    Most probably sold or moved on to a different vehicle, as Frank says, it's speculation without asking...

    I posted maybe a dozen times over on Marauder board after I sold mine, not since... That's nearing three years now...

    Some moved on to closed social media groups. No bs. No bickering. No trolls. ITs just the way things are moving.

    some of us have been busy with other things in life. I'm still racing at Wild Horse Pass in Phoenix but even that has calmed down a bit. Can't really afford to head East for the Roundups or the Gatherings since I'm completely retired now. I mat just show up at another one sometime and surprise everyone.

    Y'all were the guys who kept me going for all of those years. Now that I'm putting it back together, I was just wondering who was still around. Y'all all helped me out a lot.

    I still lurk here occasionally...try to help out when I can...but usually just keep quiet. I buy some parts every now and then from members.

    I took off a couple of years from here after the whole demerit system thing came about. There was a certain member who was on here for a couple of years that knew EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING...young guy...you know...one of those "I had a 68 Maverick with a Boss 302, 4 speed, and 9 inch with 4.56 gears and notched shock towers from the factory" types . My BS meter finally pegged, and I pointed out my perceived impression of his intellectual ineptness (ok... I called him an idiot ;)). He got his feelings hurt, and I got a lifetime demerit...and a warning to be a gentler, kinder human. So, being the warm, fuzzy, and totally cuddly guy I am...I figured it was probably best if I just took my ball and went home :)

    In those couple of years, I roamed the Earth in search of ways to prove my worthiness to mankind, and mend my evil and demeaning ways...secretely longing to one day be worthy of coming back here and being accepted as a valid and valued member of this community, and recognized as having shed my outlaw ways. To be able to stand tall here and not be shunned as an outcast...to finally be able to...aw heck...actually, I was just crazy slammed at work, and when I did check in here, it seemed like a lot of the same stuff with different screen names, so I just lurk until something catches my eye :rolleyes:

    How've you been Preston?

    You didn't miss much. My BS meter hit same high as yours. I still check in once in a while but kinda gave up trying to help out. After 25 years in the trade my patience wears thin for know it alls.

    Lol, I know what y'all mean. I still run into people who had one with a Boss 302, boss 351 etc. There's no arguing with them. We know what the cars were built with, heck most of us have dismantled our cars numerous times. I want y'all to know that I learned a ton from yalls advice. I know I didn't list everyone up there who helped me, I got distracted, lol. But I'm very grateful for Yalls help back in the day. From 14-21, y'all helped me take my car apart, fix it, upgrade it, swap it and put it together again time after time. I always appreciated the info and advice!!
