Re: Price of cars down, price of parts up

Many decades ago Mom would send me out the door, and tell me to go find a Sky Hook,

Re: OT June 6

My dad built planes. Two of my uncles served in the Pacific. Another made it into the DDay invasion. They have all left now. Each one made a big mark during the rest of their lives.

Re: 1952 ford car clutch install

Re: New toy....

i couldn't pick any color neater... Every model from that year can captivate me.

Good for you. You the man.
