Thanks jay!! I would rather have other super powers anyway!! I am already dying to go for a spin, but that is still 4 months away. It is never driven before the street cleaners have finished cleaning the roads in the Spring.

That way there is no room for "crap this is heavy"

Great work Jim.
That is some great insight Al. Thanks for that and I will for sure start employing that this morning for squats. I know what I'll do - get really mad a JB for making me squat 410 for reps!! That Bastard!! Grrrr

Also I didnt know you were a foxbody guy. I have always loved those cars. Best friend had a 93 lx 5.0 that was white, beautiful car.
Thanks JB!! Indeed, I think we are onto a great plan that will work for me on bench. I just didn't have a good groove on that 3 board first rep. Now that i have done it, I have confidence I can do it. Getting under these heavy weights is just what I needed.

Yep, I am a Foxbody guy. I grew up with them in my "formative" car years. My brother is a car nut/restorer/mechanic and also loves these cars. They were popular for a reason - bang for the buck - which also left many buyers with enough coin left for further custom upgrades.

I also had a chance to buy a mint 1984 20th anniversary convertible a few years back, but did not have the money nor a garage to put it. Besides, I was always hoping to get this one back. I also wouldn't mind one of those SVO's.

I also liked the 93's. Does he still own it? I didn't really like the 94's much as they were to round looking. I much prefer the boxier muscle look.
