Cheers to Splinehead!

This is the place to kick a few tires, drink a few beers, and tell a few tales.

Cheers to Splinehead!


Post by BAust » 07 May 2018, 10:20

I got to have Splinehead Gary over on Saturday afternoon/evening and we visited and drove a couple of Cougars around and he bought me dinner. He is visiting from Holland, MI for work, currently. We had a great time. Shared a couple of cocktails, checked out the rev range of a GT-E, got caught in the rain driving home "Rosie", and told some lies. There's no better time than quality time in the shop with a new car friend. Man, the stores he has..haha..

I just wanted to say, I sure love this community. Gary is just another example of the fine gentlemen and interesting personalities and professions represented in this Cougar hobby. As Cougars are unique and interesting and amazing, I find that their owners and passionate collectors are just the same!

Cheers, Splinehead! I'm very happy for our new found friendship :beerchug:

NW Oregon is an awesome place. The best thing Brian feed me was his Vodka! Thanks for the hospitality. Now, if I could just get this job done and get home....
