    Still hasn’t replaced those rings. Headed to Wal-Port for more oil, I suppose.

    What, no 12-gauge blaster rifle mounted to the back window?

    He did the rings, but didn’t check the valve guides and seals. If he milled the warped head he wouldn’t blow gaskets. Is it a straight 6 or v-8?

    Slant 6 for me. Still driving my 64 Dodge D – 200.

    One of the best things about this old iron if you want to go this far, is that if there ever was some sort of EMP burst, and electronics were fried, this old beast will keep right on running. Just points, plugs and a generator … the survivalist dream vehicle.

    I had a 69 slant 6 four door that was powder blue. Ugly thing and ate oil, but I loved that car. 3pumps of the gas and she started at 11 below on the first crank of the engine. Unfortunately I put it in front of a semi on Hwy 70 and killed her, but she saved my life.

    Buck Snodgrass. That is too funny. I actually dated a guy named Chuck Snodgrass back in church camp when I was young. He lived in Bland, Mo.

    Three Steps Over Japan: Back in the mid-‘90s when I was traveling 80 miles one way to get my masters, I kept track of gun racks in both Dallas and rural north Texas. Only a few carried guns. I wrote them up as "What Happened to Bubba’s Gun Rack" but couldn’t find a folkloric or sociological journal to publish it. The most common items on them were caps and lassos. The few guns were mostly .22 rifles.
    .
    They mainly existed as a terror weapon, telling blacks, “I can shoot you and get away with it any time I want.” They stopped being used both because the sheet-wearers could no longer get away with it, and because it was an open invitation to break the window and get a free gun.

    I used to know and work with three Snodgrasses. I could see one of them being a forebear to Buck.
