    Interesting photos I have run across.

    Up here, we call them Prairie Oysters.

    Bob Drown

    Terrible news. Bob was also one of the first people to welcome me here as well. He sent me a 6 volt fan that attached to the steering wheel and blew on the windshield. He was a great addition to this group and a friend to many. His family has my thoughts. Neil

    Great Grandpa's Truck. It's time.

    He mentions that he drug it down from Canada. I believe all Canadian engines were the 25” block.

    Shaune, Don’t give up yet. You are close. I still need that side by side picture of our cars. I am surprised that you have the ball and trunnion U Joints. My 50 Dodge had the regular U Joints, they crossed over to an early Corvette number. Good Luck Neil

    Show your Goodies!

    Doesn’t make it go faster, but I think it’s cool. And you don’t have to open the hood to see it.

    Changing jobs after 25years

    Congratulations on the new job. I made a similar move 16 years ago when my boys were young. I left a construction/Maintance job where I had apprenticed as an electrician and had been there for almost 17 years. I was on a large research project and they offered me a position, the only catch was that it started as a term. My wife and I had several discussions about the risk vs reward. I took the job and it was the 2nd best decision I made, the best decision I made was proposing to my wife.

    riding season

    I have a hybrid bicycle as well. I ride to work as much as possible, weather permitting. Usually April 1 to November 1, bus in winter. About 3.5 miles each way, mostly trails. At 7 miles per day I average about 700 to 800 miles a season. Parking where I work is about $80 a month, that money goes in my "Toy" account.

    I Can’t Help Falling In love...1951 Dodge

    +1 to dpollo He helped me out with my 1950 Dodge as well. He gave me some valuable advice and with his help my car went from a _O_GE on the front hood to a DODGE.

    Electricians: What Is This In My Shop?

    All right, finally a question I know something about. Back in the day, most services were 60 amps or less. The load miser was usually hooked up so the stove took precedence over the dryer. Supper was more important than dry clothes. Not sure about elsewhere, but they were very common in Saskatchewan. I have seen/removed many in my 30 years of electrical work. They are no longer necessary in most applications, but they work well.
