    The pied piper cramer said shld was worth 200 bucks. Only a knucklehead listens to knuckleheads. The Market would be much better off if he would just go away and not say a word....

    my Mom bought a new 52 Hudson Hornet 4-dr. and i think she paid close to 4,000 big ones back then. She had her own Beauty Salon in the basement of our home for 50 years. Her first customer was her last customer and it took a lot of permanent waves to pay for that beast. She said the salesman told her that if the car ever rolled over, it would land back on it's wheels and that's what sold her. These salesman nowadays could learn a lot from Mom....

  • going to effect your railways big time, not to mention mass layoffs. You voted and threw away money on that knucklehead, so why not call him and try to talk some sense into that BIG HEAD of his??

    There is no "commonsense approach" to murdering the Most Holy Innocent of GODs Children and then selling their body parts. It'll be HELL to pay for all you morons. If they were doing the same things to animals that they are doing to GODs Babies, the left would have a fit. Animals are more precious to these idiots than Human Life.
    READ THE BAYSIDE MESSAGES...."All those that have any measure in the murder of the unborn will spend eternity in HELL, watching the parade of the MURDERED INNOCENTS."

    FORD and others should get around to building trucks that you can work out of, instead of the 60k dollar "Look at Me" variety. You need a ladder to work out of those beasts....

    The idea that Nike would pay any athlete anywhere close to that kind of money for endorsements is absolutely NUTS!! They've got to cut WAY, WAY BACK ON ENDORSEMENTS and put that money to better use or in the bank. Who really cares what kind of shoes Rory wears, or if your underwear has a tag on it?? Put the advertising world out of business and do us all a favor. The word "NIKE" is enough....

    A BEAUTIFUL, stock 40 Ford Convertible went through the Mecum auction recently and i think the highest bid was in the mid 30's and it didn't sell. The Muscle Cars are taking over, because they're so much fun to drive and even us old farts are jumping on the bandwagon. i had a black 69 Mach I, M-code, 351 Windsor, 4-speed car for 20 years and sold it after picking up a black, 455 76 Trans Am. i bought my son a 69 Mustang, S-code, 390 4-speed car for his high school graduation and he still has it. 69 Camaro's are hot these days, but the Camaro prices have gone through the roof. 79 and older Pontiac Trans Am's are cheaper and are a much better driving car than the old Camaro's. i grew tired of driving 4-speeds and picked up a blue 78 Trans Am needing work (1400 bucks) and a SWEET, white 77 Trans Am with a built 400, shaker hood, beautiful black interior & dash for 5700 bucks and it's a BLAST to drive. They handle so much better than the old Ford, Mopar or other variety The Trans Am's are coming up in price, but they are the ones to drive on that Saturday or Sunday afternoon. The windows rolled down on a sunny day, the wind in your hair (if you have any left) and the tunes on the killer CD player. Smell those horses out in the country. That will recharge your batteries for the next work week. Old farts aren't dead yet....

    in Sheridan for quite a few years. He said that he was living on a farm when he was six years old and a neighbor drove up in a Ford coupe. From that day on he became a car guy and worked in a body shop, before going to work at the Roundhouse in Mandan. He also worked part time at the Chrysler Dealership as a body man and still found time to restore his beloved 31 Buick coupe and drove it out here a couple of times. He bought a white 57 Ford Convertible in 59 and drove it for 40 years, until he died in 99 of a brain tumor. He was close to retirement and wanted me to pick up a few muscle cars that needed restoration and would keep him busy for a few years. i picked up a few out here north of Seattle. Prices were a little more reasonable back then.
    69 yellow roadrunner, hp 440, 4-speed car for 3200 bucks.
    67 Mustang fastback for 1200 bucks.
    69 Mustang fastback for 2500 bucks. S-code 390, 4-speed car.
    64 Chev convert for 2500 bucks.
    He would come out every couple of months and haul one back to Sheridan on his trailer. Unfortunately, he died shortly before retirement.
    GOD only made one Brucie and that one NEVER missed Sunday Mass. He was a good pal...

    The first thing Ron and i did was throw out the 10 lap rule in favor of the 15 or whatever we wanted lap rule. Nine of the ten karts had a restrictor plate between the carb and the block, but they still ran pretty strong. we took the plate off the 10th kart and only special customers and friends would ride the Super Kart.
    Mr. Indy would pull up every wednesday and sometimes Saturday night around 8 pm in his beautiful green 56 Chev 2-dr post. His wife sat next to him and they were probably in their 50's at the time. He was a mechanic at the Chevrolet Dealership in Mandan. His wife would sit patiently, while he got his weekly racing fix. He was a nice guy and a great racer, so we always pulled out the Super Kart for him. We would limit the other karts to two or three, so they wouldn't get in his way. The ultimate racer, he would scream down high on the straits and swoop down on the corners, coming out high again, seldom taking his foot off the gas. Never a hair out of place. He would lap the other karts every 3 or 4 laps. He looked like he was sitting in his strat-0-lounger in his living room watching Ward Bond on Wagon Train. We would let him run for 20 or 30 minutes or until he got tired. The looky-loos in the parking lot would run to get tickets, thinking they were going to ride the Super Kart, but only a few ever did....

    Joe and Bob Woodmansee owned a very successful office machine store in Bismarck. They were an unlikely duo to open a Go-Kart Track. Bob was the stern businessman and Joe was the happy-go-lucky other half. The 2nd summer had them build a beautiful 5" thick oval track about a block long and we bolted three tires together, painted them a bright yellow and circled the concrete track with them. It was a far cry from the dirt and hay bale track the 1st year. Bob would show up every Sunday in his khaki shorts and cap. He was the designated flagman and a welcome sight with 4 or 500 customers on the weekend at 50 cents a ride. He would stand out there counting off 10 laps on his fingers behind his back. He NEVER let anyone go more than 10 laps. A few Sundays later, the novelty wore off and he never came back. Joe would show up every friday with paychecks (50 cents an hour) and share a couple Black Label beers and give us one in the boxcar at the west end of the track. He was a good Joe. They still needed someone over 21 for insurance purposes, so they hired Mr. Sleepy. He worked another job on graveyard, so spent his time sleeping in the back seat of his 50 Dodge 4-dr. He would come out every couple of hours, fill the gas tanks on the karts and go back to sleep. my older Brother Gare went on to a higher paying job delivering grease rags to gas stations, so i hired my best buddy Ron and the two of us snot nosed 15 year old kids ran the track the rest of the summer. i needed a car and was lucky enough to pick up a decent blue 51 Merc Convert for 80 bucks to drive us out to the track....

    The black Bostitch BCT10X that use both the narrow crown and round crown staples. They load from the bottom and you can use small length sections with no problem. We've tried 3 or 4 other brands and a few months later, they were in the garbage. HD doesn't stock it, but Lowe's does....

    When Acrylic Enamel auto paint first came out, SW paint was the closest you could get to a factory paint job. Acrylic Enamel is the hardest paint to shoot and left no room for error, imho. Then Dupont came out with Imron and PPG came out with Deltron and that was the name of that game. Those two paints took over and were much easier to use and they looked great....
