The 72 and 77 have 350s automatics . The 68 has the 250 six with 4spd but it's really only a 3 speed first is a granny gear it's so low and combined with the 4:57 rear it screams at 10 mph. I never go over 50 in that truck
So true . I have seen a few lose it while showboating their new 700 + hp cars. Usually happens leaving a show. They turn off the traction control and proceed to fish tail into a guard rail or hit another car. I wait till just about everyone is gone to leave. When I go to the Syracuse nationals I take the car on the trailer with my mom's motorhome she enjoys the show. Camp right in the show grounds. Saw a guy doing some burn outs and donuts in the show lot one evening sure there was alcohol involved he slammed into a Jersey barrier. Really jacked his car. And the sign was down when I got there. Guessing someone came a bit to close with a motorhome negotiating the turnWith the old school cars and a stick shift, with street tires, when you start getting North of 400 HP, the driver becomes the most important asset.
I despise the fact that with these new cars with all their electronic controls, and idiot can run a fast time, no shifting required!
Black locusts is king above all!!It splits well as long as you hit the exact same spot, otherwise it will start a new straight split, with smaller thorns like a rose stem. Honey on the other hand has a crisscrossed grain to it and the very large thorns.
Black locust .
Just put this in my woodshed for next yr.

Honey locust, great wood if not for the thorns , and the difficulty splitting(this was a giveaway).

Did I read correctly, you walk to work in that... I’d be strapping on the XC skies.County plow right in front of where I work. I walk to work and on the way by the driver rolls down the window and jokingly asked for a push. Lol. We cleared the road with the 9' blower from work but the plow truck is out of our league!

He is still in the hospital, was doing well in recovery but had a setback with infection in one leg. There is a lot of metal in him but he has all his arms and legs and a good attitude. It was a heck of a thing to witness.Did I read correctly, you walk to work in that... I’d be strapping on the XC skies.
BTW how’s that work mate who got caught up on the machinery going?
Great looking new firewood helper!
