    JDP is one of those guy's that does good deeds for others and deserves a good turn, if those guy's at the repair shop only knew, they would keep the car overnight until the undercoating dried. I spent some time with him on Tuesday and he is a fine gentleman. I was at the Reedsville swap meeet.I bought some folks with me and they took up most of my space. I e-mailed JDP for a favor, he called and was able to pic up my parts(large doors 2) I picked them up and can not express the gratitude that I felt for him. I have never met him and he did this for a forum member. I had talked to Mr. Simmons about these door and he would have had to take them back accross the border. JDP actually helped both of us. I hope one day I can do something for him. Great guy[8D]I will not forget!

        Yes, it's nice to be connected. I often forget how lucky I am to work at a dealership. I have access to great parts people, an excellent body shop, talented technicians, guys with tow trucks or car trailers and a hoist to use any time I want. Your post reminded me to stop over at my aftermarket parts supplier with a box of donuts. Those guys are great.

            I must confess that I'm the lucky one being on this list with such great folks who provide such wonderful help and information to those who ask, case in point the gearbox rebuild at the International Meet for Mr Bams.

            Now that I have (with family help) cleared my debts, my finances will slowly build up and within 5 years (hopefully sooner) I'll be able to get a car.

                The most fun I've ever had for 75 cents was to pay the toll for stranger's cars behind me during rush hour traffic and then drive away and watch them try to figure out who I was. Guess tolls are more than that now.

                    Had another pay it forward last night. I went out for a few beers with my friend Robyn and switched to diet coke about midnight while Robyn tried to empty the keg. The bartender though I was "sweet" for watching over my friend and being a responsible drinker. Although I tipped the bartender about $10.00, she tossed the much bigger bar tab in the trash. BTW, I met Robyn at the American legion post in Annapolis and was shocked to find slot machines. Is there some kind of wink and a nod law about about private clubs and slot machines ?
