Help! I need something to look at!!!

My friends...I've suffered a pretty bad back injury at work. Since last Friday I've been bedridden and it looks like I may be staying that way for a while. At least the drugs I've been given are superb. My career as I've known it could be over, though it's still pretty early to tell. More MRIs and junk to come. I may even need to find a nice (gasp) Tiptronic.

I believe at this point I have surfed the entire web. Yup, I think I've completed it. I've looked at every Porsche on ebay, every car on SixSpeed, all the cool garages on GarageJournal, UltimateGarages, etc, etc. How 'bout helping a brother out and posting some new pictures of your rides and stuff for me. As you probably know, my interests are cars, cars, dogs, cars, garages, half naked women near cars and cars. Also, if you know of any good exotic car sites like SixSpeed that I may have overlooked, please let me know.

Have at it...

I hope your back gets better.

So are you finally gonna tell us what you do for your career? At least tell us what happened at work.(If you don't mind)

Autospies is pretty neat. Is there anything in particular that your looking for? Ferraris? Boxsters? Pintos?

Hi Grizzly, sorry to hear about your back injury, be sure to get some good thearpy when the time is right. You are probably on top of this, but dont just let the docs start cutting on your back, which they enjoy doing for lots of back injuries. I had a back injury that was pretty bad for over a year, and they eventually did surgery on my low back, which in retrospect, I think I could have avoided with proper thearpy. Best of luck,

Ed

Griz,

So sorry to hear about your back

But, I think I can help :

http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/

This is the only other forum I visit besides here. One of the guys in here posted a thread about the Tail of the Dragon long ago, and I have been checking it out ever since ( never posted though ). Cars and half naked women - you can't beat it ( make sure to check out the "Other Off Topic" section ). A lot of traffic, too !

Good luck, buddy...

Nick

Griz,

Sorry man. Difficult times. I trashed my back 20 years ago getting off a motorcycle the hard way. Nothing worse than lying around waiting to see what will happen. As you said, at least the drugs are good. My prayers are with you. Keep the faith.

Learn as much as you can about your condition and as others have said... once healed, therapy and exercise are the keys to recovery.

Here is a website for the local LA car scene. Porsche, Ferrari, BMW, chicks, the usual stuff. Enjoy. http://www.pcars.us/index.php

Grizzly, sorry to hear about your back injury. Want to read a good book? I just picked-up the new Vince Flynn novel. Very good. Title is "Protect and Defend". Very timely with the Iran situation.

How about a re-run:

I hate to hear that, Griz. I've fought some nagging back pain in the last couple of years, but never anything major. I can't imagine the pain that a major injury brings.

Hope you feel better soon. Take care...

Well, I think it's time the truth finally comes out

Griz is a Chippendale's dancer ! Hence his profile :

Occupation: "Can't tell you, but trust me, you don't ever want to come in contact with me when I'm working."

I begged him not to dance for this lady, but he insisted ! That's when things got really nasty. She wanted to give him a lapdance, and the back injury shortly followed...

Sorry to blow your cover, Griz, but I felt it was time

Nick

Lets play the "what does Grizzly do for a living game"

Lets look at the clues...
He states that we dont want to be near him while he is working.

If anyone else has any clues post them, together we can solv the mystery and entertain a buddy.

I am going to say he works for Roter Rooter

Sorry to hear about your injury. I guess though Ė not knowing what happened, and considering what we all THINK you do for a living, maybe it could have been worse and we are glad it isnít.

Hopefully you will be able to fully recover and be back on the job, and more importantly enjoying your Porsche.

This site should keep you busy for a little while:

Wish I had a great and heroic story for you guys about saving Rail26 and his crew from the jaws of death, but I friggin' got hurt in a training exercise. The best part was that we were demonstrating dynamic entry techniques to total strangers. All I demonstrated was how to be dynamically removed by ambulance. And this less than an hour after our training staff made a big deal out of introducing us one by one and reading down our resumes. Lovely.

Thanks for all the pictures and websites. Please keep them coming. Laying around blows.

Question. Do all the hotties hang with the import tuner set? Kinda makes you want to run out and buy a Hyundai with a fart muffler.

No - only on TV. Porsches sell themselves. In order to get someone to buy a plastic spoiler for a 115 HP Civic, you need to have an Asian hottie standing next to the car.

I hope you have a speedy recovery. Here are some photos that to entertain you. I took these shots myself (obviously not a pro) but try and guess what kind of car. I took this photo day after it happened. A woman was intoxicated as she left a local bar is San Mateo CA. its a 2 lane rd that turn s sharp right (90 degree), she was speeding and did not turn at all. Her car hit the curb and launched it far enough that she flew over at least 15 feet of large jagged rock and into the bay. She swam to shore walked to a nearby place where she tried to call a tow truck to pull it out. Tow truck driver reported it to the cops where she was arrested for DUI. This are is a common place for wind surfers called Cayote Point.
