Good Luck to you and your family.  I will always remember your 1st email ,
about 3 months into the Iraq war, from the carrier, your love of your family
and the love of your V8.
Hmmmmm........my brother lives in Kent, would be a good excuse for a visit
and a killer road trip back to KC.

> Quick refresher...my orders have me out of the cockpit for a few years to
knock out my "staff" tour - luckily I have been selected to a position at a
NATO command in Naples, Italy.  Alas, the V8 will not be coming with us, so
she must go to someone who will appreciate her.
> Currently, she (1991 V8 5-speed, Pearl/Black, 126,000 with only 64,000 on
a new engine...) is in at Autohaus-Vick in Bellevue, WA for a Steering Rack
replacement.  The rack was the last of the big ticket items that needed to
be accomplished (Timing Belt, Brakes/Rotors, Clutch, etc...), but I needed
to wait until I made my way up here to the Pacific Northwest to get her in
the hands of a trusted shop.  I will not regurgitate the list of everything
else that has been done in the last year, but suffice it to say she is in
prime condition!
> Unfortunately, I will never drive her again, as she will not be ready
until tomorrow (Wednesday, 30 June), and I fly out of SeaTac at 0715.  My
father will be picking her up and then bringing her back to their home which
is just up the road from Autohaus-Vick in Northeast Bellevue.  I have spoken
to Tom Vick, Autohaus' Service Manager and he understands the situation.  If
any of you are interested in the vehicle (which many of you were when I
initially mentioned the impending parting that would occur around this
time...), please feel free to contact Tom or go by their shop to see her up
on the rack, as this would be a great chance for you to be assured of her

> Regardless, my father and mother, Robert & Eugenia Murphy, will need to be
contacted to coordinate test drives/showings of my V8.  They have a Power of
Attorney, and will be the ones that will execute the transaction.

the years "own" the wide open roads of the Desert Southwest under those
endless clear blue skies...

> P.S.  Although I did not see any of you during the trip, rest assured that
she had a GREAT run up I-5, with memorable four wheel drifts through the
curves of Shasta north of Redding and the Siskiyous bordering California and
