They gave you money to buy a Ford?

 

The phrase "Nothing works like a Chevy truck" reminds me of a joke.

 

A Texan was speaking to an immigrant from eastern Europe, bragging about his wealth.  "I could drive all day and not get from one end of my ranch to the other!"

The other man smiled in comiserration and replied,  "Yes, back home I used to have a car that slow too."

That makes me so angry. I had to do similar things at the pump shop I was at to air test pumps. A bin of fittings to assemble to test a pump, it would take an hour to find the right combination and get it air tight. Then you'd have to disassemble it for the next pump. They paid me for an hours work every time instead of just making the proper fitting from plugs.

Yeah, a plug, a drill, and a 1/4-NPT tap, and you're done.

Or, hell, I have seen plugs with tapped holes in them.

It's almost December and my maples are finally showing their color. It was 72 today here north of Athens Ga. Crazy. I planted 56 Loblolly pine seedlings this past spring and they are still growing - one is 80" tall! It was 24" this spring (30 of them are Super Loblolly hyybrids).

Can you imagine what these cars would be worth today??  A 20K investment back then would be a fortune today, but then I guess 20K was a fortune back then too.

Right chassis, wrong motor. If I had to do it all again I'd go turbo k series (if I wanted power to weight and aftermarket support)or 2gr (if I wanted soul and brand loyalty). Lol, I wouldn't even put a Subaru motor in a Subaru.
