Is there anybody out there?

Everyone staying close to home and following the guidelines for safe distances?
How about checking in? Just nod, if you can hear me.
I know Neil will have his car finished in short order.

Rob, you sitting inside watching for the UPS man everyday? Bringing car parts and stuff.

The travel ban is my biggest issue. Need to go to Modesto, Bakersfield, and Fresno. I may just drive there, if that's allowed.

Neil is still hanging in there. I check this site a few times daily, but don't see much activity. I'm still finishing my Black CS, plus 2 '68 convertibles. I'm adding a PB Booster on one, and floor pans on the other.
My self quarantine works OK- I go from the house to my shop daily.I'm a happy camper.

I'm good! The GT/CS got waxed last week and the interior got it's 303 treatment. I've started preparing the vegetable garden and my tomato seedlings are almost big enough to transplant into pots awaiting the coming warmth around the end of May. Had both Mustangs out for drives in the last week. Mostly staying away from people except when we have to go out to get food.

Anyone heard from Jon lately? I sent him a PM a week ago about a new member being unable to post anything. No word back yet.

Was hoping that someone would get the reference and comment. Kind of like finding an Easter egg.

I am still working but getting the building materials I need can be interesting. I finished the restoration of the 68 Shelby last month and am getting closer on the assembly of the 68 S code GT coupe I have been working on.

I am here. Retired at the end of March after 31 years of working. This stay safer at home has put a kink in our plans.

I have a friend who has 12 Mustangs. His wife is not particularly fond of them. She says when he dies she will say come for the funeral and stay for the sale!

HEY!!!! I'm still alive!! I actually forgot my password and that's the only excuse I can think of right now. Staying very busy at work because I'm essential, Hahaha. Mustang is doing well. I just wish California would stop burning up.

My GT/CS was my first car, still have it 46 years later. Paid $800. Featured in the May 1998 issue of Mustang Illustrated.

I am totally here. Car after car are still going through my shop. Got a 427 Cheby motor in the shop I am finishing. Rebuilt three each 4 speed toploaders this month. Next up is a 1975 Ford F-250 Hiboy. I am going to get out of the truck business. To high up in the air and hard to work on.

Sorry I did not see this post earlier. I think I have my own personal UPS delivery guy these days!!
