Subject: FTE 97up - California get together

Hello List Members,

There has been some discussion the 61-79 list of having a get together
somewhere in California. At this point in time, I do not know where, or
when it would take place. Right now I am trying to gather some information
so we can try and pick a date and location for the get together. So, I
need your help.

Question one.
I would like to know how many people would be willing to attend this get
together, if they can.

Question two.
Can anyone suggest a time and place in California that we could have this
get together. It would be nice if we can do this in conjunction with some
other Truck event that is happening then. Such as a Truck show, swap meet
or something.

Would you please email me privately, to help keep the list traffic down, at
herbie netvalue.net with your responses. When you respond, please include
the city you reside in with your response. This information will be kept
confidential.


Thank you !

But, exhaust brakes are on the intake side of the engine, aren't they? Basically it's like
having the throttlebody butterflies on a gasser engine.

Lance:
I have just taken delivery of my first Ford Product. I have been a
Chevy owner for many years and didn't think anyone would make a better
truck. Wrong.!!
My new Ford is a SD 550 Crew Cab 4X4 and I am installing a pickup bed
to meet my needs.
Engine 7.3 with 6 speed.I have my own fuel tank with no meter yet,
but the milage is not bad but you have to watch RPM's and speed since the
only gear ratio is 4.88.
Trans gear ratio's and power are awsome. I just installed an air ride
suspention (not air bags) and smoothed out the ride.
so far I can't say enough about this truck. More after bed installation
and some loads are haued,
hopefully next week.
Ford definately had a better idea this time.
If you want more info let me know.
Get a bid from Debbie Brown at Damerow Ford in Beaverton Or. by e-mail
if you want.
No one beat her price on my truck. 6 e-mail bidsin all.

Good luck:

Bob I
