I'm so sorry to hear about your stroke, that is so scary, and it must be very tough to deal with! I wish you, and your family well! If I may, may God bless you, and your loved one's!

I'm 60yrs young still got my photography done a few weddings since my stroke, I've had a great life going to write a book on my life, one doors closes and another one opens. I'm alive and enjoying life and that's all that matters.

Nice ride & I wouldn't mind owning it BUT I don't think you can email things like that. Glad to hear that you've got a master plan that you're looking forward to because I've outlived my family tree where strokes run on my mother's side & heart attacks ruled my father's side. In all honesty I never expected to be my current age & I'm taking the time to enjoy every minute of it.

It's a good shot to remember it by, & I'm sorry to see why you have to sell it. It sounds like you have a handle on the situation though, so best of luck in the future.

Wish I could buy it.

It would sit nicely between my GTO (Monaro based) and my El Camino.

Sorry to read of your having a stroke and being forced to sell your pride and joy. I was shocked/amazed/ stunned? to see a "new" El Camino. I then looked at your location and that cleared it up . Nice shots of a sweet vehicle.

Nice car, you had a chance to enjoy it :D


Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

This photo is on my wall. If I ever recover I'll buy another car.
