That looks alot like the KB S2. But the bottom line is with what I have I can already exceed the safe limit of the motor. So getting one of these would still be more of a cosmetic upgrade rather than the intended performance. The real logical step is forged internals, but in all reality I don't want to dump more $ in the stang. I want a loaded DD.

I can get mine polished so I could have bling with no tuning! I must say that's WIN WIN!

Very strange thing happened today. One of Marianne's sisters was doing some research about their dad (Claude Brown) who was an engineer and RC airplane designer/builder. She ran across this archive of photos from the 60's that blew me away when I saw the captions. There he was with two guys with my family last name (and my first name!). So my wife's father knew a man with my name 45 years ago, wow! I wonder if there are any relations?

http://library.bbhc.org/cdm4/item_vi...ISOBOX=1&REC=4



And just on a side note... Marianne's uncle Scott was a test pilot and designer for the X-15 rocket in the 50's and was the first person to travel twice the speed of sound. He competed against Chuck Yeager testing rocket powered aircraft. What a history! He would jump into his Cessna and fly all over the country... in his 80's! I got to meet him once before he died in an aircraft crash.

What? Has Jed finally hit his limits in modding the Roush?

+1 on retiring the Highlander for a loaded DD.. think about it, it's where you spend most of your driving time at.

When I was doing flood & fire stuff I ran across a lady who lives here & I swear her home was a shrine for her hubby that passed away before I was in the home , but he was on the Avro Areo as one of the pilots and designer I think? she still lives here.

Well, it looks like I just bought a DD. A 1968 F250 2WD. It's about 1800 bucks and pretty **** clean. I'll be the second owner. I'll post pics up later.

Met one of the original Ghostbusters today, Dan Aykroyd.

Pam, Chris, and I went to BevMo in Manhattan Beach for a bottle signing. Place was packed!

Dan was very cool and accomodated everyone that brought non-bottles to sign.. no quantity! People were bringing pictures, posters, toys, xbox games, you name it.. one guy even brought a guitar!

I bought his bottle of Cabernet and Skull Head Vodka.

I accidentally smeared the sig on the Cabernet before the Sharpie dried! Grr!!!
So, I'm going to crack that baby open tonite for a little wine tasting.

The skull sig is perfect, so that'll remain untouched.

Chris even got his iPhone cover signed.

Parking reserved for him, but he parked in the back last minute.








Both my bottles!!




Chris' iPhone
