hey ya'll....
I guess yall know I have been non existant on any message boards. But, after this weeked, I have to come out and share this with ya'll....

I have had such an emotional and happy weekend. I had NO IDEA that for the past month, Steve, Paul and Col. Dan were conspiring to 'OVERHAUL' my weathered Topless for my 40th birthday! Originally, Paul was wanting to get my seats recovered. But, then Steve knew of a friend of ours whose seats that I wanted, and he wanted to sell to me, I just could not afford them. They are off of a '04 Cobra. Black leather and grey suede. THEY ARE LIKE BRAND NEW! Steve and Paul picked them up last week, and Dan bought me new carpet for my car. About 6 others pitched in and gave me about $300 to spend on her. I am going next weekend, to get 2 new back tires.

Steve is out of town, and Paul was sailing last weekend(we are still friends, obviously). Me and Dan worked on my car last Sat. all day and evening at his house. His GT350 and Vette you can see covered in his garage. Then, me, Dan and Paul finished it up about 2pm on Sunday. We had some problems with the top. It did not want to go up. They found the connection to the brake, to say its okay for the top to go up was loose, and we had problems with the Alarm engaging itself, and NONE of my 3 clickers would work! After 3 hours of fighting the alarm, and dreading hearing that Godforsaken 'chirp' of it arming itself, Paul finally got the alarm to disengage, and bypassed it. If the clickers dont work, it shuts down my fuel and I am going nowhere! One of the first things I do, is go and get that damn alarm OUT of my car. I never use it and it drives me insane. And, I dont want to take the chance of this happening again.

I never ever expected this, and I have been beside myself all weekend and a loss for words, if you can BELIEVE THAT!!!! :eek: I feel so blessed by all of my good friends, and I cant tell you how it feels now to drive my car! IT FEELS LIKE A NEW CAR! :bounce: I still have some things I need to fix, I have no A/C and my visors are torn to shreds. But, I am VERY ANXIOUS to take it out next weekend, for our Friday and Sat. night cruises if the hurricane does not dump too much rain. I have not watched the weather today. I am driving Steves truck for the week, till he gets back. I hauled 18 boxes out of the Hangar today with Caitlin, since I am not selling my house. I have been working alot more, and am keeping it. :cool: My top is still leaking, so for this week, if we get dumped on like we are supposed to, I am not going to drive my car. I dont want to mess up my new interior.

It is BEAUTIFUL, and the pics DONT pay it justice. I will get some more pics in the sun. I just wanted to share this with ya'll. Im still trying to wind down from the weekend....

I hope that real soon we can all hook up again. It would be GREAT if ya'll could all make a trip down here, one weekend when Steves in town, and meet us for one of our Cruise nights on Friday or Sat. night.
Heres the link to the pics...
