My poor baby

Hi everybody, sorry I've not been on, I have had real trouble getting on here, and I've been really really I'll for the last 6 weeks but I'm getting over that now! I do wright with bad news about my baby Hemi Truck, in the early hours of Sunday morning somebody took a dislike to my Truck and through paint stripper over it then set fire to it!! I'm devastated about this, the damage is not as bad as it sounds mostly paint work and melted plastic nothing that can't be put right.
The police are treating it as arson but I know that nothing will come of it.
But as we say over here chin up nobody was hurt and it's nothing that can't be fixed!
Hope you are all well? I have missed not seeing what has been happening so I will be on a catch up with everything that's been going on.

Hate to hear that You have not been feeling well and that some jerk screwed with your truck Gregg but, there is supposed to be a bright side to every dark cloud. Hope all is well healthwise and remember, the truck is just a pile of metal, rubber, glass, etc....................

OH NO, DID I SAY THAT? It's not just a pile of anything. IT"S HEMI. ha ha
I was always taught to respect my elders but, it keeps getting harder to find any.

Gregg, that sucks about the truck. That would be enough to make me sick.

Good to hear that you are feeling better from the illness.

Take care of yourself then get to the truck. Chin up old chap.

We're glade your felling better Gregg. That's a real bummer about your truck. Unfortunately, we live in a world with people like that. Does the insurance cover the vandalism? We hope so.

PS. That sure would give you a reason to mod the truck.
