All I know is from what I have seen Pugsy do with houses, frames, body fab and now motors, if I need my frigging gall bladder removed I am giving him a call! It will be a better job than I can get at the typical hospital that's for sure!

Up here, we have the Newfies. There are plenty of Newfie jokes similar to redneck jokes.

In a negative context, labeling someone based on the color of their skin is what I said it is. You've used the wrong slur to indicate stupid, theres another one for that. Redneck does not define a geographical area. Go ride your malamute and chug another jug of pancake syrup.


Best I can do on a dreary Monday.

Br'er Pugsy-

That was too dry, it ain't been a bad day. I'll share a true story with you about five young rednecks sitting in a circle around a rectangular coffee table in a small apartment on a hot north Texas afternoon thirty and two year ago. Talking about cars, spreading manure with the vigor that only twenty somethings with beer can, and laughing it up. The old Quaker State conversation was in full swing when we realized that, to our amusement, no two of us pronouned the word oil the same. Theres the relevant thread, regional dialects and how specific and varied the regions can be.

Of course, three were born Texans.

Kevin of Grand Prairie said erl.

Greg of S. Dallas said awl.

Tracy of Amarillo said oil.

Ron from Chicago said oyl.

Matt from Natchitoches said oll.


Funny, the things we remember. Wait what was I just talking about?

You guys can put any connotation on it you want but David and I can tell you this. Down here in Georgia and Tennessee, we consider it a compliment to being called a red neck.....yup, my first mansion had wheels on it?

John, I live about the same distance from the equator as you guys. I'm an ArkLaTexan raised in south Kansas, and I bought myself a belt buckle that said REDNECK when I was 12. But the way people use the word has changed during our lifetime. By it's current meaning as Pugsy used it, "shadetree" is how I interpreted it. My comment was all I could conjure. As Brian might say "Thats how his (mine) mind works.". No big whoop.

It means farmer.

Pugsy's plumbing ain't redneck no more than my cars are junk. Guys like you two who have explored and conquered all areas of classic cars right before my eyes, at least in pics, deserve a lot of respect for it. Best way I know to show that is to write like I would speak to you, since I know you from here. But I realize theres a reason I'm single. Not real tolerable.

I got out and did an official 5 minutes in on my truck. I am getting stuff ready to be powder coated and tied these parts together in groups. I drilled a rivet out of the front bumper brackets so they could be properly powder coated.

I also got a few more things that I know will not be used ready to sell.
a couple of days ago I ordered up my primer from SPI and bought a few parts I needed on ebay. I also measured and weighed the front axle and all the components I will be sending to SIDS for dropping and mods. Going to have them do the whole thing, install the spindles and all, modify all the steering components and buy the new drag link and tie rod from them. That way it's all ready to go, done deal.

Brian

Looks like a lot more than 5 minutes work there! (At the speed I move lately, that'd be more like 2 hours!)

Working on templates for AC brackets. Found some photos and some dimensions showing where they mount the center of the compressor in relation to the center of the water pump.

Mmm, beef. Dead cow, not beef cake.

Hey so um... find some outdated case of chewing gum for them young'uns and you won't need near as many zip ties to hold the popsicle sticks. Hell, I'm looking at it and wondering why hose clamps won't work.

Ok, ok...

Boy I need to do something to a car and make a legit post. Da 'P been blinking low wash at me, theres something I can handle.

Agree Pop Sickle sticks, with Hot Glue.

PS, I purchase a low mount AC bracket kit with the idler. Was easier as I've already too many other brackets and ETC to Fab.
