Yes, he is such a benefit to the forum. I couldn't imagine it without him here. I just signed up to this one today and I'm already fed up with him.

That's one of the best features of this new format for the board, he could have a million replies on that post and it wouldn't take up more than one space on the screen, cool....

Dang Lem, I thought you had seen one on TV...

We had a bad train crash down here in AL a few hours ago. David Cole from this drives a train close to that area, but luckily wasn't on this train.

Good that David wasn't on that train!


As a side note, I know this isn't going to be popular, but I never really liked fairlanes anyway. too boxy and heavy, eh just My .02.


I'd run him lol

Wait, let me get this straight - you have an F100, and don't like Fairlanes because THEY'RE boxy and heavy???

I didn't say that Scott, Jerry did....

I do have an F-100 and do like Fairlanes. My Dad has two of them and we have a 460 to go in one of them. :D Jerry doesn't care for them and that's cool. A lot of folks don't like trucks for dragracing, but that's cool too. No big deal at all, just wanted to clear that up. :)

Don't get me in trouble Jerry, :wink: I need all the friends I can get. :D

Hey David, sort of off topic, but a friend of mine who has a chassis shop here in Austin just finished an early 70's Chebby drag truck. Thought it interesting how light it is considering that it's all steel body except the 'glass hood. Has mild-steel frame-rails, moly cage (not a funny car style), strut front susp, and weighs 1550# dry. Watched them disassemble it for paint Sun night. Has a Bill Mitchel 800h.p. big block (iron tall-deck block). Customer wanted it light... I guess he accomplished that.

What is that beast of yours going to weigh? I know it has a bunch more tubing in it.

:)

About 2350....

without the driver. It weighs 1500 lbs with the trans fully rolling. The engine adds 750 lbs.

I like trucks and fairlanes. I just dont really think the fairlane body is all that sweet looking. Trucks are supposed to look boxy. Cars arent.

I have a 69 Mustang, not a truck. there David that should take the heat off you man. lol
