  2. Back when Harry was doing this he told me in a pm that it's a almost impossible thing not to do as he also a time or two did repeats .... Don't be so hard on yourself...... Your doing a fine job!!!!
  3. My wife has been struggling with her health since October and was originally diagnosed with pancreatitis and got some better but came June she got worse and thats when the test came back at the end of July as cancer of the pancreas so a appointment was made at Cancer Treatment Center Of America in Zion Illinois.. After spending a week at Cancer Treatment Centers Of America where we were just kicked like a stray dog and told flat out "Just go home and live your life as best and normal as you can with what time you have left" because the was no surgeon there that could do this type of work
  4. After a trying time here as of late we have been trying to be back to the norm with some of the cruise in scenes opening back up and the wife is feeling up to take her Maverick and me with the '66 and lastly back in November I picked up this roach which Baby Girl proudly takes.....like the song goes "She'll Have Fun Fun Fun Till Daddy Takes The T-Bird Away" ...Here's a Shot of her having fun.. 20200523_213016.mp4
  5. Pioneering NHRA female racer Barbara Hamilton, the first woman licensed by NHRA to drive a supercharged vehicle passed away 04/23/20 . Barb was not only a legend but one of the nicest people in the racing community and will be missed,I had the pleasure to meet/talk Mrs. Hamilton on many different occasions including last year at the IX Piston Power Show and even with her health issues then she still was a sweet first class lady and really appreciated her fans and was a honor to have at the cars show and races......Thank you Mrs. Hamilton for what you done for the sport and to open the door for
  6. Simply a fantastic build of a unique rare subject that I have never saw a 1:1 but have only read about,amazing detail and capture of the real thing.
  7. A time when trucks were beautiful and had style and this model shows that perfectly,such detail!!!
  8. When all said n done I love all old tractors and the two old ones mentioned are beautiful tractors, I myself have a '40 Ford 9N I have slowly been restoring...
  9. I love it!!!! Even though IH had their issues I still bleed red and believe the saying "if it ain't red ,leave it in the shed" ... this dio kinda goes against that sayin' LOL...
  10. She has full respect for the old timers and tries to absorb as much as she can from them but I know what you mean and I tell you what,she knows how to just give it back when given to her . We have a local shop and the man who owns/runs it is a carburetor guru and she has made arrangements to shadow with him from time to time because she knows its a dying breed and there is sooooooooooooo many old school rods out there.....she just blows me away with her thinking.....
  11. Thanks !!! Bill she definitely has the passion and understanding,this kid has been around cars literally all her life (one time I had to take her to work @ 6mo.s) she would always want to come to work with me on days off from school and she has been working for me in the parts dept. for the past 2 1/2 years part time . You mentioned that some get into this " because it's considered just a "job" for people of only moderate ability" which you are soooooooooooo correct as I see it more and more here at work but I can assure you she is doing this because of the love n passion and was afraid
  12. Steve it's funny you mentioned ASSET...I have been with Ford 37 years of the 38 that I been in this business and the dealer I have been for the past 30 has 4 very highly qualified Master Tech's that came from ASSET when it was available at Akron U and TRI-C just started the program which my daughter already has a spot waiting for her per Kitty who runs the class and the dealer I work for has a seat to sponsor her aaaaaaaaaand the best part!!!!!! she may get a free ride!!!! but either way she will go and once complete she wants her masters and go on to Fords PowerStroke program ..... The kid ha
  13. I have Spotify that I use in the garage or when having the '66 out ~but~ I do buy my music as well especially if I can find it in vinyl,sounds soooooooooooooo much better with the right equipment and I will also buy the CD's of the same...I dunno guess I am "old school" thinking that I am supporting my favorites artist/bands by purchasing their music..
