Nice. I’ve still got my ash American strat. Now if I had time to play it.
Hold onto it man you won’t regret it. Time and always being greasy keeps me playing it as much as I would like to. Don’t think I’ve progressed since I was in high school impressing the ladies
Yeah, I’ll not get rid of it. There is a hilarious story that goes along with the purchase. Let’s just say it was a graduation present to myself and my now wife was convinced that I’d never buy her the necessary hardware. I think she still scowls at it.
I love Les Paul guitars.
Of course mine is as it says.
Little over a year ago I was looking for a F250 or F350 to do my occasional towing needs, even cross country if the need arises.
I wanted something simple that I could build and maintain. I didn't really want something too new that I had to pay someone else to work on. (I'm kind of old school)
A guy at church had an 84 F250 6.9 T-19, 3.54 rear with 90k miles.
Wasn't running, and he didn't have the place, time, money to work on it.
He didn't want to get rid of it as his grandfather bought it new.
This is my first diesel project and with the sharing of knowledge by folks on this site, I will be reassembling this engine in the next few weeks.
Hopefully I'll have it road worthy by thanksgiving.
Only get to work on it a couple hours a day.
I have my eye on a 94 F250 CC long bed 7.3 manual and a 95 F350 single cab steel bed 7.3 manual transmission just waiting for the owners to decide to sell.
Here are pics of the hoopty the day I went to look at it.
that is awesome, it sounds like something i would do. i was never one to be good at playing the dating game. i am glad i am married when i hear about the struggles of my single friends at this age lol
The buggy in the avatar has a vw bus engine, I was one of the first to see the potential of these, they were also used in the VW type 4 car.
When I started using this username I had an 01 7.3, dad had a 95 and a 2000, and mom had a 2012 6.7. Three generations of powerstrokes on the farm seemed to fit. The 98 is my birth year. I think that makes me one of the younger guys here.
I used to be a huge partier back in the day. I was the guy who made and still does make everyone laugh, the kid that did anything he was told he couldn't do. I was just known as KEVO!!!!!!!! everywhere I went , even people I didn't know knew me.... andddd time to deflate! now I don't drink but a few times a year and rarely go out.... home life with gf my dog and her daughter.
I just have the imagination of a rock haha. Loved reading these stories

Yea 4 point harness that are way to big, the extra hangs over the side. I had just the lap belts latched. Shoulders only get done if I am getting into more than I should. Lol
So the story for the dirty pearl is after a trip to the sand dunes with a few buddy's we were on our way home a buddy of mine who had been drinking a bit to much threw a beer out the window well some one called the cops and discribed my truck as a land ship flying a jolly Rogers (buggy whip on my bike) full of pirates lol when we got pulled over the cop laughed when he found out we were all divers that 2 days before got off a boat in the gulf so the cop named the truck the ole dirty pearl as he wrote stupid a littering ticket
