Subject: blue oval and url request

I Tried once before but I think my server ate my message.....

I'm looking for a copy of a bmp or pcx file of the shiny Ford blue
oval. The one with the chrome ring and lettes over a blue background.
I need it suitable for wallpaper or screen saver or at least
enlargeable. Anybody got one to share ???

Also, ( and I hate to ask this here, but you guys know EVERYTHING) I
need the address of a discussion group that can handle CHE*Y
problems...much like this one for Fords. Got a friend who needs some

If you have an address and wish to remain annonymous to this
group...reply directly to me at jniolon

I guess knowing addresses of Chevy sites is kinda like having a sister
working in a house of ill repute... you'de just as soon not let it be
known to everybody you know, isn't it

thanks in advance

If you want gearing for highway driving, Iwould suggest that instead
of looking for a different rear end set up that you investigate an
overdrive. There have been a number of articles in This Old Truck,
Classic Auto Restorer and How To Restore Your Ford Pickup (Tom
Brownell) that cover this option. Good luck in your search.

Subject: What is that hood ornament?

In the Feb '98 Classic Trucks (the one with a red 64 chevy being buffed
out-"paint body basics")on page 42 is a neat red F100.

My question is what is that hood ornament? Is that an option, from a
different vehicle (which), etc? I never saw one before; since I don't
get around like many of you, I thought I'd ask.
thanks, Paul

I havn't seen much response to you question, so here's some something to
look at. Next time you see a big highway truck,(and it's not moving!!) look
behind the front bumper. All these big trucks have tilt fronts and front
bumpers. I'm not saying that you want that kind of system but it is a place
to look for ideas.
