Yo yo!

Yesterday morinng I went to Artistc Silver Plating> in Signal Hill. Turns out Greg *** the owner does a bunch of work for Chip Foose and the Overhauling gang. He has some cool artwork on his shop walls of some of the Overhauling builds (Pics coming). I'm having my fuel rails polished, Greg did a sample polish and I was amazed how they transformed BLING! I though about chrome but he said it maybe risky and that the injectors could get contaminated.

Greg has this Tunnel Ram motor in his 67 Shelby GT Coupe.






I need to have a parts sale like Ray!

Guys, I found something perfect for your rail trip...

Railroad Spike Bottle Opener

Add a bit of rustic old-west flair to your home bar with the Railroad Spike Bottle Opener ($19). Hand-forged at 2,400 Fahrenheit from old, reclaimed railroad spikes, each opener is slightly different, but shares the same twisted design and bottle opening claw, with a thin coating of beeswax offering a protective, slightly colored finish.

What was the truck you were looking for? How about a 2001 Ford F250 Super Duty with a 5.4L gas engine. Only thing is its got 160,000 miles and is a crew cab 4x4.

68-75 F250. Preferably with a 390/C6(big plus for a 429 or 460 with a C6), Power Steering, Power Disc Brakes, AC. 4x4 is OK, but 2WD is better, less rotating mass and as get-in-and-drive as possible. The biggie, the reason for the specific years, is I don't want to ever worry about smog and have something that I can work on without any computer crap

I want to make it my DD so the car gets a breather. Probably not the best DD ever, but it will do what I want it to do and it will probably outlast the rest of the cars on the road.

I don't know that I've ever seen a 68-75 F250. I'm sure I did and didn't notice it. My dad had a '78 back in the day. I remember we had a 75 LeSabre land yacht with a 454. But the 454's were gutted for HP by those years.

This month on the 24th, the Tacomobile will be 4 years old. Talk about time flying!

Is mine the oldest one here?

LOL!

Mine will be 3 next month. March 15th I believe... If I would have held onto my 2005 V-6, it would have been 4 on Sunday, as I bought it on Valentine's day! I was single at the time and thought of no better gift to myself than a brand new 2005 Mustang...

No-way.... It's WAY too small. Big Block or GTFO

Well, since you had it coming and no one is exempt from POTR hazing...

I found a picture of your date from that evening
