Hi my name is Rick. I was referred to this site by my best friend he is "stonebender" here. I live in northern utah, i enjoy collecting and finding rare stones and gems. Being a rock hound is just in my blood, my great grand father was an avid collector and when he died most of his collection was dispursed to the smithsonian and other museums through out the country. My favorite stones are red beryl, sapphires & rubys, and garnets. I also enjoy going very very fast i have a goal to hit over 200mph at the salt flats this year in my pro street style 1978 WS6 Trans Am. Pics of my collection coming soon
Thank you

As much as Rick loves his T/A, he's still pestering me to get my 68 Mustang back on the road. He "misses it"... Awww.
Hot Roddin' Gem Nerds, we are.

Ginge, a few of the pieces of the Red Beryl I posted are Rick's, but he has a lot more nowdays.

Hey Rick. Glad you are joining us. There's enough information here to keep you up all night for months.

i had a 66 mushoss-with a 289-in highschool (100+ years ago, lol), after having it repainted and the motor rebuilt by parker brothers, had to let it go because of rust around the tire walls and in the trunk. loved that car- it was a chickensh*t green or sauterne gold.

Rust. Salt used on snowy New England Roads is the grim reaper for old cars. Sadly, the wife's Jag is starting to show it...sic transit gloria mundi.

I had one old car's frame literally fall apart while I was driving it. It was interesting.
Cars made from the late 80's are E-Coated and we no longer see the rust problems any more.

My dad tells a story of an Oldsmobile that him and his friends almost bought in Kansas back in the mid 60s. But when they removed the bricks from around the frame and opened the doors it just buckled and bent right in the middle of the door opening. Rust can be pretty devistating. Thank God my Mustang has ZERO!

Hey Rick... Glad you had a safe return to Utah.

I use Tinypic.com as my image hosting site. It's the only one that cooperates with my computer. But there is photobucket.com, fotki.com, etc. You upload the images there and copy the [IMG]blahblahpic.38423[IMG] code and paste it into your post.
