Re: What would you rather have? Pickup or Panel?

I know that you are a big guy, 6 foot plus and nearly 300 if I remember correctly. There is no way a man your size is going to be comfortable in a pick up truck cab. Plus I am biased since I have a...

Re: Why No One Will Buy My Parts

Don't take it personal, the economy is far worse than any are letting on to. My operations are down about 70% from 2007. This has caused me to moth ball my next project which would have been a 26 hot...

Re: My enclose car trailer hard on tires?

Put the car in there, roll the trailer forward and check the angle of the rim exterior with a digital level or heck just a bubble on a stick. Should be level, if not you bent your axles.

Unfortunately we have really unique trucks Gary. Someone has to fall in love with them.

Re: Color Photography from the 1930\'s and 40\'s

I love those pictures.

I found myself looking at the sky in all of them.

Re: Bad Buyer/Seller List Like the HAMB

There's a couple on here too, I got stiffed a few times on small items here.
