Greetings all. Just in case, by some slim chance that somebody has missed me or noticed an absence from me, Im in the process of moving to America . And for the curious type, its to the Charlotte area. So until I can get everything up and going again, Id like to leave everyone with the 10 Commandments for the Car Collector for its something that Ive never seen on this site, and I know that there is alot of it going on(SteveoCamaro ).So everyone take care and remember, no street racing, and 'Ill Be Back'

1) Thou shalt not read thy Hemmings on company time, lest thy employer make it impossible to continue thy car payments.
2) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors car, garage, jack stands, nor his battery charger.
3) Thou shalt not store thy car out-of-doors except for the wife's Yugo.
4) Thou shalt not deceive thy wife into thinking that thee is takeing her for a romantic Sunday drive when indeed thou art going to look at another car.
5) Thou shalt not love thy cars more than thy wife and children.
6) Thou shalt not despise thy neighbors Edsel, nor his Camaro, nor even his '72 Super Cheyenne short bed.
7) Thou shalt not tell thy spouse the entire cost of thy latest restoration, at least not all at the same time.
8) Thou shalt not promise thy wife a new addition to the house and then use it to store cars and parts.
9) Thou shalt not allow thy sons and daughters to get married during car show season.
10) Thou shalt not buy thy wife a floor jack for Christmas.

I think I've already broken all those commandments. Those are a lot harder to obey than the real ones.

BTW you can now look forward to the fall Auto Fair in Sept. and the Goodguys show that follows in Oct. These are held at the Lowes Motor Speedway. You will be impressed.

Nothing like going from one extreme to another -

If you don't want to drag that '67 all the back east - just drop it by my house on your way.... I'll send you pictures of it occasionally...

Welcome back to the Real World!

Ragtopman,

Congratulations on your move south ! Just be prepared for hot, muggy Carolina summers. While I'm not in the Charlotte area, I sometimes regard it as a second home. We spend a great deal of time up there for car stuff, concerts, etc. Anyway, I'm only about 1 1/2 hours away, so maybe we can get together some time.

Same here ragtopman!! I live in Greenville, SC, right down I-85 about 2 hours from Charlotte. I frequently make trips up to Charlotte to go to NPD there to get parts. That's one good thing about living in Charlotte.....you'll only have to drive across town to get parts!!!

Have a safe move and welcome back to the lower 48. If you haven't located work yet, I don't think you'll have any problems. There's always work for a good bodyman and people still wreck their cars everyday.
Good luck in Charlotte.

Well originally it was my idea to move south before him, but I think he's going to beat me to it by a month. Lately I've just switched jobs and been preparing to sell my house. If all goes well and as planned, I'll be out of Alaska around August and heading for warm & sunny Idaho.

So like Jim, once I get the camaro settled into her new home, I'll be back on line.
