MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Just a quick update as to why there was no more post on this build and she never got much further on the car.....Shortly after the holidays Lisa started getting sick and by July 2020 she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and passed away Sept 8th 2021 ......My plans are to complete this once all has settled down,Lisa is my wife....
  2. Thank you all for your concerns and positive thoughts ..... with much regret to say my wife passed Sept. 8th 2021 but not without a fight as she fought till the very end.......
  3. Super slick "Slick" as you captured perfection with the 4X4 with the factory "Wrong Bed"..... beautiful!
  4. Back when Harry was doing this he told me in a pm that it's a almost impossible thing not to do as he also a time or two did repeats .... Don't be so hard on yourself...... Your doing a fine job!!!!
  5. My wife has been struggling with her health since October and was originally diagnosed with pancreatitis and got some better but came June she got worse and thats when the test came back at the end of July as cancer of the pancreas so a appointment was made at Cancer Treatment Center Of America in Zion Illinois.. After spending a week at Cancer Treatment Centers Of America where we were just kicked like a stray dog and told flat out "Just go home and live your life as best and normal as you can with what time you have left" because the was no surgeon there that could do this type of work because of the mass was on a artery and this was given to us from a doctor with a bed side manner of a cardboard box ….. That was a week ago Thursday we got this unacceptable answer and I remember the walk back to the hotel I told Lisa to call Cleveland Clinic because they are not only in our back yard and they cut arteries and aortas all day flippin' long and she did and within 12 hours after the call we had a appointment for today to meet with the doc and surgeon.... First Both my wife Lisa and I understand and realize what we are up against with cancer of the pancreas but for the first time in the past month of the news of the "c" word but we actually got very , VERY encouraging news from Dr. Shapiro and even more encouraging news from surgeon Dr. Simon and they both had bed side manner of true angels..... While the doc said there will be more chemo treatments before surgery can be done because they have to make sure they "c" stays where it's at and if so then he said she would be a candidate for him to go in there and kick this demons ass!!! As we are not out of the woods yet but we have found a pathway that we can see some light at the end and Lisa has to keep fighting and we have a battle ahead of us but there is hope....and I want to say a special thank you to Cleveland Clinic for hope …….
  6. After a trying time here as of late we have been trying to be back to the norm with some of the cruise in scenes opening back up and the wife is feeling up to take her Maverick and me with the '66 and lastly back in November I picked up this roach which Baby Girl proudly takes.....like the song goes "She'll Have Fun Fun Fun Till Daddy Takes The T-Bird Away" ...Here's a Shot of her having fun.. 20200523_213016.mp4
  7. Pioneering NHRA female racer Barbara Hamilton, the first woman licensed by NHRA to drive a supercharged vehicle passed away 04/23/20 . Barb was not only a legend but one of the nicest people in the racing community and will be missed,I had the pleasure to meet/talk Mrs. Hamilton on many different occasions including last year at the IX Piston Power Show and even with her health issues then she still was a sweet first class lady and really appreciated her fans and was a honor to have at the cars show and races......Thank you Mrs. Hamilton for what you done for the sport and to open the door for others like my daughter to get in the racing industry …………. https://www.nhra.com/news/2020/pioneering-nhra-female-racer-barbara-hamilton-passes-away
  8. Simply a fantastic build of a unique rare subject that I have never saw a 1:1 but have only read about,amazing detail and capture of the real thing.
  9. A time when trucks were beautiful and had style and this model shows that perfectly,such detail!!!
  10. When all said n done I love all old tractors and the two old ones mentioned are beautiful tractors, I myself have a '40 Ford 9N I have slowly been restoring...
  11. I love it!!!! Even though IH had their issues I still bleed red and believe the saying "if it ain't red ,leave it in the shed" ... this dio kinda goes against that sayin' LOL...
  12. She has full respect for the old timers and tries to absorb as much as she can from them but I know what you mean and I tell you what,she knows how to just give it back when given to her . We have a local shop and the man who owns/runs it is a carburetor guru and she has made arrangements to shadow with him from time to time because she knows its a dying breed and there is sooooooooooooo many old school rods out there.....she just blows me away with her thinking.....
