Cool Halloween in February

It is my pleasure to announce that GaryR and I have taken our president's advice and done our part to stimulate the econmony.

Yes it is true, the Pumpkin has changed hands. I knew that I wanted that car since I saw Gary's first thread about it's possible sale. He and I have been communicating about it since November. Finally got a chance to meet last week and the deal was done, in spite of the CT DMV's best attempt at making us all crazy (typo on the title). Thanks to my friend Wayne who conveyed the money, etc to Gary the day the title finally came back from the DMV and to Gary for being so patient and making his word good on everything we discussed.

Some of you know Gary so you know what a straight up guy he is. He has been very upfront and totally honest about the car and all else involved. He sent me pictures of every little thing, every scratch, then fixed all of them before I was able to see the car. Even offered to put me up if necessary for my trip East.

On my trip I also got a chance to meet and talk with Dan and Donna and some of the people at Hairy Dog Grrage, who did alot of the work on the car. These discussions were encouraged by Gary as well. Lot's of cool stuff going on at that shop, guys.

An old friend once told me that "tis not the arrow but the indian". It is clear that this indian now has an arrow beyond his abilities, so I am really looking forward to raising my skill level to take advantage of the work that Gary did making this car so competent. The car stays within the brotherhood, and I look forward to keeping you posted on our (my) progress.

Waiting now for the good folks at Intercity to bring her home to OZ. I think this is the worst part of the whole deal.
