    Oh yeah, nothing nasty. Just let the guy know there was treatment and medication available for obssesive compulsive behavior and that not all of us like our Ford pickups to remain as Henry sent them out of the shop!!!!!! He's a moderator, but I tell ya what, Bill should sure teach him a few lessons on how to do the job. I should probably be more considerate and at least supply him with a definition of moderator, he seems to have it confused with dictator!!!

    PS, don't tell Bill I said anything nice about him, I have my image to consider!!!!!

    Dave FTE is kinda clicky sometimes. I've was banned from there for a while for more or less speaking my mind towards another member. No swears or anything...just headbutting for the most part. You know where I hang there and Art is a good mod. Bill was the one who had him delete everything and only select members were banned me being one of them. So my one aw shoot took away all my atta boys!! LOL. Sheesh!

    Erik,

    You should have told him that 10.2 isn't all that great . . . . in an eighth-mile track.

    It must be a Ford thing. We have a guy who thinks he knows turbos by reading alot and just bought a mustang and when he adds the turbo he says he will be running 5.6 in the 1/8. Mind you this guy has NEVER raced before. Just reads alot. He thinks everything he reads is true.

    Hey!!!! I'm a Ford guy!!!! But yeah, a lot of these Ford Truck guys take it as a personal affront if you mention that you switched your headlights to Halogen bulbs and use a relay!!!! They really go ballistic when you mention lowering a truck and installing IFS!!!!! Man, I don't like anything to be left stock!!!!!!

    There is a lot of talk around (magazine print) that says big HP numbers for these part$$$$ that you bolt on. Theres a lot more to racing than money. To run a good race, two, I can think of right off, reflexes and experience

    Well now that you mention it yea I did see that!!! LOL

    LOL I'm a Ford guy too but like you...just can't leave things stock either. It's just not fun and with the all the new slick and trick oem and aftermarket parts out there you can have a blast!! I think if I ever did a numbers matching resto I'd be commited. Oh just the thought of all those paint daubs and chalk marks fading and washing away slowly as I drove the car.....oh wait...I'd be trailering the car then huh??

    I do respect some of these guys as it painstaking as heck finding all the correct oem parts... and it's interesting to see the cars as they were off the line. Just not my thing tho... Not to mention the prices they pay for parts.

    Heck, when I look at a car in the showroom the first thoughts going through my mind are how I could mod the thing!!!! I did restorations for 5 miserable years and will NEVER consider doing another. Most of the customers want everything perfect, and done for free!!!! Hot rodders usually put a little of themselves into everything they build. Look at all the Deuce's at a car show, and no two of them are done the same. Every car is done with the builders intepretation of what a Deuce should be. I like to make all of mine unique, copying someone else's car or the factory's idea of what the car should be is like kissing your sister......

    Yeah I did a couple of restos too Dave.......as far as doing the work I found it boring. Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of research and parts hunting to make things right but when it's all said and done, there is absolutely no imagination or personal touches involved. Making sure you have the right marking and finish on a bolt head is not my idea of a fun day.

    What I get a kick out of is seeing restored muscle cars and talking to some of the owners. These cars were MEANT to be raced, abused and thrown away. The big trick was seeing how much you could get away witout voiding the 50K warrenty. If you see a Hemi car with under 2000 miles on it you can bet it was done a 1/4 mile at a time.

    Bring that up on some of the other forums and see how quick you get flamed
