Sgt, I'd like to add a comment on this 'phone driving'. Not only are you taking your eyes and hands away from driving, you are taking away your brain, even on a hands free. If the phone call excites any of your emotions, you will be distracted from driving, and ----- you will make poor decisions.

texting on the phone while driving is stupid as sight seeing while driving. talking on a hands free system is no different then you talking to your passengers or singing to the radio while driving. we have all been talking for years.

Agreed for sure.... What boggles my mind is that they don't even really go over it in drivers education more than brush over it... THAT really amazes me.... Matter of fact, the other day I saw the drivers ed teacher out with a student using his phone... I stopped him later on giving him how I felt about that conduct in front of the student driver.... it was like I was making such a big deal about nothing... then I said something about a citation and that got his attention...

Tucked well behind my preferred parts distributor, 50 feet off the paved apron. (I'm guessing, it's been tagged by a delivery truck in it's past. )


I didn't stop in to suggest, "I'd strip the paint, chop it, channel it and stuff a blown big block in it."





In front of my office today, waiting for the train to pass... could use a little rake adjustment and some extra RUBBER on those wheels... anyhow, the body and paint looked very well done and it sounded evil as a mother... in... law.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Agreed! I believe our forum friend (Blue Eyed Devil) calls it a five window coupe. (Sorry, BED... I couldn't resist!)

As traffic pictures go, I often see a cool Divco delivery van... near as I can tell, he sells and/or distributes... something. Sooner or later, I'll corner him and get a shot or three...

I like your sass Dr. C, keep it up

I've got a neighbour that either distributes or buys something on a regular basis... If it's the same something you're referring to... But he doesn't drive anything cool.

LOL. I'm not talking Cheech and Chong, though he might be in that business as well.

I caught up with the Divco today. He's (obviously) an AMSOIL dealer and he drives it year 'round...
