Hey Mark!

Yes, I think I may be done with Bullitt this month, or very close to it. And then what's next you ask? Hmmmm.... I'm concocting a plan to obtain a car I've been after ever since the owner of this car told me he bought it. Well... since we're on the thread of the Beater Bee, the car in question is currently owned by the previous owner to me of the Beater Bee! I cannot reveal details yet as my plan is in full force right now to include:

1. Subliminal e-mailings
2. SUPERliminal e-mailings
3. Random text messages at odd hours
4. Drive-by staredowns
5. Hiding behind bushes then jumping out screaming "BOOGITY BOOGITY BOOGITY!!!"

So I'm hoping this plan of attack will work sometime this year. It'll be worth it since there will be another thread to follow on the footsteps of the Beater Bee for all to roll their eyes at! Unless of course I get committed....

Meanwhile, it may get quiet with me for a little while since we're starting to build the new house/ shop/stables here in a few months. Hmmm...I could update that thread in between car builds? Naahh. But fear not! Once a new build begins they'll be Hi-Def videos, perfectly staged photos, and possible Celebrity guest appearances!

Cheers
Dave

Oooooh, the suspense.
The stress of the delay may add a few gray hairs and shorten my lifespan a little, but I, for one (and I am sure there are many on here who agree), will wait with baited breath (not sure what that means) on word of your next project. And, based on the little info you gave away in the video regarding the owner of the Bee before you, it'll be another Mopar, which is cool with me. Good luck with the new house and shop, and I guess I'll have to get out wrenching on my Camaro to pass the time until the next thread starts. Cheers Dave!

Very kind words, Mark. Who knows? Maybe someone will hire me to be their personal auto restorer, subsidize my 401k, and pay me a salary equal to the GNP of an emerging Third World territory and I can bag this whole flying thing and have a new thread start each year for the foreseeable future on a different car each time??? Man...Iíve said some stupid things but thatís even pretty stupid for me!

Cheers

Dave

----Dave,,, As a stopgap I'm sure everyone would be ready for a house/super-duper garage build thread. Just sayin! That way you don't loose your MOJO!!!! Just thinking of the stability of the rest of course, as we seem to be addicted to your builds........Bill S

Thanks Guys! Very nice comments which are greatly appreciated! Fear not! I’m sure I’ll come up with more enlightening, educational, and instructional (or is that institutional?) posts until the next car thread starts when the Mustang wraps up. Hmmm...maybe an official House Build thread IS in order here? Update to follow!

A big part of Bee’s journey, restoration, and overall entertaining story comes from this site and the goofiness of the thread. I thank you guys for enjoying my writing, sense of humor, and work. But if you have to give credit to anyone for this, it’s Woj. He’s the one that introduced me to the site. So in reality, this is all his fault!

Cheers

Dave

That's quite a project right there! Some good news trickled in over the weekend. The new owner of the Bee just took Best of Show at the West Coast Mopar Spring Fling!!! Several guys recognized the car from MCACN and of course, this thread. Waiting on a pic of the award with the car to post up!! Very exiting considering there were more than 500+ cars there!!

Another chapter begins for the second life of The Beater Bee!! It will return to MCACN in 2019 for the 50th Anniversary of the A12 cars too and by then I'm hoping to have the next Epicable Saga build thread car in the Barn Find section waiting on deck!

Pics to follow.....

Cheers
Dave
