  1. I think there was an article on those in RP magazine many years ago. Weren't they made by Franklin or someone else. I could be wrong been wrong many times before.
  2. Our district has a Sheriff's deputy at all the high schools and middle schools. 4 high schools and I think the same number of middle schools. Seems like a waste of people who could be somewhere else but if it stops something then it's priceless. Is this common now I know we didn't have it in the same district when I was in school?
  3. And it's a mystery to many why you can't keep good help and why there are supply issues
  4. Yes the Riviera always had a unique look. Grew up sleeping on the package tray of a 4 door 73-74 LeSabre
  5. Thanks. No more for looks than anything. Stock manifolds, only 1 of the "spaghetti " pipes are live but they do give it a nice deep tone even without a cam in it. [ performance cam]
  6. Hopefully he takes after his dad. When around women his face gets red,palms sweaty and can't speak. Then he'll just be scared of them until he can't stand it anymore. About the age of 30 maybe a little younger 😊
  7. Not a true GS just a stock 350 skylark. We've built this thing on a shoestring budget- GS emblems, wheels, bumpers, and springs all came from swap meets. Sandhiller it does not have the 8 track but came with the all important barefoot gas pedal. The console he built in ag class,a little rough but not bad for a 15-16 year old. And I have no idea how the he!! to turn this picture over
  8. My son got his permit last week so to celebrate we put the side pipes,spoiler and cragars on the 70 Buick we're building for him and rode around. While converting the front to disk brakes we put 70 big block camaro springs under the front which raised it almost 4 full inches from the worn out original springs and air shocks in the rear for that 70's look. The plan is to have it painted by the time he can drive himself in 6 months.
  9. Don't have any of my original ones but when you get to be an antique like me you try to buy things you had to make you feel young again. When I was young I had the same 966 and plow combo. The 1586 I had later and bought with my own money.
  10. Our 5088 had it about 7-8 years now around 6500 hrs. Really like the way it shifts and the cab is nice after only having open stations or 66's with no doors. Put larger rubber on the front just for looks and every winter I say it's going to be painted but doesn't look like it will happen this year again. Been very reliable but I only use it for hay work.
  11. Should not reply to this but I think he is one who turns us against each other.
  12. An electrician did tell me last week wiring was starting to come down in price?
  13. My Dad once asked an employee to go to the hardware store and get a metric adjustable wrench. He made the trip, some funny looks at the store.
  14. Brother in law says a potato but we were talking about higher powered rifles.
  15. Problem is man-cave, garage, -shop has been finished for years and she's still waiting on she-shed! Sucks when you're outnumbered 3 to one boys to girls!
  16. Yes mother was not very happy about the boys stealing her lumber but she's even less happy about the progress I'm making on her she-shed!
  17. Yes both can swim and the 12 yr old did get on. Pond is only 4-5 feet deep it's been a little dry here should be 6 feet deep.
  18. Always have a large supply of yellow buckets around so my boys came up with this. One sheet of osb stolen from mom's garage and here you go. The 12 year old was afraid to get on but at least it got him away from the computer for a little while.
  19. Afraid you would say that. Been a long time but I think I used a 580 backhoe and small Oliver to unload like you said. Now the problem is I can haul the 580 there but the planter ties up the trailer and I can't unload it.
  20. Lost some rented ground to development and I have an 8 row 800 30" trailing planter to move. The end wise transport was cut off before I got it. Only way I have to move is with a gooseneck 3 foot off the ground. What's it gonna take to lift this? Have a 966 with a westendorf loader but I'm afraid it's too much for that.
  21. Is that J&J in Glasgow? Would like to have it but divorces are too expensive.
  22. Very nice! Our family has had several Buicks over the years always nice fit and finish. Building a 70' for my son's first car now.
  23. Needs a big IH sticker below the steering column!
  24. When I was in grade school I helped a recently widowed neighbor. I had forgotten how awkward that tractor was until reading these posts. It did have the 2 speed on the dash so you could really fly when no one was looking . When I would get stuck or some other problem Dad would help me out and it usually ended with him grumbling how Henry Ford never did know how to build a tractor.
  25. Wow! A lot of work there. Made my day to see a young person capable of that and the tenacity to see the job through?
