: Hey people...

05-22-03, 04:55 PM
just wanted to say hello. I've been lurking in the background for a while doin lots of reading and thought it was time to say Hi! Nice forum. I have a '95 Fleetwood nearly identical to Katshots (minus the mods). BTW Katshot, sorry to here about your grille as I know you put a lot of work into it. I had the same thing happen to me a while ago. Somebody with a brand new Dodge dually backed into it then took off. I went looking for him right away but never did find him. It's probably just as well cuz he'd be in the hospital and i'd prolly be in jail. Anyhow, cheers everyone.

Cool, another Fleetwood owner! :cool:

Hey dude,
We've talked already right? Nice to see you here.
The big problem about my damaged grill is that it happened at my best freind's shop. One of his mechanics screwed up and a vehicle (my buddy's Bronco to be exact) came rolling out of the bay by itself. He was SO embarrassed. I felt so bad for him, I couldn't get mad.

Welcome aboard!!! And watch out for the hound, sometimes he will come out and bite you when you least expect it :D .

Thanks for the welcome and yah, you're right Kevin, we did speak a while ago. I emailed you after seeing your FW on cardomain and asked about your suspension.

Welcome dude, man those RWD Fleets are huge, and I thought I had a big car! Can't complain about my rear seat room though, it's hugeantic.

Wow is right, but lemme tell you we appeciated every inch of it on our recent road trip to Las Vegas. I live on the west coast on Vancouver Island, British Columbia in Canada and it was about 1500 miles each way. In fact it was so enjoyable, on the return trip I just drove all night (left Vegas @ 12:00 in the afternoon and was back in Canada @ 9:00 A.M.). Gotta love that FW.

Welcome Brackets!;)

I still would not want to be HIT by a suburban or one of those 7 feet high Dodge Ram 4 by 4's! Bigger is better but sometimes I think I would like to be a lot higher.

Welcome Brackets!
Sounds like your luck runs like mine, don't feel so bad man, my Full size Grand Wagoneer jeep was warming up at a high idle with nobody in the piece of junk, all of a sudden it went into reverse all by itself and rammed into the side of my Caddy! and all i could do is watch it happen from my back porch. I was SICK!!! But i will say there is no car built like a Cadillac. And yes i am selling that jeep!

You shouldn't drive while high, it's dangerous! :banana:

Ouch, sorry to hear that S.A. sounds like yours will be much more serious than mine. I just had to replace the hood and grille. Still sucks though, the colour match wasn't quite right and now it's not all original. BTW, thanks everyone for the welcome.
