    Mack posted this picture today on their Twitter. This old girl ran for the Lang Company in Salt Lake City, Utah. Really makes me wish more of these survived... I love the look of the things and wish I had a hope in hell of ever owning one...

    I want to know why you Democrats are such cowards that you have not yet launched another civil war to free America of the totalitarian nightmare of President Donald J. Trump. I mean, if he’s truly Hitler 2: Electric Boogeyman, then isn’t it your sacred duty to remove this cancer on our body politic with arms if necessary? Look, I get that you Dems have a track record on insurrections designed to oppress the rights of Americans you feel superior to that is pretty poor (0-1) but come on, heroes of democracy, make your move! Just sitting here in the midst of this crisis you keep whining about makes you look like sissies or lying piles of talking garbage. Actually, both. Your hero, Jerry Nadler, while on parole from the chocolate factory, told the Senate this about our elected president: "Only his will goes. He is a dictator. This must not stand and that is another reason he must be removed from office by any means necessary ." A dictator? Hey, that’s bad, right? I mean, unless the dictator is a leftist – wasn’t Castro dreamy? But since this is a threat to our democracy, because Trump is a non-leftist dictator, aren’t you guys morally obligated to take action and remove him? It’s obvious that those treacherous treason-loving traitors of treachery, the Republican senators, won’t toss the guy who did nothing wrong out of office so you can start working on throwing Mike Pence out of office, likely for the high crime and misdemeanor of trying to make America into The Handmaid’s Tale? You must act now! Go home to your mom’s basements, dorms, tacky urban apartments and billionaire mansions and get your guns and… Oh, right. Awkward! You are against "scary" guns. . . By the way, if Trump is a dictator, why do you want to disarm the American people so the only one with guns is…Dictator Trump? Whatever, let’s see if you can focus. Okay, maybe you don’t have any guns like real men. Let’s assume you can find some guns. Now you need to water the kale bush of liberty with the blood of patriots. Okay, you’ll probably want to find another word than “patriots” since the term “patriots” upsets you – but because Trump is a “dictator,” we’re obviously in an extreme situation that calls for extreme measures. It’s totally time to figuratively fire on Ft. Sumter again, Democrats. Maybe this time it will work out better for you. Jerry Nadler will lead his unit, the 5’1 Oompa Loompa Brigade, known as “Wonka’s Own,” against the perilous peril of a president who got elected without the liberal elite’s permission. Can’t you just see him standing there before his men, women, and non-binary others, a midget Mussolini, his belt cinched tightly around his clavicle so that no matter where he wears his pistol it’s always in a shoulder holster? Then there’s the googly-eyed Audie Murphy of the Intelligence Committee, Generalissimo Adam Schiff, ready to lead the dreaded “Fighting Pencilnecks” of the 69th Brigade into battle uttering their unit motto “Ed Buck who?” Trump’s a dictator, so of course, Schiff will fight because if America falls under the rule of a dictator he has to be removed, right? Others would join the fight too. Ted Lieu can be your JAG. Perhaps Rashida Talib could help lead the kind of battlefield victories her pals the Palestinian terrorists are known for. And Ilhan Omar, who still has a beef with the Army for running up the score against the dirtbag murderers in Mogadishu, would no doubt resist alongside her brothers/husbands-in-arms. Maybe “That’s Lieutenant Colonel to You!” Vindman could finally get a battalion command. Colin Kapernick could try out for a unit, and when no one calls him he can tell you how you are all racists! Of course, cruise director Cap’n Bill Kristol and his crew of Fredocon swabbies can handle naval operations. Ahoy! And even Eric Swalwell can contribute despite his well-known aversion to the kind of weapons that men use in the defense of freedom. He can drop his shorts be in charge of chemical weapons and poison gas. Remember, removing President Trump is a sacred, somber, prayerful moral obligation because he’s a “dictator.” Words actually mean something. “Dictator” means something, and a lot of Americans have had experience with real ones either before moving here or while deployed. So, the next time you pampered wusses want to spew your MSNBC / CNN-approved rhetoric, save it. Pick up a weapon or shut the hell up.

    Like Rob I got somewhat bored. With the F model in New Mexico I thought I needed a project here in Ohio to keep me busy. This 1977 F 100 has set in the barn for years. This was her " Favorite Truck ". She had payed someone to restore it but he had serious health issues.so the truck was partly stripped and set this way for years. Not getting anyone in their right mind to take on this project I stepped up to the plate.

    Dynamatting well under way. Ordered 2 new airseats and made up new floor brackets for them. Got some pleated black vinyl material coming for back of cab, door panels and firewall. Going to get a new floormat too, might as well at this point.. Amazing how this stuff can snowball, I really just wanted to get the windshield wipers working again.

    Strapped, clamped, bolted and pinned together. Gaps and panels all lined up and now all welded together in one big piece. Just the roof to attach and a whole bunch of fine tuning before bodywork. Big progress in the last few weeks and can't wait to have this part behind me.

    Had to get a little creative with my “coach work”. The lower cab frame I had fabricated was made out of three pieces and welded together. The issue with it was it lacked the bow the original had. The upper two frames have it. The bows help keep the sheet metal taught when assembled. Made a template off the upper bows and then made a tapered shim out of mahogany and bonded it to the lower frame. Issue solved!

    Umm..........what ????? China as of January 2020 has US$3.115 trillion* in foreign exchange reserves. Why would we give another country free money........that has more money than our deficit-ridden country has????? The way tax-payer money is senselessly handed out overseas by the pallet load should be a crime. * https://www.reuters.com/article/china-economy-forex-reserves/chinas-jan-forex-reserves-rise-to-3-115-trillion-idUSAZN02BXSZ

    I never want to get involved in politics but it sickens me to watch the democrats. The day Pelosi is out of office it will be a great step forward for Americans. the aholes that wasted all our money going after trump should have to pay it all back out of their own pocket. I hope Trump turns on shiff and rest of them and sticks it up all their asses. Trump for another 4 years I need more money in my retirement account.

    Decided to work on my hydraulic trailer ramps a bit today being beautiful outside and having nothing else to do. I had some 3/4" plate plasma cut for the trailer hinge mounts and after removing the drill stem from the original weldments, they don't fit too bad: Following the weldor's creed to measure twice, cut once, and grind to fit: After making all four plates match very closely, it was time for fitment into their channel which is the rear of the trailer: With all four of the hinge plates matching, they fit right in leaving enough gap to ensure full penetration welds. They are shown square, level, and tacked into place. The heavy wall pipe, (drill stem) is loose in the bores as it will slide though the back of the ramps for them to pivot/rotate upon: Tomorrow I will open up the holes for the trailer lamps to mount into. They mount through the channel under the ramp pivot/hinge point. Don't know if I'll go oval, or round, but I favor round as I'm not very "modern" in thinking. The assembly "may" get tacked onto the rear also but could wait for another day too. At least it keeps me out of the bars.....

    Nothing like new. Scored this early N.O.S. LJX (3 hinge, no vent window) door while buying up a bunch of B model parts up in Massachusetts a few years ago. Just needed to remove the forward window channel to make it work. Sanded off the 70+ year old primer to etch prime it. I found one minor ding on the door, but its perfect and will save a lot of time trying to fix the original.

    Best SOTU ever and your right Pelosi showed what real POS she is, I can't believe that any Democrat can say they are happy with their party, corrupt dishonest and disdain for America that is the Democrat platform and I dare any democrat to debate me, show me your support for the American way of life, Democrats want open borders, what do think would happen if all the Mexicans and people from Central America just showed up, how do you condone a abortion up to the day of birth, ever seen a calf cut out of a cow, pretty disgusting, but that is what they think is right, reach in with a with a razor blade and hack it up because mommy decided while high on crack you need to go, Democrats have some reps in congress with a rag on their head that come from countries that abuse women and it's Ok but they talk about women's rights ???? these same people make jokes about marrying your brother if from Alabama, unless your Democrat from another country trying to cheat and lie for your brother, then it is OK ,Biden is a liar and dishonest, his son got 50k a month just so some bad actors could have a direct link to the Vice President of USA and that is not problem with the Democrat voter, really sick demented behavior on the part of the Democrat voter. All the men and women who gave their lives in all the wars would be disappointed to see the great sacrifice wasted by the now so enlightened Democrat voter, disgusting and shameful. If you don't like America don't bother to vote just pack your crap and go someplace else your not welcome anyway.

    But they sell themselves as the party that is caring and will be there to help when you are in need and that is pure BS, they care about one thing, themselves, I don't want any one to suffer or live in true need but the Democrats use the lure of free stuff only to get those in need or just the loser wanting a free ride to get votes, the average Democrat voter just doesn't have the spine to call out their own kind they just go along and thus lose any respect they may have had.

    Delivered to Hazy center at 3:30 this morning awesome site to see them open the the hanger style doors at the end of the building in the middle of night with all the lights on, all those shining planes in there lined up, beautiful site, the building is 150 feet wide and the entire end opens, but think of this the Antonov 225 wing span is 290 feet in width, imagine a airplane that is basically as wide as a football field, Awesome.
