Some of you guys are missed!

I had saved this list of other missing members (acknowledged some have already been addressed) from another thread in the event anyone has any feedback:
dreis454 chev64 rubadub Brettd85 John Muha Dave 66MYSTERY CHEVELLE Beaux quickSS Mr69 Xtreme70SS396 Bowtie Aaron Harold Sutton davis95 webfoot Junkyard Dawg Elcoman oldtimebaseballfan FRYNTYR 1BLACKHARLEY PaPa Johns 77 FourEightNine sg5492 Kevin R chevelledude71 136679ss d1_bradley Olle richietables shadowgray396 onovakind67 Tod74 undee70ss 67shovel 68KMENO animal69 OutCast

This is from a post in bench racing (Where are these guys?) on Team Chevelle.  It seems some of you guys were identified as "old timers" and the older members of the board wondered where you guys got to.  I answered it as best as I could.  After that, I took a trip down memory lane and went back through some of the old posts in the NW section of Team Chevelle.  Of note was the post announcing the birth of Rambo's son and some others.  I really miss the old days sometimes.  If someone is in contact with Johnny, tell that Canadian SOB to come around here once and awhile and post something!!

Hmmm. John seems busy by the looks of it on social media...life moves on and changes in various ways, of which I can attest to (I don't have much car time these days either).

 Well I guess everybody has changed in one way or another.  Whatever they're doing I wish them well!

Nice, I don't even rank high enough to get My name in BOLD, BASTARD.disbelief I did see your comment about Brett having a lot of DAVE in him, or something like that, wasn't feeling to well that day, so no homosexual nonsense was available for comment. BUTT, Brett will carry that with him for life, no going back.

biggrin

I talked to Johnny a way's back, He never said it but I think there was a divorce, car sold. Life moves on. Haven't been to TC in quite some time. Hoping to get Myself back on track sometime in the near future, what's left of Me least. It's interesting to look back and see what has progressed in all our lives. Not like I'm totally in the loop anymore, but still seem to know what happened to at least the core group of TCNW.

Ben, ShadowGray396 is the guy out in Gresham that the rear seat came from, via Rainier. Just recognized the name. I think dries454 may have passed on, He had Diabetes pretty back the last time I talked with Him. John Muha was the shit as far as wiring goes, He is one of the ones that helped Me with the diagrams to wire a SS bash out of a sweep dash harness.

Rubadub was having medical issue's as well, I do wonder about webfoot.

I'm friends with webfoot/Jeremy on FB- he sold the 70 chevelle that had the engine fire a few years back- but still has his 68 GTO convertible, finally finished restoring it and got it on the road earlier this year.

He picked up a 63 catalina convertible basket case a year or two ago and a bitchin chevy 4x4 (69 i think?) with newer chevy stepside box on the back after he unloaded the chevelle.

He's really into doing BBQ competitions and stuff, and i think even does BBQ catering stuff in the summer. And of course has a family now...

Where is George? Hasn’t logged on in almost a month... unusual for our leading post whore.

And yes, Dave. Your memory will haunt me forever.

I've noticed throughout the years some people just disappear...like the guy with the Firebird (67-69?).  Up and poofed, maybe because he wasn't getting much feedback?  I dunno, I enjoyed watching another Pontiac go together at the time.  

Makes me wonder if Darryl ever got that big block stuff he machined back to the older guy who lived near Jim...he poofed too.

 

George called me a couple weeks ago, he's been busy with family last I heard.

I think some people are forced to sell their projects, don't wanna say it and just fade away.

 There are times when I wanted to park the truck, trailer, car and tools along the road and make someone a great package deal.

Hi Bitches!

Yes, I have been away from TCNW for a bit. First, not much gearhead stuff going on. You know, the usual remodel stuff, travel, vacation events, and old age/back only good for several hours thanks to Uncle Sam. I will be out at FIFE later today for other stuff, will check in on RatVEtte, put her on the btty charger. Winter is tough on batteries.
Craig did install the front Camaro glass long back, I did some travels then......

Roughly 2 months back, life got damn real. Grandkiddo #1 from nearby FIFE (Keegan age 7, female) was diagnosed with LEUKEMIA. Every day I am visiting, lending a hand, working support missions. Keegan has completed Round 2 of chemo and is home for a few days before Round 3 starts. After Round 3 she's to SEATTLE for 100 days or so at Seattle Children's Hospital for marrow/stem cells and all that jazz. Keegan has probably the nastiest kind of Leukemia.

Dan Reis DREIS454 did in fact pass 2 years back
I heard Brian bought a home close to the Bremerton track

George I don't have the words to express how sorry I am about your grandchild.  Brett is right, no child should go through that.

Sorry to hear that George. Cancer sucks, even more so in a little one like that.
