Stars have align and now I am going to retire at the end of October. Jody (Sailing) is going to be my last SSR that I will be doing. She drop it off yesterday for complete redo and will pick it up during the Chocolate/ Covered Bridge Tour that I co-host.
It has been 42 years and now it time to join all the other retired fanatics :laugh:. I would like to thank all who had there SSR's worked on here. The SSR has been a passion of mine ever since getting one back in 2004. It has been a pleasure to help anyone that had a question or need of repair on their R.

Oh by the way Jody's R will only take two weeks:grin2:

I know you are going to enjoy retirement. Is this going to affect the C/CB Tour in future years? I am sure you cannot improve it, but it might be that you would be less pressured during planning.

First met you at the Power Tour at the Memphis Autoplex with Focks and Phoenix. We had just bought Hawk and were on our way back to San Diego. Caught you racing a Mustang back then. Have always looked forward to seeing you guys. Congrats to your upcoming retirement. How Lucky Jodi is to have the Last place in line at your Shop. Don't look at the empty spaces behind Hers, but, go to the other side and look Foreward to see what has yet to be done. Never Look Back, Always look Foreward to the Future, ay! We'll be seeing you.... Down the Road!

Retirement:

Doug,

Congratulations on your retirement.....welcome to the "club". :cheers

I retired early last year after a 46 year career as a structural engineer. I know that you're due and ready, and I hope that your career did not "burn you out" as bad as mine did me.

Enjoy hopefully the stress free living that your certainly have earned.

Alex
