    Howdy, folks!

    My name is Rob, I live in Las Vegas, and my car is a '63 Dart. Ok, got the necessities outta the way...

    I've had this car for two months now, wrenching away every weekend. She's rough, but getting better! Last Saturday, I drove it to her first car show, the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend. I had one of the roughest, least-amazing vehicles there, and I was baffled why so many people were photographing it, with so many beautiful rigs present-until I took a stroll. Over 900 cars there, and mine was the ONLY A-body? Ok, cars had to be '64 and older, but no other Darts/Valiant/Barracudas? Where the heck were ya? Y'all better come out next year, or I shall weep bitter tears and no amount of cheap beer will console me.

    Welcome to FABO Rob!

    When you have a "real" car, you get noticed. Watch out for those "Count's Kustoms" guys!!

    Ok, I can believe the part about there was 900 cars and you have the one solitary Abody, but the beer not being able to console you I can't go for.
    I figure anybody who lives in Las Vegas on purpose MUST be drunk all the time, because that is the only way I can imagine anyone would live there.

    Now you know me. :D

    Welcome

      Cool, now I don't have to feel so alone in my/our affliction. :D

      It'd mean a little more if it wasn't coming from someone that didn't live in CA though. LOL

      Being drunk 24/7 would make this city more tolerable, yep, but when I get drunk, I get the spins, and when I get the spins, I become a hurl squirrel. So, I get a little tipsy once in a while. Ah, but if I wasn't a city bus driver? I make a wonderful pot head! It saddens me to know I can pass a drug test, because there are days after driving bus all day, I so want to get toasty.

      I don't, of course, indulge. But wow. Every month or two, traffic lights, taxi drivers and the occasional passenger just rattle me. Been clean for a few years now. But when I retire? Oh yeah.

      Thanks Dave! Going to get nicer, for sure. Hey, you are just down the road from Fairplay, I think. I've been there for the Binder rendezvous a couple times.
