    Chevy made a big block 402 that they put in the Monte Carlo for a few years in early 70's. Not much difference from the 396 normally used by Chevy just wanted to differentiate the Monte from the slightly cheaper Chevelle. Many speculated they were the same, but not sure. Both were strong motors.
  3. Austin TX - Belle on CL

    I thought the same thing, but I'm not on here often enough to know when it is good natured ribbing between comrades or bad form. So I usually stay out of it. Plus it seemed Dave was able to defend himself quite well without me and be a good sport too.
  4. Austin TX - Belle on CL

    I find your spreadsheet useful if utilized as intended, to be a guide. Anything being sold is of a certain value only to the person buying. This is subjective to location, need, and the value of a dollar to the purchaser. Many here have vast differences in disposable income. Use the spread sheet as a reference, but don't be afraid to over pay (a little). Belles don't come up as often as others do. If you go an extra year or two looking for the best possible deal, you have deprived yourself of some great listening experiences. I slightly overpaid for my first set of Belles and don't regret it. I got a much better deal on my second pair simply due to the considerably lessened urgency based on the fact that I already had a set.

    sorry, bad intel! it is Feed Jake by Pirates of the MISSISSIPPI. I was close

    Chuck, ever heard the song Feed Jake by Pirates of the Caribbean Mississippi? I think of that song every time you talk about Jake. Lyrics are very dated but anyone that ever had a dog named Jake will get a kick out of it and have a heck of a time getting it out of their heads.

    You are absolutely right! Cuz, I don't have a tv in my living room, but I do have a pair of Belle's! Better than the nfl any day!
  8. NFL 2017

    As an NFL orphan, I am looking for a team to support. If KC keeps this up, it could be them. Three and a half hours and I could tailgate and catch a game. I currently just root for whomever the Rams are playing against. But as my apathy towards the NFL grows, I may just ignore them altogether.

    You had me a bread pudding! No plans for New Orleans again in the foreseeable future, but that would be nice. Might have to shoot for Hope one of these years when life slows down a bit!

    Congrats Dave! My kids used to be cute! I have three boys also. AND a girl.....get going! (It's worth it)

    Lots of good picks. My add: Poco: Keep on Tryin'
  12. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    I would have been better off missing a round of bread pudding, but it was everywhere. I'm more of a "plant your butt in one place and have a few cocktails" than a " let's hop to 8 different bars packed with people I don't know" kind of guy. Your Tiki hut would suit my style (or lack of) perfectly. The better sound system would be a bonus too.
  13. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    Made it back from New Orleans in one piece! Felt compelled by this forum to eat bread pudding 3 times in four days, the worst batch was wonderful! Also felt I had to drink in the oldest bar in the US (maybe second oldest maybe third, but that has already been discussed)! Should have just gone to Elden's!
  14. When is a Klipsch no longer a Klipsch?

    Does this make me an accomplice? (I supplied the replacement badge). I knew hanging with you low life, high school band aiding peeps would get me into trouble. I can't speak for Paul, but I would think that Klipsch Corporate appreciates the advertisement. I don't doubt those are the best sounding speakers many of those kids ever heard, just like the La Scalas I heard for the first time when I was their age. It stuck with me. Now I'm up to my neck in Klipsch (some modified)!
