I haven't driven my first gen since may 2017. Sure has saved me a lot of money. Problem is, I just spend the savings on other stuff.

I haven’t driven mine since 17 either. I have a 47re I need to build up, and all the auto trans bits to swap from 5 speed to auto. I’ve also been spending all my money on other things too.

I’ve also discovered my car does not have the stock gt15, it has a gt1749, which is nice to know.

We are currently working on getting a new house put in and it's taking forever it seems.

Lucky bastards! :lol: I've done nothing but spend money on 2 dodges lately it seems like! I had to put a $1300 trans on my '97, and the '92 needs a bunch of small stuff I haven't bothered with. It snowed here overnight so I need to get the green truck in the barn for the winter. Another 2 day project! :roll:

I've spent plenty on Dodge trucks this year lol. Hopefully next race season I'm able to get the Dakota out more.

Well it looks like The Roo Hunter will be getting a 2nd gen rad, intercooler, and hydroboost. Just picked up a dead 99 for very little money, so that’ll be a fun project.

Rumors of my demise have been grossly exaggerated. We are fine. The rental suffered a little damage and some of my stuff was damaged. Out at the house only a few things got knocked down and no damage. I was expecting to find the contents of my Connex boxes upside down, but no, everything mostly in its place. USGS settled on a 7.0, 7 miles North of Anchorage, 28 miles deep. We have had over 190 after shocks, most of which we felt. A lot of damage to roads and other infrastructure through my area.

Glad to hear you are okay. When was the last time you all had an earthquake like that.

Geez Cougar, I'm sorry! :oops: I never gave it a thought that you were right there! Glad you and all are ok. 190 aftershocks? That's a lot! :shock:

Andy, in '68 or so they had a 9, I guess it was really bad up there. I saw quite a bit on the news the other day.
