Subject: 1976 F-150 Ford For Sale

Hey guys, I still have a '76 F-150 Ranger XLT for sale if anybody's
interested. It's a single cab, 390 V8, C-6 Automatic, Long Wide Bed, Runs
great. It does need a new battery and starter, but will start and run.
Interior is in great condition. Exterior is good except for a dent at the
passenger side front side marker and the top of the tailgate. I'm asking
$800.00. Email me if interested. I do have pics. I also would be interested
in selling my '55 F-600 Custom- make me an offer and I have a '87 F-150 XLT
Extended Cab, 351 V8, Automatic for $1800.00. I'm just trying to open up room
for more projects! Oh and by the way, I also have an old Cortez Motorhome
that I need to get rid of. It's on a D*dge chasis. Not a lot of people even
remember what those are, but if you do, its kinda neat.

Subject: Del-City electrical supplies



Hi all- somebody on the "Galaxie list" mentioned Del City a while back
for electrical supplies.
I called for a catalog and received it within the week. (800-654-4757)
I've been going thru it to write up my order and I'm pretty impressed.
They have a lot of stuff in there you can't find at Auto-Zone, NAPA, etc.
The prices are VERY good also. (ATC {spade type} fuse boxes- $3 - $6, ISO
relays, like you need for your headlight conversions- $2.63 ) Also molded
connecters, tons of toggle and push button switches, etc. The only
catches are a $25.00 min order, which isn't that bad if your doin much.
They take all the common charge cards also. Happy hunting, Phil

Subject: ADMIN: Survey conclusions


I'd like to thank everyone who took part in the Ford Truck
Enthusiasts mailing list user survey.  We had roughly 250
surveys completed.

Part of the reason why I conducted the survey is because the
lists eat up a significant amount of bandwidth yet bring in
zero in revenue (or so it appeared).  That's not to say that
the lists are all about money, they aren't..... but....
our bandwidth fees are paid for in 50 gigabyte chunks and we
just bumped up to yet another level on bandwidth.

The conclusions of the survey:

a) A significant percentage of users (of those who responded)
  visit the site often.
b) Nearly 20% of the list users don't know what Club FTE is.
  I'm planning on explaining this in detail in a few days.
c) Most users maintain a great deal of loyalty, staying
  subscribed for long periods.
d) Most users don't buy from FTE.  If that's simply a matter
  of preference, that's fine.  We're not twisting anyone's
  arms nor expecting users to buy from us.  If it is a matter
  of lack of selection, we'll address that.  Expect another
  survey in the next few days to address this.  We want to
  serve our users in the best way we can.
e) The majority of the users find the lists to be helpful.  You
  can thank each other for that.  You're a great bunch willing
  to share knowledge and help each other!
f) The majority of the users have saved money as a result of
  using the lists.  Again, thank each other!
g) A significant minority (21%) of the users have purchased
  from each other.  Everyone benefits from this, I know I've
  found items through users that I would have otherwise had
  a difficult time locating.
h) A majority of the users have used the advice of others for
  making purchases.  Knowledge is power.
i) The majority of the users find the lists to be an asset.
j) Most users don't want advertising but find it acceptable so
  long as it supports the lists.  I'll make sure that if the
  issue of on-going advertising occurs that I will address
  concerns.

Overall, I was surprised by the responses.  Not only are the
lists an asset to the users, but they are more of an asset to
FTE than I imagined.  FTE will do what it can to improve the
lists, including setting up a part-exchange list of some sort
in the near future.  I will also be setting up a suggestion box
soon for feedback.

Thanks!

===============================

Dennis,

Forget JC Whittney if you want a Genuine Ford Made Grille Shell, they
don't handle the first FORD MADE part of anykind! They are 100%
aftermarket. Dennis Carpenter on the other hand would have the Genuine Ford
brand part. Just make sure you ask for the real McCoy.

I just ran the part number through Ford last month and it still showed
available then. That dosen't mean it wasn't just dropped though. The number
is: D8TZ-8200A and has a Retail price of $204.60 through Ford. Dealer Cost
is $122.76 .  If your positive your dealer checked this number then I would
call one of the many dealers around the country that still shows having
some in stock and have them UPS one out to you. I'm not sure where you live
but here is a few that has stock:

HARROLD FORD in CA 1-800-244-8355
LEE JARMON FORD in TX 1-800-444-6650
RUSTY ECK FORD in KS 1-800-999-2760
H.P. SMITH FORD in NE 1-800-228-7149
MAGIC CITY MOTOR in VA 1-800-221-7472
MID STATES FORD in IA 1-800-747-2744
PALS FORD in IN 1-888-772-2181

Any one of these dealers will be more than happy to ship the Grille right
to your door as long as you pay the freight. Let us know how you make out!

Good Luck!!

Thanks for the help guys, I appreciate it.  I'll just have to see about the
whole 'using the old shell' part.  Thanks for the tips Darryl, sounds like
that would make it easier.

i have used many types at work (aviation), the ones i always
thought were good were digital and snap-on. we've gotten some no
name items from uor supply system and they would sometimes last
for a few years and them fail cal specs.  the basic rule of
thumb when it comes to tools is: you get what you pay for.
