AARRGGHH!!!!! Just my luck.... and a PSN head count, too

I was out in the shop today swapping the GTAs around and noticed that at some point recently my red GTA has picked up a couple of small DINGS in the roof..... GRRRRRRRR!

Evidently a small utility knife was left up in the rafters during the construction, and it decided to work its way out and fall on top of the car right now, of all times. I assume that was the guilty object, since it was lying on the floor beside the car and I didn't see any other likely culprits in the area.

With so much chicken stuff going on, I may not be able to get it repaired before the PSN meet in two weeks. So if I don't.... there'll be no wisecracks at the PSN show, y' hear me?

What's the head count looking like now for the PSN show in two weeks? I'm still planning to go down on the Thursday prior, but will be staying with a friend instead of at the hotel there. If you're going to be there, post here so I'll know who all to look up and try to meet. Don't forget the planned Saturday get-together after the show as well if we can all get things lined up right ....

If you're going to be there, please look me up if I don't find you. My car will be displayed with the Arkansas Pontiac Association most likely, and I'll have some sort of GTA-related hat or something on, so stop me if you see me so we can say hello, OK?

Skull & Crossbones Looks like im gonna get to go.....

If things go as I have planned I should be there....... Looks like only the 87 will get to make the trip though. Oh bye the way did anyone besides me notice he said " CHICKEN STUFF !!" LOL. Oh bye the way Frankie, I promise no cracks about the dings in your roof. Maybe anyway, he he he he .... That just might be a area for a well placed piece of GTA Memorabilia, like a hat or something. Just a thought....... The 87 is out of her cage and getting all spruced up for the show. Just hoping I can get the underside done in time. If I could just get the bosses, dang 70 Chevelle LS6 454 off the rack. I mean that guy acts like he owns the place. I hope to see everyone, and their cars at the show....

Ooooo, Joe's cruisin' for a bruisin'..... Adios to him getting a GTA Spotlight feature EVER....

Yes, there is a lot of "chicken stuff" going on.....



As you can see, there's about 5.5 to 6 pounds of chicken stuff per bird going on right now. Just for reference sake, that black divider tube in the first photo is 14 inches in diameter.... And we still have two weeks to go before they are caught out for processing; they should be approaching 8 pounds each by Day 60. If any of them ever get me cornered inside the house, I'll be a goner for sure.

It'll be the "1st Annual Frankie Rider Memorial PSN Show"....

And, Joe, the roof dings will cost me $75 and they can work them out before the show.... if I can come up with the $75!!!!

Actually, it's still not a shoo-in that I can even come down for the PSN event. It will all depend on how this next week plays out with these chickens and all.... but I'm hopeful.

Now, of all things, this afternoon my truck's engine started rattling severely. The shop said something about the harmonic balancer most likely.... :toilet: AARRGGHH!

I feel your pain about the dings there frankie! So far I've had someone back into the front of mine, and a shopping cart was pushed into the front pass. side fender that left a nasty dent. All of wich I have yet to get fixed due to lack of funds.
