Corrected version:

Keith Veren:

Ford Truck: 99F-350 SuperDuty XLT / V-10 / 4X4 / Snowplow Kit / LS / 3.73
LS / Tow Package /Power Take-off / Auto trans / Dark Wedgewood Blue (looks
black or purple, depending on the light)

Ford Truck: 98 XLT Expedition / 5.4L / 4X4 Tow / Rear-Air / No LLS / 3.73
LS / Tow Package / Auto trans / Lighted running boards / Medium Wedgewood
Blue (good color)

Ford Truck: 98 Explorer XLT / 5.0L / ALL Wheel Drive All the Time (for the
wife) /
3.73LS / Tow Package / Moonroof / Mach Stereo / Electrochromatic Mirror /
Desert Tan (best color for hiding dirt)

Chevy Car: '65 Chevelle Malibu / 350 Built-to-the-tilt / Street-Strip Auto
/ Nice Original Grandma's interior / only ONE Cylinder in the master
cylinder for brakes, if a hydraulic line or wheel cylinder goes, you better
hope you tightened-up the emergency brake cable!!!! /
NO Seat Belts (I put them in) / Bright Blue

Chevy Car: '67-70 Hybrid Camaro where nothing worked or fit. Rust was
hidden everywhere, but it did have 4:10 posi gears, 12-inch rear wheels and
street slicks, and flw like a bat out of heck. Got most of my money out of
it, but it was funny because of the "non" front end alignment, the buyer had
to tow it on a flatbed to take it away. Black on Black (good color at
night).

Chevy Car: Mint 1967 RS/SS Camaro 396 4-Speed Muncie Trans / Original
Muncie Shifter that works great! / 12-bolt Posi Rear / Immaculate Deluxe
Interior w/Trim upgrade / No Crap hanging on the engine (A/C) except power
steering (you need it). Great body & paint. Only a few thousand made. I
love driving with two hands and two feet! Marina Blue / Bright blue
interior. (Great Color for shows)

Since by now most of the wives and husbands have been going, yea, right,
where do you get to keep all this stuff. Well, sadly, the '99 F-350 was
sold (I was made an offer I could not refuse).

We each use the other two Fords trucks (Linda the Explorer, Me the Expy) for
daily drivers. The '65 Chevy went when a guy at Illinois Car and Trucks and
I was talking (I was looking for a '67 Camaro) and I happened to mention
that I had a
'65 Chevelle-Malibu. He HAD to have it. He said he would send me a check
and a truck
to pick it up. He did. Gone. Kind of miss it, but the rear quarters were
solid bondo and the floors were getting very thin. Rear trans seal leaked
like a sieve. [Note: I disclosed all this, he still wanted it].

So we are now down to our daily drivers (Expy and Explorer) and my hobby
dream car, the SS/RS 396 4-speed Big-block 1967 Camaro. With 2 kids (6 and
3),
and my own business, my plate is full to the top. I do not know what I
would do if I still had all 6 vehicles!!

Anyway, Ford Trucks, Chevy Cars; a good combination. This way, I can keep
the whole economy running at an even level!

Keith

PS, sorry for the length of the post, and the re-printed correction of my
poor grammer, but I though Chevy needed some representation, at least in the
car arena!

Subject: Aftermarket/replacement seats

Well, after just over three years and 175,000 miles of my posterior wearing
down the padding, sitting in my captain's chairs of my 97 Expedition is
becoming rather like sitting on apple crates. It's about time to replace
them, but I don't really want to put new factory seats in, seeing as those
were never truly comfortable. My interior is the medium graphite, and the
chairs are cloth. Does anyone have experience with aftermarket seat
manufacturers - performance, installation ease/difficulty, overall feel,
quality, etc.? I would appreciate any advice or info.

Thanks
Terry

I've heard some good things about Raybestos QS (for "Quiet Stop") rotor pads.
They are based on a ceramic friction material (Raybestos specialty is friction
materials for brakes, trannies, etc etc) that creates NO appreciable BRAKE DUST
and are as the name implies, very QUIET. I wrote them to ask for a source and
the reply was:

"Kevin,

Use PGD679QS for your Ford Truck (my F-150). Call Raybestos for nearest
supplier 800 323
0354"

I haven't called yet (calling during business hours is tough with my work
schedule right now), but I'd be interested in what they have to say if anyone
else gets in touch with them. I understand that they are in the $150.00/set
price range. Their web site with more info is at

Do you have the crew cab? I have the same truck, crew cab and longbed,
and I need to speak with someone about an exhaust noise. But the truck
needs to be v10, crew cab, 4x4, auto and a California model. The noise
is because the converter is located to close to the y-pipe at the
motor. Ford won't fix it. I'd like to know if anyone else has this
noise and if they've gotten anywhere with Ford. Let me know. Thanks.

Good Day:

Does any one know where to buy a leather seat cover for a 1999 F250 4x4 SC/SB 60/40 split bench cloth seat? I am afraid I will wear out the drivers seat before the rest and would like to find nice custom fitted leather or vinyl seat covers.

Thanks, Ian...

I realize this is not the best antenna for a CB but I can't stand drilling a hole anywhere. I want to route the antenna wire under the plastic trim on the drivers side but I don't know how to remove this trim with out damaging it. Any tips would be welcomed! Also the antenna directions say not to mount to any glass with a metal foil in it. I have the extra dark factory tint in my windows, is this tinting plastic or metal film? I have entertained the thought of mounting the CB to the ceiling of the cab but rounting power up there and removing the headliner look like a nasty task.
