    Brief Car Story, Lucky Find In the 60's

    There is an older gentleman here in town. He has some cars, some are quite valuable, some are just cool. He has one that is both...to the extreme. He has one of the earliest Ferrari's imported into the States. In fact, the earliest street, non race, Ferrari. It is a 1949 "Tipo 166 touring". The...

    Big Day For The Monkey Farm!

    Monkey Girl, my daughter Sierra, pulled the lever, and signed her name... Brief history: Just about a year ago, an inmate posted about a family member getting an appointment to West Point. In passing, I told my daughter. She looked up everything she could, and a few months later says, "I want...

    "Borderland Beat"...Anyone Else Seeing What's Happening In The Friendly Country To The South?

    I know, the weather's great, beaches are nice and "they never mess with the tourist areas".... Borderland Beat is a site reporting news on cartels, drugs and human trafficking. A lot of it is written under alias, or anonymously...pretty understandable considering what happens to reporters there...

    Richard Torres-Estrada...Chief Of Diversity And Inclusion...USSOCOM!

    First off, USSOCOM doesn't need a social justice idiot. United States Special Operations Command, they've done pretty well for years, pretty damn inclusive. These are the best of the best. They will risk their lives, and give their lives, for their brethren, as well as us common folk they have...

    Take Care Of Your Kids, Pay Attention To Them And Others You Run Across...

    Posting this here, less of a chance of a fuktard response, and I think pretty related to covid. I don't live in a small town, not in the "Mayberry", Mid-West sense of the term. The "Quad Cities" is really more of four smaller towns and outlying areas. We have 5 high schools that I can think of...

    Machinist Guys, Whatsit Called?

    No pics, because I don't know what it's called. It's kind of an Acme thread/jack screw kind of deal. The "female" portion has ball bearings instead of threads, and the threaded portion of the screw is more of a ball milled helix type deal. I think they were good for weight and for keeping...

    Well, Bought Me A Prius...

    My man card has been revoked. One of my friends already said, "Well, it's a good thing you're married already" I don't know if he meant it meaning the questionable sexuality, or the no way in liqured up hell I'd get laid with wheels like this. It's an 06. Been driving it for about a week now...

    American Library Association...Committee on Equity, Diversity Inclusion and.....wait for it....Social Justice.

    So, I heard a blip on the radio, so went online to have a look around. The ALA, American Library Association now has themselves a committee that is to go through libraries, and look both at operations of facilities as well as literary works housed within. They are working to change, or remove...

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot...Soldiers Being Played?

    So, reading up on the "Stand Down" and various other things came to my attention. Some news popped up about 10lbs of C4 that came up missing at 29 Palms last week. Now, I'm sure this isn't the first time, but odd that it got press this time. I fear either an actual extremist is going to do...

    OB Idea, Maybe A Good One...

    So, Merc announcement thread got me thinking again. Me being a hot rod/car guy, I was drawn to the Seven Marine LS based concept. It's a motor that is pretty basic, but has some very good attributes. Now, their design is F'n complex. With complexities, comes more potential points of failure...

    News Headline "Disappeared"?

    Wife and I were talking about the BS inauguration. I showed her some pics of the soldiers with empty mag wells. Sad, to say the least. She proceeds to tell me that 12 soldiers were arrested. I said I had heard 12 or so were sent packing, due to their social media posts or connections to...

    First Post In The Dungeon: Mask Related

    WTF is wrong with people? There have been three incidents that I know of, since the BS "insurgency". It's like the mask nazis have been emboldened. At the local Goodwill last week, a maskless gentleman was held "hostage" by a mask nazi patron. Cops were called, and the man in his 50s was taken...

    Are Any Of You History Dorks, Like Me?

    I'm putting this here because of the tie in to BLM and Pantifa. If it's deemed political by the mods, by all means, move it to the dungeon. It's not meant to be Dem or Rep...just a short history lesson. I hope others will look more into it. Some of us had referenced the Pantifa folks as being...

    Memorial...and Outlaw Car Show.

    Yesterday I was back in California. Two weeks I was there for the funeral of my good friend Bill. Due to the current BS, few people can attend those things. Well, yesterday would have been his birthday. A rather small group of people came out to pay their respects. No notice was given on social...

    Schools Suck, County Medical Does Too

    :mad: This morning, at 7AM, our school board had an all hands on deck meeting. Yavapai County Health is shutting down all in person education, at least public, starting Monday! Prescott Unified...hippy little fuktards...shut down today. As dropped your kids off at school, pick them up at the...

    You Have Good Neighbor Folk...

    When ya'll get the flames put out before the first fire crew can get there! I'm babysitting the neighbor's shop...figuratively to put out fires while he's headed home from Glamis. Guy who lives across the road from me calls to let me know there's a fire in the field east of my house. Well, I...

    The Bravery Created...

    Much like the internet, people have now moved their "courage" to the real world. BLM/Pantifa individuals choose to attack those who are outnumbered, or even find isolated individuals. There was a story recently of a large firework, thrown into the dining patio to harm Trump supporters eating...

    Sub Question...Not Vehicle, Shop Building?

    Ok, 40x50 shop building. Metal with 17ft side walls. I currently have an older Sony head driving 2 Technics boxes with 15" subs. I believe the problem is the placement, they are high in the corners. Loud enough, audio is clear...just lacking a bit on the low end for those rare occasions I go...
