              It is really hard to believe it's been a year. Does anyone know how Beth and Tony are doing? I haven't seen either check in here for quite awhile.

                Hi! I am here...not on here much, facebook has put some of all my circles together so it's easy to check in there....lazy, I know. I can't believe it's been over a year. I just finally got the gumption to put the McLaren in my name so I could register it again. The trans is getting fixed right now then she will be on the road for the summer! I have found/re-found a very important person in my life who is also a big Ford guy, he has been helping me with the sorting of the shop items and getting things in order. Alex and Rob would get along famously, I wish they could have met. Moneymaker and my race car are in the garage. No racing for them this season, maybe next. That's about it! Thank you all for your friendship to me and your love and adoration for Alex. It meant the world to him, to us, and still to me. The Ford Family's true blue blood runs through all our veins...

                      Good to hear from you Beth. I think you went the FB route not long after I joined here, so we didn't talk much. Do you still have the dogs? I remember you had some beautiful German shepherds.

                          I miss Alex. Last Sunday I drove from Chicago to South Haven, MI right past Michigan City and thought of Alex, Beth, and Tony the rest of the day.

                            Whoa, Scott! Nice to see you're still kicking.

                            That was a nice thing to post.

                            Alex was a dynamo in the best sense of the word. I can't work on my Mustang without thinking of Alex, and that is a good thing.

                              Hi Mike,
                              Yeah I'm still around. Was a long long dark Chicago winter. We are in the process of buying a second home near Indianapolis and my garage space is inundated with a bunch of house crap we need to Garage Sale, Craigslist, trash, or donate. Not much motivation to work on the 66 Mustang or the 36 pickup. REALLY looking forward to designing my new workspace in the insulated/heated attached garage at the new house. We close next Thursday May 25.
