Wow, I wouldn't let a Mopar guy with a hammer anywhere near my car, in case he tried to fix something. :) But thats really cool that you drive these cars that much. Even the GT as valuable as it is.

Yep, when you get the poster made I'm on the list.  You've certainly carried the banner for us FE guys, prob'ly made our cars worth just a bit more in the process.  HR will have to publish, yes?  I'd think F'burger would still be favorable to the cause, especially with your class response during the interview when you could have gone off on him for the early "playful" insults.  Instead, you gave them good PR on the event.  As Grandpa used to say, :  "Son, that is how you do that". 8)

I'm curious, do you ever just get one out and drive it around for a while, to work, to the ice cream stand or even to the local 5 & Dime? I certainly would.

When I was invited to the palatial Brown Estate he drove us out to the local steakhouse in the Galaxie....

I got to go to the hardware store in the GT  :P :P :P
A careful study of failure will yield the ingredients for success.

I like to refer to the GT as the "parts chaser"  ;D
