cobrajoe I met my dad for breakfast this morning and pulled into the parking lot and parked next to a yellow CJ5. It was pretty cool and I figured I'd check it out when I left. Well, @schwim must be stalking me because when I came out, this is what was parked next to me. Geeez, even my life has turned into a VW thread.

I hadnt fished for many years before the first time I ever cast a line into Pueblo Res. It was from the shoreline straight out into deep water with a Yamamoto plastic worm, the rig sank for several seconds and when it hit bottom something nailed it hard and took off, my pole about broke in half and the 10lb line snapped faster than I could even react. After that I always made sure my drag was set right for the line I was using. Doh!!!
A buddy and I used to set limb lines for catfish on the Wakarusa River. Had one set on a stump, with a 5" perch on the hook just at the waters surface. We weren't 15 feet away when a wiper crested the surface and stole our bait. It had to be at least 15 pounds. Even the smaller 2 pounders fight like a 6 pound largemouth. We have some striped bass in one reservoir and the Kaw river. I caught a 22 incher below our water treatment weir. On a light-medium action rod, it was quite a blast. Drum and buffalo are fun to catch too, but they arent a sport fish

We fish for these ugly things here...

World record Flathead (yellow) catfish at 123 pounds. Caught here in KS.



Out on Milford Lake, they troll for blue cats with TWELVE INCH goldfish

Or these super fighters, the Wiper. It's a striped bass and white bass hybrid

The most technically advanced Ford to race Top Fuel was the car of Jim Busby. The Busby and Banard car had twin small block 300 cubic inch Indy Fords on nitromethane. Don Long built the chassis. In the car's only appearance, it ran 8.27 at 186.12 and easily won the best engineered award at the 1969 Pomona Winternationals. Hank Westmoreland drove that weekend. Jim Busby would leave drag racing and find his fame in road racing during the 1970s and 80s. This car was probably the most expensive Top Fueler ever built relative to the era in which it debuted. The final cost was pushed to near 100 grand (in 1969 dollars!) due to cost of the rare Indy Fords used in the car.

Above and below show just what a lack of border security there was between San Diego and Ti Juana... passing over was not even noticeable. Now, it's normally an hour or 2 of sitting in traffic, at least, to get into the US.

i soldered new wiring to the connector plug and in my case i chose to add it here using a hole saw. you can add it whereever but i was doing more of a hidden winch reusing the original bumper and wanted the bumper to be quick detatch which left the connector needing to be mounted on the body.



on both my 96 and 88 i mounted the relay over top the big hole for the core support. leaves it higher up to not go underwater as easy, the big wires reached still. can still access pretty easy by removing the grille. my 96 has an aftermarket billet grille but my 88 has the original and it fit no without interference


Gotcha - thanks for the info Kingfish.

schwim Jay Leno's crew wrapped up a replica of that MB hauler that someone else had started, if I remember the story correctly. It was Gorgeous.

I'd rather have this one though:
