    You'd be surprised how many times I've caught myself in reflection with this camera.
    that doesn't answer my "why" question... it can't need to pass any meaningful smog regs now...

      all for naught

      as in naught, nary, zero.

      I have been wondering about a big wagon (LTD) for a Powerstroke. I wonder how a duramax would fit in there.

            Oh, that why? Because I thought I could keep it stock until I was ready for a transformation. Maybe see what kind of mileage the CCC would yield. I can tell you that the C without the CC only supplied 7.5mpg.

            See?

            I've just got to 12/12 so far. Other events creep up that affect my directive decisions.

              Yes, literally chased my tail with this thing.

                That'll happen after I win the lottery. I have too many spare engines sitting around now to go learning another new-to-me architecture. I have enough spares that I could put a second motor in each vehicle and still have left over.

                I prefer the term pack-rat to hoarder.

                      Okay, how's this; I have been investing in motors for years and a few have shown less potential for a return on the investment and my portfolio was thusly thinned to optimize its potential.

                      By chance, are your eyes brown?

                            Is that nationwide or just a couple of rouge states?

                                I have severe pain from working on Chevy's, so I'm entitled to drive my Fords. The Fed says they'll look the other way.
