A new set of wheels/tires for the E-cat!
At my local Sat nite hang out, The Malt Shop in Anna TX, last weekend I was talking with a "rod buddy" about his "new"36 Ford and he was saying that he wasnt turned on by the wheels that he had on the rod, asked if I was interested. I said yes so we agreed on an ridiculously low price, ($200). He just called and told me they were sitting in my driveway. Damn! I hate it when that happens-hehehehehe!
They are polished outlawII's by American. rear is 15X8 4.5" backspacing w MTDogbonz on them, and I dont know what size the fronts are but they are much narrower than the rear with goodyear rubber. The rubber is brand new looking on all four, spinner center caps and lugs are with them.
I cant wait to get home today!

My 'lil clevor has a rather unsightly oil leak coming from the rear main seal... Which is going to be a serious pain in the rear to fix. After shutting down I can count on at least 3-4 tablespoons of oil on the ground.

That and the little kiddies is keepin' me away from playin with the boys... Well that and I need a heftier cam for the clevor...

Sigh...

Pick a couple of knowledgeable friends and a saturday and have a thrash session. (Hint Hint) I built the civil utilities for half of Flower Mound, I know how to get there...and proud to help!
My Chevy tools fit them Fords too, no matter how strange they look! hehehehe!

I dont know about now, but I bet that in about 16 years you wont mind your little girls to be sitting between Doug and myself, You know those social summertime events where all the little backwards hat, baggie britches boys hang out! hehehehe!
Yeah buddie I can see it now!

I think in the case of the leak, the pain the ass factor will exceed the "willing to pay someone" factor... :)

I absolutely refuse to consider what life will be like when the twins are 16... Oh my god...Even typing that sentence was too much for me to consider... :eek2:
