It's in pretty rough shape right now but I hope to get it restored some day soon(if I can stop spending so much money at Disney )

I'm a ragtop man, had a '85 LX 5.0 vert many years ago, went through almost a couple decades of sensible cars (did my time in the minivan!) and now have an '08 GT500 vert. Trying to talk my wife into a new 5.0 but she's just not into cars
I will buy it and restore it for you .I had one same color and yr.Had to sell it when I was younger and have been wanting to get another now for yrs.

MLSC: Mike Lake Swim Club.

Of which I'm the Founder, President and CEO.

It's open to any and all boaters who decided they didn't need to stay dry and "dove into" the water.....usually applied to Fisherman who become "human fish finders", but anyone is welcome---

If you intend to go overboard, it doesn't count

Many, many more have joined our ranks...
I guess I found a new club to belong to. I was fishing a tournament a few years back on a local lake. It was raining pretty good and it was cold. One of those days where you wish you would have not pre-registered. I was moving from one side of the boat to the other and kicked my favorite rod over. Not thinking I went to grab it and well kinda went in water. Worst part was I lost the rod.

YEEESSSS!!!!! A new member!!!!!

"Kinda" went inthe water?

Is that like "Kinda" pregnant??

Man, it happens....how many times has Bill Dance gone in....but it sure is embarassing when it's, ya know, at the ramp...in front of, ya know, like 50 people.

On a happier note, since my wife was the VBS director this year and probably will be again next year we have some sway as to what the theme will be. I was thinking, "hmmm, theme. Disney has theme parks. Maybe I can connect the two". And then it hit me. "World Showcase" would be a great theme where we could highlight Paul's missionary journey. So that's what we're doing! Now if I can just figure out how to sneak some hidden Mickey's in to the decorations...
"People being blasted by dodgeballs" scenes are always funny. Kinda like air horns and inhaling helium.

Our VBS did something similar last year. The theme was the Amazing Race, and they did a different country each week. I forget exactly how it tied in.

I've been checking Travelocity daily for months and today the fare from Richmond to Orlando dropped by $50. Not only that, but it dropped below the magic $150 level which means my miles rewards with Capital One will pick up one of the tickets. So instead of paying nearly $800 to get to the mouse in December, it's going to cost us just $418. Woohoo! Maybe I'll make more ADR's!!

It's January....and yes, it's very very very very cold.

Water temp: 41

Air tem: 34, with wind chills in the 20s.

Let's just say that, because of where I "dove in" (), there were lots and lots and lots of witnesses....and only one camera...

Oh, and for all of you that have not been reading along with Tim's PRT, that's nice and FreezinRafiki are now mortal enemies. (Tim - I know we agreed on arch nemesis, but you've got to admit - mortal enemy has a very nice poetic ring to it.) So just in case any epic battles for world supremacy break out, y'all have a heads up.

Hi my name is Kevin and I have also fallen in the water while fishing. I have been reluctant to admit to the said incident since it was quite embarassing. I was fortunate to only have my partner on the boat with me when the incident occured. Wow I feel better already. I have been carrying that around with me for years not being able to admit it.

First of all,returning you to shore was never part of our agreement. Second, you are not a pirate, so the Pirate's Code does not apply. And third, the Pirate's Code is more of a set of what you'd call 'guidelines' than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl.

Awesome! My first minion. Or henchman. Feel free to call yourself whatever you want. I'll have my HR team get in contact with you regarding the benefits package. We have a nice dental plan. It's the least we can for you since there will be a good chance you will die a horrible death in a bloody battle. Oh, and we also have a nice education reimbursement plan.

Oh, I almost forgot - my daughter is one of only 3 people in the world that have been granted permission to call him that. Hopefully she's not some kind of double agent.

That's quite the list of quotable movies you guys have there. A few more for your consideration off the top of my head:

Planes, Trains & Automobiles
What About Bob? (very underrated movie)
My Cousin Vinny
Pirates of the Caribbean
The Untouchables (mostly anything Sean Connery says)
And for cheesy one-liners, you can't beat Commando and Cliffhanger

Well, we know Tim is a Yankees fan, so that may push his side into pure evil right there.

If I'm a minion or a henchman, does that mean I have to wear a red shirt?
