Seems that everyone in the Tulsa area is extremely busy with job, school, etc... Takes forever to get anyone together and catch up.

Since I just bought a '00 Ranger, I've been spending reading through that section.

every one is real busy I have been working long hours during the week and racing on the weekends with all of that I'm always got some thing to do and not enough hours in the day. I post as I have stuff to say but thats not all of the time. Also their are not that many of us that actually post and involve themselves with us. I bet there are only about ten people that post regularly with only ten people you run out of things to talk about fast.

NO excuse... with the price of gas that's all we can do is talk...with a couple of "slicks" working I know the money is tight, don't go junk yarding like I use to,with gas and all. But let me say they are selling good "old trucks" at junkyard prices and thats a sin!! I have seen full trucks headed to the crusher, and the fast cash at the crusher is better than them parting them out..........Hope all had a good 4th of July...just had to vent to0 someone............

You should be seeing more and more of sending the good old stuff to the crusher. I believe it big brother stepping in and not so much the need for money.

There is a PRIVATE T-bird yard in Wisconsin that was forced to shut down. The owner is very helpful to us Thunderbird owners for parts and knowledge. The state decided he was running a salvage yard, and told him he had to apply for all sorts of permits. In a sense the state ran him out. He is now parting everything out, and getting rid of a lot.

Know what your saying, there use to be yards full of old iron all over the country,you could go pull your own parts and all, now days if there on the yard over a week there crushed.....they pull the big ticket items..(motors/trans) and the rest goes. Makes it hard on us re-builders. Plus like the T-bird guy puts you out of a living

nope not from Oklahoma, just wanting to move to Muskogee VERY badly, the taxes, and people up here just bring the suck!! I grew up near a small town that has become a bedroom for a big city, and that has brought MUCH trouble to the small townand now that my wife and I want to have more children, we dont want them growing up in a town where the goths, emos, and freaks outnumber the good kids

hoping to be in west Muskogee area, dont know how far that is from Antlers, if that is the name of your town, and not the deer that you be a huntin the wife and I just cant wait to be back there, we are both VERY tired of the people and the pace that life has become out here, and want the slower, more relaxed pace of life that appears to be the norm out there
