    Ah, that reminds me of my grandmothers' houses (both of them). Really nice those old Dutch coffee grinders - even though yours is from a brand of caffeine free coffee, and i think that's an abhorrence

    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.

    Tucking her in for the winter after thanksgiving.

    Silly top didn't want to go up. Worked fine when I put it down in March. Good thing I only do that once a year.

    Happy belated birthday

    You'll wonder how you ever got along without a proper pair of cable cutters (I sure did). Book looks interesting, not the least because the riders all seem to be on vintage or semi-vintage rigs - and the lead rider is helmet-less. I think I like that most of all

    Not dreaded by me. Planning a build, procuring parts and building up a new frame is almost as much fun for me as riding...

    This one is going to be special though. Taking it slow and doing it right.

    I've got a small collection of manual grinders including Zassenhaus, PeDe, and a few similar models. They're great for espresso, but for the amount of beans you'll need for the French Press, you'll be cranking for a while. Then when you're ready to brew, your pulse is already racing

    My favorite hand mill is an oddball from the 60's or 70's made by Verity Southall. It's pretty ugly compared to the old German mills, but the burrs are sharp and nicely made, and the burr adjustment allows very fine control of the grind size. I've also got an old cast iron Arcade Manufacturing mill that does a nice job for a coarse grind. It won't grind fine enough for an espresso machine, but it makes short work of a batch of beans for the drip machine, not bad for a 100+ year old grinder. You might keep an eye out for one of those old cast iron units, they're not in great demand among the coffee aficionados, so they're pretty affordable.

    I see cheap vintage grinders at flea markets & antique shows all the time, but I've got two that I really like so I've stopped picking them up.

    What kind of burr grinder do you use? I've been looking at some of the hand cranked versions, like a Hario, but I see some complaints about the coarse grind quality. There are the vintage German ones, like a Zassenhaus, but they aren't exactly cheap and may require some refurbishing. I'd like to find a relatively nice, sub 100 dollar grinder. It sounds like the vintage ones could possibly be higher quality?

    My 14 yo wants a Ranchero or early El Camino - he thinks they're one of the coolest vehicles out there. I told him it would have to be one with a straight six for an engine. I know what I was like with a V-8 and he's not nearly as observant as I was at that age.

    Pretty rare car these days - especially in that condition. Although I could do without the wheels.

    My dad crammed a 302 V8 in his '65 Falcon. Definitely keep the straight 6 if you want to keep it tame . And ^ agreed. So many classic cars are ruined with those oversized rims IMO. It detracts so much from the looks of the car, and I just can't get passed it. Even old timers these days are guilty of it, I blame hip hop and that Chip Foose guy lol

    My dad took a 302 and had it stroked to 347 cu inches in a 65 Falcon Sprint. He added all the go fast goodies and then put the 4.11 gears on it. It was one of the fastest cars I drove and also the scariest.

    Actually some of us just want to be able to stop and Corvette 6 pistons with 13 inch rotors need at least 17's and 275's just about can keep the back from washing out

    "Pro-Touring" and G-Machines is the new black with older cars. Some of us are wanting to drive the hell out of our old cars again.
    This one does well in Autocross, puts 400 hp to the back wheels, Runs 1/4 mile in the 12's and gets 24mpg at 80mph with the A/C on. I'm copping the suspension and brake set up for my convertible. Cant afford to get into a 6.2 LS motor right now to copy the drivetrain and my 400 is pretty fresh.

    Out for errands today - rode into Clifton to get groceries and pay some bills. I haven't put the studs on yet, and didn't feel the need for them today. Of the 11 mile round trip, only a mile or so was snowpacked.
