Hello Everyone, my name is Jimbo, I have a 1972 Charger I am restoring. I am a mechanic by trade. I retired 5 years ago and in the last 5 years I’ve had 16 different surgeries including cancer. I’m now on disability but still able to get around pretty good (thanking God every day). It has been a long restoration, I have had the car about 12 years now. It survived a divorce and has been waiting patiently for me. Hopefully it won’t be much longer before she is back running and my new wife and kids can enjoy her. I worked on cars for over 30 years and more than half of that time I was self employed. I had a great business and great customers and I hated to sell my business but I had to put my health and family first. I hope we can all learn something from each other here. I hope all that reads this will have blessings upon them and thank you for allowing me in.

Just a Christ servant,

Jimbo Barrett

Time is full of inconveniences that tend to
slow ambitions down. Life is the
understanding that inconveniences can be
overcome.
You've done some beautiful work on that
car. You're to be commended for your
efforts despite the inconveniences.
Welcome aboard!
