So this guy walks into a chat room

Post #1 by Cookie » Tue Dec 18, 2007 5:06 am

and there is a yellow 1976 garage kept Wing for sale that has not run in some time. The owner says he thinks it needs points and he has some.
Somebody help me. Stop me before I buy again. It is only supposed to have about 18,000 miles. Perhaps I could just take up heroin.

I'm no good to you. I'm thinkin' about takin' up heroin myself.
I've known H addicts before and they never gave a thought to bikes, sports cars, or streetrods let alone throw good money after bad at them.

Don't stop till you got the '76 in your garage! I fell in love with the yellow '76 the first time I saw one. I would grab it now... got any pics?

Yeah....
Try as I might, Still can't help.
And dude,,,It's really too late for heroin too.

If I know you....and I'm guessing I do a fair bit.....You won't find much in today's world that will give you "that feeling" for any amount of money like this YELLOW thing will.

Close your eyes and imagine yourself walking into your garage and OH!
The first thing you see is the Yellow thing. It gives you that fire in the belly feeling and you are so f'in glad you did it. It's better than Heroin. And at times,,,OK I"LL SAY IT!...I'm going to say it. BETTER THAN SEX.
Even if you don't believe that....Think,,,,, which is more common. Sex or '76 yellow.

Then think,,,"one time I had a chance but I didn't do it." Well my brother,,,I doubt you ever said that about sex....AND.....I bet it cost alot more too!! HUH??? Am I right???? ALOT MORE?????

Personally,,,I'll be disappointed if this little DAISY don't bloom. In fact I think we should take up a collection.

What do you think guys??? $5 PayPal a piece?

It really is a special situation.

Our brother wants a BLONDE that doesn't talk back except when it sounds nice. Oh Daisy,,How'd you learn to talk way low like that.... How did you learn to walk like that?????

It's a great investment.....Anyone disagree??? NOT.

My old daddy once said, "Gunga,,,you could sell a refrigerator to an Eskimo."

I didn't get it. All I could see was a smiling Eskimo.

I'll donate.

$5 a member and about a gillion members. We could own every GL1000 in the us in no time and slowly bring them to life and sell them all to Jay Leno for a bajillion more dollars. Cookie, I have 2 in the area tempting me. a 75 and a 76. I check Craigslist everyday hoping they will be gone and I wouldn't have to buy them.
Mostly parts now.

After this one I swear I'll quit Craigslist too. Honest. You guys are all a bunch of Honda junkies.
I hope its a total junker in person as that will make my life so much easier.
