    And rarely posts now. What an ironic wit and writing talent he had.

    I disagreed because "the 'freep" is legendarily awful, especially their auto writers. :)

    Thanks for all the nice words.

    Part of my absence is because more and more things (like this website) aren't working well with my ancient phone browser. I did buy an Android-based BlackBerry and so far, I hate it and it gathers dust while I use my old one.

    Another is because I bought more rentals (to store cars) and that pretty much consumed my entire 2019, but the dust is settling on those projects now.

    It's also my turn for re-election, so I have to show face on the city FB page. (Yesterday I told a resident where to buy Kerosene!) That should let off a bit in November.

    I miss you guys as well.

    As for that removal, it should be stated that the old stub was rotted to dust and laden with rodent carcasses! Amazingly, the floors were ok, so I cut a few places on the frame that were barely hanging on so it wouldn't damage the body, and the rest is as you see it. All I've done with the car is make it roll on the new stub, tow it to one of the rental garages, and gathered a few parts.

    Then I crashed my Magnum in a multi-car on I-75, but it's fixable. So there's an update!

    Thank you for that truly entertaining video. The Dodge truck looked nice from what I could see of it.

    So what clued you in that it was Carmine pulling the stub frame? The vintage Dodge truck?
