oilleaker1: At least it wasn't a Boss 429 Mustang. I'd help kick on that . ;) Oct 17, 2021 9:06:04 GMT -5
binthere: Yeah, I had a 65 Malibu SS that I sold to buy a brand new CJ6!! Kicked my butt ever since. >:D Oct 17, 2021 10:34:31 GMT -5
oilleaker1: Or a Silver '65 Corvette roadster with new top, 327, for 2700.00. I was 17 and wanted it. Couldn't afford it. :'( Oct 17, 2021 12:06:01 GMT -5
cline48: Mike, I will tell dad I sold his car!! Oct 17, 2021 17:36:38 GMT -5
Scoutpilot: Good night dreamers. Oct 17, 2021 18:13:48 GMT -5
Lee: You guys can have your cars, I’ll take an MA, and do the Morrison Jeep Trail with it 😂 Oct 17, 2021 21:40:52 GMT -5
m38mike: Thanks Shack! Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!!! Don't pinch me yet, let me keep dreaming. Oct 18, 2021 2:06:21 GMT -5
Scoutpilot: Let's have some coffee. Oct 18, 2021 4:05:53 GMT -5
oilleaker1: Lee, you can have both and still have fun. I'll bet a run in a D type Jag would get your interest. Oct 18, 2021 5:09:14 GMT -5
Lee: Jag 😬 wil the wiring harness start on fire 🔥😮 Oct 18, 2021 7:00:50 GMT -5
grumpy: I have owned LBC’s never had a problem with Lucas electrics, they’re just like any electrical system they work fine until you let the smoke out! I do have trouble with the weather forecast another 4-8 inches of white rain tonight & tomorrow >:D Oct 18, 2021 7:13:30 GMT -5
FLTFNDR: Lee, If Louie is still good, please wish him a Happy Birthday for me! Oct 18, 2021 7:55:05 GMT -5
oilleaker1: Grumpy, 2-4 here. Lucas wiring------buy a jar of smoke. Problem solved. Oct 18, 2021 8:17:48 GMT -5
Lee: Well do John, he’s doing well for 90yo 👍🏽 Oct 18, 2021 9:10:33 GMT -5
64cj5: Gota ship calves to morrow sure don't need any wet stuff. Oct 18, 2021 10:02:13 GMT -5
brucew: You can have all your Mustangs, I’ll settle for being a part of the ‘73 Z28 restoration project that’s going on in my garage right now. And I’d love to see some progress on my ‘64 El Camino. I bought the EC in ‘69 and the Z in ‘76, and still got ‘em. Oct 18, 2021 12:36:00 GMT -5
brucew: Don’t know about a Jag, but I’d sure like to have an MG TC. They may not be fast, but they are the coolest looking little Brits ever made. Oct 18, 2021 12:38:02 GMT -5
muley: '49 Dodge 1/2ton "pilot house", my HS auto shop project in '68, sold in '98 when we moved from AZ to ID.. no room in the trailers. :'( Oct 18, 2021 13:31:03 GMT -5
cline48: I will just stick with a 2a. The other don’t matter to me. Oct 18, 2021 14:24:27 GMT -5
oilleaker1: They all had good models. One brand only for life means a closed mind. Give yourself a little variety. Sell the junk, keep the gold. Oct 18, 2021 14:52:14 GMT -5
