  • Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    For those that have been around year to year, you know on the holidays I like to write a heartfelt message. Well - this year is no different. If there's one thing that I think all of us on Michigan FBody has learned over the past 6 months it's that life is short. Every day we're above ground is a blessing, and tomorrow is the official day to be thankful for it. But let's be honest - every day we should be thankful for what we have, for another day to be around, and another day to spend with loved ones. We never know when it will be gone.

    In addition to the normal things to be thankful for - family, friends, health, wealth (mentally/emotionally/spiritually), I also want to take the time this Thanksgiving to be thankful for knowing Mike Greenan, for having the opportunity to be friends with Tom Halley, and for Baby Meissen guiding us to Angie's tumor growing inside her. The past 6 months have been trying for a lot of us - from the aforementioned to Ken's diagnosis of cancer - we've all leaned on each other at times when we needed strength and support. For that I am truly forever thankful for everyone here on this site. We may ***** at each other, we may quarrel with disagreeing opinions on politics, technologies, engines, or brands but through it all we've always been here for each other and that means a lot to me - that's the environment I am proud to have here.

    With that - please take the time to reflect on what you're thankful for this weekend, be sure to let those who matter know, and at least for a few moments try not to take advantage of what we have because it can all be gone in a heartbeat.

    Please don't drink and drive, please buckle up, and have a great Thanksgiving everyone.

    • 2017 Meet & Greet - Supporting a new charity: International FPIES Foundation
      by meissen
      As some of you may know, about a year ago Angie and I moved to New Haven, MI - about 30 miles northeast of Detroit. In the past year, we've met a lot of great neighbors and one of them has a very unique story. The couple who live across the street from us have a son named Elliott who is battling two extremely rare conditions. First, he has what's called "FPIES" which essentially means he has an allergic reaction any time he ingests proteins found in food. Problem is - the protein is found in almost...

      Looking for a pit bike that is small enough it would fit inside a Firebird (pull pass. seat, ratchet strap to the floor there lol) Doesn't need to be fancy or fast, just want something for putzing around

    • Happy Birthday MiFBody!
      by meissen
      11 years ago today our little chunk of the internet was born. Y'all know I'm a sentimental emotional guy, and this website has admittedly been one of my proudest achievements. What we have here means a lot to me - it's why I'm so passionate when it comes to trying to maintain the peace and kumbaya. This site is our spot to shoot the shit with fellow Camaro and Firebird cruisers and to get help and advice - whether it's on their car or personal lives. I know we rag on eachother a bit here and there,...
