Hope you do a thread tweak, that stuff is neat. Just read yours Rusty, I totally missed that one. The kids must have loved that mod!

Well, depends on how you look at it.
#1 I'm on Airport property in Indy with tight security and video surveillance. Detectives and airport security were reviewing the video this afternoon.
#2 It was low on gas - HA HA!
#3 This is the actual text from my Insurance Agent a couple weeks ago:

Good Morning Rusty!

I received your email and have the pricing for the Ford Explorer. It is an increase of $95.56 per six months for liability only / or an increase of $246.54 per six months for full coverage. I tried to call you but your voice mailbox is full. I went ahead and added the vehicle full coverage for now to get coverage on it. If you want to changes this please let me know.

Thanks,

------ Crawford
Office Manager


I'll call it a push of Good/Bad luck.

Revenge for finding them possibly?

Maybe, see #1 - 3. Perhaps I get the last laugh......


Chance are, they'll find it less the wheels and tires. If it's not totally destroyed, I'll just get another set of wheels n tires and move on. Next week, it's shoulder surgery time from last April's wreck. I have a backup vehicle luckily.

I'm guessing that you'll come out on top in the end again, at least financially that is... When you get it back we should design an anti-theft system for it. Maybe a home made fuel pump cut off, disarms when you unlock the door with a remote. Pretty simple, especially if you install a remote starter. Can put in a momentary contact switch under the dash to allow you to manually disarm it too if you want.

Good luck with the shoulder and getting Ellie back.

If I get her back definitely doing this. I the meantime, I picked up a $600 Craigslist special.
A '94 Ranger Splash. Picture to follow.
Thanks for your sympathy dudes.

It's kinda girly, but WTH?

Broken leaf springs and a rotted spring hanger. Exhaust is S__T.

I like it, lower the front, turn it into a street truck, not sure about the pin stripe.
What's her name?

That can easily be made very sweet! I love Rangers as much as I love Explorers!

Yeah! Some wheels and proper stance, new bumpers, loose the stripe and it's a sweet ride.
