    Super Hersey Upgrade Day

    Welcome and thanks for sharing this. Your impressions are eagerly awaited. I'm enoying a pair my Supers as I type. Thank you for your service.

    Check these Cornwall IIs Out.

    I think you're on to something. Please, attach a photo to alerts such as this, especially when something weird is in a listing. Without a photo, the CL, eBay, etc. listing dies and the thread loses all relevance.

    Chorus ii v Heresy iii

    Welcome to the forum. Glad you’re enjoying your H3s. You got a great deal. As others have said, if you come across a deal on Chorus II, you could buy them, compare, and sell whichever finishes second. When I-69sucks, west bound, reopens you should come west to hear what subwoofers add to modified Heresys. You could even finagle an invitation to Claude’s @ClaudeJ1 to hear his killer system, but, either way, you run the risk of heading down an extremely slippery slope. Enjoy your H3s for now. Don’t worry about what you might be missing; appreciate what you have.

    Bosun is the “hooked on phonics” spelling of the nautical term boatswain. Each is an acceptable spelling when referring to those devices. This tragic incident reminds me of the attached iconic photo. Without much dreaded and maligned OSHA regulations, the need to earn a living tempts desperate people to unnecessarily risk their lives to be low bidder on dangerous work.

    Mine was referred to as the Orange Beast. At 164 cid, the Corvair was larger than a 2 liter (122 cid) Porsche, which gave it more torque. Some irreverent souls actually put Corvair motors in Porsches, which I considered sacreligious. I did need a Porsche clutch and pressure plate to get the power to the wheels.

    I too liked the styling of the 68 Charger. In 68, I was a sophomore at MSU and drove a 61 VW Beetle with a 65 Corvair engine. The Corvair’s stock four 1bbl carbs were replaced by a 300cfm Carter AFB 4bbl. With tube headers and straight through mufflers it put out >150 very loud horsepower. At night, flames were visible from the “mufflers.” I had a second set of reverse flow mufflers that would be temporarily installed just long enough to deal with the fix and repair tickets handed out by the campus police. Nothing subtle about the Bug painted Mustang Poppy Red (Orange), with 15” chrome reversed rims. It did the quarter in the 12s. It was fun to be cruising at 70 on I-94 and watch a Cadillac approaching in the mirror. I would gradually accelerate to keep the Caddie — or other large car — at bay. Unconsciously, many drivers could not follow a VW Beetle. At about 85 I would floor it and accelerate away, leaving them to wonder what the hell had just happened. As an aside, the MSU campus police drove 4 door Olds 442s, the only 4 door 442s I ever saw. Recall that Lansing, MI was then the home of Oldsmobile (RIP). The cars had the same sexy Walker chamber pipe exhaust, 400 cid engine, and rear sway bar as regular 442s, but 4 doors to better transport campus criminals. That high speed pursuit capability came in handy when pursuing miscreants all the way across campus.

    If I had a dollar for every time I had to explain that to a police officer, I could get Jubilees.

    The Swingin' Medallions That choreography is amazing. I bet they paid a professional choreographer three or four dollars for that program.

    First of all, please avoid contaminating or threatening this venerable thread with politics. That billboard above is funny, but not necessarily incorrect. As an attorney, specifically a former prosecutor, IMO, the sentiment expressed in that billboard is correct. Laypersons, especially the media, frequently fail to grasp the legal meanings of the words innocent or guilty. As Mr. Archie indicates, you’re not legally guilty unless and until the state sustains its appropriately high burden of proving your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. That definition of guilty does not mean you’re innocent if found not guilty. If a jury finds you not guilty, it does not mean you’re necessarily innocent, but, at a minimum, you’re not legally guilty. It drives me nuts when the media reports that a defendant was found innocent by a jury; that can’t happen. Whether you’re innocent or not is between you, your conscience and your God. Nothing other men and women can do can alter that.

    Apologies @Cantilope for hi-jacking your interesting thread, but there is no longer a need to post a separate thread regarding my h/k 730 in need of a new home. Bruce aka @Marvel is first in line for the h/k 730. Bruce will get it in exchange for paying the shipping. I recently received a decent Dual 1229 from @slindeedean for the cost of shipping. That kind offer followed a mention that I was looking for a way to play 78s I might run across. I’m glad to pay it forward and send this 730 to Bruce.
