    IF YOU HAFTA ASK YOUR WIFE…

    Posted on by

    ONE OF THE GEMS that was lost when we updated the format of this website was my rant about this topic: “IF you hafta ask your wife… you ain’t gettin’ it.”  One of the things that earned my wife ‘keeper’ status was when I ran my potential purchase of a retired race car/ pro-street Camaro. … Read more »

    NO STALGIA!

    Posted on by

    NOSTALGIA is what this website, project vehicle sales, and used parts operation is all about.  If none of us were fond of what we did and drove in the past, we would all be lining up for our self-driving electro- shuttles. There are certainly times when I no longer want to be a part of… Read more »

    New Year’s Message

    Posted on by

    “You didn’t have to be a Dick about it”.   Sorry if I offended you, snowflake.  In order to prop up the year- end, I posted a couple of ‘boxing days’ specials- selling guess what?  BOXES.  8 foot long truck boxes to be exact.  One reply was “I need a short box.”  Well, sister, do you… Read more »

    HEEERES JOHNNY!!!

    Posted on by

    AFTER a mercifully longer ‘FALL’ than we are generally used to, I am certain winter has begun.  With this latest dump of snow, and the fact that I saw more southbound geese while shoveling our driveway, my hopes of seeing a brown Christmas are dashed.  The good news is that our bird feeder has a… Read more »

    IS IT JUST ME?

    Posted on by

    WE have all kinds of things that drive us crazy.  Lately, this isn’t even driving distance, but more like a walk?  I cannot watch the news without wanting to throw something solid through the T.V.  So many examples of SHEER STUPIDITY- supposedly from people who are supposed to be world leaders, and then there are… Read more »

    PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE AD BEFORE YOU REPLY

    Posted on by

    Can we blame it on the educational system or FaceBook? One of the frustrating things about trying to do business in a digital world is that the more technology does for us, the less people want to do for themselves.  A lot of the time when someone replies to an ad, it is often apparent… Read more »

    HAVE ANOTHER BOWL OF STUPID

    Posted on by

    SOME of you may have noticed I sound a little grumpy when I answer the phone.  There are reasons aside from the fact I am generally that way.  You may have caught me elbows deep in something greasy- and not just a cheeseburger.  Your call may have been one in a succession of ‘idiot’ phone… Read more »

    DON’T LET THE GATE HIT YOU

    Posted on by

    MANY A TIME I have been tempted to tell some person “Don’t let the gate hit you on the ass on your way out.”  Most of the time this is the result of dealing with someone who has been watching too many ‘picker’ shows on the television.  Vegas Rat Rods is another ‘bad influence’ on… Read more »

    MYODB

    Posted on by

    With all of the acronyms  texters and tweeters use to qualify their sentiments, my wife and I use the above on a regular basis.  I could say that I coined it quite a few years ago, but you never know what the actual source may be.  My late father in law and I used to… Read more »

    TIME

    Posted on by

    MEMORIES improve with age. Things that weren’t that special at the time assume a more favored place in our memory. When the City of Red Deer insurers declared what happened to my truck an ‘Act of God’ and refused to pay for damages, I pretty much lost interest in the truck.  Having a few decades… Read more »
