I thought about trying to run diesel instead of gas... do you guys think the Triton would slowly transform if I did just a little at a time? Like every fill up do a half gallon or so until the plugs turn into glow plugs? Should I expect a turbo to form or is that something I will have to manually add?

Feed it just before bed, then get it wet. You'll have AMC gremlins in the morning.

Roger that! And I was just exploring the depths of your many insightful and valueable posts in this thread. I'm sure all of the newcomers here really enjoy them. Carry on Brent!

This is a just for fun thread and I was being a big meanie, you were just having your own little bit of fun (over and over and over....) and I tried to throw a wet blanket on you, sorry 'bout that.

Tell us the story about the hippies again Pop-Pop!

There's a game I play online, it's basically a text based game no World of Warcraft stuff. Anyway, this is one of the "Monsters" A.M.C. gremlin - TheKolWiki When you said that all I could think of was this

Pesky Prius

You know you drive an excursion when a **** ant prius races to pass you and then slows to a crawl going up the hills.
Excursion solution:
gently push them to the side of the road,
if it is persistent, not so gently push it aside,
when they come back for more on the downhill side just open your door and watch them enjoy the dirt in the ditch.



2000 and 2004 Excursion Limited, V10, 4WD, 6" lifts, 33 & 35" B.F.Goodrick A/T, Dual S.S. non-cat exhaust. Chipped, Fabfour front and rear, Warn 16, 2k watt Kenwood amp with JVC DVD,CD, Sat, USB, stereo, multiple engine mods, Privacy - Secure Glass, hidden RED-Neck Equipment storage space.

When ever I think of AMC Gremlins I think of these old Dirt Modified Stock Cars from the '70's, I grew up going to tracks watching these little beasties. Fun times!

You are at a stoplight and a smart car pulls up next to you and you think, heck, I could get one of those in the back of the ex as a spare when I get a flat.

I had to drive my mother-in-laws Fiat 500 a few months back. She hit a mail box on an icy road and was to shaken up to drive so wife and I picked her up. I put the seat ALL the way back and I was still scrunched up. I did the normal "Turn the body to check the blind spot before changing lanes" and noticed I could almost touch the rear glass. The next red light I hit I twisted and with my foot still on the brake I did. I felt so claustrophobic it was insane. I had to turn the radio up full blast and open the windows in the freezing weather just to keep my mind off of it!
