    A week ago I hauled this thing home not knowing if it ran or would run.

    After adding all the missing and bad parts as well as some 35's off my Crew Cab, I took it out today and had some fun.

    It didn't do too bad for open diff's and for being into it $850. Well, I paid $700 for it as it sat non-running with small tires, fuel on my trip when I picked it up cost $330 so that adds up to $1030, then I sold the older Honda 3-wheeler that I got in the back of it for $80, and sold the factory Tach gauge cluster out of it for $100, so that brings me back down to $850 plus a few parts I had.

    My old yellow truck I owned earlier this year and my new red one.

    Hey Allen-

    Total hijack - but are you coming to the April swap meet again this year? Any chance you're going to part with a Dana 60?

    I should be going to the Swap Meet if all goes as planned, but I won't be selling any Dana 60's. I re-calculated them all and if I get two more I will have one for every vehicle I have. A couple times I've gotten hard up for money, but managed to not sell one yet.

    Will you be at the Swap Meet?

    It's the big one in Portland, at the Expo Center and the Racetrack nextdoor.

    So who owns that modifed Blazer? I am talking about the flat black one that has every body panel re-molded. I have been wanting to take a close look at that thing for years for ideas on how to modify my rig. I used to see it running around north Spokane but haven't seen it in a long time.

    Got more pics of it?

    Better yet, I can get you in touch with the owner.

    He's done all he can to keep it street legal by Wa. state laws. Let me know if you want to get in touch with him, or I'm sure we'll see him around at other get togethers this year.

    Yeah, send him my email address or phone number. That is the truck that I was talking about on my website when I first started it...on the featured rides page I begged anyone with knowledge of that rig to let him know I wanted to feature it and take a closer look!

    So what do you think of the new videos page set-up?
    http://mudallica.50megs.com/Videos.html

    I realized one small glitch tonight. A couple videos were going to be in the sequence more than once since there is a section for my vids, your vids, and Thunder Valley vids. I have both of our Thunder Valley vids in our own sections and in the Thunder Valley section.

    The glitch is it is the same file in both points of the loop. So the next and previous buttons might not take you to the next and previous videos according to where you clicked into the loop at.

    Would you rather have the "Econo-burban" vids in the Mountain Explorers section or the Thunder Valley section?

    PS- Since I am the webmaster I took the liberty of placing Downriver Days 2005 in my section, even though your stepside is in it. It had sweet action of my Bronco in it!

    I guess I could make duplicate pages with working links... what are your thoughts?
