OOOOhhhh! So you're gonna schmooze your way into one of those cushy GS (couch potato) positions and double dip on your retirement AND a GS paycheck.

Congrats! You've earned that cushy job.

Tell the wife and kids that Trunk Monkey said hello! I doubt they remember me but I remember them!

Yeah, we are about dead here. My 19 year old paint won't look good at the barn, but maybe someday.

We miss you Native!

I think I noticed it at the Downriver Cruise but I haven't heard anything else about him.

We are dead, I don't really know how to fix it. I believe that there are only a few of us left.

Jake is doing well, he picked up a Focus ST and is rather busy with his newest purchase. A house; still has the the Mark too...

I talk to him on facebook.

As for staying here permanently, overall, no, eventually hoping to slide into a nice GS position. Right now I am a GS12E.

I will be back... LOL

Good to hear from you!!!

No one wants to get together anymore, or can find the time to do so. As you may recall my Limited Edition died in October 2010 and I picked up my 97 Mark VIII LSC in mid-August 2009 from Jeremi (Mad1stGen). Best car I've ever owned!


James, if you have issues with your paint it can be corrected.

Yeah, I need a total repaint and it can be corrected with the right amount of dead presidents.

I would love to get together next year.
