What a kid!
$50 for 64' Galaxy500 in 75'.
Needed timing chain.
Rust free as in rust was no charge.
Right on congratulations ! Gotta sell the Gasser and get a Evo ? Maybe a free Evo. Or maybe it's discount on bikes as a ambassador if it's free bikes Izz gotta figure oot what instagram is.
I believe you are correct sir.
No plans to get an Evo this season. Maybe next, but not really in a rush for that.
There is a 250RR Race Edition with my name on it coming in the next container from Italy. Should be here sometime mid December to January....
You forgot traction!
Didja reply with something something like: "Shoulda bought a Honda"?
Shhhhh. Men are talking.
How much for that 66 sang in like new condition? I am not saying it is worth it, people pay a lot of money for old stuff.
How did you survive with a rwd truck?
It was a pain in the ass. I had one more 2WD drive truck (next one was a new ‘81 F-250) and then got tired of fighting it. Been 4x4 since ‘83-‘84.
The march of time is interesting. Back then, everyone drove rwd vehicles, cars and trucks. Somehow life went on. Now, you better have AWD to even venture into the Home Depot parking lot.
87 f150 2wd. 6 cyl stick.
Best truck I ever owed.
Great for towing the race trailer or anything for that matter.
I can’t say that was really the case as 4x4 trucks always largely outnumbered 2WD trucks here as far back as I remember. Cars, yes, as the only front-drive cars then were the Toronado/Riviera, save for some obscure import. But studded snow tires were allowed back then.
I get to be within striking distance of @Mow-ree ’s neighborhood today. This moderate snow/freezing rain will be awesome to drive in.
It also means I have to wear pants today.
Does anyone have any thoughts about sleeping in a bed while a vehicle is in motion? The older I get, the more I think aboot safety. I think I want a harness or belts. Our bed goes left right across the van. I am thinking 3 manually adjustable lap belts. One torso, one hips and one legs. I have woken up and found myself sliding forward toward the edge of the bed a few times. In an accident, I am sure the person in the bed would end up going above the seats and out the windshield.
When we would sleep in the fold-flat seat in the back of my Crew Cab on the way to races I never really worried about it because of being right next to the front seat backs.
In your rig where you could be flung 6’ up into the cab...yeah, I’d want something. Google ‘woodhouse DOT sleeper’ and see if they sell a web/belt system separately.
Both my kids went through high school driving the ex-cop Tahoe. RWD only until recently. The youngest now has the Bravada (AWD) and the oldest has his '93 F-150 RWD. Proper snow tyres and a little weight in the ass will get you a long way. Especially here in the metro area.
Don't know. Im looking at seat height and weight + some power.
That's got at least 6" of travel. Won't collapse with some weight, on rear sub frame.
Still looking like a lowered DRZ is it.
