    Techron and PEA

    "Deep cleans in one tankful" ??? I used to think that too. I thought Techron and Gumout Regane were the best of the best. After looking at several Youtube videos where they were tested and examined by a borescope, there was minimal, and I mean very minimal improvements after two consecutive...

    STICKER SHOCK!

    It does not have to be. Here, and many other place a "cheap house' is $150,000.

    STICKER SHOCK!

    Actually I bought a new 2019 RAM Classic extended cab for just over 1/4 that Fords price. YES I know its an apples to oranges comparison, so I get that. My RAM has some upgrades, like Del Monico Red paint, alloy wheels, chrome trim, etc. Beautiful truck that rides like a dream, I drove it out...

    Peace of mind from driving a beater?

    '85 Ford Ranger. Bare bones stock, crank windows, not even an A/C. Bought it with 80K miles on it for $1800. Worked it LIKE A DOG for four years, carried waaay too much weight in it at times. Also commuted 65 miles one way to work everyday. Drove it for four years and another 80K miles, then...

    Professional sport that can have the oldest players still playing competitive?

    Dana Torres set World Records spanning 1983 to 2000. Think about that. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dara_Torres

    Professional sport that can have the oldest players still playing competitive?

    Ah, the Snake... Back in 1980 a reporter interviewed a Houston Oiler lineman, asking him what the difference was between Snake Stabler and Gifford Nielsen quarterbacking the Oilers. (Nielsen was a Mormon from BYU, the polar opposite of Snake.) The lineman said, its what you smell in the huddle...

    My trans finally blew

    I dunno. The trans shop put it in without telling me first. I doubt BG had anything to do with it.

    My trans finally blew

    Bought it at 200K miles. Previous owner "drove it like a car" and I believe him. Bed and body and interior all in near top shape for its age. Told me he drove it from Houston to Illinois and back often. No reason to not believe him. He also told me oil and all other fluids were serviced...

    Hy Grandpa, What's For Supper? (HEE-HAW)

    Gloom, despair, and agony on me... Deepest dark depression, excessive misery... If it wasn't for bad luck, I would have no luck at all... Gloom, despair, and agony on me... LOL The funny thing was my parents were really polar opposites. Mom was a "well bred" of European decent, Dad was a Cajun...

    My trans finally blew

    No third gear. After about 25-30 mph the engine screams but won't upshift any more. The rpms go to 5K-6K. I took a video of it on my phone and showed it to the guy at the trans shop and he immediately said I lost 3rd.

    I have the utmost respect for what Dave Hess has accomplished. Daves success has been nothing short of mind boggling.

    Rebuild. I will check about adding a cooler (if I don't already have one).

    My trans finally blew

    Yes, I had to think about it, but the Avalanche is in good overall condition, so I narrowly decided to rebuild.
