They aren't going to the game until sometime in November. I'll let you know how they like it.

The Catoctin Mountain Cruise we've gone on for the last few years is this Sunday. If you are interested, let me know and I'll give you the info. Not sure if we are going yet.



Good to hear from ya!



I know, I asked yesterday if he was removing the side stripes, but never got an answer

It was posted in SVTPerformance but it was not the posters cars. The reason it came up is that the race cell bladder on these cars goes out at about 10 years. Some have made it 14 years on their 95Rs but many of teh 2000Rs are starting to have this problem. Without a new bladder from Fuel Safe (the only place to get them) the car is undriveable and dangerous. So basically every 10 years or so that guy is going to have to spend $2,100 per car (current price) to have those fuel cells changed.

So $2,100 x 9 =$18,900 every 10 years or $1,890 a year. Or $157.50 each month just to own those 9 cars. Plus all the other rubber and materials that deteriorate.


One is all I can afford.

if you can afford 9 R's a couple fuel cells isnt going to be an issue

i dont think I could ever have a car and not drive it. Everything I own will be driven. That being said, I dont wanna buy a Ford GT heritage with 10 miles on the clock, just because I'd have to drive it, when someone else could store it.

how do you pull the codes off the odometer? I tried that one time and it didnt work.

Sophia's over 84k now! That's just friggin hard to believe. I bought her 5/29 at 73120! She'll be pushing 100k soon enough. Hopefully by that time however I'll be able to afford a DD, and can do a termy swap, along with some other things I've got in mind that could give 7 a run for her money!

looking at a picture of the R gary posted, I wonder how my car would look spoilerless. I'm thinking of taking it off when I do a full detail, so I can detail it, and get to the trunk lid, 3rd brake light better. you guys see any issues that might make?

someone told me to hold down the reset button and then turn the ignition key to run and hold until you see test appear in window

Some neat stuff to read mostly with gauges and a digital tach and speedometer.

No rhyme or reason that I can see. I know he has at least 2 in the Gulf livery, I snapped this one myself...





He's really secretive and private. An acquaintance of mine did some work at his house and snapped a couple of cell phone pics in the garage and they were stacked 2 high on racks over top of each other in various color combos.

Until they won the NLDS against the Rays, this was the single greatest moment in Texas Rangers history.

Anybody remember this?

Nolan Ryan put a whoopin' on that boy. If you wanted to get your *** kicked Robin, just say so.

Man, I knew Nolan Ryan was feisty, but I don't remember him putting a hurtin on Ventura like that. What year was that?

It said 1993 in the video. I've met Nolan Ryan. He's got a grip like a vise.

The man is a rancher and punches cows for a living after baseball. Well before becoming a partner in the Rangers. The main thing to remember is that you don't f*ck with Nolan Ryan. He is 100% Texan even at 46 he knew exactly what to do and he didn't back down one bit. I loved watching him play back when I actually cared about baseball. He would throw at a man if he had it coming. People feared getting in that batters box against him. Intimidation went along way. Unfortunately for Ventura, Ryan wasn't too old to still kick his ***.
