Kelly R. Aka... bigblock79

Hey guys......I was finally able to meet one of our local forum members here in Boise, Idaho.

As most of ya'll know Kelly is trying to sell one beautifull 10 sec. 79 Merc. Capri. I've never actually been able to see the car in person untill last night, i must say that this car is well built w. top quality parts and perfect's really a steal for the money he's asking..Anyone thinking about building a similiar car should consider this option as the sum of the parts is worth twice what he's asking......go check it out cause it's that nice!

Now then.....the reason i was able to meet Kelly was I'm needing a larger carb for my new 545.......after many posts about this and that kelly had emailed me interested in my outings and offered up his expensive Quick Fuel 1050 for me too try......i was hesitat to take him up on this and sorta put it on the back burner..
Yesterday i Pmed him asking if the offer still stood and to call me to chat...later the same day he called, chatted, invited my over, pulled the carb and sent it out of his possesion w/o hessitation to a complete stranger....
I'm very thankfull for all the other people on this forum who do the same everday for almost complete strangers...
Kelly.....I thank're carb will be well taken care of and i'll have it back to you next monday...
Thanks a ton...

Thats the type of thing that makes this board great people helping others further thier hobby. Kelly that makes you a great guy in my book. I have looked at your capri and was thinking about it several times myself as wanting to go pavement racing but can't seem to sell my stuff either. But good luck to both of ya
