    What's the weather like where you're at?

    WOW! @WillyBob 30% humidity here is almost fire danger weather! 90 degrees plus with 70 + % is normal miserable August air here.

    @MetropolisLakeOutfitters The Ford SVT group makes it, `nuff said! I read it's the drivetrain and suspension upgraded plus knowledge gathered from the off-road crowd. A mean stance thrown in! Do you have the `19 with twin turbos and variable on-the-fly adjustable Fox shocks? First car was a`73 big block Charger, fast & torquey but stunk in the curves. Second the Bicentennial edition of "The Hugger" did what the Charger couldn't do in the curves - 350 4-barrel in a Camaro then was pretty quick. Had a celica that could go full throttle through any curve or turn almost. A 4WD S-10 Durango 6 banger fun... but a drunk hit me and tore it up. `89 Silverado, Sapphire Blue with a nuetered 350. A Cutlass in there too, a 96 dakota with tranny fluid in the 5 sp gearbox. A la cakaroacha `94Caprice 9C1 - med horse, 330ft lbs, 13 second 25+ hwy mpg curve hugging I-95 traffic clearing beast that turning the ac on cooled the engine! Brand is not that important when the vehicle is set up to inhale and exhale correctly, suspension can take it, and it can do 80+ mph for 20 hrs straight (stopping for gas & a pit stop once or twice) without blowing up! Sorry for going off a little but when you grow up on the southside here where the World 600 was run, next door neighbor takes you for rides in his Hemi Superbird when you're six and seven years old.... it and his wife's Roadrunner had road runner beep beep horns!!! N ascar C ountry is different..... it was at least.

    I'm the third I guess. Ford did not sell out to the almighty govt the last decade. I respect them for that. Plus did y'all read or hear about what goes into making one of those Raptors? Could be better now, what I saw about them was a few years ago! Not just a tweaked exhaust and fender flares.

    Cory that is one fine Ford! Wouldn't mess with it unless it was for the same reason that you did. The copper adds enough to it to keep the mainly B&W from looking possibly dull. Do you have to be careful with slinging mud up on that stuff? You're a good bit northwest of here so don't know what color the mud is up there..... but if it is close to the copper color that will look good dirty too!

    In my favorite music decade again @dirtmudd! Well almost with the live Dead.... getting ready for the G.O.T. Starks to get theirs this last season? Does the quadrophonic pressing sound unique at all on a stereo cart? Or did you find something that plays quadrophonic.... that's got to be a rarity there.

    smirnoff was the only one back in the early 80s when I tried it, like Jack-Black was the only whiskey. When the peer pressure bullya disappeared for me it was the 101 Turkey for a long time. It was Bacardi for me for the only clear one besides Everclear. Tequila was clear sometimes, but that's not alcohol that s*@t is a drug! Wodka, Gin, most Scotch never had the palate for, never liked pickled beets either! We were hard-core around here in that era, I took it to the hilt for the wrong (is there a right?) reason and it just about killed me. All in the past, just a shot of Four Roses Single Barrel infrequently.

    Laugh above is obviously for the cartoon, Diana's got a great voice! Never had that Kansas Mike but remember:

    Liked "Master of" & "Kill `em All" but didn't hang with the crowd that just had to go see them every time they came here. That LP is polished as far as their music goes but never sunk to where "Pryomania" went for DefLeppard !!! The second record there... it wore out first!

    Just chillin' out with some Russian music...

    So, really impressed with this bunch of folks, they've played here a bit the last couple of years before I heard of them from this thread. They've got one cd out at discogs closest country shipped from is CA, had trouble once... I've got youtube. So the singer that looks like he'd sing country is pretty good too, it's not just the short haired singer. Then the older guy with the hippie hair... listen to him here with the pianist. I'd bet he could sing the entire Holy Diver LP and sound exactly like R J Dio! Fantastic Musicians All!

    Feeling like some Seger tonight, I can remember back when if you had the radio on for a half an hour you would hear at least one of his tunes. Never thought of it as pop-music, more easy rolling rock-n-roll maybe. Found another survivor in the cabinet!

    Didn't "look back", it could be here already..... This is one fantastic rockin' recording I was turned onto by one of the folks at the LP thread!

    The Other Discs

    I love LPs. Recently they have become cost prohibitive for this fella currently without a radio station, heck without a main rig tuner too. Rebuilding an anti-top-forty collection that started in the mid 70s, I've had to go with cds several times, and it's nice to be able to take them in the car too. Not here to discuss the merits of one form of music reproduction over another. I enjoy a lot of music and do have a threshold I can't tolerate but how my newly (two years ago) rebuilt stereo can sound with the digital stuff is impressive! The car just has a boom-box in it, but it's tolerable most of the time with the bass turned all the way down, I've considered un-wiring that darned subwoofer. I firmly believe Vinyl Rules....... never had a reel to reel myself. Some vinyl is better than others. Some cds are better too. Not just the fancy msfl one I got today but some plain ones are engineered better than others with the depth and lifelike imaging of the sound that's reproduced. Brought to my attention a couple of weeks ago here was how much I missed a cassette of mine that was just an edit of this magnificent recording. Discogs to the rescue and for near mint to mint media for the Who's Quadrophenia LP it was close to and over two bills. Found a seller that was dealin' and landed this for a quarter of that.

    😲 Might find `em if I looked around, but that would be appreciated! We've had Greek food supply stores for ever here, got to be Italian somewhere. There are mexi stores on every corner, they're the most prevalent species here.

    & I'm ticked..... had to go to the Publix 5 mi north for decent produce (the store, different name in the middle of the 10k sq ft mansions & Lambos a mile away just has crappy sometimes rotten onions, green bananas, $3 stalks of celery) they can keep it. So I get the good stuff priced right then go to their bakery where I've been able to get canollis without the d*mn chocolate chips in it for three years.... no more! Past couple of months there is always chips in it. To buy the empty shells costs the same. (red faced smiley with steam coming off my head) Was it just that particular Italian family I was a part of for a while that doesn't like choc chips in the cream? `Cause that is my way now too! I still like the guts with the plain cream, cocoa powder on top of the whip cream that's on top. The canolli cream is easy to make but the shells... might have to pay for them
