Chuck, I was thinking of just that movie skit when I wrote my comment. That was one hilarious movie!!! Gene Wilder and the sheep were the highlight... Or was it the giant boobie roaming the countryside? Or Woody Allen as a sperm... Or... :mrgreen:

That pic ruins any chance at being a Supreme Court justice, but would make him eligible for being a US Senator.....

Both Woody and Mel were my go-to Movie Makers during my formative years. Is still laugh at their movies.


As far as running for office, I'd never pass the background checks for anything higher than dog-catcher. Maybe not even that.

So I ordered and received a universal wiring harness for the car. The steering wheel/column I have is a Chevy clone. I down loaded the wiring schematic for the column and the hair stood up on my neck when I read the lettering.

Holy Shite!!! That is entirely too weird!!! :shock:

No, wait a minute here Perry... You started smokin' something rolled and gold and wonderful (per Shel Silverstein) since you been out there in Cannabis-fornia??? Firstly- You ain't got no hair nowhere on that big ol' chrome dome of yours... And Secondly- Google shows "JK LMNP" on a GM column wiring diagram. I think maybe you altered the lettering on that diagram. Still funny as hell!!! Had me goin' for a second there... :rofl:

That also means Lonnie can relax...

I was guessing that his continued presence here meant that the fling w/ the sheep / goat was over?

Well after a 243 day hiatus from this build I committed fabrication yesterday.
Made a throttle cable from scratch. Also fabbed up a gas pedal and mounted it.

Nice, Perry. I wonder why I didn't notice those unusual door handles before? Kind of a cool looking recess for them.

Cheers,
