Re: Happiness Is.....

Re: Flat Black Friday...

Re: Truck based woody

I have dual horns about 20" long mounted to the passenger side of the engine. I have a typical flathead era starter solenoid as a horn relay. As we know, the solenoid is activated when the small...

Re: Great Race Bishop June 2019

Re: tar paper seal F1

Tar paper was always available in 15 lb, 30 lb, 90 lb etc. 90 being the thickest. On a hot summer day 90 should conform to just about anything. Should make excellent engine gaskets as well. Sometimes...

Re: Can It Be - The Jailbar King Is Downsizing?

Sold it today, full price. I guess I made about 60 cents an hour, as I had about 4 grand total into it. Oh well, try that with fishing, golf or watching sports on TV for your weekend. Can't get...

Re: Can It Be - The Jailbar King Is Downsizing?

Once it gets off the island, which is a free ferry ride (all tickets are round trip), it's about 1 1/2 hours to Seattle. Well, 3 hours on it's own wheels. Big trucks are a tough sell in any market,...
