Happy Birthday!...

...Mike (somethingspecial)!

And what better way to celebrate than to treat yourself & lovely wife to a drive in a "brand new" 1968 GT/CS!

Mike - she rides as beautiful as she looks!

Congratulations again and Happy Birthday :-)

Cool Which one is the classic?

Mike,

Happy birthday! Good to see you driving your special car on your special day. The only question I have is was a burn out done at some point in the drive?

Thank You. RON, YES I DID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One would probably freak out seeing someone do this with a Concours car. I just had to do it, a couple of times. After all, it IS my B-day. (Don't worry, I didn't have the show tires on) Robinette drove it for the first time today as well. On the way home as she relized how much power it has, we both realized it was the first time she had driven a Big Block. I was real pleased to see Tim behind the wheel today. He had not driven it in over 24 years. I think I enjoyed it as much as he did. Well, After a couple of small burn outs, I have some major cleaning to do and put it away for a while. BUMMER, BUT WELL WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mike.

Happy birthday, Mike!!! You look pretty good for 65.

Joe

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

Happy Birthday to a class guy. Also thanks for all your advice. It shows that when one gets to be your age you're memory can still be good. Doug

Happy 29th!

I'm having my friends over at "Pimp My Ride" come by and re-do your MCA Gold car with flames, sidepipes, fender flares, and leopard seats--all for your birthday!

How cool is THAT???

:-P
