    I think (thought) that someone had parked a dodge there before Sean parked his...

    Nice. Maybe a Durango? Or any generic Dodge? The Durango leaks but the Ram doesn't.

    I thought all dodges leaked but I've never owned one - maybe a dodge owner could enlighten us?

    Would still like to see a consolidated thread on the build of Sean's truck... (don't want to spend the time looking for the posts hither and yon).

    Probably won't have the Durango much longer, wife is driving it full time now and she wants a Mustang. Meh. But with the truck I will remain a Hemi owner, so don't worry. As for leaking, my Taurus done did a ton more weeping than any of my Dodge's ever did.

    Glad to see that you won the lottery or inherited a gas company because those Hemi engines aren't known for their gas mileage. Other than that, and the ultra-cheap plastic interiors that fall apart, Dodge makes some good trucks.

    Especially as goats and sheep are kissing cousins.:p

    Jealous much? Anyway as stated many times previously, I work from home. Only commute is to the head or the fridge. Both are within walking distance.

    I like the watermelon Oreos, personally. Dip them in some raspberry iced tea, and man, it's like dividing by zero. Awesome.

    Begs the question - what was the solution to the shifter hole in the floor hump???

    (yes y'all, a thinly veiled attempt to get back on topic in a non-lounge/wacky thread...)

    Not so much. One of my best friends is a devoted Dodge owner. He can afford to buy any vehicle he wants but he buys a brand new Dodge pickup every 3 or 4 years. He's the one who first pointed out the cheap plastic interior parts (cracked dashes, mainly) and the terrible gas mileage to me. When I was looking for a pickup about 3 years ago, I drove a few Dodge pickups. I liked them because they were usually a LOT cheaper than a Ford or Chevy, but every one of them had the cracked dash. I still think they are good trucks and would buy one if the price is right.

    After looking at that picture, I believe that someone's little dog just relieved himself under the Ranchero. There's no way that a Ranchero that looks that good would have a leak.

    But Sean built the engine. Come on, not a big leap of faith there.

    My truck has no such issues of which you speak. But then, it may someday.

    Good on Dad ! Ya'll know Sean's way too anal about his rides to let one mark it's spot like a Harley. Betting that the spot was already there cause such doesn't compute with either Sean or his Dad. Good memorys someday when Sean's flipping thru the family album.

    ...as he is reminded yet again how his lifelong auto project was ripped from his loving arms, left at the alter like a jaded bride.

    My recollection was that "dear old dad, hoping to help out his son who was busy with life, and stuff, and no room, and no garage, living in a strange place, surrounded by people who talk funny, decided to assist him in getting it painted and assembled after all the hard work was done..." (and that's my story and I'm stickin' to it...)
