Your internet boost add is very irritating.  When I tried to view
"scooter" the internet boost add kept appearing.  If I tried to close it
or ignore it the add kept poping up.  Please remove it from your
advertising and only use adds like this if you have the choice to view
them or not.

This isn't my ad.  We resell ads through  We
don't have any choice over the individual ads they resell
though we can complain about specific ads.

You can't close it because its not a dialog box.  You
caught by a classic "warning ad" that tries to look like
a windows box with an "ok" and "close" button.  In reality
its just a banner graphic like any other ad (we don't
serve pop up ads).  Ad companies figured out a long time
ago that making an ad look like a windows dialog box tricks
a high number of people into clicking on the ad.  So long
as people keep clicking them, companies will keep designing
them. I just ignore ads with buttons like that.

Date: Thu, 9 Nov 2000 14:32:34 -0600

I had the chasis work done on my '53 and was getting ready to dive, albeit
reluctantly, into the body work when I found a guy who was almost finished
with a ground up resto on his '53 who decided at the end of the project he'd
rather work on a '35 Dodge sedan.  The chasis was redone well, but not quite
to my liking.  Although its been lowered 3" and has been set up for P/S, it
retained the original spring suspension and drum brakes (although everything
was rebuilt/replaced).  The old body (minus the fenders/running boards) I
had on mine was in decent shape for it's age, but would certainly take some
work to finish.  Anyway, I've got that chasis/body for sale.  If anyone is
interested, please E-mail me off-list and I can give you the specifics.  The
big joy though was shaving months off the completion time by letting someone
else do the body work for me and selling to me at the cost of the

Hooked up the heater that came with my '50, and definately is not right.
Looks like the generic heater in the Sac-ford catalog. Can anyone send me a
picture of a complete original heater for a '50? As for the ignition
cylinders that I have, looks like most are '53-60 and some are newer than
that. Ford part #'s would be the best way to identify.

Glad to be of some small help. It's been my experience that many Ford
gauges are wacky, and as you know Flatmotors seem to have a reputation
to uphold as to overheating. I once dissolved a radiator with a cleaning
solution then found the sender was wrong. Since this unfortunate event
that caused me to run a GM Harrison radiator in a Ford, I've been a big
believer in thermometers, which I dip in the radiator or wrap in a rag
on a hose. It makes one's life so much simpler to KNOW what the
temperature is rather than what a 50 year old semiaccurate gauge is

I won't go into details, but I'm asking all the Ford Truck
Enthusiasts list members to please visit the main page of
the site ( and click on the "Scooter"
link above the opening paragraph.  Trust me, this one
deserves your attention and a couple of minutes of your time
to view.

All of us know a "Scooter". We never know just how much time we have, give
them a call! We all are (or need to be) a Scooter! Make somebody laugh (I did
when I read about the giveaway!) I will pray for Scooter's family, and all of
those out there who might leave this Earth unready!!

Kinda puts this election stuff in perspective! Thanks Ken.

it's a Ford (kinda).
