I've got a good idea, have some land in deep woods someplace; build a nice big garage and move into it.
Working on that. Mine includes the lake, is that ok?

I know, I was hinting at you. I know it's too late, your wife has already made the plans, with your help. I've got a friend with a large back yard and he once talked about building a small A-frame house back there right behind his large detached garage. He wanted to be able to avoid the house, and wife, and be closer to the projects/garage. Life stopped that idea fast.

My personal best ET is 12.35 with a top speed of 114 mph. View attachment 1087371
Nice! I have an 11 f150 EB Screw 4x4. Afe intake, Solo perf cat back, Wagner intercooler, 5Star tune, 355 gears. Never dyno or on the track, but plenty to compare it to. Should be in the 440hp/520tq give or take. Pretty decent for a 5600# truck.

Honestly we still aren’t decided yet. No telling what we will decide on.

Take your time, the economy right now isn't likely to make the new construction worse, hopefully it will improve with that soon.

Definitely. That’s why we are clearing land by hand instead of using a dozer for a week. I see us doing it maybe next 18 months or so. Assuming we can decide on a plan. I’m still flipping back and forth on garage size, wall height, etc.

With data like that my decision to re-engine the Jeep looks better every day. I just have such a hard time with these prices. That may change - who knows what’s next.

Half the household is leaving for Maine at 2am. Non stop drive. Wifey likes the first rotation thru VA maybe MD. Then I take over. We arrive around dinner time. Taking the Jeep since the air is running well.

My wife would just laugh and laugh if I suggested we had to do anything (perhaps other than FINALLY go to bed) at 2AM.... Be safe Chris -- enjoy your holiday.

Lol. My wife often wakes up at 2a, ever since the ole days of breast feeding actually. So she hates to waste awake hours then. Makes perfect sense. I can fall back asleep in passenger seat once we get on I-81N. I wake up on other side of VA thereabouts. I’ll post some pics next week of our views on property.

Man Richard, the heartwood on that load looks amazing!
Hard to beat red cedar that’s been around for a while. That was a fork off a 35’ that fell few months back. Other fork is bigger. 40+ year old tree.

Fail this weekend - didn't touch the escort. And the blower motor is still working. Go figure.

Cruise is not working. Had issues with it before, the clutch switch was fouled up. Switch has to be engaged (clutch released) for the CC to work. I fixed it probably 100,000 miles ago. Yet it stopped working at same time I had the blower motor issues. So, coincidence or something more ominous like the ignition switch?

The world will never know until I'm able to tear into things and check them out. Going camping this weekend for the 4th, so it won't be this weekend.

What's old is new again.


Trying to locate an old Incon Twin Turbo kit. Might have a home for one if I can find one.

Quick Google for you Richard and it seems that one model is definitely one that falls in the gap. Hopefully its not like the fox mustang where you have to worry about the thing igniting. It's amazing that Ford sold millions of cars with that ignition switch. I think it has more to do with materials than design. Pot metal and plastic fall apart.
