  3. Clements, California Tailgate BBQ 11th Annual

    They were so desperate for trucks to come, TIM loaded his trailer to go get this truck that was involved in a garage fire. The truck backfired and from all the gas that was passed from the people looking at the truck. NOW you know the rest of the story. LOL
  4. Clements, California Tailgate BBQ 11th Annual

    This was my 1st outing and my last in 2012. It was the most unorganized show that I have been to in my 45 years of doing car events. People were rude falling down drunk. The hamburgers taste like a week old White Castle. You had to relieve yourself in the back 40s. The music was being piped in from a vacuum tube 50s radio. Evan had a starving HOARSE starting to eat the back end of a pickup truck!!!! Evan had an eagle flying around pooping on people and would fly in and take the hamburger out of your hand. We had a hurricane come through and took out the tent that provided the shade from the 120 heat. They give away pistons from a blown up engine for trophies etc etc etc!!! On the last but least NOTE!! They even had a fire pit that somehow they dug a 200 ft hole and the people they did not like, they pushed them in to see if they could hear a thump. OK!! I'm back on my MEDS!! SHOULD I SAY MORE!!! THIS WILL BE MY 6TH YEAR GOING. WOULD NOT MISS IT FOR NOTHING. ITS THE GREATEST SHOW ON Earth!! The only statement that is true in the small black print was the starving hoarse eating the truck. lol!!!!

    Look at the amateur weld on the front dump. This was common in its day.

  10. 1948 dodge custom needing engine rebuild d24 engine

    Manuals do not tell you how to rebuild.
  11. 1948 dodge custom needing engine rebuild d24 engine

    It is rocket science. You would not believe the shabby work that comes through our doors from other machine shops. Just saying. We have shops that grind cranks and they do not clean the oil galleys, that is one little example. Rods installed wrong. Cam bearings installed wrong. Piston ring gaps and side clearance not set to specs. Bores not parallel or decks ground at an angle. I could go on and on. STOP!!
