      Having stayed at a Holiday Inn at least once, if Ed would drop his voice a 1/2 octave or so AND sing; he could standin for Johnny Cash!!

          Atta boy!


          Oh man... :rofl:
          I do actually drop my voice a tad for my wife occasionally - she loves it when I do. Hey, I ain't knockin' it.


          Thanks - and I do believe I owe @Cranky a follow up video here this afternoon.
          Stay tuned - I hope. :)

                Oh yeah I do. A promise is a promise and it's uploading as I type this, for better or worse...


                Say what? I thought Gold meant no limit on mailbox size??
                Sheesh ok ok, I'll go delete some stuff....
                EDIT: It says I'm only 12% Full??

                  @moparedtn Here is my walk around video. I like yours better! I did a driving video too, but YouTube blocked it because I used a song as part of the soundtrack.

                    Very good sir - but let's see a NEW one, too!
                    By the way, I'm adding you to the list of FBBO folks with their own YouTube channels over on
                    that thread as well.
                    Thanks! :thumbsup:

                          Is that what it's called? :lol:

                          Thanks :)

                          BTW it was my inbox that was full. It stated that I couldn't send any messages. I too thought Gold didn't have any limits.

                              Watching that second video again this morning (and yes, cringing a lot), it strikes me that Fred
                              sure sounds like a Mopar. He's far from fast or anything but boy, when he gets to singing
                              up in the RPM's a bit, all those old memories get stirred up...

                              I was having a PM with a member here recently who had asked what cam is in Freds' 440 and
                              what he might use in his.
                              After telling him and giving out the usual caveat about how 50 years of cam technology
                              has certainly produced better profiles and such, I then explained why I stuck with the
                              purpleshaft 484 in Fred - namely, that the cam sounded Mopar to me.

                              Other, smarter and more knowledgeable folks than me can explain why old Mopars have their
                              very distinct cadence to their V-8's; all I know is that I can still spot one coming from a distance
                              simply by hearing it before seeing it (unless it's been modified a bunch; then it's harder to tell).

                              Small block Mopars have it too, but the big block engines have that whole vibe in spades and I
                              simply was missing that Mopar piece in my life the years between leaving the hobby, then returning to it.
                              It might go all the way back to childhood for me and the family '68 Monaco wagon with a 383,
                              but that unmistakable rumble/cadence is ingrained in my soul.

                                You're right and just listening to the starter as it comes to life tells the other half of the story. It's a Mopar! You got a bitchin ride!! Ulli.
