Yaaaawwwwnnnnn... (scratch, scratch, scratch).

1.) The transfer station behind Sourdogh Mining company has an oil dump that you can go to for free (I believe you are limited to 5 gal at a time).

2.) Shame on most of you who don't know this because you don't change your own oil... it's frightening that you post technical advice on here.

Now watch Judge Judy be called a racist, a bigot and old fashioned by a certain element.

Entitlements, unearned are the problem. Plenty of local examples.

I had this same discussion with Reeve and Kiwi today... the value of free social programs is perfectly illustrated here.

Well, after 3 weeks totalling nearly 100 hours of OT, I decided to "relax" this evening after work. Had to replenish the liquor cabinet, and while at the store I ran across this cool little bottle


Tried drinking it like my Bourbon, I.E. straight up on the rocks.. Hooo-ahh! Not sure my taste is akin to rocket fuel just yet.. LOL. Oh well, glad I also picked up a replenishment of my standby.


Not necessarily "the best", but is fairly smooth for the price point IMHO.

Anyway, a seemingly useless OTpost, but whatever's.

Y'all have a happy and safe TurkeyDay.

Hey buddy, buy some peach schnapps and mix it to your taste. You should go small amounts, like a shot of each and adjust each accordingly to taste.

Back home when we did the real deal, A mason jar lid full of 190 proof peach moonshine would get you right. Do about a shot every half hour or so to maintain.

Be careful with that stuff. What proof is it?

Yeah, def needs a cutter, for me at least. It actually isn't that bad, its only 80 proof. The Bourbons I usually drink are 90 proof. It's just the taste... Kind of like a good scotch.

"Buick dusting off Grand National, GNX and T-Type nameplates"

This should be interesting. I am glad some of the new cars are coming back around to the performance segment. I hope they do these nameplates justice.

Quote:
Inside Line reports Buick is planning to bring back some of the more storied names from the company's past, including the Grand National, GNX and the T-Type. Those cars rose to prominence in the 1970s and '80s to become performance legends of their day.

The new models will reportedly make use of the rear-wheel drive platform that currently underpins the Cadillac ATS and all would arrive as sedans – according to an unnamed source familiar with the initiative. Odds are the T-Type and the Grand National would share a driveline, with honest money being on a new twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 as the engine of choice. Word has it the mill will be good for anywhere from 350 to 400 horsepower.

That leaves only the GNX. Inside Line seems to think that machine could get down the road with some help from the all-new GM LT1 small-block V8. The engineers behind the ATS platform have already told us the engine bay is large enough for to accommodate the big eight pot, and since GM is most certainly working on an ATS-V, a slightly less powerful, less luxurious Buick iteration makes some kind of sense. We can't wait to see these things in the light of day.

As long as they don't desecrate the nameplates as the big 3 have done in the past. It'll be hard to equal the GNX unless it has CTS-V performance.

It sounds like it will be similar. I'm looking forward to a sinister blacked out rear drive coupe! I like the idea of the CTS-V, but I don't like the looks of the coupe. Maybe the new Buick GNX or any of these new Buicks will be a new style coupe that strikes the right design chord for me.

3100 miles, 60 hours, and lots of 5 hour energy but I got her back up here from Salt Lake.



2010 F350 Lariat Powerstroke, 5" exhaust and tuner should be here tomorrow!

I miss my suby but holy crap this thing is a monster, I think you could live in the cab lol.

It's the nicest pickup interior I have ever been in, pretty impressive for a Superduty.
