    I’m glad to hear somebody else say it.

    All the hair-Metal crap came into fashion when I was in my teens...some of the individual songs were good, much of the musicianship was solid, but dang it—the genre as a whole sucked...the guitars used to play it were worse.

    I know a lot of people hated grunge, but the best thing that the whole Seattle Sound did was put a stake in the heart of the hair Metal bands that didn’t have anything beyond the spandex and the Aqua Net.

    Unfortunately, there seems to be a resurgence in interest in the style (just like every movement, it’s having a retro/nostalgia moment), and I’m hating it even more the second time around.

    As far as being an aging rocker; well, I don’t know if I ever really earned the label of “Rocker.”

    Is there an aging Texas Roadhouse Musician category for the guys like me who couldn’t decide if they were Blues, Classic Rock or Outlaw Country, so they just blended the three?

    I can't tell what that thing that looks like a melted TV dinner is. That could be the key to your answer.

    Aging Rockers just have stuff like that. It's kind of like a do-rag for your hand.

    There were a few other lesser known conversions available for the flathead Ford V8 .

    I'm surprised I remembered the Ardun conversion, that was many moons ago. Maybe they still do it, I don't know.

    Arduns were for the Flathead V8. I think Cragar and Offenhauser made over head valves heads for the Model A & B. I seem to remember Rajo conversion as well. I’d have to find my Daddyo’s hot rod books if I still have them.
