    The Shuttle Endeavour Last Flight in So Cal

    I was down in Newport Beach, so I drove up to Harbor Ridge which would have the best view of OC. but it was a little to cloudy and smoggy, but I was able to see it going over Disneyland from a long distance and then it took a quick turn to the right and headed for Long Beach. My brother's...

    ford sales are killing it, but sync is killing ford

    I agree with that article. I have a 2011 Edge Sport and have had a lot of problems with the sync system. I have upgraded it 3 times with the last one that Ford sent to me and have still some issues with it. For no reason the radio will either not come on or it will not go off. Also when you...

    Yeah! But his 4th. Wedding Aniv. is coming up on the 23rd. of this month. But he has been working on a brake system for the front and he plan's on doing a major write up on it when he's finished with it. So that's about it for now.

    Gas prices

    Here in the O.C. I saw one Texaco station had diesel at $4.29. I payed $3.77 for Reg. this morning at a Mobil Station. Sure glad I got rid of my F-450. 38 gal. tank at 4.29 that's $163.02 and that would only last a week. Take that time's 4 if it stay's at that price and my monthly gas bill would...

    Fabulous Fords Car Show April 10, 2011

    Tbar, I won't be able to make it. I have to take a client down to Carlsbad that day to show them some landscape material's at a nursery down there. This place closes down in the winter month's and doesn't open up until the first of April. I start going down there almost every Sunday for...

    Fabulous Fords Car Show April 10, 2011

    I wish we could take our Ex. to it. It's one of the first Ex. to be built. I ordered it in May 1990 as a 1991 and took delivery in July 1990. Some things that were on the first Ex. like the small shock mount on the engine block which was later taken off is still on the truck. Maybe next year...

    2011 recall already on the Explorer

    I saw in the paper today, that Ford is already recalling the 2011 Explorer for a faulty second row seat. It doesn't meet the Federal Safety code. I guess the second row seat can be reclined and it might not hold when in an accident. It's a dealer fix. My new 2011 Edge Sport has reclining seat's...

    Autoweek's 2011 Explorer Article

    Winter has been working on the rock slider's with air tank's, I really do not know what the status is on them. Since I was not pushing the build at the moment I will have to see where he's at with them. Also do not remember if he has the hinge's yet or not. With all the snow Calif. got in the...

    Autoweek's 2011 Explorer Article

    No, I decided to sell it with the truck. It was already 10 year's old. They (the dealer) already resold the truck. Took only 2 week's. Besides the rafter is now holding a bunch of Ex. part's, so I could not put it back on it. What's more important, Ex. part's or a shell.

    Autoweek's 2011 Explorer Article

    Stico, yea I got an Edge. With gas going back up and the Ex. still being work on, I decided to get rid of the F-450 for now at least. The Mini Copper will be gone this month (it was a 2 yr. lease, just for fun). Here are some picture's of it. Of course it's Black (Tuxedo Black Metallic) what...

    Autoweek's 2011 Explorer Article

    Well let's not get to work up about this article. After re-reading it again, I think the author got his info direct from Ford Marketing. Ford must have done it's marketing survey to see what pass explorer owner's really use their vehicle for's and what they wanted in future explorer's and that...

    Autoweek's 2011 Explorer Article

    What I could not agree with, is the statement that ZERO ever did any off-roading like rockcrawling. Anyone who know's me know's that I have taken our truck on many a rockcrawling trip, includeing Rick's and many more on this site. I also mention in my letter that Ford had been on a few of our...

    Autoweek's 2011 Explorer Article

    I just got my weekly Autoweek mag. today, and inside is an article of the new Explorer. What caught my attention, was the very first sentence of the article. Quote: "Among Past Ford Explorer owners, only 17 percent ever went off-road". Then a little more into the article, again quote: "And of...

    If I won, I wouldn't stay in CA. The state taxes would eat it up! Remember CA. is broke.

    4X4 Christmas Present??

    Well I did not win the big pot, but I did win $3.00 (oh! boy!), so I will reinvest by winning's once again. One of my brother's and sister-in-law's both out of state, had me buy them $5.00 each ticket's, but no win. So, generous as I am, I will use my 3 buck's and buy each of us one ticket, but...

    Truck Haven 2011 January 15-16 MLK Weekend

    Sorry to say, but I will have to bail out on this one also. I just got notified again (second time) that my refrig. in the motorhome has another recall and that I can not use it due to a possible fire. It will take 4 to 6 week's to get the part and have it installed by Camping World. Have a fun...
