At least I don't have to worry about the Richter Scale, or the VE Index.
20 confirmed dead - and I'm sure it'll still climb. That really sucks. If it had been just a little further south, Chuck (Boltzman) and I could be in their situation.

Yea I saw that Tornado Tom, at least you don't have to deal with them yearly like we do and you do the Hurricanes.

We had back to back F5s 2 or 3 years apart that took almost the exact same path. Both within 1/4 mile of where I live

Here is a picture to illustrate either
a)I love my car
b)I have lost my mind
c)All of thee above.

Attachment 18580

Mind you that is ICE and it's around 20°

Sorry the wife got all four of her wisdom teeth removed so I'm playing male nurse. I'll be there on the 16th though.

I think 'C'.

How do the stripes and Shaker hold up to the high pressure sprayer? Also, are you using the soap brush or just the soap solution thru the nozzle?

BTW Daryl, please dispose of the 'sauce' in the trash can and not throw it on the ground. I know you're trying to keep warm, but geez!

Jim, end up getting the Borlas of the FRPP Stingers? Equal performance, but one has more bragging rights.

Good choice on the K&N too. It's compatible with your factory tune and you can always add a custom tune to maximize its potential later on.

Exclamation A Couple Of Questions...

For the Knott's Berry Farm Show, The registration app says no display boards. Does that mean no posters, signs or plaques of any kind? I wanted to bring my new poster I am making. It's only 20"x30"

Also, what category would my car fit into now. It's such a blend of mods. #55 Signature Mustangs or #52 Mustang Coupe? It's becoming a GT-CSS... California Shelby Special.

Bill, that was actually the first time I ever used the High Pressure at the car wash. Generally it is just the low pressure spot free rinse, but since my baby had a week of bad stuff accumulated i had to use the high pressure.
I only used the soap dispensed through the nozzle, I don't think I would ever let the suds brush EVER hit my car, people use those to clean everything they are not supposed to. Hard telling what is on the end of that brush.
I only sprayed the high pressure the length of the stripes, never cross ways. They have weathered just fine so far. Ice, snow, rain and car wash have done nothing to them.

Amazing isn't it, there is a trash can about 5ft from that bottle. Some people are so **** lazy and irresponsible.

I'm bringing my poster with me (as I'm sure Leo too). They may be referring to the massive boards people use with an easel.

My guess is that you fall in Class #52. But, to be sure, shoot them an e-mail at [email protected]

Car looks really clean in that pic. Has the Zaino polish wore off from the weather or does the water still 'roll off'?

Becareful with the HP, read stories of decals blowing off the car!
But, I'm sure you adjust the pressure by keeping the nozzle several feet away from where you're blasting.

----------

Side note, I received my shiny new triple chrome Shaker radio **** yesterday! I'll try and snap a pic later today.

Whew We got lucky on that one Tom. Mother Nature is ****ed off at someone.
Bill and Leo win award for best emoticons.
Hey Tom, I'm gonna get a sport bar and hope to have it in time for the FFW. Are you going? It will be a blast.
I never got an email or anything from Midwest.Should I contact them or just wait?

Yes, we did get lucky.

FFW? What, where, when?? Fantasy of Flight?

You can send an email if you want to Roberta at Midwest ([email protected]), but they were sending them out in the order they were sold initially unless you told them not to.

Duh... Fun Ford Weekend... yes, I'll be there in Orlando. And I'll try to be at Hooters on Friday night for the burn out contest, too (just to watch, though!).
