  1. I remember working at my family’s Dodge dealership washing cars as a young teen with new Daytonas, Caravans, Shelby Chargers..... Praying that the talks about Chrysler buying Lamborghini would come true. And then making absurd promises to my God if Chrysler would build the Viper. While Tom Gale and Maximum Bob Lutz ultimately made the Viper happen, it never would have come close without Iacocca. RIP Lido Anthony Iaccoca And thank you.
  2. Thanks very much for the legwork, sir. I also learned a ton about digital to analog processing here at Carversite, the weakest link in my system at the time. This does beg the question, what streams /stores the best resolution digital and what can be some restrictions (including even network / home WiFi routers etc.) I will also add this to my followed threads. Thanks again.
  3. So my first ‘mediation conference ‘ is in two days. While there are no guns involved ....my wife lied to an Ottawa County (MI) circuit court judge and obtained a restraining order ‘ex parte’ thereby keeping me from every bit of my personal property (we were married when I was almost 40) so not only is my entire audio rig (personal property) at our marital home, so is every motorcycle, Sea Doo, road bike, trailers, etc etc etc that I owned way before we were married. She has total control of all of it. Even though in Michigan it’s still mine. So far I’ve been able to get my clothes. In four months. The courts in Ottawa MI really don’t listen to facts. They just blindly believe everything she wrote down. She has lied and manipulated them for years. Sorry for the hijack, Mark, but this ones a bit personal.
  4. Congrats Brian!!! looking forward to a thorough evaluation. Nice work as always Mark..... 😎
  5. The Isle of Mann TT race is absolutely nuts. There is a fatality almost yearly. I found this highlight reel on Facebook. Hang on tight
  6. “A confidential internal report by Universal the year following the fire estimated 500,000 song titles were lost.” original master recordings. Damn.
  7. This is exactly it. You feel me? Ya know what I’m sayin’? (Ynmschain’?)
  8. I be like... You be like.... He be like.... She be like..... They be like.... Conjugations of the verb ‘to be like’ Isnt it easier to use ‘to be’ I am You are He is They are derp
  9. Yeh I finally found a guy who is excellent. In and out quick. Almost zero pain. A good dentist is one you put on your Christmas card list. Thanks again guys, Dom, Rich, Brian, Mike, King, all you guys. And Charlie for the thread!! 🙏
  10. Hey you guys. Thanks a lot! I appreciate it. I had some dental work done so I’ve been out a day or two. Yep. Treated my self to some torture on my birthday. I didn’t see this on the fp until just now. 🤙
  11. Absolutely. Incredible. That looks fantastic. Wow. The generosity from fellow Carversite members once again shows no bounds. Beautiful work Rockster..... Submit this to Featured Systems. The elegance and simplicity deserves it a spot there.
  12. Indeed. Current Top Fuel ‘Hemi’ blocks share cylinder ‘bore center-to-center’ measurement, and ‘deck height’ (bottom of block to top of deck-minus head-) with the Gen II Chrysler block. Valvetrain actuation is almost identical. Although proprietary machining, those two primary block measurements give tribute to how good the original design was.
  13. Crap, Rich. I got rid of a v-rated Goodyear on my Shelby Charger for a BFG Comp TA ZR. It’s now been sitting in my garage stationary for about 6-7 years. Ya think you had flat spots? I was praying it wouldn’t be the case. We’ll see this spring. If this frickin snow ever stops.
  14. Yep. The rest of that post had ‘ If a blown Vette crossed the starting line at 200 mph at the same time a TF car hit the throttle, The fueler would easily pass it by the 1/4 mile mark (top end finish line). Today’s TF machines are estimated to be producing 11,000 horsepower. Estimated because no dyno on earth could handle it. Don Schumacher racing machines their own block from a 780 lb block of billett aluminum. Down to 140 lb engine block. Those pictures you see launching all blurry? Ive been to many NHRA races. During a full Top Fuel launch the overpressure in the air causes the liquid in your eyeballs to vibrate so violently that is hard to focus on the car until it is well past you. I remember watching the Chi Town Hustler back in the late ‘80s. With an iron block Hemi that car produced almost 3000 horspower and ran 265 in the quarter.
