Why Women Live Longer Than Men


Recommended Posts

We just lost a car enthusiast in our area last monday. He was removing his drive shaft on his 64 Chevy when the car rolled down the ramps and chrushed him. I guess he didn't realize the car would roll when he disconnected the drive shaft........he was 62

I actualy saw this happen with my own eyes and a witness present to verify to me that he saw it the same way:

Ford picup coasting down hill about 10 mph with hood up and man standing on front bumper looking down into engine compartment. Some child about 5 years old standing on front seat of picup doing the steering.

Neighbor loading an 8N ford tractor onto the back of a 1/2 Ford picup truck. Claimed he hauled it 300 miles that way. Myself and a neighbor saw him get him get to the main road with it.

Doug, I was looking at the picture kinda closely....the guy under the truck looks vaguely familiar...that is not YOU is it??? <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> I wonder if there were survivors???

Hey, did you see...the garage is under roof! If it does not rain today, I may have a concrete floor!

Years ago we sold an XK150 Jaguar to a fellow. He put it on a single axle utility trailer a good 4 feet shorter than the car, tied it down using only cheap hardware store small diameter bunji cords and washline cord and headed off on the 300 mile trip home. We tried to talk him out of it. He made it safely. His check cleared as well. He got the last laugh, the car was a '58 XK150 S Roadster for which we were happy to get $3500. Advertised that sucker for several months before it sold. This was in 1978 or '79.

Restorer 32, coincidentally I purchased a 1960 Jaguar XK 150 S OTS (roadster) with a 3.8 litre engine in 1978 rather than the more common 3.4 litre engine. Unless you were living in Fort Lauderdale at the time, it wasn't your Jaguar. Also, I drove the car home under its own power and continued enjoying it till 1986 when I sold it and all my other cars except for what my wife to this day calls the reliable one...a 1973 Jaguar E-Type Convertible. Since then I have bee more interested in CCCA Classics. But I still have the E-Type.
