Have you seen those new "Rambler's"? I used to think those AMC big Station Wagons were a sight, until I had privilege to take a trip in that big Ambassador Wagon. It was Fast, and the ride equaled a Lincoln. Nice Vehicle. Terrible interior layout on the Rambler's. Check out the Skoda's. They don't ...

I like Chevy pickups. :D

Sure seem to be a lot of Fords on the road though. :o Maybe Fords are better! :cry:

No, I think my Chevy is best, for me. 8)

Great shot, Kevin. I've been shopping for a Mac X and found this picture on an ad for your boat. Hope you don't mind, but it really shows how you can get a Mac X close to shore.

My favorite metal repair is JB Weld. It is a metalized epoxie product, available in most hardware and auto parts stores. I have acutally used this stuff to repair a cracked block on my '60 Ford Falcon. Don't know how long it lasted. I drove it for 2 more years and sold it. You are correct to drill t...

They have to raise prices ahead of their deliveries because they use the income from the current stock to afford to buy the next shipment. Hmm. Things must have changed in the gas world since the 80's. I used to own and operate a service station(we actually washed windows) and repair garage in La G...

Not much in the way of real specs, but it does say that the 245 AH rating is a 20 Hr rating. That is over 12 Amps draw avera...

When they do give up the ghost I will replace them with a pair of 6V GC2 golf cart batteries. They have 215Ah and when wired in series will give me all the power I would ever need. Just a note on battery capacity ratings. Different battery chemistries react to different discharge rates differently....
