  1. It looks nice. I question where they say it is an original ram air car. I think I remember the ram air was only available with the H code in 1972.
  2. Welcome from nearby Mooresville, IN.
  3. Welcome from Indiana. My Dad's name was the same as yours, even spelled the same with the capital R in the middle.
  4. They made a second brochure and fixed that mistake. I have both brochures.
  5. I wired up the seat belt light, above the glove box for my line lock light. I put a small switch in the ashtray to activate the line lock. It is not used much anymore.
  6. That is my next adventure!, How is the riding around SD? I want to go there but not at bike week, i ride better with smaller groups and get agravated when all the posers start reving their engines splitting my ear drums and then nthey put their bikes back on the trailer:D Would love to see Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Devils Tower and everything in between::thumb:: I agree with you about not being there during the big rally. I was there in late June and it was great. The weather was nice and the roads were not crowded. We made it to Badlands NP and Devils tower as well as MT Rushmore. After the sidecar rally we spent a few days in Spearfish. We even stopped In LeClaire, IA and visited the American Pickers store on the way out.
  7. Great trip! I'm glad it went well. We went on a trip to the National Sidecar Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota last June and rode 3200 miles. We also made it out to Montana and Wyoming.
  8. I think I remember seeing that car a couple of years ago when we were taking my Daughter to the Knoxville airport.
  9. My Dad had a 72 LTD with a 351C 2V back in the day.
  10. Thanks for posting this. It brought back a lot of memories. I saw the Hubert Platt car a couple of years ago at the Mustang National show at Indianapolis Raceway Park.
  11. Very nice bike. Is it the Bonneville SE? That is the Triumph that I would choose. I really like the classic styling and I do prefer the alloy wheels for the safety of being able to use tubeless tires.
  12. We are currently on our way to Sturgis for the National Sidecar Rally. We should arrive tomorrow.
  13. I have JC Taylor and pay around $300 for $45K agreed value. At first they wanted an appraisal, then they noticed the R in the serial number and said it was not necessary.
  14. That is a good story. Escorts were pretty good cars. We bought a 95 Escort 2 door hatchback for our daughters to drive in 98 when first learning. They called it Barney because the color was like Barney the children's dinosaur character. That car had a 5 speed manual trans and was quite fun to drive. It was handed down through all three girls and always did fine.
  15. My Marti Report also did not mention the intermittent wipers or the rear defrost in determining 1 of 1 status
  16. One of the best just died. I just found out that B B king has Passed away.
  17. This was my sixth time to go to the Mecum Indy. I also went to Mecum Kissimmee last January. There is always a good variety cars there. My wife was tempted by a 2002 T Bird with only 7600 miles on it. I saw where in 2008 it sold for 87,500 at Barrett-Jackson.
  18. I was at the Mecum Auction in Indy today and saw this Boss 351. It is said to have been once owned by Bill Elliot of NASCAR fame. It will be auctioned on Friday. It is part of the Rick Baker Ford collection.
  19. On my 2012 Mustang convertible, Ford was kind enough to spell it out on the fake gas cap. I guess they did not think we could tell that is was a convertible by just looking at the car.
  20. I was glad to see UW win. We are Butler fans in our house, but they went out early.
