Ok, Mike which of the 2 tickets really won? Yours or hers??? LOL!!!
You know, I feel so lucky it's just amazing.. But not just about the drawing. My wife was the one who told me at the hospital (I was hospitalized because of brain swelling, I wake up and my pillow is soaked with blood,, from my ears? sorry to gross you all out..That's the side of War nobody wants to hear about), so anyways she told me I won some turbo, I didn't believe her, She told me I got a call, I didn't believe her, I told her the drawing was supposed to be Saturday and she said it's already Saturday! So as for who "Won" That's the interesting part.... I just looked at her once I knew it was for real and she said "let me guess, you want to give it to Frank" I nodded up and down meaning yes (my head was pounding) my wife gave me 100% permission to offer the kit to Frank first..As you all know Frank sent me some seats...and it's not about "Value" meaning $$$ here guys... To me it was seeing a friend who went through one of the hardest trips to Glamis after doing everything to organize all this stuff, still found the time to help me out before he left, Has his engine blow up..So yeah, I wanted to give him the Turbo out right! and had I been there I probably would have shoved it in his camper or something...Only problem is Frank would probably have sent it back to me...As a stage II!! (J/K) on that part, but really, It just shows how much he really cares for everyone...he has a true heart of Gold, and I see that in most of our top contributing members.. I've learned about so many good people this Glamis trip that I can tell you with 100% certainty that I will be there next year!! Stars & Stripes ready to fly!!
I know that some of you might think I've literally lost my mind, but I haven't..Where I come from you take care of your friends, you do what you can no matter what.. Frank is definitely his own person and very genuine, which is one of the reasons we started talking in the first place. He knows more about me then anyone on this forum to include AKsean who has stopped by my Garage.. Although I may seem talkative "online" and about the RZR, it's been an uphill battle for me to get out and meet people again..You guys are all like therapy for me
but without the huge bill!!
I could see Franks reasoning for turning down the black Fullbore kit,(his windows, doors, ect.) but I actually thought I had him with the Turbo.. I really thought he would accept it.. But Frank feels strongly that I should hold onto it and that I could use the HP
As I have had many a small chats and back and forth messages with Frank, I've come to understand the type of man he is. Pushing something on him would be disrespectful and I will honor his decision, However I will not give him a choice when it comes to getting up and helping him in cooking breakfast at Glamis for everyone and making him a huge Steak dinner!!.. Now my build thread is going to get a bit bigger.... But I will up the game...
As MCX and the rest of the community Donated this Turbo, apparently there is a great deal of interest, I am going to film the entire build..With several Camera's very good lighting, and it will be as close to "professional" editing as it can get.. My goal is a complete video that's quick, to the point, and shows everything! The standard build time according to the website is 8-12 hours depending on the builder, It will be more like a 48 Hour build as I might have to install and take parts off to film at different angles ect.. I truly feel this is what I can do to give back to everyone!!
Thank you all, MCX, Cliff(Tuf-Skin), Trey(Boost_it), Gary(Turbo-Giff), Frank(FJK), and the many others involved who all made this possible..
