The continued abuse is really getting to him. He is upset that so many feathers have been ruffled, and seems to have a lot of regret.

Also, his car is no longer running.

I've been absent most of this month so perhaps I missed something, but from what I've noticed Bill hasn't come up unless Steve has mentioned him.

Yeah? What's up? I haven't really heard much about Bill abuse.

[Cue Steve]

-1!

Now what! Actually I don't know how many exact miles he has put on 5939 but it has been quite a bit. The way he's zooming up and down the east coast, it has to be one of the most driven Ds in recent years. His garage and church buses and school board activities are keeping him busy, although messages for help from cars that have recently come back out of hiding are popping up here and there. Anyway, his car looks and runs great and I got a free bottle of diet cheerwine.

For those of you in Rio Linda, my first post was not entirely serious or meant to be taken as fact.

So Bill didn't come to see you? What about your second post, did you see him then? What about now, do you see him in the room with you now?

Yeah... I'm confused. Was this whole thing just a big troll?

Yes, he did actually come to see me, and of course his car works. No, he is not in the room I am in now as he has no active warrants against him. It was really just about how he uses the hell out of his car and doesn't baby it.

Maybe that's what you should have said, instead of this:

Odd, there seems to be no similiarities at all in your original post and what you meant to say...are you a bot?

I thought new member "keepitsimple" and Bill were one and the same for a while.

I like Bill, he's always been nice to me and helped with my questions. I'm proud to call him a member of DCVA.

Correct. I do not actually exist. Now, if you'll give me your credit card number, I will give you the vast fortune my father Prince Udumgadabo left me when he was visiting New York from his native Nigeria.

Don't take it too hard. I was just saying the other night how I don't understand a post that consists of only "+1" and little else. I doubt anyone will remember for any length of time that you were officially on record as agreeing or disagreeing with whatever the hell is being said. It's just dumb to plus one.

When I am on vacation I occasionally see a meeting room reserved for "Friends of Bill W." Always wondered what it was but was on vacation, so never bothered to look. Until now. Turns out that it is an AA offshoot, I guess.

Perhaps we should set up a "Friends of Bill R." for Carb Addicts.

Just received an eMail about this thread. My super secret DMCTalk ID is "DeloSTM" not "keepitsimple".

#5939 is running just fine, thank you very much. In June it traveled round trip North Carolina-Orlando In July it traveled round trip North Carolina-Long Island, with a side trip to Lancaster PA. This little jaunt to DC is nothing (I make the trip 6-8 times per year, at least half of them in the DeLo). #5939 averages 7,000-8,000 miles per year altogether.

FWIW I am currently driving on one of my home made manifolds -- the same manifold that was on display at DCS'12. It's a dual plane design that is much milder mannered than my sand cast single plane Volvo manifolds, at the expense of upper RPMability (dual plane manifolds shift the power band downwards, single plane manifolds shift it upwards).

The two manifolds I've got welded up are already spoken for. I will start machining pieces for three more after I get back, one of which is spoken for as well (a Georgia owner who uses this forum quite regularly). Brings the total number of carb conversions I have assisted, not counting my own, to 18: 16 home made manifolds and 2 Peugeot 604 manifolds (does not include Steve's Peugeot 604 manifold, which will likely become mine).

Anybody know whatever became of Danny Silvia (The Aviator)? I've got a Peugeot 604 adapter plate for him too if he ever rematerializes.

Sam's boat is very nice, and his girlfriend cooks like a 4 star chef.

Correction: 17 conversions not counting my own (and not counting keepitsimple's) -- I can't add.

Similar to "General Farrar"

Speaking of dreams- I had one where Bill was using Steve's account and there was this dark faceless figure whispering, "No, no, it's David"
