^^  Sounds a bit conservative on the power & torque the Paxton added.    I'd guess closer to 500+ for each.   :P

Two Paxtons = 1000hp!   

How about three? Off the charts!!

Good point...but it's four initials.  Not the actual saying.    First is H.

Trivia contest:  What are the initials on Shelby's hat pin?   If you were there, you'd remember.

I was.  The first letter is "H".

Clue: The saying is not politically correct (then or now) so please use discretion with your answers.

Back in the '80s, Dan Aykroyd told me that he wanted to do a horror car movie called "Killer Amphicars."   


I've been known to do all of the above, plus savoring the old car smells, gently touching the wear patterns on the upholstery & door panels, and closing my eyes to remember who was in the car with me, where we drove, what we did, on any of the hundreds of memorable days of yore.   

It's the best meditation transportation machine I've ever found.  With the engine off.  Or even in the years it didn't have an engine at all.

Interesting.  I had never heard of the Studio Zone before.  Were some of these locations in Christine near your area?

Richard:  That's what the initials for the TMZ tabloid show refers to:  Thirty Mile Zone.

Just about all of those thin metal garage doors can be breached quickly.

I have solid wood doors on each of my garages (probably weigh 400 pounds each, and that's for a single-car-wide door) and gear-drive openers.  Plus deadbolts. 

It's about as secure as I can make it, short of something more industrial looking.

Also have other things inside each garage for further protection, but those will remain a secret.

^^^  Randy, what year was that fire?

^^^ Same as on our Navigator.   

Annoying (or worse) when actually trying to hold the transmission in a low gear on a very steep downhill grade with a trailer attached.

Nice job.  Can you come over and do my cars next weekend?   

PS: That was better than 90% of the automotive TV shows, these days.


Tell your wife that there's only "something wrong with it" when it doesn't makes those noises or smells.

I'd forgotten about the Great White Steamer.  Yeah, there were piers.  Thanks for the pix.

Apologies for the topic drift.  Now back to our program...
