Hello everyone

It has been a while since I have been on. I got super busy with work and other projects.

I am a super moderator, but it has been a long time since I have been active.

I found out this last December that I have rectal cancer. I had a tumor the size of a grapefruit in my rectum area and a quarter size tumor that spread to my stomach area. I had surgery to remove both tumors and am awaiting word on my chemo treatment. This is stage 4.

I just got my first 5th gen yesterday. It is nothing but a shell, but none the less it is a 2010 Camaro. I found it on craigslist for $300. The quarters are dented in. It isn't much, but all I needed to start a drag car project. I plan on hanging on the body panels anyway.

Best wishes for a good outcome with the chemo, I will think send some good thoughts your way. That looks like it will make a great drag car!

Good to hear you're doing better.
Keep a positive outlook. It helps with recovery.
Prayer works too. I know.

Great price for the Camaro shell. With it being just a shell, fixing the quarters should be a lot easier.

Hey Brandon...it's good to hear from you...we really miss you here at MC! There's no one left to keep an eye on me...lol

I'm glad to see that you still have a few projects left to finish so you MUST stick around for awhile to see them through. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family in the meantime...
