    Thank you to everyone that has sent well wishes and private emails. It means a lot.

    Sounds like you just need some RESTORATION to OE Like most of your past cars

    Yes I need Restored that is why I am hoping I can find an Angel to give me a sliver of their liver.
    I was taken back to the hospital on Saturday and just got out a few hours ago being released.
    I had to go in because the doctors missed fluid in my stomach area and my stomach was finally
    drained the discovered I had some poisons going into my kidneys, so instead of treating my liver
    they started treating my Kidney. I passed all the testes this morning and afternoon. I can not offer money for
    a part of someones liver, I just want to live...AS the doctors have been telling me that I look better than how I feel.

    Again I'm in the hospital. Seems as though I was fine for 2 Weeks but then Saturday my Belly started
    hurting again. About 3am I had my wife take me to the ER. Again they have found bacteria in my blood.
    This time it is not affecting my Kidneys. I won't be released until Friday this week. I have my friend who
    has told me his to oldest Girls have been doing testing to see if they are compatible with my system. One of them
    their last test day is July 7. I am hoping that it is a match.

    I have been placed on antibiotics thru a drip system. The doctor of Infectionus Disease told me that I will most likely develop
    stomach pain & bacteria growth until I get a transplant. After i get out on Friday this week I will be on an antibiotic
    for the duration of my life or until I receive a Sliver of the Liver.

    I have had some people step up to inquire about my Comp Coupe, Trailer and Freight Liner Sport Chassis. All proceeds will be gong
    to help pay for my medical bills. If you need Gen 1 Parts or Comp Coupe Gen 3 parts let me know. I currently have a motor & Transmission
    available.

    Frank I hope you are able to overcome this and get better, but I also hope you don’t do to others in the Viper community what you did to me when we negotiated a deal on your 96 GTS. I only mention this because I see you are selling cars and parts again and it would be unfortunate and very unfair of you to do to others, especially other Viper people what you did to me. Please consider others in your decision making and understand your actions also affect them. Again, best of luck to you and your recovery.

    Getting a 'sliver' is usually a pain in the finger..........

    Praying your sliver comes soon, and GOD BLESS your friend and his girls......

    Keep DRIVING HARD Frank

    I am truly sorry about that. Yes I am selling cars and parts. My wife is in charge of the ads, prices, everything Viper and old cars. I do not make the financial decisions anymore I've learned. My wife is my caretaker and has my
    best interest at heart. So I am inclined to listen to her a lot more. She's sold my Freightliner Sport Chassis, Super Hauler Stacker Trailer, and my Race Car.

    If your like to submit a bid again privately I will take to her and let her decide. Your not the only one that I have upset. I started canceling transports due to the way I felt and ultimately held people up on delivery of their Viper(s)
    Making up stories why I could not do the Transport. I hope that no one ever has to go thru life needing a Liver it does things to your head that you don't even understand. i've apologized to each and every one of them. I fact one started
    this thread. I am thankful that no one has held a grudge of any type


    I do have at this time a very good friend whose daughters want to help me. They are going thru testing now to see if we are compatible. I hate to tear up but every time I think of what they will do for me I can Cry..

    I might have found 2 Angels to help me with a Transplant. My friend that I went to High School with heard about my Liver Issues.
    2 of his daughters have stepped up to the plate to go thru testing to see if I am compatible with their Liver. Today one of his daughters
    went to UPENN togo thru final testing. The other daughter is finishing up her paperwork for University of Maryland. She will go thru the
    same testing as her sister. My fingers are crossed.

    What great news Frank, and I am sure there are many prayers being sent your way from your friends and fellow Viper owners. Thanks for keeping us updated during your struggle.
    Retired and time to get back on track ---literally!

    Today was a bit of a let down. The young lady that was going to donate part of her Liver to me, can not go thru the surgery,
    not because she wasn't a match, it was because her Liver was just too small. Off the find another person. It's just a numbers
    game? Thanks for everyone's well wishes..

    Well been gone since July 19th? I received a call from one of my Liver Doctors Monday AM. Later that night I receive a call from the Liver Surgeon at UMM. Told me to be ready Tuesday AM to come to Baltimore. Waited in the Lobby for 8 Hours, got a call the Liver is yours. Jumping up and down happy I was admitted within 15 minutes I was in the OR. I have a new Liver. I'm going to Live and not die. I was in OR for 12 Hours got me pumpinging blood again and I'm here in Baltimore Recoopering. Thank you Ron for putting this Thread together for me. I will be helping the Viper Community agin with Transport services just as soon as my DR.'s say its ok to drive I'm thinning Mid 2022. Thank you all for the prayers. Now I can have my 65 Dodge A100 Truck Restored or Restomoded, and see into completion. Hope to see everyone soon.

    Happy to hear, Frank. Speedy recovery to you.
    A few words of CAUTION to those who think
    a VIPER looks MEAN, ARROGANT and HOSTILE...
    CUT OUT THE FLATTERY!
