Congrats on both sides of your story!
I dated my wife for 6 yrs before we got married...of course I asked on the second date, but she said she will have to think about it...
I asked again later - at mcDonalds, after a street race when we were dodging cops...
Still togther 22 yrs later...(16 yrs married)

Just got caught up... I told you guys "those that drill together, chill together". Seriously though, I hope your life together will be as interesting and fun as this thread has been... I've got 28 years toether with the wrong woman, go figure. Mike, its good to know you can see a good thing with an challenged eye. Its still raining like a flood up here in NorCal and the storm is headed South, take tie time to tighten all the bolts again and congratulations.

Lttleindsey question for you and im sure it was somewhere in this thread but there is just to many pages. What battery did you end up going with was it this: "Okay so I'm going to do it. I'm going to buy one of these batteries. If anyone has any experience running one of these please give me a shout.
http://www.turntechbattery.com
I'll let you all know how it goes." and if so how did it work out for you? thanks great im working on my 69 now and im at that point of battery decision

I ended up using the oddessy battery. Eventually my need for a tiny battery was over shadowed by my desire to have enough cranking amps.
