    • Got one in 2012 at a swap meet from a shop in MO but the converter quit on PT in Joplin and I had to get towed. Don't trust rebuilt generic converters. IIRC that one was $700 but that was a long time ago and a stock rebuild. Hot Rod Garage said they paid $900 for a used one at a junkyard to use for temporary mockup in their Grand Trashional. www.lizardtransmission.com says $1795 for 600 HP. Should have converter and dipstick, TV cable etc... My car probably only has 250 give or take. Stuff slides around in the bed if you get on it.

      • Got second shot yesterday. May or may not be why I feel bad. Had bad leg cramps last night. I will be 45 this year so some of it comes with old age. Getting pressured to schedule vacation time by the eighth. I have no idea what I will be doing or what will not get cancelled or rescheduled. Rocky mountain raceweek is in Great Bend KS in June. Has anyone been to https://kustomkempsofamerica.com/salina.htm ? I was going to check it out a few years ago until it go cancelled.

            Drink more water, lots of water. Especially after 2nd shot and boosters if you go that far. Makes a big difference. Vitamin D3 will help with leg/muscle cramps too.

                  Might mean you, me and 5 others are officially here, the rest are just snooping around...

                      Yeah I know - it was more a comment about many lurkers / or members that didn't bother to log in. Seemed pretty lopsided to me

                          So are we so pitiful that we don't have anywhere better to hang out

                          OR

                          are we so hard core / bad to the bone that we can't abandon our hang out.


                          Seems, perhaps, I shouldn't drink so much

                          • I think Facebook has taken the place of this for many. So many newbies on FB that think they can't do power tour unless they have a Gold or platinum package. I like this group better. We need to get some new BS shirts. Chad had one of this week when we were watching on Sick Week.
