Good Afternoon CGs!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend.

Hot and nasty here again. Supposed to rain later and drop 25*. Might have to break out the winter coats.

Like I mentioned before the tool sales have been going well. I've been trying to do everything local first and I've been meeting different people just about every day to sell. I'll start listing everything else in an online tool group with shipping this week. There is a much broader audience so you can usually sell pretty quickly.

Hope everyone has a great day!

CLOUDY AND STICKY IN THE NATIONS THIS MORNING. GOT TO QUIT PA'ING AND MOW THE REST OF THE OBSTACLE COURSE TODAY, IT MAY RAIN TOMORROW. WILL BE SWEATUS MAXIMUS.

HAD A GOOD FATHER'S DAY WITH #1 DAUGHTER AND FAMILY, STAYED LONGER THAN I PLANNED DUE TO AN EXTENDED POLITICAL GRIPE SESSION W/ SIL AND GS #1 &3. WE'RE ALL PRETTY MUCH LIBERTARIAN, BUT THEIR ANARCHIST TENDENCIES ARE NOT AS PRONOUNCED AS MINE ;-)

SO I HAD TO TAKE A PRE-BEDTIME NAP FROM SIX THIRTY TO NINE.

Morning guys....Got up normal time, well, I did hit the snooze once. Didn't do a lot yesterday. Did get the corvette down and drove over to the 'city' in the afternoon and came home and threw a couple t-bone steaks on the grill. Then last night we watched a documentary on the Korean War. one of Rosies' brothers had seen it and thought it might shed some light on what dad went through over there. It wasn't a picnic.

I'm going to work in the shop after while, a few small jobs to keep me busy.

Just got an email from my sister, both my brothers wives, are planning a trip out to western Kansas to see her on the 2nd. We will run up there too. Will be good to see them. Haven't seen my older brothers' wife since his funeral. We'll spend the day together.

I hope that everyone here has a great Monday.

Amazingly she takes pics on her cell phone. They just come out nice.


Not a big Fathers Day fan. I cut grass in the A.M. and early afternoon, took a 15 minute nap, showered and went to a Fathers Day/ Birthday dinner combination at a Miami Peruvian restaurant. Food was good and spent time with family. "A man that doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man."

Hot and humid here. Icky hot in the 90s with killer sun during the day. Once the sun goes down it's tolerable.

Tool sales have been steady and successful. Been selling a lot and had a few big ticket items I was glad to move. I still have a bunch left and I'm getting ready to list the box soon.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!


Sounds like your setting yourself up for a great retirement opportunity. You can easily burn through 40-60 hours a week buying and selling tools plus add a honey-do list. Keep up the good work.

Happy Father's Day, Gurus!

I played golf with my sons and some friends - it was HOT, HOT, HOT out there. Then we came home and BBQ'd, and just as we were finishing up, it started raining cats and dogs. Timing is everything.

Hope y'all had a great day!

I would find a reputable local electrical shop to rebuild it. They use higher quality parts than the parts store / foreign rebuilds. They will also test it to make sure it functions properly. The guy I use said he can also upgrade it internally for better output.

My bride got home late from there big trip......she got and made me scrambled eggs and bacon with hot coffee..... yum......

I watched a lot of the race and did see the finish although I was wishing for back in the day of the C5-R and C6-R...... when we were competitive....

Girls are back home...... #1 is on business to Dubai and then India before she returns to Seattle..... they saw all the sights but said the French people were mostly rude....and that both Paris and London are dirty..... The took Uber everywhere except for the occasional train..... saved a bundle they say..... they also said the driving in Paris is crazy with small cars zipping around and they are all dented......also motor scooters going anywhere they want anytime they want........ To sum it all up....my wife says we live is such a great country and is glad to be back in it.......

.....I have purchased brake parts again for my GS.....went on eBay and spent about 2 hours making sure the part #'s matched and would work on my car...... a lot of stuff was for base cars and I needed Z06 stuff. I went back with the OE rotors.... hell, they went 62K without a flinch and could still go more so why mess with it. Chevy knows what they are doing.....especially for the kind of driving I do...... I found them for 33 bucks each cheaper then at the local stealership.....

I did go with Hawk Z rated ceramic pads for front and back which I have heard good things about. They were a lot cheaper then the the OE ones at the dealership...... all shipping was free so I was all in at $585 bucks......much better then the original $850 I had spent......but not as exotic of parts either. All have been shipped so they will be here soon..... much happier now....... I did get my money back with the help of my CC folks..... thanks for the heads up on that Matt..........


Ok nap time now.......

STILL SUMMER IN THE NATIONS, MADE A RUN TO WALLYWORLD FOR DOG FOOD AND STOPPED AT THE WHEELHOUSE FOR BREAKFAST. WILL HAVE LUNCH AT #1 DAUGHTER'S THEN HOME FOR A NAPUS MAXIMUS.

Romaine lettuce is being recalled because it's causing E.Coli. I'm not surprised that a salad is trying to kill us. All I'm saying is a donut would never pull this crap.

The biggest story, of course, is Toyota finally winning overall after years of horrible luck. Yes, they had little competition, but it is not their fault that all the other manufacturers in LMP1 "went home."

In GTE Pro, I think it was the same story as the Rolex this year—the winners have absolutely no problems. Even five years ago, you could have a minor issue and still win. In 2018, you'd better not put a wheel wrong or you are not going to be on the podium.

Congratulations to the European Porsche teams—the pink pig livery will be immortalized yet again. I loved how they were all-in on the retro theme—even having fake brick facings in their garages to make them look a little more old school.

I'm proud of the Corvette Racing team. In particular, the #63 worked for that 5th place after dropping as low as 10th. Magnussen drove like a banshee in the late night/early morning hours—perhaps one of the "old men" in Corvette Racing has some years left in him.

I really meant to wake up and watch the end of the race....but that didn't happen. Watching it on DVR. I've read John's account, so I know how it turns out, so it won't be a surprise for me.

Rosie went for a walk while it is still not HOT, then she is going to make waffles with my fathers' Day present from my oldest. Looking forward to that. Later, we will go for a drive in the Corvette, don't really have a plan for it, just go.

I trust all you fathers out there have a great time today.

I have to agree that many remanufactured units aren't too good, but then again so are so many of the new units. I've had both fail over the years so it's a crap shoot, it's just the luck of the draw. Even rebuilding the old unit, it all depends on the quality of parts I can find whether it's worth the effort or not (heavy sigh). So much (whether units or parts) come from overseas and many lack apparent quality control in their product.

I'm just hoping this reman unit will hold up a while, have to see what happens. Wish me luck.

The AER #11 LMP1 looks like their engine has blown. That'll likely take us down to 75% of cars still running.

Tommy, your friend’s photos are beautiful! I miss having a good camera. Last one was an old film camera. Was a good pastime to take a mindless day wasting drive in a top less Vette just taking photos of things.

Got up early this morning and headed to Petit Jean to the car show/car swap thing. Took a bunch of phone photos. Anyone on my FB can see some I uploaded em. Not sure about posting that many here. (40)
Speaking of which....Uman if you want to do it all on you phone - first it all depends on your photo size. Site upload limit is 1000kb. If you have an iPhone 6 for example, your photo could be as much as 3.5mb. To downsize you can either email it to yourself then select size medium when promoted, then save back to your phone.... or - take a screenshot, crop off the extraat too and bottom then save and done:

Evening guys...... didn’t get as hot today as I thought only into the low 90s. Cleaned up the pick up a little bit. Cut a few bricks for the neighbor. Watch Le Mans on TV. Went to church and a going away party for our Priest. Sorry to see him go he is a great guy. Not real sure why he is leaving, but have a feeling he really doesn’t want to go. Must be a little like the military, you go when and where they tell you.

Now the #1 Gibson LMP1 is in the garage. Back out after a couple of minutes, but falls from third to fourth.

Engine failure takes the #34 Ligier LMP2 car out of the race, so the attrition rate is now 10%.

The #40 Oreca spins in the Porsche Curves, hits the wall hard, and ends up in the middle of the track. Slow zones with eleven hours to go.

LM GT Pro: still Porsche #92 (24th overall), Porsche #91, Ford #68 (Corvettes still 7th and 15th in class)

LM GT Am: now Porsche #77 (37th overall), Ferrari #85, Ferrari #54

About 52 cars of the original 60 are still in the running. Five are definitively out.

that's nice not to have to deal with core...

most remans are junk... so if you find the right OEM parts to rebuild it with, you are ahead.

The #25 Ligier LMP2 car seems to have a suspension or steering issue and is limping around the track. They eventually make it back to the pits.

The #6 Ginetta LMP1 car has been retired.

WOW! I DID GET UP EARLY THIS MORNING, A WHOLE MONTH EARLY :-0

HAD A GREAT VISIT WITH BABY DAUGHTER AND TROPHY SIL. WENT TO A CAJUN PLACE FOR LUNCH AND #7 GRANDSON AND I COMPETED TO SEE WHO COULD EAT THE MOST FRIED CRAWDADS AND 'GATOR TAIL. HE WON, HE'S SMALL BUT FAST. HE AND I MADE THE TRIP TO "TRAPPERS" IN THE TOMATO WITH THE TOP DOWN. GOT ANOTHER CORVETTE FAN THERE.

AND IN THE NEWS:
HEADLINE: Human finger found in alligator snapping turtle's body

SUGGESTION:
LOOK FOR A NINE-FINGERED NOODLER :-)

The #8 Toyota is getting a minute-long stop and go for speeding in a slow zone. The #93 Porsche has returned to the track, but is now behind the #64 Corvette.

The Porsche #93 car has joined the #94 car in the garage with an unstated issue. The #94 cars' suspension issue is unrepairable, so they're done—out comes the marker. Nine hours in:

LMP1: still Toyota #7, Toyota #8, Gibson #3

LMP2: now Oreca #26 (5th overall), Alpine #36, Ligier #23

LM GT Pro: now Porsche #92 (24th overall), Porsche #91, BMW #81 (Corvettes 7th and 16th in class)

LM GT Am: now Porsche #77 (39th overall), Ferrari #84, Porsche #88

Realistically, about 55 cars of the original 60 are still in the running. Three are definitively out.
