    This is getting ridiculous. I'm back in the Hospital again. Temp is spiking to 100.4. Take Tylenol temp come down to 99.1, later in the day its back up. I've had 4 Antibiotics IVs, bunch of blood, no sleep. This Liver issue is getting harder for my wife. She is taking care of me, trying to take business phone calls, giving everyone their work orders. She is at wits end, I see her saying F it.
    I certainly hope this never happens to any of you. Enjoy your holiday weekend.

    Frank I am so sorry to hear that. I'm sure your wife is stressed, trying to run the business and worried about her husband. Give her a little more credit than that, women are a lot stronger than we are most often.

    Sending prayers your way man.

    she is incredible. she is at a breaking point. too many items at home with no help.
    kids don't really care, they are young adults but want to be treated like little kids.
    They won't make a decision on their own. they are afraid to talk to any one, this
    is part of the problem.

    ACK!

    I leave for Viper Days for a week and you come up with more reasons to delay the restoration of the A-100.

    After promising me the first ride.

    Well, you cannot back out on a public promise so GET BETTER DAMMIT.

    Not backing out on the A100. Last proposal got was 300K to go with Viper Parts.
    I'd rather do other things with that type of funds. I was figuring maybe $ 50,000 to
    $ 75,000.00 for a restoration now. Do restoration on the body, new Interior, 340 Motor
    Built, new brakes, suspension update. Finding guys to do the work is what is hard now.

    JonB...You must have been in coginito. I was asking for pics of you all weekend.
    no one ever heard of you.


    PS if Im spending 300K I'm buying a Lemans Ride...

    If anyone knows of a restoration shop please let me know...

    Hello all, sad news to report but it looks as though Frank passed away in November. I thought it was odd that I hadn't heard from or seen him post anywhere recently so I looked around and sadly found this obituary. Sorry to lose a fellow Pennsylvanian who was passionate about Viper and racing. Godspeed Frank.

    Appreciate you posting the news and sad to hear. Frank was a very passionate Viper owner, racer and enthusiast who found alot of pleasure being part of the Viper community. I know many on here had their cars delivered around the Country by Frank. He was very particular with every car he transported, treating them all like they were his own. Tough news, but he fought till the end and he will be sorelymissed.

    Prayers to all the Barba Family.

    We are all better off for knowing Frank. I am sad I did not know his health was declining. I last communicated with him October 20th helping him figure out how to reset his login to renew. WOW, so many great people in our community - Frank was one.


    Rest In Peace, Frank.

    Very sorry to hear of his passing. He was a fun guy with amazing passion for Mopar cars - particularly the Viper. We ran together in the early times of Viper Days. His wife is a beautiful and loving soul. God Bless.

    So sorry to hear this!! I didn't know Frank but he was very passionate and very active in the community. Ironically a buddy of mine sent me a note a week ago saying Franks CC ended up in FL.

    I looked up Cholangicarcinoma, tough cancer to beat. RIP brother!!

    Just been reading back the pages on this thread, very hard to read words from a brother who is no longer with us.
    My deepest condolences to Frank's friends and family.
    A very sad read.

    RIP Frank. Hopefully you're ripping it in the biggest, baddest snake up there.
