Re: Real Firetruck BBQ Grill Tailgate Food Truck

100 ft ladder would be great for cutting tree branches. But where on earth would you park the thing when not in use... Don't get me thinking how to justify the purchase of one!

Re: Wanted to Buy - a black XR4TI stick or automatic

I have a 1966 fiberglass body car, tubular chassie mid engine vintage race car / street car as a possible trade option or just cash. If you have any more info on this-- what it is, even-- I'm sure that would help. Good luck with your search. I've always felt that the black color is the best for thi...

I have always thought they were ahead of their time for style and aerodynamics as a feature of the core design and now they look more or less normal Grilles Gone Wild these days, so they're still not really normal. When EVs become commonplace, then a Merkur will look more like a regular car. And yo...

Re: XR4Ti Fallacy Thread

There's 2000-3000 "missing" cars that are hidden away someplace. Never titled, never registered, and they all run and drive. There are probably 2000-3000 missing cars currently under tarps in back yards that are probably not titled (correctly) and definitely not registered. oops that is a truth... ...

You can put a higher number and say it's negotiable, or a lower number and say that it's firm. But it's a...
