    He was a 80's F-150 2wd. My 78 K5 was idling while it pulled him out of some soft sand. Never had to hit the throttle. 3:73s to thank. I didn't even have to rub it in. What made it even better is that he had one of those stupid piss on bowtie decals on his window. The story: I was loading my tackle in the rear of the K5 and heard some revving down the trail. I came upon him and pulled up along side him (me in 2WD). I looked at him and all I said was "got a chain?" He was disgusted and he offered to pay me and I said "naah." It was fun and all worth it to pull out a Ford.

    yea, went and got a new balancer from autozone, but the thing would NOT go on... I ended up doing a little carefull sanding on the inside of the balancer until I could get the thing on with a wood block &amp; BFH (or just my brass hammer, much smaller)...

    I started on it about 3:00, and worked on the stupid thing off and on until about 10:00...

    One time me and a buddy went skiing and were were in his chevy and were were passed on the highway by some guy in a ford with "I`d rather push a Ford than drive a Chevy!" decals in the back window. Sooooooooo..... about 3 or 4 miles down the road here is puss nuts in the ditch stuck in the snow, trying to flag us down. (gotta remember this guy was going way too fast for road conditions) We slow down and roll down the window and when we got close enough to him I simply said "Push It!" and kept on going!! Boy was he pissed!!!!! I laughed all day about that.

    Seen that truck around a while later and it didn't have that sticker on the window any more. Damn that was funny!!

    Man I hate those pi$$ on ---- stickers. I just think they are discusting and small minded. I would make someone scrape it off or walk before I would pull them out.
