Thanks to my dad for teaching me how to run the dealership i wouldnt even have anything. and i acutally bought the 97 back from a kid that needed the money so if anyone needs a 97 trans am convertable white...let me know
    how the hell did you get the insurance comp. to buy you a Lt1 when your 85 was stole? Thats a hell of a jump up on paper.

    I had the whole thing repainted, and it was stolen at the track....you gotta remember my dads a dealer and we got the lt1 cheap. it wasnt a bad 85 it would have easily kept up with the new 99 i have now

    I can't vote in the poll, but I'm 23. I wouldn't have my car if it weren't for someone else blessing me with it. However, I've been a Pontiac man my whole life, with my first car being a '75 LeMans SC w/ an H.O. 455. I've owned three other LeMans' but none near as powerful as my first.

    Long Story

    I'm 53. I had a 62 vette in the 70's. Then I discovered motorcycles. My last ride was an 05 R1 220 hp/350 lbs. I got smoked from behind on the highway April 06. I lost control of my bike and hit a dump truck that was doing 70 mph. I lost my left leg above the knee. When I got out of the hospital I was devastated over not only losing a leg but also the ability to ride. It was too much. I longed for something to ease the pain. Then one day in Feb. 07 I was looking for another vette......then I saw her.......a red convertible WS6!!!!!!! It was even a 4 auto (no clutch foot). I have never enjoyed a car as much in my life. I don't dream of bikes as much anymore. This car has helped me get through a very difficult time. Long live The Bird!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can understand what you guys are saying..... I have ridden bikes my entire adult life, but since moving to Florida I have just sold my motorcycle. I will still ride off road, but at least I control that somewhat.

    Thanks for the kind thoughts. I'm fine and having a blast. I tell everybody I'm older than dirt and tougher than a dump truck. I still like to go fast and get the wind in what's left of my hair!!!!

    I qppreciate your sympathy. It is sad but that's life. I knew the risks. I am happy to still be here for my wife and son. Every day is a gift. I don't feel sorry for myself and don't want anybody else to feel sorry for me. I have an awesome life and a really cool car. OK OK if anybody realluy wants to feel sorry for me let it be about me living in Canada and have to store my car for the winter!!!!!!!!!

    I am truly blessed and very happy to be here. I think my life has improved since I lost my leg. I have a new appreciation for life. Today a friend of mine and I crashed a pre boxing show at local casino. Walked right in, sat in the front row 3 feet from the podium.......got lots of pictures of the guest speaker......Smokin Joe Frazier!!!!!!!!! My buddy even brought a pair of boxing gloves...one each. After the press conference we got personal pics of each of us with Joe and he autographed both of the boxing gloves!!!!!

    He's getting on but still pretty sharp, in great shape, and full of piss and vinegar! He told the heavyweights at the press conference,(jokingly), he ain't afraid of them and if they want a whuppin............ I'm going back to the casino in a few hours to try to get a ticket for the fights. They're sold out. I have another boxing glove for Joe to sign after the fights@ 10:00 pm in the lobby. My buddy got a great shot of me with Joe. That is going to look amazing blown up, framed with a pair of signed Everlasts hanging over it!!!!!http://www.ls1.com/forums/attachment...1&d=1198980006 Here we are. I made it into the fights last night. My buddy and I got ringside for the last three fights. It was pretty cool!!!

    I run a foster home for high risk teen boys. They have no idea but I keep trying. You are absolutely right about the health care here. I haven't paid dime one for roughly $50,000 worth of post hospital care and equipment.I even got them to build me a SCUBA leg so I can fully enjoy my trips to the Mayan Riviera
