Wonder if it will end up as cranky as my chainsaw, which refuses to start when the temperature is below 80?

Bidding starts at only $5,000.



It brought a shade more than $5k...

Aw, they're just trying to sell more tires, I never drive on skating rinks.

Save money but be sure to use 2" screws for maximum traction. :haha:

Holy shit, 137 ft stop from 70 mph! My '69 took something like 170 ft from 70. Probably the major difference is the tires now put a bigger footprint to work.

It's taken them a long time, there were well aware of truck camper's in the late 50s. I guess it just took a camper maker to offer enough money and lawyers to work out liability.
My '67 F-250 Ranger, Camper Special, was set up for it. Wiring harness in the bed, 4:10 Detroit locker, 16" split ring wheels with tubed tires, two gas tanks for 45 gallon total, 352ci, automatic. I could climb a mountain with my Dad's camper on, and get 10 miles to the gallon going up... and coming down. :haha:

V, that looks simple until the squeeze into an itty bitty package.

I wonder what this guy would say if;
1- he wasn't dead, which I'm sure he is, because he wasn't a kid so he would be the oldest person in the world, and that's impossible as the oldest, and the line of succession, is always women.
2- he could stand there and see it today, 90 years later.
I'd bet real money the rock under the car was used by somebody to block a wheel so their fliver didn't roll away while enjoying the view, or having sexy time in the back seat.

Ah hah. Figured out how to convert the wide tag. You have to hit the 3dots option thing, then pick copy post content. Reply, paste, remove the word wide from the tags.

Gravdigr 12-06-2015 03:16 PM

So, you know what gentlemanly means...If you'd asked me, in a gentlemanly manner, to post small YouTube clips/vids, I would be doing that now. But you managed to suggest it was my responsibility to post in a way you find acceptable. And that's why I didn't change anything about how I was posting vids.

And then you created a thread in which to complain about it some more. In the same you're-here-to-please-me-tone, I might add.

So, you win. I'll not be posting anymore wide YouTube vids.

I started by asking if it was just me that couldn't see the wide links. When other people confirmed that it was symptomatic of Tapatalk, I suggested that people might not use them. There were steps along the way. Because you only noticed when I hit you over the head with it, says more about your level of consideration than my bitchiness. Please continue to use the wide tags if you feel that they are more appropriate than the normal tags. I only ask that you ALSO drop the regular tag if you want people that use Tapatalk to see what you're on about.

It's just a matter of hitting ctrl-v and one click more. Takes 2 seconds.

Noted.




ETA: I noticed when you "suggested", I also noticed it came across as quite douchey. More than once. If I got more outta that than you intended, well, that's my failing. Yet another of many.

Now, I haven't posted a wide clip since you got snotty, I don't intend to post any more wide clips, so, can we drop this now?

Please?

Some DIY projects are better than others. My buddy built a VW powered trike from a short Honda frame, and had to weld three 12"x12"x1" steel plates across the front of the down tubes of the frame to take off with no throttle. The PA State Cop took one look and said no way. :lol:

Can you explain what part of this post is not douchey?

This one isn't douchey, but, contains a douche-like dig.

And this post is comprised entirely of vinegar and water.


Ima go cry for a while now.

Oh, THAT thredd was 100% douchey. Intended to be.

I was saying that the times it came up before I had comported myself with great patience and gentlemanly manners.

I think we have it sorted now.

A car show from 1954. It was a B&W picture that's been supposedly accurately colorized.

white, black, grey and silver, amounting to over 70% of the total world car production. Red, blue and brown/beige cars range between 6% and 9% each, while all other colours amount to less than 5%. Colour choice is subject to fluctuation and fashion, and historical trends shifted from dark neutral colours of early cars, through more vivid colors of 1950s and 1960s, back towards the today's neutral colours.
But what do they know, they spelled color wrong. :lol:

xoxoxoBruce 12-21-2015 02:31 PM

I was surprised. I've been vaguely aware of Whippets(cars, not the dog or whipped cream capsules), pretty sure I've seen a couple, but didn't know they were built by Willys.

http://cellar.org/2015/WippetRoadster.jpg

Cannonball Baker was the inspiration for the Car & Driver Magazines, "Cannonball Baker Sea to Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash" races from NYC to Redondo Beach, CA, in the '70s, which I read about each year with irrational exuberance. After five years in was too well publicized with cops across the country competing to stop and ticket the most racers, in the name of protecting the public, and preserving Crook Nixon's 55 mph national speed limit. The series was followed by a couple of books by participants, then a slew of Cannonball, and Gumball movies.

It's funny(to me), the complete and correct, "Cannonball Baker Sea to Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash" name, which few knew at the time, rolls off my tongue effortlessly, while I can't remember what I had for breakfast. :crone:

1914 Militaire had outriggers that could be deployed with a lever at slow speeds. That $165k was this year, not 1914. :haha:

Pamela 12-30-2015 06:58 PM

I used to drive a huge Cat 769 at a mine in PA.

We had to drive them up the mine road, across a public road and up to the edge of an abandoned mine, back up to the edge, dump the waste and return, over and over.

One poor soul got too close to the edge, which crumbled out from under him and he and his truck went over and rolled to the bottom. The bed was torn off the chassis but the truck was otherwise undamaged. The owners brought in a big wrecker, righted the truck, got it running, drove it out of the pit, replaced the hydraulics, put the bed back on and had the thing back at work in two days.

The driver, not so much. He lived to tell the tale, albeit with a broken leg and two broken arms.

That's a shitload of weight, living on the edge is hazardous to your health. He was lucky to live.

Mary Lambright, 23, made the 1880 historic bridge collapse on Christmas Day in Paoli, Indiana
Iron bridge had a weight limit of six tons - her vehicle and trailer weighed about 60,000 pounds - or 30 tons - at crash
Lambright told police she didn't know how many pounds were in six tons
No injuries, but the bridge collapsed under the weight and was destroyed
She left the Amish order about a year ago, got her CDL in May, rented the truck from Penske. Pulling a 53' box with 43,000lbs of bottled water to walmart, hit the superstructure at 30mph, then the damaged bridge couldn't handle the weight. Doesn't say if she was shooting for walmart's 15 minute window.

The problem with the '38 IH is the cab was made at the end of the depression when most folks were skinny. Two of us fat guys wouldn't have room for a lunch box.
Whenever we had to fit three in, if there was a girl, she got put in the middle straddling the shifter. Sorry, but I need first and third too. :blush:

One of the SSR guys customized his truck to look like that '53 chevy.
