And I took my wife and kids to the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles. Ever since, she has said that as soon as the kids go off to college she wants a Shelby Mustang Convertible, stick-shift, of course.
And I am honestly with RR and Toby about Yeadon: I don't believe that you should stick around and tilt at windmills by fighting for a lost cause. I would probably stick around in Lansdowne or Drexel Hill and fight the good fight, were I from those areas. I can't see myself trying to hold back the onrushing tide in Castor Gardens, though. Collingswood, Mt. Airy, and Fishtown all at one point seemed lost, as did most of South Philly, but they all came roaring back. But some places, like Bensalem (with the exception of Andalusia), just aren't worth saving, when the time comes for the knock on their door.

I can photograph it for you if you wish. The BUDD site makes a nice backdrop
I trust High End Vine at 12&Vine for all electronic work. Im friends with the big guy at Directed (the comoany who manufacturers most of the car alarms on the market) and they all point to High End Vine for Philly work. They did a good job on my dads truck, and my last car. Eventually I will bring them my car for a remote start....bc I like dorky stuff like that. My factory audio, NAV and security are pretty robust fortunately.
I'm not defending what happened in Yeadon. My only point was that my gfs parents moved for different reasons, well before the white flight happened. Supposedly Yeadon High was a good school when my gfs parents were kids. We all know how crappy William Penn is now.
ps. If his wife doesnt like the Ttype, let me know
I'll take the plow off tomorrow and let you know. I want to check out the set for the Shamalan movie - I went there with my wife and she didn't have the chutzpah to go inside - a shame, because I heard that the styrofoam anchor chains and such are incredibly realistic.
My mother has a black 83 Regal with a V6 as a daily driver. We bought it for her a few years ago for $1,100. Since then my brother bought a clean (I think) T-type, and I think that he sold that to buy the engagement ring, then he had seller's remorse and bought another one. He has about 12-14 cars and trucks so it is hard to keep track of what he has. He's now selling his 69 El Camino and 69 de Ville convertible. They're both good running project cars, if anybody is interested. His baby is a 70 Chevelle Malibu he bought for $500 from Upper Darby when he was 14 years old. Since then he has converted the trans to a 4-speed, installed a rebuilt 454 with nitrous, put in a 4.11 posi rear, etc, etc. The irony is that it is sharp looking and sounding, but I don't enjoy riding in it. I'll take the fresh air in my convertible any day of the week.
yea billy there is nothing like a convertible. I never had one till last year and never knew what I was missing!
I have dual residencies-nj is by far the crooked state in the union/what is the big deal about NJ??You have not traveled much if you make such a fuss about NJ.Treat yourself to a 90 day Greyhound pass this summer,check out the rest of the country,see how excited you will be about Jersey after the cross country trip-I like Jersey but there are many places in the US that are much better-too much family keeps me here
I do/have traveled.. You don't know me. don't ASSume you do
don't have to tobias. its laughable. Let me see. a dog killed or 50 PEOPLE in the last year.. Which is worse. let me think about it..
all I know is.. according to crime stats.. My old hood is about a 10 time better chance of any crime happening to me then where we moved to. I think thats a pretty decent step up
