use
the tsl boggers,and the classes allowing cut tires they are running cut

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Re: Mini Gauges

Hello,
I am not sure if this applies to your 67 truck but maybe it can help. My
59 Ranchero, and I think many older vehicles, has a speaker mounted right
in the middle of the top of the dash. I am in the process of hinging the
factory speaker cover at the rear
and making a box that pops up on a gas spring, exposing about a 3" face
when in the up position. I was thinking of using those types of cabinet
catches that you push once to open, once more to latch. I think I will
mount a modern CD player in there as I don't want to mess up the dash which
has the stock AM unit, and a glove box install isn't really all that
practical as it would be hard to fiddle with while driving, and maybe
theives wouldn't think to look there for a radio. Anyways, this would be a
cool place for some pop up gauges as well. I saw a 56 fairlane (I think)
that had a similar set up and it was very slick and stealthy.
Hope this helps some.
Antonio.

>How 'bout Blue Nuts? Nah, sounds too painful. Any ideas
>Deacon?

Well it just so happens I have had this idea bouncing around in my
head. I was thinking a light blue fez with a blue oval with white trim
and FTE in white with a white tassel, around the rim have
www.ford-trucks.com
Time will come when we come up on a group of Chevy sissies and
they'll yell out "I'd rather push my Chevy than wear a stupid hat like
that" we'll smile pulling out our gray Johnny Rebs with the Blue Oval on
the crown and yell back "Well put your shoulders in it you Yankee
faggots and get back to Boston before we dig up that lyin' murderin'
home burnin' son of a gun and shoot him again. We are the Soldiers of
the New Confederacy and the only thing blue around here will be the
ovals on our Ford Trucks"! It's time to raise our flag with pride!

Note: It is necessary to disclaim any connection of these flags to
neo-nazis, red-necks, skin-heads and the like. These groups have adopted
this flag and desecrated it by their acts. They have no right to use
this flag - it is a flag of honor, designed by the confederacy as a
banner representing state's rights and still revered by the South. In
fact, under attack, it still flies over the South Carolina capitol
building. The South denies any relation to these hate groups and denies
them the right to use the flags of the confederacy for any purpose. The
crimes committed by these groups under the stolen banner of the
confederacy only exacerbate the lies which link the secession to slavery
interests when, from a Southerner's view, the cause was state's rights.

Or I like the baseball hat idea. :)

Subject: FTE 61-79 - Highboy's

Jeff & everyone interested, I tried to Email Jeff privately on the
Highboy prices but it got bounced. I've paid anywhere from 500.00 (
Rough body, blown head gaskets, and a knock but still running) to
2200.00 for a fair bodied
(some rust) and tired motor. So you're about right. Also someone was
asking about Highboy info (ie; what exactly is a Highboy, etc.) but I
don't have a copy of the post I made concerning this if someone has this
could they please repost it for me I don't want to have to type it all
over again. Thanks.
Dave Complete and Total FORDNUT, Highboy Nut, & FE Nut Too!!!!!!!!

You may not be aware of it, but according to Autoweek the latest Ferrari
show car is called (drumroll please).... The F-100! I fell right out of
my chair when I saw that! I would imagine that the follow up to that
will of course be the F-250!

Thanks Pa, if I ever lose my : again, I'll not sleep till I find it. I did
something even dumber to my pagemaster. I zipped up all my files like a good
little boy and sent them off, and guess what I forgot to do...just guess...I
forgot to name my main page index.htm. Came out the first time looking like
a picture site of ill repute thats been raided by the FBI, whoops.. I never
go to those places... I only read the articles, honest. You told me how to
name it, I know. Stu, can you bail me out of this one?

I never gave the link a thought, since I use Eudora freeware to compose my
posts and it doesn't support links. I have Netscape Mail and it does. I'm
used to Eudora, but maybe it's time to change over. Thanks.
