Good thing is I already filed my glass claim with Geico and it should be fixed today with no $$ out of my pocket.
That sucks Leo. I hate aftermarket glass, the upper tinting and black dot surround is never the same unless you get OEM. Mine faded after a couple of years, FYI.

Look for iPhone updates Saturday.
Been going to Oak Glen with the family every year for as long as I can remember. It's a beautiful area. Occasionally I see a vette club there, be cool to see some stangs there. Where/when you guys meeting up?

Well, it was supposed to be this Saturday, but not getting any confirmations from others besides Leo.

I've been there once last year, the place is great!

Not only are stock batteries taking a dump, even Jed's Red Top goes dead if it's not on the Tender.

Mine too.

What is it on these cars that's drawing current while it's off? I purposely don't arm the alarm when its in the garage anymore. I've removed all the factory Shaker amps and useless crap.

Anyway. 2 weeks wihtout driving and I'll guarantee its dead.

I got this last week at Sam's to help me when one of my cars won't start up. The Bronco sits for months at a time. I've really got to get working on it.

I never had that problem with my 06. I had the car for almost 3.5 years including a 700wrms audio system and still had the factory battery. It never died, never even cranked slow.

Lord forgive me for I am the one that sinned I have been a week without driving yes my Mustang I know, but when I got in a week after the red top fired up just fine. Thank you for that iwill continue to wash it and keep her clean she likes that.
I couldn't belive that it would be if anything that the alarm could draw that enough power to suck it dry, so please show us an answer to help my friends to enjoy thier Mustangs too ! Thank-You for listening.

Well that's nice. Maybe you should have sold me the battery too.

Sorry was just giving an example of my experience. I know Scott's battery failed after like three years, and after researching a ton he decided to replace it with (gasp) another stocker and it's still going strong after a while.


Besides, if I sold you my stock battery it probably woulda went dead from waiting so long for you to get around to installing it. LOL!

Cool list Ray. I looked up all the ones local to Torrance and they look like classic rods and old farts.

George - Good luck!

Leo - That sucks! Cool that it's getting fixed so quickly though!

I drove my Mustang on Sunday, the first time in 2 weeks... Man, I don't know how you guys do it, not driving it all the time, I am going insane! I LOVE driving my car, and while it's great that it's nice and cozy in the garage, I really miss driving it daily!

The only problem I had was that it seemed a little shaky for the first like 10 miles, but then mellowed out... But the battery worked just fine!

HD Web Services

I was working on the Shelby - Santa Monica video last night and I decided to do some research on HD Web services. I like YouTube but chances are it's going to block the music tracks that I used, BASTARDS! Check out this link to some alternate HD web services reviewed by CNET...>

Hummm yezzzzzz!

FYI...I feel a Knott's, Pinks run Wednesday night!

Battery Tender mine's charging right now!

Mustang glass seems poor quality from the get go. Mine has all kinds of pits. My Toyota glass is much harder and looks better even at 9 years old WTF?

Hey I forgot to mention yesterday I was walking through our lobby at CPK and standing by the reception desk was Steve Garvey. I said "Hi Steve..(like I know him) and he said "doing great how are you?" Inside I was laughing cuz he probably doesn't know me from Adam! Steve and the founders of CPK go way back when CPK opened their first restaurant in Bev-Hills.
