  1. That’s a good point and I have a ball peen hammer🤔
  2. Well, how’s the search going?
  3. I’m no fan of extremes either left or right but that dude seems like a complete snake to me
  4. I’m probably not the best person for this because I struggle giving up stuff . I’m working on my 22nd year on the fire department,I’ve thought about quitting a few times when I’ve been PO’d about something, always ended up sticking it out. 20 years is a long time, thanks for the service you have provided. Jump while he’s moving, tip your hat and walk away.
  5. I use super clean and water in a bucket, soak for a few days, then hose off and was in the washing machine. But pour the water out of the bucket before removing the pants, otherwise all the oil on the surface gets on them again
  6. Is that one of those that is supposed to come out through the bottom? 4 bolts and the whole sub frame comes down with the engine?
  7. For real, check out the lease price on the cruze
  8. I plan to be dead by spring, I wonder if she likes gm trucks? for real though mark, have you considered a low mileage economy lease? If she has no trade a basic driver can often be had pretty reasonable. And you really aren't loosing anything if you aren't trading in something you already own. Most lease programs come with a maintenance plan, she would have worry free modern transportation, probably for a similar price.
  9. Worst I've had are our vans, I liken it it to putting a 350 in a mailbox and then changing the plugs while looking through a keyhole, or as my grandfather would say, "it's like eating soup out of a jug with a fork."
  10. That looks sharp , I like it best with the welder body on it.
  11. Wasnt in the market , would have been an Impulse purchase anyway. I'm saving up for our 76' tanker anyway. That one I will fight over, the world has been forewarned. Another town has a k20 late 70's that is also in very nice shape, has a period correct cap and everything there's going to be a line out the door for that when it's time.
  12. Either way, I’m still bummed out. I hadn’t even registered the odd front /rear axle setup, been seeing it my whole life and never questioned it. That one had a PTO pump and a 300? Gallon tank. Plus chain saws, hand tools, hose, bladder bags, the list goes on , dorset is a well equipped department. Haven’t even seen the new one. East dorset has a pretty slick truck too. 98 f350srw It’s a manual trans and I’m pretty sure it’s got a v10 but could be wrong there. 3k ish on the clock . Has an aluminum body with tank pump and tools.
  13. Drove by the dorset firehouse yesterday to see their brush truck stripped sitting by the road . By the time I shagged down the chiefs number it was sold 78’ k30 , DRW, C+C flatbed, 3sp auto Bought new........................................wait for it ..................................................................6k miles on the clock it sold for $5000.00 😩😩😩😩😩😩😡🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
  14. We are fighting a nationwide drug Crisis and nation wide we are making drugs (pot) legal... Sends a mixed message in my mind. Is pot as bad as meth, heroin , or prescription opioids? No, but it DOES help open the door to them, more and more it seems that there is a total lack of accountability from the top on down. I've said it before, I'll say it again, when people started throwing their bibles away is when all of this started really going downhill, and I don't mean that being religious means you can't/won't do drugs or vise versa , but what I am getting at is that with religions across the board tends to come a moral compass and a sense of responsibility, when society shuns and rejects that you get the situation we're in today... It's ok to be a screwup because I can blame someone else and we don't have to contribute to society because someone else will do it, they owe it to us.
