This morning have someone stand in front of you and extend all of their fingers. Then count all of those fingers and thumbs. OK, how many did you count......... that's right, you counted 10 and if you apply that 10 and add a wake-up that is exactly the number of days till many of us start arriving at the FGMCC Eastern Meet in Carlisle.

I will say today I started my Monte and pulled it out of the garage for the first time this year. I pumped the gas pedal three times and it fired right up...never started that easy from sitting so long before. I also cleaned my entire trailer out today...it was full from one end to the other with appliances, car parts, along with miscellaneous stuff from my other house I sold in November. I gotta admit what a relief that is right now, I have been putting that off for 6 months. Now I can concentrate on getting my car ready.

Someone asked me why I don't count the day of my countdown post in these posts. The reason for that is most members have already headed out to work for the day and won't see this post until this day is almost over. So, with that said......in only 7 Days And A Wake-up we will start arriving in Carlisle. Only a WEEK & A WAKE-UP.

Seven days is about a year too little but I did put color on the Monte Carlo this weekend.  Here's a sneak peek.

Mark, She sure looks Purdy.......  What color is that.  You know if you work day and night for the next week with a crew of 8 or 10 other helpers you could wrap that project up in a week and bring her with you to the Meet so you won't get stuck cleaning mine instead.

Steve,

 

It's the original build sheet color - Nevada Silver.  Been wanting to do this for about 15 years now.  The red was nice but this looks better IMO. 

 

Rob,

 

Not going to rush this - going to do it right no matter how long it takes.  Next step is to paint the fenders, doors, trunk lid and hood and then put it back together for the next round of painting.

Mark, I was really kidding about finishing it in time for the Eastern Meet. After all, if you did that and had your car there you would have no time to be cleaning mine up.

Take one of your shoes and socks off. Now, wash that sweaty, stinky foot. As you are washing between those toes count how many toes you have there. What is that number?? How many toes did you count????? I can tell you, you counted 5 (FIVE) toes.

 

What a coincidence, I love the number 5 because today we have 5 Days And A Wake-Up until many of us arrive in Carlisle to kick off the FGMCC Eastern Meet.

Rob, I sure am glad that you are not counting fingers,

That could be confusing for me.

Too funny Michael, too dang funny. People that know you are aware why that is funny

I was thinking the same thing, you'll know why once you meet me next week.
