    If you know what I mean.

    Power Ranger it is.

    Only 3 wheels!

    Steering on the wrong side!

    Going around the track backwards!

    Something strangely attractive about them

    Would the wagons make good gear haulers?

    That's quite the life you're leading there, Buck! So, the secret to the sparklecasters is a go-go dancer's body glitter?

    Yes, the secret to the sparklecasters IS stripper dust.

    I knew that.

    But it is a terrible example to set.

    You never know when one of my students might pop in here.

    Those kids are pretty computer savvy these days.

    Or so I have heard!

    I going with a '94 Ford Ranger, just as a guess. OK not really a guess as I have a '93 that's darn close except the spedo doesn't work on mine.

    We have a winner!

    Those speedos are sort of worthless anyway. 'Cepting in town it is very difficult to speed in mine! ;)

    16 years in the Snowbelt and I just found the first little bubble of crud above the left-rear wheel well.

    I wonder if that will fall under an extended warranty. ;)

    The Ford guy (one of my former students) is always trying to get me to buy something newer. Ha! I say. Why? What could be better. It fairly sips gas and IT'S BUILT LIKE A TRUCK!

    I also tell him that there is nothing wrong with what FORD is doing today. EXCEPT that they build things that RUN, and RUN, and RUN. That series of Rangers is darn close to the best little truck that could every be built.

    Here's your Stock Market tip...

    BUY low

    SELL high

    :)

    Here is mine.. Most of the lights are burnt out also, gas gauge doesn't work either, but the thing still runs great with just a hair under 270,000 miles.

    Alvin, what are the chances that the two of us would both be sitting around with pictures of our truck's instrument clusters?

    Odd that!

    I'm heading back to Kamp Kaufman next week.

    Sort of looking forward to a week of adult stupidity.

    Gonna try to start storing up some sleep!
