The guy who bought my old house/shop told me that while he was outside clearing the drive the snow caved the roof of the shop in! He didn't have any heat in it and let all that snow pile up on it - the roof had a low 4/12 pitch. He said his girlfriend grabbed a shovel and immediately started working on the house roof (also 4/12 pitch)! I feel for the guy, but am also glad it's not me going through it. I could never see snow another day in my life and not miss it.

I think it's funny here in Columbus, because they panic when the forecast says two inches. It really tickles me that they think that's a lot of snow


Darn you. (putting it nicely )

I own page 3!!!!

Heh, I promise, I'm not dead. My job depends on my boss landing contracts, and for about a week, we had nothing to do, and no prospective contracts, so I had to ramp up my job search for the 'just in case' factor, and then the following week, he landed 6 contracts at once, and one of those has 8 sub-contracts within it....
On top of all that, I'm trying to get into a new house. Needless to say, I've been extremely busy, but that's a good thing these days.
We did finally find a house, and it's got a gi-freakin-normous 2 car garage, with a colossal game/rec room, 4th bedroom, and bathroom attached (fully finished basement). If all goes as planned, I'll start moving our stuff little by little, and then the official move in date is May 1st. Also, my 1yr anniversary here at my job is on April 1st, so I'm slotted for 2wks vacation, and hopefully a raise!

Hey Paul,
Glad to know things are working out and especially glad to hear about the gi-normouse garage and all the extra space. (flash forward to may 31st/09) How did you manage to get the coupe-ula into that finished basesment through a standard door opening? (flashback to present) I made some progress on my build getting some of the details worked out now jusy waiting for the weather to stabilize to begin fiberglass hope i get it right and don't screw it up. I guess we won't see any updates till after the big move?

I was at D9... And to tell the truth, I was quite disappointed. I introduced myself to several people, but hardly anyone was friendly, and no one really seemed to have much interest, nor much to say beyond "hey". In fact, the only person that really had much to say at all was JimmyS, and he was very friendly to me. On several occasions, I walked up to people sitting in their chairs & under their little gazebo tents, waited 5 minutes for them to quit talking amongst themselves so I could say hello (because I guess when they saw me standing there, saying hello was just too inconvenient for them), and then even when I said hello, I was looked at like "what are you doing here?". Kinda makes me not want to go back. After a few minutes of that crap in the Fiero area, we headed over to the Impalas. What's funny is you couldn't pass anyone over in that crowd without a courteous 'hello', or a start-n-rev demonstration...
Also, I think everyone should have their PFF username somewhere on their clothing, as well as the windshield placard that's on the car. I saw a few cars I recognized, and wanted to talk to the owners, but couldn't find them.

On a happier note, for those of you that couldn't make it, the Lizardo turned out amazingly nice. I was thoroughly impressed with it's lines & general assembly. From the pictures, it looks like it's just going to be another look-alike, but it's not - it is it's own little being, and turned out very nice.

Anyway, on to the swap meet; hopefully there will be more good old southern hospitality there.
-Paul

I know how you feel I got a little of that as well. but I did meet some nice people as well as alot of people I talk to here.
one thing I did find out was that alot of the people there are not active on this forum.
I was hopeing there would be a better turnout but we can make that happen next year
we will just have to invade FLA. next year!

And he's back! How is the move going? I wasn't at Daytona, but I would have said hi. Some folks are more personal when it comes to the internet. I would not take it personally. Hope that all is well with your family. Peace brother.

I was able to contact Lynn who is Paul's fiance and she said that everything is going good. They are still in the middle of moving and will hopefully be back on the forum shortly

Man, all this talk makes me feel super-special! I promise, as soon as I get moved in, the work (and pics) shall continue. We are scheduled to be completely in the new house at the end of this month, and hopefully I'll be getting a raise at my job here soon, so more space + more $$ to play makes Paul a happy person... (now, if I can just find the TIME...)

Ok... We are OFFICIALLY moved into the new house! (WOOHOO!!!) As soon as I can get the garage semi-organized, I'll post some pics of my garage and the contents thereof (which currently includes two Fieros, two cradles, two engines, a hot tub redux, work stations, two sets of washer/dryer, tools and OMG boxes out the wazoo... ).

I'll be picking up on the Couple-ula here very shortly, because I'm so desperately missing the feeling of driving a Fiero...
