  1. I’m sure all they have to do is go to the Ford enthusiast site ( if there is one). There will be scores of people claiming better than sticker fuel mileage, like here. Case closed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It’s our fault mostly. I worked since I was 12. Married at 18. I said like every parent of my time my kids aren’t going to work like I did. The whole country started catering towards the kid, everything geared toward their entertainment because both parents worked and felt guilty. We shoved games in their face took them to stupid non intelligence movies. Mostly we’re too busy to play with them. The ones that do want everyone to get a trophy. So no one has a reason to excel. My recently graduated 18 year old grandson is in no hurry to drive. Even though I have a car waiting for him. He’s not a bad kid. He gets his entertainment from his computer. If he wants to go any where he’s got Uber. He says he wants the summer to be a kid. He get in gear come fall. We’ll see. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My wife wants to keep it another 10 years. We’ll see, it’s not a Toyota or Honda after all. She sits on a cushion so the seats still look new. I’m eyeing the Stinger, G70, ES, CPOs next. I like my Camry. I never really got comfortable with front drive cars. The Camry was the end of model run and a bargain. I am surprised I like it so much. Every now and then I still like to hammer down, spinning front wheels don’t cut it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. It was well into the 90s before I found out dish soap two bath towels and one bucket was not good. No wonder we had to wax so much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. From 73 390 Fords, 7.3 Ford Diesel, V-10 Dodge, 5.9 Cummings 6.5 GM 454 Chevy, we would pickup at the dealership. Then to the outfitters. Add a fifth wheel or gooseneck ball. Usually to our muffler guy. Hook up to camper, hay trailer or goose neck trailer. Pull to horse-show, deliver hay, or piece of equipment. With the 390 Ford c-6 transmission 410 gear or overdrive transmission in drive the engines would sing pulling the loads. Gas @ 3K RPMs Diesel @ redline. All on factory fill oil. Usually at 3K miles switch to Amsoil and extended. Never loss an engine. I wouldn’t dare on these Prima Dona engines these days. Except the 6.0 or the Ford gas and the Toyota gas. The hay day of the indestructible light diesel ended in the 90s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I could have done with out the profanity. You usually knew what you were getting into. One slip today you’re done. Instead of it being called a bad night. People in the spot light today are being judged by something said 20 years ago. Tom Jones singing she’s a lady at a college. He probably wouldn’t make it out alive. People are too quick and angry these days. We need to lighten up. One man kneels and points to the sky, run him out of football. Another kneels during the national anthem, he’s a hero and gets richer. Backwards. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. I have an older truck I bought off E-bay. It’s basically like an old sedan. It’s lowered and very fast. My trip vehicle is a left over Camry. Between the two I have 33K invested. My wife’s car is a sport sedan. 2011 we bought as CPO still with the 10-10 warranty. It’s still under warranty. It’s fully loaded has features GM still doesn’t offer. Add that we have 60K invested. About the cost of a high country. It’s not that I dislike trucks. There’s just better options. You’re friends charger gas savings will possibly cover his lunch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Jeff Dunham is my favorite now. Talk about political incorrectness. But he picks on every one, like Don Rickles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. You missed the point, I know you’re young [emoji2960]There’s a market for performance rear drive sedans. GM used to be the masters at this. I’ve had plenty of them. Even raced some. The Asian rear drives are nice. I would have rather stayed with GM. Would have had plenty of access to performance parts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. It’s better to just call them small block Chevys The 5.3 is the l83. The 5.7 is LT and LS. 6.0 is LS2 and so on. It depends on years too. In most of my time the 5.7 was a 350 small block, then vortec. We also called it mouse and the 454 rat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
