    We're currently living in a culture that is in constant and unrelenting search of something to be pissed off about. Seems to be more fun to get all spun up over something we see on TV rather than just change the channel or, even better, turn the damn thing off and read a book.

    my thoughts exactly. $300 for a car battery is nuts. I paid less than half that for an Interstate battery that contains a lot more lead than any passenger car starting battery I've ever seen.

    That lift is the greatest thing since sliced bread. The garage belongs to a friend of mine. He's the one responsible for the really nice paint job. In exchange for his help in making the tractor look pretty, I'm on the hook for wiring a 66 Mustang he's building. It's getting a bunch of digital upgrades and he hates doing the electrical work on these things.

    The latest update on Project Farm Tractor: Just finished the last of the wiring. The lights are what happens when your were raised by a combination of an electronics technician and tinkerer father and a farmer uncle.

    @knight1fox3 The one show I know I'll have it at next year is Union Grove in September. There's an annual show there anyway but next year they are hosting a GOTO (Gathering of the Orange). Hope to hit a few others around the area before that one though. @jeb6294 - I had the exact opposite problem with my former dealer. They told me the rear pads on my truck were on the edge of going metal-on-metal. Since the pads only had around 15k miles on them, I was concerned about the cause and decided to do the work myself. Here is what I found when I pulled them: I figure those pads were only good for another 50k miles or so.

    ^Mostly repaired/rebuilt. They didn't make very many of this model so parts can be hard to come by. I'm doing the restoration more for entertainment than anything else.

    ^Thanks! Still a lot of detail work to be done but it's nice to hear it run again. It's also nice that it's no longer a 4500 lb paperweight in the shop.

    I think XM fired up the Christmas music channels the day before Halloween. Just about a month too early IMHO.

    I have the Sirius/XM radio tuned to Ozzy's Boneyard so I should be pretty safe. I just have to be quick on the preset button when I drive Mrs. Flyer's car since there's a better than average chance that it will be dialed to one of the holiday channels.

    funny pic thread

    That's pretty hideous. If they were going to go with the anti-General Lee idea, they should have used something other than a Charger. Although, then they would probably be guilty of ruining a perfectly good Camaro or Mustang.

    Things are going well but busy. How's by you?

    As bad as that one is, I think the Paul McCartney song is worse.
