Roll Me Over
Seems like a lifetime ago now. Bought a business and started another - a 200K+ 97 F150 gets me around now and the space in the garage the mitsu occupied is now full of aluminum extrusions.

A Miller tig, a mig, 5 CNC's, a metal lathe, and no time to use them on fun stuff - thats how life goes I guess.

FWIW If you're looking to get into cnc - gryphoncnc.com is me <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

Hey Phil, I was thinking about your concrete engraving machines the other day when I placed an order for stepper motors and Mach 3 for the small vertical mill that I'm converting to CNC. Good luck with the additional venture!

Sure was... I miss the "BigBlue" days!

I learned most of what I know about cars today from reading this forum back in college. I didn't even know what a "locker" was and when I saw Lloyd's red Gen 1 when I did an internet search on these trucks before I bought my first car (an 87 Montero) I knew I had to have it.

13 years later I am still driving a Montero.. although it mainly carts Luggage, Golf Equipment, and tools and my butt to the airport and back <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

It might surprise you to learn that Big Blue still reads a lot of posts on here. He just doesn't post anymore. I get a PM every now and then.

We need to run a Cat 5 cable* deep in the woods and get FastEddy back online.

* = whatever, you computer people who know about these things

I reckon I qualify as MIA.

Still have both Monteros, though. I don't believe I'll ever get rid of the 87. I've had it damn near as long as my wife and longer than my kids.

Learned everything I know about them either here or "the hard way."

I still troll occasionally... I don't get to wheel as much as I'd like these days. The big D is taking alot out of my liquidity...

Heh that sounded dirty.


Fasteddy's advice is occasionally sound...

I always liked sparkem. He knew a lot about gen 1 back in the day. I hear he is busy with a 3 year old and 9 month old. Still has the black 4 door but it needs a lot of work. It will be fixed up this year to make it last a few more years.

I just want to tell you both good luck, and we're all counting on you.
