Women as a whole still don't change their own flats. Only the attitude has changed and nothing else.

Lol! Gonna order my tin foil hat too. Reality though with health considerations aside, said mini towers will impact your property value and not in a good way. I may do a FOIA for town to find out where they plan or if they plan to put up these 40 foot gems.

The Lounge / 5G networks

My dad (going on 92 years of age) gave me a "cell phone" earful this evening for two hours about potential health risks of 5G cell phone usage.  He's pretty sharp for 91 apparently and is well aware of 40 foot towers that will be going up everywhere including front lawns between the sidewalk and the street of some communities.  Apparently they are putting these mini towers up without notifying residents.  Anyone have an opinion on 5G proliferation and potential health risks?  Any electronics majors here or doctors on this site?  Popular mantra is that it is non ionizing radiation so it is okay.  I'm not so sure it's okay for perhaps other undisclosed reasons that Scientific American touched upon.  But I finished the conversation with the contention that he offered no viable solution, only pointed to a problem.  I need a phone for business so in the end, it didn't matter whether it did or didn't cause ill effects.

My thoughts too.  I've kinda moved on.  It was fun to see.  As I have mentioned in prior posts, there was an unusual aura coming from it.  And I'm not normally a superstitious guy.

Up For Auction / Re: Rare Don Prudhomme Shelby Poster

At the end of the day, I guess it's really only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. I do know this however, they are not making any more of them. I'm not justifying the cost, but if I had only bought that 65 R-Model in 82'.......... 8)
You had your sights on an R back in 1982? Which one was it?
I pined over the Milo Brooks car back in the mid 90s. $150k in Rapid City South Dakota. Every Hemmings I saw it I died a little more.  It stayed there for months. Did not have the downstroke for it being still fairly fresh in the legal field which equally reflected my earnings at that time.

I shouldn't complain. I am lucky to have the red Hertz. The love of my life as it turns out after the marriages collapsed and the women left.

And to make this post relevant, the poster is too highly priced in my opinion because it doesn't have a Shelby "feel" about it like it would portraying a Cobra or Shelby Mustang. But hey, opinions vary.

Replicas and Tribute / Re: better option than detroit locker?
« on: January 15, 2020, 10:03:27 AM »
Is there a quick an easy way to determine if there is a Detroit Locker in it or do I have to drain the diff oil and tear it apart?
Best,
Richard E.

    Sorry, I didn't respond to your inquiry in my previous post; but the answer is yes!

    Lift one (only one) of the rear tire/wheel off the ground, turn it rearward, it will stop, then with a quick snap and reasonable force rotate it forward direction (sometimes you kinda need to bounce it off the reverse stop), this should, aided with the inertia of the mass, cause the ratchet to open allowing the wheel to be rotated forward ahead of the ring gear and D.L. case, with the click, click, click, clicking sound as the side gear cams.  This may require a couple of attempts as it does require the right touch if the unit just fails to cooperate. Then reverse the rotation, and the unit should re-lock.........."CLUNK"  Only the Detroit does this, so if it does............ and you don't have one...........then something is F.U.!         ;)

     Scott.
Thank you Scott. I'm going to give it a shot this weekend. Intellectual curiosity..

Yes and no doubt they'd have embedded attorneys monitoring like the military does to determine if a shot can happen or an attack launched. Lawyers. Shesh. Oh wait a minute...

Interesting dissertation on Detroit Lockers Scott and thank you. I'm going to look into it. The R Models has Detroit Lockers didn't they and the cleaned up at the tracks of I am not mistaken. Three years B production champions. Right? And the U.S. is the biggest racetrack in the world. (Kidding. I observe all posted speed limits. I observe them through my windshield and that's about it.)

It left Sweden because now it's too dangerous there. Car wants to live.

If so it sure got publicity. And then the cops will take the impounded cars out and do 100+ themselves.
