    Pictures of the Week

    Seen some really marginal tie downs in my steel hauling days! Like a four by four thru the center and a chain over each end! No edge protecters etc.

    Home Depot 48 hour return policy

    41 that practice of "renting"a generator or other storm related stuff is common here in Florida! Then the thing is used and they can't legally sell it as new! But 48 hrs on a new appliance is ridiculous!

    chicken lights for the mack truck

    David, Hunts Point was the reason I never hauled produce!LOL I used to haul insulation into the S.Bronx all the time, but with a flatbed you are unloaded in a half hour,and can split! It's the waiting that gets ya! Freightrain the chicken lights look great!Bob's been asking about you but I've been off the site for awhile! He's polishing the headers on his IHRA teams rail,getting ready for the season to open!

    Classy Ford

    Absolutely! In about 1962 I knew a kid who had a 57 Bel Aire four door hardtop blue and silver if my memory serves,Rochester fuel injected 283 with a four speed,had to be a rare optioned car especially with the four door! His dad bought it new!

    Oh No! Are they that lost?

    Just thought of this...what if the emergency braking system on their new car failed to work would they know to hit the foot pedal?

    Don't they make 4" straps and chains anymore? As for eye protection, when I was 19 I was removing a pilot bushing using grease and a Chevy main drive gear (with the synchro splines on the end without eye protection!) I spent 14 days in the hospital! I see eye protection violations on reality shows all the time! Dirty jobs, Overhauling etc!

    First F model

    MB I remember they promoted the Allis Chalmers as a road engine for awhile in the middle 70s but then you didn't hear any more about them.
