they have nice warm stalls we bring them into. He's actually in the yard there. A gate was open when I let them out of the barn that morning and he decided to explore.

Hi again. I assumed that the guy was basically treated like a king at all times and had decided to go check out the snow for himself.

Greetings, daily I work at a machine shop. I do custom paint work on the side as I've been an artist since Jesus Christ was a sophomore. I have my degree in commercial art and it has funded my toys and then some. I have played sax since I was in grade school but it's been a couple years since I played out. I have an Alto, a Tenor and a Baritone sax. I have a, now 13 year old, daughter(pic of her and I at Niagra falls) who is a Straight A student who is also interested in art and music. I am currently director of a 501C3 local children's charity where we do 3 major fund raisers a year. I also write a tech column for the local biker magazine. Yes, I ride as per the pic. It's an old '85 custom Harley with around 140,000 miles on it. I put all but 15K on it. The old '76 truck is one of my projects as I have...five? besides my 65 fastback. ('32 five window coupe, 63 Falcon convertible, 72 Ranchero GT, 66 Mustang convertible..oh and a '67 Cougar!) I've been collecting parts for about 30 years for these cars. The objective is to have a different Ford engine in each one....all V-8's and most with 4-speeds.

Me too. I have one that I'm drivin' but it's getting so rusty it's not worth redoing. The black one is from Nevada and rust free!

You mean to tell me there is more to life then working on Mustangs??? How is that possible!!

I am a maintenance man at an apartment complex, its small with 112 units, and I'm the only maintenance man, so it keeps me busy, which is good because I'm the type who has to be doing something all the time, can't stand just sitting around.

Like Cobra, if I'm not working on Elizabeth-Marie, I'm working on the shop I built or adding things to the Mustang room in my house. My next project is a black and white tile floor in the shop.

I do have one diversion I have become totally addicted to a computer game "Plants vs Zombies"

I live in SoCal so we don't have the winter car project season. Of course there is also lots of other stuff to do which distracts me from the car projects. I hike a lot, in my local San Gabriel mountains and also take a couple trips to the Sierras every year. Plus I like to just sit around and read, but that doesn't always make me popular at home since it looks like I'm not doing anything.

My wife and I like wine tasting. If the weather is good we take the mustang. Our favorite drive is to Chelan. There is a winery that overlooks lake Chelan. On a warm day nothing beats it!
I live is Seattle and Chelan is just on the east side of the Cascade mountains

DrVett, I bet you might have a lead on a winery around SF??? I enjoy some wine tastings myself but my wife doesnt like to do ANYTHING and my only option is to find a nice date....she seems to be against that too. So I dont sail anymore and dont go to wine tastings anymore . That said I'm helping set up some activities for a conference in SF and know nothing about the winery venues of SF.

After reading some of these post.... I've come to the realization I dont do anything. Both bikes have flats, my body building consist of beer, out of shape, cant seem to get back into reading. The lines in my reels are old, I am tone deaf, I stay home because if I go some where the wife acts like I'm punishing her or its to make her look bad, I dont sail anymore which was one of my favorite sports but the wife doesnt care for the cuties that hang around that sport, as a crew guy I usually got on a good boat, sold the motorcycle 14 years ago to buy my 65 Malibu SS, I love golf but too dumb to learn the game. So what is it that I do????

Love going to the gun range...but I dont get to hunt much, growing up my dad farmed so we didnt build anything, therefore I have no carpentry skills or go hunt except for rabbits. But we did work on mechanical things which comes in handy piddling with old Mustangs. That's what I like to do but dont get to often enough. Today is yard work... and not much Mustang Stuff AGAIN!!
Now some of you may think this is all negative...the reality is that my former job was 80 hours per week, I'm conditioned to that life style but it's taken me 6 months to catch up on house things that didnt get done. I get to watch my sophomore swim at HS events and she's happy sooo I'm successful!!!! Now that swim season is over...I will put the cars on the calendar.

I'm going to join that forum Beri and tell'em you sent me so they know who wrecked the place....hope you have the same screen name. I want to do checkered tiles in my garage sometime soon to clean up the place:


As far as other hobbies I've got a mountain bike (GT hardtail alum.) I haven't ridden in a few years that I took out today, need to do new tires/maintenance and get it ready for spring. Otherwise any project around the house, almost done building a new doghouse out of cedar for dumb (10 yr. old GoldRetr.mix) and dumber (5mo. old GD)

Jon, I have the checkered tiles in my shop and I don't really like it. Really slick when wet, and where I had a gas leak it caused the tiles to wrinkle.

I'm going to paint my floors with a super duper shop floor paint, like the Mastercoat AG111.

Josh, are those the VTC type tiles? I wonder if they make a rough surface style? Will that floor paint have texture or are you going to sprinkle sand in it?
