  1. The Z man is back !!! Things are looking up guys...
  2. Exactly where the phrase "Speed Kills" came from. Along the same lines...
  3. Great write-up but quite dated. The tech and machining have advanced well beyond what is written here. Simply amazing machines... This is a great video, though at 2012 it's outdated as well.

  5. Welcome Drew !! Glad you found us. Re-capping the 35 should not prove to be too difficult. Lots of threads and info available here. Go ahead and add a belt kit and a good cleaning / re-lubricating for that CD player. The belts have certainly turned to goo or dried up. Good news is they are easily replaced and are cheap - look on ebay for people selling kits. As far as not being "high end", if it sounds good to you, it's high end to your ears - and that is what matters.
  6. Only $40,000 standing between you and audio nirvana !!! https://www.siltechcables.com/products/cable-type/speaker-cables/crown-prince/
  7. To Mr. Dibble... Thanks for everything !!!
  8. I was actually stunned at the sticker prices of trucks when I started looking in 2015. I had my faithful 2004 Lightning that was approaching 170,000 miles. I wanted a 4WD truck I could use for hunting and such but was not ready to part with $60,000+ for a truck. A friend of mine works for the Ford dealer closest to my house (25 minutes or so) and I had put him on the lookout for a used SuperCrew. He called me one Friday and said I better hurry up and get down there because it wouldn't last long. I drove down and took it home for the weekend. I knew on the drive home I was going to buy that truck. It had 18,000 miles on it, local guy traded for a SuperDuty. 2015 F150 Lariat Sport. 4WD, 5.0L Coyote V-8, keyless entry, pushbutton start, heavy duty towing package, FX4 Off Road package, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Automatic Park Assist, LED headlights, blind spot monitoring system, hill descent control, heated / cooled front seats and heated rear seats, electric power steering, 6 speed tranny, 3.73 gears, 20" aluminum wheels, tailgate step, Sony premium sound, auto high beams, auto wipers, collision avoidance, rear camera, Remote Access, power running boards, twin panel moon roof, 36 gallon fuel tank, power telescoping / folding tow mirrors. I added Firestone air bags for leveling when towing. It gets 20 MPG on the Interstate, 17 around town. Unbelievably comfortable and quiet, drives like a dream. GIGANTIC interior - 5 adults of any height can sit in any seat with comfort. One of the few vehicles to have a 5 star NHTSA crash rating for all sides. Aluminum body (no rust !!!). All of that to say that the tech available in today's vehicles is astounding. My last purchase was in 2004 so things had changed quite a bit by the time I bought this one. And when I want to have fun I ride my 2016 Suzuki Bandit 1250 SA - ABS. 145 HP, 90 lb-ft of torque, 45 MPG if you are trying to get good MPG. Fuel injected, heated grips, Corbin seat, Givi luggage. Absolute blast to ride - ridiculous power on tap. It pulls like a freight train. On the Tail Of The Dragon with the luggage, giving her a test ride.
  9. Stupid-ass thing just throws the file in as an attachment.
  10. How do you embed the audio with the player ?
  11. He's a real class act... 🙄
  12. In with 139. Thanks for a great Karma Barry !!!!
  13. Fantastic Karma Ken !!! Not in as I have too many CDs as it is...
  14. Another typical TN sunrise... "Traffic jam" in my back yard... Sunset on the lake... A trespasser !!! Another trespasser !!! The "grocery store". Yeah, I love this "backwards" place I call home....
  15. The 6.0L Powerstroke Mark had trouble with was a true diesel - made by International Harvester. The issues with it are well known and, actually, easily resolved. After the fixes are installed the engine is capable of 350,000 miles or more quite easily. Shame on Ford for not standing up for their customers and just giving in to IH - they lost a lot of customers with that stupid decision.
  16. "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all." - My Mom, who lives by those words much better than I do. "Life is like a roll of toilet paper - the closer to the end you get, the faster it goes." - My good friend and neighbor Steve. "Always date women with small hands - it makes your d!@# look bigger." - Security guy at a Costco I worked at a long time ago. "Don't f#%$ the help - it makes them lazy." - The General Manager at my first engineering job, referring to a very hot young lady in the office who didn't do much work there.
  17. FWIW - It's way easier to pull the cab to do head gasket work on ANY diesel engine truck - including your Chevy. 🙂 All cars suck and all cars are great - it just depends who you talk to.
  18. And it all happened by accident !!! 🙄
