    For the record:

    I am neither crotchety or crusty.

    I just have a low tolerance for dumb, ignorant, complacence, boring and lazy.

    I learn new s hit every day, and typically,..I'll integrate the new stuff I learn into something I'm working on.

    I will cop to having some worn out parts.

    The one that counts still works good though.:banana:

    I'm 56.

    Somehow I seemed to have avoided the buying of things that didn't work out well or removing of stuff that came with the car. Maybe it's inertia, since I am older that anyone else (68) including Madmike1157, or the fact that my wife spends all the money on the yard and garden before I can stake my claim.

    Sitting out in my garage are a bunch of things like a T/C rear axle with 3.55 gears and rear disk brakes, a Explorer/GT40 intake manifold and a set of Ford Racing shorty SS headers. Maybe some wintery day I'll take some time off and install them...If inertia and the Honey Do list don't gobble up my time and spare $$ first... :rolleyes:

    Right when I thought I was the youngest someone comes along and proves me wrong. Anyway, I'm on a tight-ish budget as well. I refuse to change out my 2.73 gears :cool:
