    Yeah im still alive and well. Just went through a divorce and what not before I came to Guam. Was able to keep my house through the divorce by some grace of God. I ended up buying my truck back. I missed it, and like you said she's my girl. She is safe back in Arkansas at my house. Although I was having a rash of theft going on at my house the first couple months I was gone. Found out it was an inside job. They stole the amp and CD player out of my truck but the person renting the house paid the deductible so all that has been replaced already. The roomate that she had got the boot and all is well again. I really havnt been around too many of the boards lately aside from some of the local boards here in Guam and the Local arkansas boards of course. Yeah I need to find another Festiva. I have big plans and will hopefully complete those plans this time. Well good to hear you guys are doing well. When im back in town ill let you know. Maybe by then this Mazda/Ford Club could be getting started. Peace Jeremiah

    Wow sounds like the plans I have for my place. Yeah I was only married for about 6 months. No big deal. She said I worked on cars too much. Whats crazy is that I have always worked on cars ever since the explorations of the 1st Gen GT I had at your place. I want to thank you for providing a location for me to get some learning in. Ever since then I have been hooked. You helped me in ways that I cant even begin to thank you for. I still owe you money for the stuff that I broke and the sodas and what not. I feel like an ass for not paying you yet. How big is your house and how much did you pick it up for if you dont mind me asking??? My house is in Southern Jacksonville off by itself. Its about 1700 Sq Ft. I picked it up for 69,900. Its a nice house. I love it to death. I am very glad I made the purchase. Im just not to thrilled about not living in it right now. Well talk to you later. Jeremiah

    Hey Mike what company if any are you going through for your shop. What kind of construction will you be using and what kind of finished price are you looking at. I am really wanting to go ahead and build my shop as soon as I get back to Arkansas but I have been reluctant due to lack of knowledge or who to go through. I have been looking at some of the Sutherlands Pole Building Garages but I am not too sure about them. Any help or suggestions you could give would be great. Thank you Jeremiah

    I truly understand your situation...hell at one mod day/weekend we pulled and engine from one first gen and installed it in another...and managed to strip a bunch of parts for someone else in the process.....but I am still checking around for the parts you need and will send them to ya just as soon as I can find a place with them, where the price in not catastophic

    I don't remember you getting your butt soaked in the rain while I was pulling the front seats and center console out of that 1st Gen. :lol: You were in the "dry" garage helping Jeremiah do his engine swap. :lol:

    I may not have gotten soaked that day, but I did manage to get two engines done within the week....at least yours was semi clean by comparison....not saying the seats were spotless...by any means...hell for 15 yr old seats they were in good shape though :)

    The seats were in great shape, that is for sure. And I do remember cutting the hell out of my hand that day too. I was trying to remove some panels when it happened. :lol: Well, maybe when you get your new shop, we can hold more meets and try to hit some local car shows.

    the biggest problem three was that one half shaft...and it we'd brought a coupld of prybars from my toolbox that would have been out quicker...but it could have been worse...and still nott oo bad for doing that in a j/y without and engine hoist
