Need help bad...

Hello my friends, its been a while, I hope you have all been well, I haven't been able to get in here for some time. I'm not writing this to whine, but it sure sounds like just that even to me. Things have been prettty bad for about a year, but they recently went to commplete sh*t. Mom passed away a few months ago after a hard fight with cancer, I got laid off from my job, and am now trying to find a way to pay the mortgage on the house my parents built, survive, and now my car got smacked. Life is stellar my friends. Anyway, the reason for my post...

I'm pretty embarassed to say this guys and gals, but I really need some help. Sorry I come back out of the blue asking, but I'm just hoping for a little good luck. The two things I'm asking about are parts and job opportunities. I live in south Florida, but I'll relocate back to hell or anywhere else for a decent career opportunity. Or to be love slave to a hotty with a mustang addiction. That would probably be ok too.

So the car. My baby. All fud up. Cry me a river. I need to find for a screaming yellow (also called crome yellow) 99 GT (its the 35th anniversary edition, but that really just means a badge) some body parts. I need to find a hood and front bumper cover for a GT or cobra, the driver side fender panel, the plastic cowl cover that goes around the wipers (I know, good luck on that one), and possibly some other miscellaneous stuff, I was wondering if anyone knows of some good deals, and some recommendations on what to go with, the car is going to be painted the same yellow I love, but I may go fo the cobra look or something else. I am only interested in things that looks modest and understated, no rice please. I really appreciate any help or suggestions.

I don't know how often I will be able to get in here, but I will try to be back regularly and try to help out where I can, but you can also reach me on my email, its the same user name @gmail.com, only internet I have is the phone and library so I don't know. Sorry for the whining my friends and if there's anything I can do to help, let me know, and thanks for everything.

Thanks, I'll check that out in the morning. I have a lot off background in cars and restaurants and contacting mostly, but there's not much I can't do or learn, and uncle sam isn't the worst employer to work for to be sure.

Harley Davidson in York PA is hiring casual workers. I have been there since jan, and working a ton of over time. Caught the job just in time..was headed the same route as you. Sorry to hear about your luck, Get an App in to Harley asap they have a huge open house coming up real soon staring pay is 16.75 an hr. I think you can do it online, it does take awhile for the whole process took me 6 weeks from start to finish. Not saying you will get a job, but if you have a solid work backround, then you have a hell of a shot.

well hard times bring out the best in you....8 years ago I lost my job but started my own business...best thing that ever happened to me.
For car parts I'd search Ebay and Craigslist
For a job, even if someone is not hiring tell them you will pick up shifts, I was a waiter for 15 years...there is always someone wanting to ditch a shift...eventually you'll have full time work....
Good luck, keep moving, this is the the Land of Opportunity, not entitlement
