I need to lose some weight, otherwise I would qualify. You have wireless in the garage, right? tongue.gif

Speaking of, these little plinkers are things of beauty:

Not to mention Emma wanting to stick her finger you know where.  Set up web cams!

Also important, make sure to keep Emma away from rabbit turd.  She doesn't know what it is yet, so she's going to analyze it with her "tricorder" and that would be bad.

Yeah - Rugers are nice! I like the heavy barrel versions. I have a Browning Buckmark that I've owned for many years. Of course, mine doesn't have all the cool mods of those Rugers...

Mine is just like this one:

Mecum auction in Indy has started. Good time to get some cheap classics. How cheap? Well, they just sold a nice 1941 Plymouth PT125 Pickup for 14.5.

http://www.mecum.com/auctions/lot_detail.cfm?LOT_ID=SC0513-152407&entryRow=9&lottype=&startRow=1

A `72 Pantera (1st year) resto candidate coming up in a few lots, going for that one.

My Dad had a late 40s International pickup (red of course!) - I suspect you would have loved that sucker. I know I wish I had it now.
It looked just like this one (only not so shiny!) I think it was a column shifter, but I might be mis-remembering. I do remember that the clutch was sort of tricky - it had to be ALL the way to the floor to get it to shift without grinding - which was really hard for me to do when I was 13 or 14. I also remember that if you could drive that thing, you could probably drive any manual transmission on the planet.



This article is on the 3/4 ton KB-2, but I think they were pretty much the same.

I think we sold it in the 70s for a couple of hundred dollars. redface.gif

Great car, horrible wheels.

Did you buy the Pantera? Looks like it went for $38K: http://www.mecum.com/auctions/lot_detail.cfm?LOT_ID=SC0512-126841

My thoughts too, awful wheels.

Well, I paid more than I wanted to pay for that Pantera. I got into a little bidding war with someone in attendance, not sure why. Will make a nice project, though.

Billy will be happy, I bought my first vette, a `63 L76 conv. A little rough but hard to pass up for $35k. Will make a cool resto-mod w/ 4WDB, new suspension, and engine work.

Did you see this one? Not exactly a DD or road track car, but it might be fun on a Saturday night...
http://www.mecum.com/auctions/lot_detail.cfm?LOT_ID=SC0512-126321

I'll bet this thing would handle like a pig - and would probably also overheat and blow a head gasket:
http://www.mecum.com/auctions/lot_detail.cfm?LOT_ID=SC0512-133114

I don't know what these go for, but this seems cheap, no?
http://www.mecum.com/auctions/lot_detail.cfm?LOT_ID=SC0512-126840

This is most definitely NOT cheap:
http://www.mecum.com/auctions/lot_detail.cfm?LOT_ID=SC0512-126533

This would be my car!!!

I like the red Pantera better than the yellow one! And yeah - I love the C2 'Vette - definitely my favorite 'Vette.
post #2999 of 9498
I really need to get my Trail 70 restored. This thing went for $1700! I think mine is also a '70.
