I'm back! WhoTF are all you people?

Damn, I guess I oughta' check in more often. You develop other interests, and when you check back in it's like there's been a junta. Did ya'll gather all the guys I knew, march them out and execute them or what? Anyway, I'm still here, still have the MGM, 83K, still driven once a week, to church, spoiling for a race all the way there and back, STILL can't get those Philistines in their 5.0's to race. Best car I ever bought. Original owner. Still not a leak anywhere. Still a hint of leather and new car smell...I SWEAR! Never had to take it back to the dealer when in warranty. Other than the headers/intake/tune, she is exactly like she sat when I drove her off the lot. Same fluids. (Did change the spark plugs though.) And she is still a national record holder and always will be. That's the main reason I never installed all those parts I've been buying over the last ten years. BUT...that is about to change...it's on:

Thanks. Meth lab. Now THAT is funny! You know, it never occurred to me! But now that you mentioned it, HazMat suits are on sale on Amazon for $27, and I've already got the respirators and Allegra D's. I think I just broke BAD!

Yeah, my rear main seal is weeping only enough to discolor the housing under it. One of the reasons I got the lift, but got suspension and brakes to go on too, fuel pump in tank, not to mention needing to turn a new Tacoma Sport into a mall crawler. Tranny's got to come out of the G8 for the TC for the cam, so plan on changing the seal while in there. Heck, would be good PM to do it anyway after 83K and ten years. I sure miss the good old days a decade ago. Great community. We had so much fun discovering our cars! I hope they are all doing well. The other site is just sad. Like losing a friend.

OMG guys! Haven't seen ya'll in a coon's age. So I STILL have family on here. SO good to hear from you guys! It's been too long. Tchr I am still jonesing for one of those front fender double stripes. And I SHALL get one too as soon as the build is done. We need to invest in one of those magnums of champagne and two glasses for the last two of our breed. Anyone have good info on how many G8's are still on the road? Values been climbing lately? How we doing?

This forum/community is far from the greatness it used to be. This and especially the other forum are dying. Sad.

That's mostly due to social media. Enthusiasts aren't disappearing, they're just moving to a different platform. We are the dinosaurs. Adapt or die.

Yeah, social media takes time. Time I don't have. I've got too many interests now. MGM is right: I am a dinosaur.

What more can you do? It's perfect as it is. I still shop around looking at G8's. I may or may not pick another one up next year when the lease is up on my wife's Jeep.
