that things seem be so diffrent now when it comes to how people act! I have had my car up for sale the last couple of weeks and have had some people interested in the car but also have some scammers that really try my patience. One gentelman even claimed he is was in the Marines and said he was looking for a car for his son. He did not have a checkikng account. That was a red flag right there!

My Son is in the Marines and has no issue with his funds but what gets me the most is to use our Miitary to scam people.

FYI I know lot of folks here have giving me some great advice. Here is mine.. Never deal with anyone who will not see the car themselves. Two no need your Paypal email address. If you ever have that is is a SCAM. No moneygram or Western Union or asking for your account information. If Cashier check place hold on any title transfer until it is cleared. If someone is really interested in your car they will have no problem with this.

Anyway that is my vent for the week thanks for everyone hearing me out!!

Hey Eveeryone had to say Hi and hope all is well with my freinds here! As most of you know I have been fighting myself in maiking the choice on sellin my 1976 Trans AM well I am making a leap to do it. Its not that I have to but I want to use the money to upgrade to a new Home for my wife and I we have been looking at doing for a couple of years now. I am starting high in price and I know some of the folks here picked on my car not being a stock perfect car. But after all the reading and research I have done this is not a average car by no means!! I have the link here tell me what you think. Please do not yell to loud at me.

Remembering my Dad

By frank76ta

Looking at this web sight today seeing all the great cars out their could not help but think about my Dad Robert Frank Gladman it has been 17 years today since he passed from colon cancer, he was 57 to young. I remember him helping me get my first car a 1976 Camaro he surprised me big time back in 1983 that was to car to have back in High School. We both worked on the car as well in surprise him when he thought I trade it in for a Nissan (Dauston) 240z. It was actually a loaner. Three weeks later I got my Camaro back had it repainted with red stripe and even new plates on it. He came home that evening and nearly brought a tear to his eye. The car looked brand new. I never hot rodded the car even had the origanal Chevy hubcaps and white wall tires which was how the car came.

This is one my best memories I have with my Dad miss you always and know your are still watching out for me up in Heaven.

Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

Well my little work horse that I have still running strong but just had to replace the power steering pump this weekend had to have this done due to how cramp the unit is it needed special tools to get it out. There is still a little rattle still trying to figure it out. This use to be Moms car she passed in 2006 so I treat her like a cadilac. Have put a new stereo system in so I can have my I pod connected to it Pioneer system and replaced all speakers with it set of new Z tires for it, New Windshield, and with the hot wheather in the summer here in Houston got the best Tint for the windows. I am amazed on how fun it is to drive but still love the power of the TA, The mustang is fun to but only when the wife lets me drive it LOL!! Hope eveyone is well and stay safe from all the crazy cold rain and most folks snowy winter season, Hope it warms up soon Elenor Trans Am wants to roar!!

Hey Folks have the new pictures of this year Houston Auto show including some pictures of the New Camaro coming to a dealer soon.

ENJOY

Happy Holidays to all

By frank76ta

Been a while since I blog everyone here but when you work in retail it keeps you busy love the commisions and paychecks this time of year!! I am glad it keeps me busy it has been 14 years since my dad had passed away from colon cancer and lost my mother two years ago, I always remember the good times but think of how tough my dad Robert had in last months which was in November he got so sick he insited going to a nursing home during this time and he was only 57 and past less than two months in Januray, You get to really appriciate what you have had and I thank God for my wife, kids and my health. One thing that make me smile a lot is looking in my Garage and seeing that Trans Am of mine and wish I had my Dad with to take it for a spin him self. He actually had a 1969 Dodge staion wagon; I thought it was such a lame car but boy he put me in my place when I was little brat then, the engine wore out and he found a 454 police interceptor in it and scared the crap out me when he put that in, THOSE WERE THE DAYS. I need to get some pictures up on that car it was a sleeper but love the green clolor solid green no woody.

Well to all have family and loves ones out there hug them and love them even the one that can drive you crazy once in a while!!

Hurricane Ike

By frank76ta

Wow what a weekend here down in Houston!! I can only thank God that we came out in lot better shape than alot of my neighbors down here lot folks lost roofs all though well need a new one my self lost a 14 year old oak tree in front my house and got water inside the Ford Focus (workholic) but able to dry it out. The folks in Galvaston is like New Orleans many people have lost there home Tiki Island and West side of Galvaston that was not protected of the sea wall total devestaion. We just got our power back late last night but still over 2.8 Milliion without power here. Gas stations our closed everywhere and stores only partial open with what they had before the storm. I feel very lucky as said of what I have and all our niegbors here worked so well to get trees cut down and debris removed from our streets. Just to let everyone know as well FEMA has failed again they claim they had supplies ready for help and they still claim things and help on the way 48 hours after the storm if anyone out here wiho has family down here and have had not contact let me know. I do know the Cities of Conroe, Clear Lake, Woodlands, Downtowon Houston, City of Belaire have no power or other utilites, Cell phones with ATT and Veriozon have spratic service so if you are tying to contact anyone use text message if you cannnot get through by voice. Some areas will take as long as four weeks to get power restored in a lot of these areas. Anyway please keep evyone in there prayers thank God for our country and say a prayer for the folks in Galvaston, If you want to look at some video footage two stations have had excellent coverage www.khou.com and www.click2houston.com
