Poor Hemi guys

I was out in the "big" city of valpo Indiana just hangin out, and a brand new 1500 short bed 4x4 hemi pulls up. I kind of knew the kid, so thinking no way he would take it I told him I would sit him out 1 truck in the 1/4 for $50. Well I ended up giving him 1.5 trucks and we raced for $50. I slept at the line BIG TIME b/c the flagger went before I turned my lights on (that means I'm spolled and ready) but i went anyways. Anyway I got him by about 4 trucks at the 1/4 mark, got my $50, and it didn't even fill my tank over 3/4!

Thats funny, don't you just love these gas engine truck guys? There isn't a truck out there, except a lightning or SRT/10 that can beat me. I'm talking OE trucks not hopped up. Hell, I've even beat a 5.9 R/T Dakota, that was only a couple of weeks ago. We only went to 70 mph and I had him by almost 2 trucks.

Yeah, I do need to make it down. I doubt I will make it friday. Besides my truck having blown head gaskets (studs should be here friday) I have got too much corn to plant. Got to make it a early day saturday.

That's cool dude. We'd love to have you and whoever join us for a weekend cruise. Sucks about the gaskets man! I hear you on the corn.....when I first moved into this house we had farmland around us. Now it's mostly been built up by housing. I remember how fascinated I was by all the machinery as a kid. So fascinated that I got a buttload of those little ertl farmtoys sittin around. I don't know how much it's all worth now, I look on e-bay every now and then and see a few things I have going for decent prices....

Oh man, no way....not for sale! Many of these I've had for quite a while, back when I was like 8 or 9. I didn't know farm toys existed until one day I was walking through at TSC with my grandpa.....I looked down an aisle full of farm toys and about pooped my pants getting all excited. I was more into the 1/64 stuff, easier to collect and takes up less room. But i've got a few 1/32 and 1/16 stuff.
Here's what I got in my room....
