Goodbye to the green machine

The 96 Tracer has a new owner. Yesterday I was prepping the car for a trip to Denver. Elle and Adam Lloyd were going to ride with Alvie and me to find a car. After I loaded tools, rotated tires and made it clean, a thought came to me. Why drive 285 miles in a... Continue Reading →


 Besides leaving my fishing rod at the lake it was a nice day last Saturday for a fishing trip to the secret location. Mike ran back up and got my rod back. I've never caught more than two fish a trip at this place but I threw back four and kept these two. The light... Continue Reading →

But this little guy came in to say hi, hopped back into the laundry room and waited for the Mr. Alexander Alouicious... Continue Reading →

Then he said something about not liking Ford trucks because 9 out of 10 sold in Phoenix had... Continue Reading →

Ford Truck

One piece at a time

What can I say? It has a lot of rust. A little bit at a time will get it done. I have a cherry picker coming next week. I need to pull the 4.0 liter from the Jeep, get the other one from Gary Messano's Jeep and then take the 302 out of the truck.... Continue Reading →
