Dude, If ya really gotta get things done then THAT's the priority. You know that, I know that... everybody does (or should!). Keep neocities on the back burner. I do. While I'm gettin' projects done, I'm thinking of ways to change my pages and what to put on. Follow? Good, man. Just keep everybody posted, yeah? Rock On !!! :)
Hey! Don't worry, when I put life in my reasons for leaving, that was less about personal problems and more of an excuse to get it to more then two things. :P However my main priority is of course life and all that jazz, family first and all. I plan on trying to update this when I can, just know that you are an awesome dude, Rock On !!! :D
Dude, that's "The Classic". Sam Raimi's trademark '73 Olds Delta 88. A close friend (later bro-in-law) owned a '76 Cordoba with the 440 or 400 4bbl. Did your Newport have the push-button AT or was that just the older ones?
Lotta memories, man.
Are you "sure" we don't know each other? Check this out: https://kenny46140.neocities.org/vehicles.html
I think that must've been the older cars. I had an automatic trans but it was just set up on the steering column like most cars. It was a great road trip car - 5000 pounds of rolling couch with a 400 big block. Seeing your Impalas, my first was a 1968 Impala wagon kick me down from my parents when I was 16. That was THE party wagon for high school. lol
It seems like we're people who would've known each other, but you're out in the midwest and I grew up in Northern Virginia....although I DID live for a year in Bloomington, IND back in the early 90s.
Yeah, man. Both of my Impalas were party-rides, babe-mobiles and me the wheelman (not designated if ya catch). Dude, we just must be bruthas from anutha mutha: I lived in Bloomington from '90-'95. '95 Bought that log home (not the Evil-Dead one) north of Bloomfield, west of BFE. Sold it and moved in '05. I miss it. Cool share, my man.
And here I am. Since the '05 divorce. Broke as a '73 Pontiac but not as sluggish! Ha! :)
Bloomington, Indiana... the "town" ya love to hate. I drove nearly every street/road there back then even all around Lake Monroe. That "town", man. Huh... my ex-wife and 2 sons live there.
Huh. Yeah, I'm sittin' here shakin' my head. I met alotta cool people there. Foreign and Domestic. Opened my eyes more. Huh. That damned town.
I remember hanging out at Lake Monroe. There was also this creak that ran out of town(?) where I found a number of really nice geodes while ading through it. That was something totally fascinating and unexpected. (Was a big rock collector when I was young) Wish I still had them.
*creek, lol. There was also an excellent gaming store in the center of town. I can't remember the name of it, but it was up a slightly hilly street so it was mostly underground - a long window ran along the wall at street level. It had just boxes and boxes full of old D&D modules, gaming books, comics, etc. Loved the place.
Man, I know that "crick" had a funny name. I'll remember. Yup, alotta geodes and etc all over... and too much "leaverite". That's a concretion of stuff that you should "leave right there" because it's worthless! Ha! The old glacier pretty much stopped there at Bloomington.
Yup, I did alotta business at that comic shop; Buy, Sell & Trade. It was (and still may be) on 6th Street east of Walnut. The dude in there was a big DC fan. I think I sold or traded him one of my R2-D2 cookie jars and a lot of my D&D (et al) stuff. I went to about every shop/store in that whole area. Did you work at any? Would we have met?
I think most of the creeks (and small towns around there) had funny names. A few in particular I used to joke about or make up songs while driving by their sign. I looked at the map and couldn't find it right away. I saw where that Comic etc. Shop was and it's not there, BUT it probably moved (like a lot of the older shops did back then). In that area were a Model Shop and Music Shop I'd hit, too. I'm a thinkin'! ;)
I remember; "Lick Creek" was one. "Knob Ditch" another. And "Gnaw Bone" a town just east of Nashville, Ind. The further south of Bloomington was where the Great Kentuckian Migration stopped. Bedford, Ind pronounced as "Beh-Ferd" along with towns named after native american words (which were cool). Thought you might be Mark B., but are you Mark S.? That'd be too much a coincidence, but eh... gotta ask.
Haha, neither. I am Mark M.
THAT's cool, too! Haha! You just seem like both those Marks for some reason; Jusy "very cool guys" who are always on the same page or way better! Cool, man. BBL! :)
Thanks! VERY cool. I'll be trying to get time to update mine (adding buttons and etc). Wish me luck! Same-same, Have a Great one! :)
