  1. I use rechargeable batteries in my flashlight that can be recharged by my buggy's cigarette lighter, Just remember to fully recharge the on the way to the beach and you're good to go!
  2. I had it's twin but a hardtop, 327, 4 speed, 370 posi.
  3. You are going to pay top dollar, car prices are thru the roof right now.
  4. OK, I had a similiar problem that was driving me nuts, my mechanic finally found it, underneath the negative cable (where it was bolted to the engine) was very rusty, causing an iffy ground, it looked clean and he only found it after unbolting the cable from the engine.
  5. I live in a small town, mostly mom & pop stores, almost all the stores require a mask.
  6. I've bought the Harbor Fright Pittsburgh air pump for $10, bought the extended warranty for another $10, someone let the air out of my grandson's Honda Accord tires, (angry girlfriend?), took about 4 1/2 to 5 minutes per tire, it was a little warm when we were done, but it did the job, I had the engine running the whole time we were airing up.
  7. You can't stand up without making noises.
  8. I snagged something, put up a pretty good fight, took me 10 minutes to reel it in, turned out to be a white beach towel, my buddies were hysterical with laughter!
  9. My neighbor gave me an old Ariens when he moved to Florida several years ago. It ran fine until the impellor stopped turning, so I decided to get rid of it. I put it on Craigslist with a couple of pictures and the response was overwhelming! One guy wanted to know the serial # and he told me where to find it. The # was 0000001 and turns out it was one of the first Ariens every made! He made me promise not to sell it to anyone else until he got there. Well, 2 other guys showed up and there was a bidding war and I sold it for $450 and originally wanted $100 for it! Turns out is was the holy grail of Arien snow blowers!
  10. Penn reels are handed down from generation to generation, they are easy to work on, parts are plentiful & cheap too!
  11. I've seen some compressors mounted on the ROOF of the house!
  12. We married young, had 3 kids by the time we were 30. We decided that was it, we were done, but I kept putting it off. At age 32 wife said she was 6 weeks late. I immediately made an appointment and got snipped. Wife just skipped a month. We are now 70, kids in their early 40's and a slew of grandkids, wouldn't have it any other way.
  13. If you watched the JFK/Nixon debate on tv, Kennedy was tan, loose and completely at ease, Nixon was ashen, tense and nervous, on tv, Kennedy won, if you listened on the radio, Nixon won, go figure!
  14. Payment received, thank you Catch This, Tim and SOL!
  15. For sale: Three Tire Buddy II deflators, about 15 years old but work fine, pre-set at 12 lbs. $25 shipped, paypal ok.
  16. Nobody puts baby in the corner!
  17. Catch, I sent you a pm with my info, thanks, sea jay
  18. Love that front end that flips open, your dad must have been one hell of a fabricator!
  19. If you're looking for more of those aftermarket halogen lights, Ollies has them for $3 each1
  20. Get a piece of cheese, (I like to use a piece of cheese string) but it doesn't really matter, and tie it to the trap with a piece of sewing thread. The mouse will eventually try and move/tug and/or pickup up the cheese causing the trap to spring, works like a charm!
  21. I like how the guy jumps into the car and slams the door shut leaving the woman carrying the child to fend for themselves,,,,,real brave!
  22. I had the same problem with my Blazer, took off the window switch and found the gasket under the switch had broken apart and pieces of it had jammed under the switch preventing the switch from rolling down 2 of the windows. I removed the rest of the old gasket and made a new one out of cardboard from a box of cereal.
  23. If that cap is fiberglass I wouldn't put a lot of weight in that tent.
  24. if you have a trailer hitch they make a set that goes right into your hitch, or another set that goes around the hitch if you use the hitch. Plus, you can plug them right into your trailer hitch wire harness ( if you have one). Check fleabay for them.
