I don't post a lot, but visit multiple times daily to make sure and keep up with YOUR builds. I have a couple of projects, but no time and room to work on them, so I get my jollies watching others win at building theirs for now. Just don't stop posting... it keeps my hopes alive.

I drop by at least once a day. Lurking for a few minutes. It's still my Home page so it's always the first stop.

I'm working part time and then working at home full time with mini homesteading and other hobbies.

I'm still driving the Dragon, who is still normal pain in the ass he has always been~

I took my woodrod build over to the Samba because that seemed to be the only site still actually breathing on it's own. I do miss the old days around here.

I assume. The others are active in facebook, like the Bossman.

Why only Grumpy and I are still highlighted?

I get a question over there, I come look.



If it were still easy to post pics here, I'd keep some updates here, but thanks to photofuckit for screwing that up.........Not much car related anymore though, mostly just maintenance. Jason and Rob are still tinkering with cars though so why they don't post here ,

Default Re: Is anybody out there?

I still pop in once in a while...more so lately...feeling nostalgic, I guess.

I have a choptopbug project in my shop but too cold to work on it. I'm from Florida and I do not like winter. Hell, I may sell this house and move back to Florida...lol.

Jason lives 35 minutes from me but I haven't been over there in a couple years.

I was posting on my Bugdust's Garage group on Facebook and on YouTube but I am working too much right now so not much happening. I build model cars now...lol

I guess I could be one of the old timers? I was here when "here" was on STF, and I'm definitely old.

I still stop by pretty regularly. Not a whole lot going on with my car. Getting a couple things done in prep for putting it up for auction in a couple months. Not much else going on either. Work, home, work, home, etc

I drop by a couple times a year. Bullies are all gone thanks to code enforcement so I drifted from my nightly routine many years ago.

Ran the Blue Max up to town to take our 16 year old Chihuahua mix for a walk out the trail from the downtown park. The nicely paved path is built over the old railroad and runs for several miles. Lots of people on bicycles or foot, many with dogs. The Max is running great and a couple was surprised that it wasnít a modified Ďvan.
