    The Irony

    LOL! Yeh I know it's what all 'bored' members do ...... I was just suggesting it might save the thread from being ended from too much arguing. 'Cause you and I both know 'board' members do a lot of that too !!! ;)(y)(y)(y)

    The Irony

    There has been several excellent comments made here as well as several outrageous ones ............. how 'bout we all wait till all the answers are available and then see how it all falls out. That way we can all pretty much agree on the issues, problems, reasons, and even faults. Just sayin'...

    For FORD owners that don't know

    Yeh, I agree. I was just talking in general, there are always certain specific issues in all brands. It's just a matter of seeing how many are still on the road compared to how many sold over any particular time period usually will be a relatively good indicator.

    Bob, I'm not certain but I believe most all GM 1500 (not sure about the heavier ones) trucks have been supplied with aluminum drive shafts since about 1999 or so. No paint needed. I can only guess it was an effort to reduce weight .....? And generally speaking you're pretty close to how it all...

    The e-mail was too late!

    Hey y'all, just got another email from Ammunition Depot with that ad of a 200 ct 124gr TMJ 9mm ammo for $84.99 w/free shipping for me. Don't know if the free ship is for everybody, but likely so. Anyway it looks like a bargain for some of us. 'US Cartridge' 124gr TMJ, brass and brand new ammo...

    Truth is they're none any better than the care they get. They're typically only as good as the man who takes care of them. (y)(y)(y)

    For FORD owners that don't know

    Yeh, I really liked them too. Somehow it happened that I had a couple of Coupe 4 spds and 1 Van. Drove the heck out of both cars but never put the Van on the road. It didn't need much, but I was really busy about that time and also was already driving a Chevy front engine SWB custom van. I...

    A slight correction to my post #44 above ............ while it's true I did build a 1962-3 Corvair into a "Fascar" limited late model stock car, it was not with using the Corvair engine/drive train. If I left it to appear that way I apologize. It was only the Corvair body that was used for the...

    Should You Reload Your Own Ammo?

    Just casting those .22 cal bullets would be a 'put-off' to me in reloading them. Way back when we were playing with them it only involved pulling the bullet, then experimenting with different powder charges, then re-seating the original bullet. I'm sorry, but what these guys are doing is...

    A Question to Ponder on Miscreant Control

    Mr HaysGreener said this: "if a convicted felon uses a gun, the law should have the teeth to put him where he will never see the light of day. That should be the basis of firearms disability laws"..... I couldn't agree more. And I would even expand on it a tad .... If anyone, convicted felon or...

    A Question to Ponder on Miscreant Control

    benstt, let me expand just a little on what you say here: In years past when teaching the state's Hunter Safety program to folks, one of the things I learned is that there are 3 kinds of people we need/would like to talk to. Obviously the pro gun folks are already on our side and are typically...

    The e-mail was too late!

    I just got an email from Ammunition Depot advertising US Cartridge 9mm 124 Grain TMJ (200 ct) for $84 iirc. By the time I saw it and got to the site, it said "Out of Stock". What the hell is a man to do? About .42 round is the best by far I've seen in a while!!!

    For FORD owners that don't know

    Most of the time you can use the door jamb numbers as an absolute minimum pressure, but that's all they're good for usually. Those who like the really cushy, soft ride like the softer compound tires and lower pressures, and some high performance drivers/vehicles like the softer compounds for the...

    For FORD owners that don't know

    Undoubtedly if you have the correct info based on your particular use/need, the tire manufacturer charts is by far your best best and the only accurate info for that tire. Your truck may or may not ride quite as smooth or soft as the manufacturer's recommendations, but your tires will wear much...

    Should You Reload Your Own Ammo?

    Me too generally, and haven't even thought about it for many, many years ...... but way back in about mid-early 80's to late 90's I shot a whole lot of NRA Hunter's Pistol silhouette competitions around the south east. That was all center fire stuff, sometimes probably a couple thousand rounds a...

    For FORD owners that don't know

    Hey Anni, I wasn't referring to your situation at all ..... in fact I absolutely agree you should have gotten better wear than that or at least a better response/result. I was just talking 'tires' in general and for general information. I certainly meant on offense towards you man! Sorry if it...

    For FORD owners that don't know

    While it's true car dealers/manufacturers do buy tires in volume, they are purchased on a 'Just in Time' inventory plan and thus usually are not more than 18 mos old when sold on the new vehicle, so age is rarely a problem. Occasionally they might sit a little longer than that, but not the norm...
