    "Just the black", huh? Wear that with pride because a good black finish is tough to come by.

    I'm proud to say I did that....its far from perfect but looks pretty damn good to me. I even bought a gravity feed paint gun to do it right. Grouch is still grumpy, last year we had to take the transfer case out to have it rebuilt because grouch did not like the snow anymore then we had to rebuild the front drive shaft 1200 later it will now plow the snow again...that is if we ever get any. Now here is the stunning news..... We sold the Crown Vic PI because of the new addition. Turns out it only held the driver and four kids, with the granddaughter we had to go larger. Since we couldn't find a short bus to build up with flames, blower and take the s and h off of it to make it the Cool bus we ended up OUR CHOICE getting a 2001 Chevy Suburban with all of the bells and whistles because Klaus refuses to work on a Triton. So now our third row seating is huge.... but I love it. It gets kicked to the curb when its time for RED and I to go out and play. HILLBILLY...... how the heck are you man. You need to call sometime I miss kickin' the dirt with ya.

    As for the timeslips in RED we took him down only the one time when Tom Thornburg met us and we played his baby blue 71 with the 429 and RED. His Chero now belongs to his son and Tom is building Studie's now some with serious muscle. He's getting into the Hotrods more.

    Merry Christmas to all of you. Wishing all the best of health and happiness to you. 20181221_162103_resized.jpg 20181221_162111_resized.jpg 20181221_163502_resized_1.jpg Thank you for all the information you have offered throughout the year as well as the kind words. I'm happy to say that Christmas has come early. I finally found some decent bed trim, bumpers and a camper shell (I'm not sure I really need it). Does anyone have any suggestions for places to get stuff chromed and how much it might be?

    And if you are missing the left-side overrider for the front bumper, I have a pair for sale, $20 each plus shipping. Darned hard to remove if the inner bumper's rusted to Hell and the bolt refuses to move.

    Oculto: I have a Daughter that lives in Abq NM and when I am out that way to see her always like try and to meet some of the ranchero members if I can. just met Todd (aquartlow) in Florida when I went to see my mom. So you never know. Merry Christmas to everyone here and hope to visit a little more in 2019. Take care Dan the ranchero man.

    Merry Christmas to all. I hope you get your Ranchero projects finished up over the winter so you can get out there next year and drive 'em!

    Happy New Year too, and have beer for me!

    Agreed. Borderline gay (not that there is anything wrong with that).
    My 87 LaBaron convertible ran mid-16's, but it did have the V6.
