    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    I had a '75 that had gotten a frame off restoration... it was a beautiful truck but it only got 15mpg with the gas engine and the F22 tranny package and 4 speed (complete with PTO's) limited it's top speed.

    But it would pull stumps out of the ground and had an 8000 pound winch.

    My mechanic is checking out my potential Jeep tomorrow to make sure everything is skippy.

    The CHP used to have a few 850's in the 1990s. So, so odd to see a Volvo in black and white.

    And you wear panties? umm uhhh... n/m

    When I was a kid I was in love with the 1988 Pontiac Banshee concept car. While many design elements made it into later Firebird models, I wanted so badly for them to make this exact car.
