Over at Phil's place I see a YT vidya about a Ford. However, I think there were more Eff's in there than just Ford.
Is he looking over my shoulder now or what? I mean, what are the odds of that showing up right now??
I recently traded this wonderful engineering marvel I bought from a buddy. He found under a tree, in a pasture out near Kerrville, TX:
|Goodbye old friend.
He shot some clear on it, and fixed the interior up. Nice little get around truck. I put new skins on it, a rear bumper and a new battery. Besides oil changes, it never needed anything else. Everything was Armstrong: steering, windows, 5 speed trans.... It didn't even have a/c, and I live a few miles from the sun during the summer (April to October down here). All in all, one of the best horses I've ever had. Got it with 100K, and traded it away with 120K after 10 years or so. Just my Little Roller Skate, or the Green Hornet. I never settled on a name....
Traded for this one:
The old bed was junk, so the welder put a nifty farm bed on it. Insurance deemed it 'commercial' so it's a couple bux more a month than the Roller Skate. Thinking about white wash on the sides of the bed, and Rhino Liner on the top. It needs bed drains, that four inch square tubing makes a great swimming pool. Planning a tow truck flat front bumper and a few aerials for the two-ways. Mount them like the Aussies do. Might as well be rilly-rilly differnt.
I think it resembles a hyena, what with the tucked butt. Maybe a zoomie dog. It's got potential. I have plans for it. I hope to get that done over the next several months. My uncle used to narrate the arrival of his sister's beau back in the long distant past when the theater of the mind still ruled the airwaves: "...a white truck, a cloud of dust, hi-yo Silver!!!"
