It was a '57 VW bug that ran on 3 cylinders. I put a full rebuild kit in the engine... $90 at Sears.

Wait til you find out what I did in the Nav. Sponged out the cannons!

I was a good little boy back then living in LA. I only went bad after the Nav got ahold of me and turned me into a member of Genghis Khan's hordes against my will. Tom Berenger played my part in Platoon. In real life I killed Charlie Sheen and ate his liver.

It's not my fault. I've learned to deal with it. When I feel the old feelings I just clean my assault rifle and reset the claymores. My rifle is named "Rachel". Rachel... say hello to longride and sarnali.

Fortunatly my friends Lee and Enfield can reach out and touch someone way before they're in range with their puny .223's and 7.62's....keeps the heathens off the verge quite nicely

I was hoping it would bring back mammaries. Sigh...being a single Dad isn't ALL glamour and excitment ya know..

Doesn't sound like being a married dad was all glamour and excitment either.

There's a lot of ground to cover on that topic. None of particularly unique or interesting...at least that's suitable for mixed company.

Back to cars, Guys!

I helped a buddy of mine in High School (at Clark AB in the Philippines) rebuild a '63 Ford wagon his Dad had dumped on him. It was in great shape and the engine ran fine, but it had lunched the tranny.

We used the Chilton manual, very particular in our detail and cleanliness. When we put it back together, it ran! Unfortunately, it had one speed in "F", and three in "R"! It'd haul @ss backwards, lemme tell ya!

We must have torn that tranny apart five times. Never did figure out WTF we did wrong.

His Dad took it back, and paid a local shop to put a rebuilt unit in.

Then there's the time (also in the P.I.) my Dad bought a '62 Buick Special, and found out- the next morning when he went to back out of the carport- that it had no reverse. He drove it like that for quite awhile.

The real story is how he decided a Chevy 283 and PowerGlide transmission "would fit right in" that Buick! We spent a lot of time at the Auto Hobby Shop...

Hey cool! Learn something new. :)

Thanks, LR.

At least it kept you on base and out of the bars. Just think of all the penicillin you never had to take!
