It's been at least 4 years since I last posted and I can't remember why I stopped.

I still have my Riv. She's sitting in the garage and she's just as beautiful as ever.
I drive her about 1k miles a year to local shows.

I'm also posting this link to some of the other rides I presently or previously owned since last visiting this forum:

Thank you.
Unfortunately, I no longer own the Reatta and the Mustang.
I just didn't have room for them, so I sold them a few years back.

Hi Dave. Great to hear from you! Some great looking cars you have. Did you sell your Vette?

I'm starting to become quite a Reatta fan. Never owned one, but whenever I see it on the road, I think: 'Wow, Buick really got this one right.' Dare I say... it's better looking than a Riviera, and standing the test of time quite well.

Also, "hello" to Ed. It's been a long time. Still racing Chump Cars?

Hi there, Mr. AA hi
The 'Vette is long gone. I sold it at a car show about 3 years ago. The buyer paid cash and gave me a ride home in it... LOL.
I really liked that car, but my wife hated it.
As for the Reatta, I wish I had never sold that car. It was so beautiful and such a pleasure to drive. My wife has never forgiven me for selling that one, but hey...that's what I do. I never keep anything very long (except for the Riv).
I suppose you took a peek at my Saturn Sky. I've had it for 2 years and I'm still enjoying it. We have a local Kappa Club here in my area and we take a lot of cruises and do car shows. It's a lot of fun although it's getting harder and harder to drag these old bones in and out of that little roadster.
How are you doing?
Is Robo still around?

Still at it, name has changed, we are now racing Champ Cars! Pay attn to the July 4 Daytona IMSA race, we will be somewhere in the background staging with 120 other cars for our 14 hr event on the rolex course the next day, the 5th..

While we do not have network TV coverage, there is a well done amateur broadcast on youtube/facebook Champcar live, we are expected to have a live camera in the car. Look for Team Infiniti

Facebook Infiniti Sharkcar Ed
Youtube multicrazycar (highlights later)
