The Bus

I was at a party last night. I had a few beers, followed by a few cocktails, followed by a few shots...

I still had the sense to know that I was over the limit. That's when I decided to do what I have never done before: I took a bus home.

Sure enough, there was a police road block on the way home, and since it was a bus they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident. This was both a great relief and a surprise because I had never driven a bus before. I don't even know where I got it from, and now that it is in my driveway, I don't know what to do with it.

You've heard of Uber? Thank me later.

Do tell. There were like a handful with the big brake, big tank models floating around. I think 199 Z06's made it out alive. If you have a matching numbers car, you have some serious history on your hands!
I am not looking for a matching number car so much in that I want a split-window coupe car in a drive-able condition.

IMO, it's the best Corvette every made.

Wow...where did everyone go?

I know...I've been a bad boy and forgotten my first "Corvette" home. But hey, still alive...still working...and still have my 2003 Z06! And I figured I'd post up and say hello to all the old timers (that's you, John...lol) and hello to any of the newbies.

Hi Don! How you doing bro! It's good to hear from you and glad to know you're still with us.

As you can see, not too many of us here except me and some noobs. I feel like the soul caretaker. It's kind of weird. Never thought I would be the last man standing. Must be the Viagra!

How's your boy doing in the Coast Guard! He should be in some kind of command by now.

John...family is doing well. My oldest son had a distinguished 5 years in the USCG...got his own cutter command at 25 and was one of five out of five hundred 2nd Lieutenants to receive promotion to full Lieutenant a year early! He was being "fast tracked." Alas, much to his mother's chagrin he decided not to make it a career so he completed his commitment, went to Columbia University for his MBA in finance, and now is a VP at an investment bank in NYC doing M&A...talk about a pivot...lol.

I hear you about caretaker status. I think in general car forums are not what they use to be in terms of membership participation...not sure why other than maybe life has just gotten a bit more complicated over the last several years so priorities for time have changed...though I do still find myself "web-surfing" quite a bit...lol.

BTW...here is a picture from last year in New Orleans...my son and several of his former classmates participated in the wedding of my son's best friend from the Academy (his friend is making the Coast Guard as a career)...he still fit in to his dress whites. Notice all the "armor" on his chest...his other classmates were complaining that even though he had been out of service for 5 years he still had more decorations than they did...lol. That is my wife and my son's girlfriend in the picture.
