I am concerned for Eric and the other East Coasters caught in that storm. The vids on TV of Staten/Long Island and surrounding areas aren't good. I sent him an email Tuesday but haven't gotten a reply.

Hey Mitch..... More than likely he probably lost power and could be w/o power for quite a while. Let's assume he's fine for now... He probably has a few things on his plate. One of them is not the forum and may have no access to e-mail, land line and cell phone service could be spotty ......

I found a phone number for Eric, if one of you guys would like to try and call him I'll PM you the number.
Shoot it to me, Randy. I'll try tomorrow. His home was nearly swamped by Irene last year and this surge was much higher.
Thanks..

Thanks for checking in. Glad people survived. Wish there was a way to help but it's a long way from MN. I tried calling Eric a number of times but I don't think it ever went thru. All the phones must be overloaded as well. If you talk to the others, Eric, Bobby, etc, tell them hi !!

Uncle Eric call home!:willy:
I heard he was sighted on a tropical island sipping a drink.
How long since he was here?

Ha guys I'd try to message Eric a few days ago but o answer prob course no power. I live on Long Island too but I live more inland about 15miles from him so i didn't get as much damage just a few trees and only lost power for a few days. Eric lives more by the water. I have his munger so I'm going to try and call him tomorrow to see how things are. Hopefully it isn't too bad. People in towns by the bay are still without power almost two weeks later. As soon as I get info ill let let you guys know, hopefully a tree didn't take out his garage

None too soon on the furnace install. We are going into the refrigerator Friday and it should be on your door soon after. Hope they get it going early.

Looks like Sandy washed those brackets into your yard...:lol:

I bought another car lately...

Nice looking '37 Cheeby, Mitch! You can't stop acquiring more and more OLD CARS!! Eric, glad to hear you'll be able to turn on the heat soon....a lot easier than sitting idling in the GTO with the heater cranked up......

Mitch, Quite a collection.....that truck would make an evil looking wrecker!!! Oh.....still no heat, prolly Wednesday :eek:
Dang, what are you doing to stay warm and keep the pipes from freezing ?? We've been down in the single digits for overnight lows the past 3 days...:(

I brought the '52 back from CO last December. Pagosa Springs to be exact. I had to traverse Wolf Creek pass with hard packed snow on it. The commercial vehicles were required to use chains because of the conditions...:eek: The '52 has a flat bed on it that the Camaro and the '38 fit on. With the trailer hitched up, I can drive from the trailer onto the truck and then load another car on the trailer. It needs a little more power before I attempt to drive it like that to a local show, but that's the plan...:cool

Jeff, you're close. It's a '38. The '37-38's are very similar. Grille and hood sides are the only difference and with the mono paint on the grille and no hood sides, it's hard to distinguish. SBC 355 TH350 power train. Heidts front end with r&p and disc brakes.
