For Sale: 1962 Chevrolet Bel-Air

For Sale: 1962 Chevrolet Bel-Air

Details: 1962 Chevrolet Bel-Air

13,324 original miles. Two owners.

Garage kept for 90% of its 53 years, the rest of the time...it's been protected by a high-tech custom cover. Other than the tires, some of the belts, hoses and a few odds and ends, this car is as it came off the assembly line. It starts easily, still runs, and I just have decided it's time to sell it. My father was offered $25K cash for this car at a show over 10 years ago, the insurance value is ~$17K...I'm splitting the difference at $20K.

There is no restoration here; this is a unique car and I can and will wait for the right buyer.

If you know anyone that's into antique cars...please send them to this blog. My email is djw444@gmail.com. I will keep the pic above as the header until I sell the car.

Needed: Scalpels, Titanium Screws...& Superglue

    
As I continue to rehab, one of the omnipresent questions/concerns I continue to have is how strong - exactly - will  the new attachments between muscle/tendon/bone be where they reattached my ruptured quadriceps tendons to my kneecaps?




From my layman's perspective and medically-deficient level of understanding, I envision a much stronger tendon/bone connection, i.e. like a broken bone that mends, the body's natural healing process will create a stronger site than what existed previously.

And although I truly respect the medical professionals currently responsible for my care & rehabilitation, the answers I'm getting  - which range between "you really won't know for a year" to "it all depends" - just aren't making the grade for my inquisitive mind. 

So, after asking the same question a dozen different ways, one of the folks responsible for my rehab decided to put the issue to rest by showing me what they used to reattach my tendons.


 

Ummm, it didn't work.

As I know quite a few of my visitors have or know people with medical backgrounds...PLEASE send scalpels, medical grade (short) titanium screws...and superglue. I will forever disavow how they were obtained and completely release any/all from liability for my actions.

;o>

Happy Hump Day, folks!
