Nothing happening here in Cuba. Just sitting here, wishing death upon my detainees and wondering if that hurricane is going to cause any issues here

Sucks to be them

Guess it sucks being in a third-world country, huh? If they get hit real hard, Gitmo will get swamped with people again, since we're the jump-off point for aid to Haiti.

So Mike your taking "down" fence.. hmm... Just as hard.. guessing your going to give those gloves a work out... One strand at a time... your saving it right.. start at the bottom.. gets easier as you go up.. and just coil away.. when your done those posts are a snap unless you have Tpost.. hoping this is mostly mesquite

I really think they're more uncomfortable than a ballistic vest. Maybe it's just the humidity.

only Runs or Ebear would say strangely provacative about that.. and in either event it really scares us half normal types dave...

Yeah we had the stab vest to.. Hated them.. I changed some procedures so staff only had to wear them when feeding and escorting.. Thats the only time they were worn anyway..

ok no past war stories.. ... yeah i remember one time back in 1958... sheesh

That makes sense, greg

But ours are the ones that go under the uniform tops, so I guess it makes sense to keep them on in case we have to respond quickly to a self-harm incident or something we wouldn't have time to throw them on for, but it still sucks.

Past war stories are fine. Gives you old farts a reason to stick around. Someone's gotta remind us younger guys of how easy we have it.

Maybe not all.. That might not be fair, but i know i sure had it easier than my dad.. so many things we take for granted today.. Sheesh i remember when nobody had A/C in cars..

You guys remember those window unit things they had.. tube tires.. 6 volt generators and.. ok guess im on a roll.. and im exagerating.. all of our cars (except one old chevy Pop drove) were 12 volt.. but sure remember not having A/C and generators... That was so cool.. you could open a hood and understand EVERYTHING.. for you young guys.. im telling you fact.. Thier wasn't a part on anyones car that you didn't understand.. Some things might have been a little more complicated (carbs, elec. system) but you knew what it was..

i think anyway.. Back then (sliding into geezer talk REAL fast guys..throw me a line here) they would hold you back if you didn't get good enough grades.. i remember being REAL afraid a couple of times.. They would actually say on the bottom of the report card..hand written from teacher.. This Student is passed to next grade of something like that..

Been a while!! Dad had an 1949 chevy pickup 3/4 ton, hot water 6, battery on the passenger side under the floorboard!! Just like you said. A/C??? what's that?? Wing windows, side scoops, and the air scoop at the bottom of the windshield!!! Remember of opening it up after in had been closed all winter!! when you opened it all the dust blew out from under the dash and off the floor!!!. Haaaa yea, there was "Granny Gear" The Tourque!!! And the Starter on the floor, Then the 1952 chevy pickup!!! Yea, it it was great!! 3 years newer!!! With all the same luxury's, as the 49!!!

Yes Sir,
I sure remember the days when an extra set of points, condenser, belt , roll of tape, some water & if you were a real stickler an extra coil all stuffed in a little box in the huge trunk & you had 99.99% of the road side breakdowns covered. just pull out your trusty little tool kit, go to to work & BAM, back on the road. Now days, don't even look, don't even try to figure it out, just call a tow truck & have deep pockets. Yep, the good old days, Dwell meters & timing lights I miss em!!!!

Yea, Hellsakes I forgot about that!! We have forgotten more than the kids working on old cars will ever know. Its not any of their fault. The book are gone now, pfiche(fish) film is gone.
I think I have a book on the Turbo-Glide transmissions late40's. Some where I should have a blue Bible
Motor??? somethi'n. Blue Bible is what we called it, The Garage would get a new one each year, on each ford and Mercury style.
I worked for Ford Lincoln Mercury, in the late 1960's.
We recieved a shipment of Mustangs. And one was upolstered with Denium fabric, just like the Blue Jeans!!! If we used the word 'Gay' back then, it would have been a gay car.
I made a smart ass remark about the 6 cyl. engine. Then a guy from Phoenix drove in the shop. He was here for the summer(7600 ft. elevation) had the jets changed. The engine was 427ci, I think The engine in this car filled the cavity!!! Couldnt change the plugs like a regular auto. A lot different than the 6's and 289's we had gotten in!!
I type(talk) too damn much!!

CW.. think i saw you had one...5 leter.. Thats the 300 ci big 6 from ford, and man that thing is (IMHO) of course the best gas engine going.. you can work on it.. least the old none FI ones.. and i bought an F150 just for this engine.. i had a couple of them before.. and the last year for this baby was in 96... I know this as an absolute, as i bought a fleet one because they were discontinuing it and going with the V6.. I have no info on this one, sure its good, but wanted the big straight 6, and got a beauty.. That copper color Ford had in the mid 90's .. ok i wanted a striped fleet vehicle.. only thing i wanted was fabric seats.. AZ.. obviously no vinal..

So i find a striped perfect fleet 5 spd.. beauty.. short bed which was ok.. not one option.. had metal roof so you could stick a magnet to it for gas reciepts..perfect.. BUT.. dummy didn't check the rear end ratio.. Normal fleet trucks have high (low numeric) rear ends.. Not this puppy, had like a 4.10 or what ever Fords low rear end is.. Little sucker was a screamer.. Telling you that big six had torque anyway.. With that light short bed i could spin some rubber.. man it was quick.. But think it was turning like 3K at 60.. and .. REAL bad gas milage.. Not just that, i knew it would be hard on the engine.. and really wanted a keeper.. man i can't say anything about TF's long posts huh...

No better engine ever made, the little 200 was a great little piece also. Hell, so was the 225 slant 6, once you got over the odd look & got it through your head that oil changes were the next thing to god, strong little engine.

Nope... didn't have her very long at all..Traded.. I could have changed out the rear end.. OK.. I should have to be honest, as it was just a great truck out side of the rear end.. What happened is i got such a great deal i didn't feel bad about trading.. sure be nice to have now tho...

Oldest car I've ever owned was a 1980 Chrysler Lebaron. Then again, I wasn't much of a gearhead until I was forced into it by becoming a Ford owner. Still got a lot to learn and starting out on a turbodiesel has been an ongoing lesson in pain for the knuckles, elbows, and bank account. You know it's gonna be bad when cheap prices for reman OEM fuel injectors is 130 bucks each.

That whole old indian with the tear thing is like another tribe maybe.. Not slaming Navajos.. Good folks and you want someone to have your back in a fight pick one.. They don't know quit.. But ecology is NOT what they do. PERIOD..

2 things

Jim thanks for the heads up. My first car was a renult encore block cracked and it was the greatest day in my life up till then, my main vehicle was a G20 Cargo van it was beat to hell outside but the motor was strong, threw in a set of brakes all around and easy to work on, I recognized everything on the motor and could fix it. Funny story the ingnition switch was kind of goofy it wouldnt always start so one of those occasions that it wouldnt start called AAA to get a jump and before they even put the booster on it started, the guy told me to take out the keys from the ignition and I reached in my pocket and handed him the keys while it was still running!
He just turn around and left! LOL
