Anybody out there?

I know its been a beast of a winter, but is anybody awake up here in the frozen North? Spring is almost here, just a few hours away so there's hope we'll be gettin' our Cobras out of storage soon.

I had my Cobra out a few days so far. It's just too hard to resist when we get an occasional sunny, 50 degree day.

Spring will be here very soon, hang in there!

Yeah, I've been tempted to get my Cobra out but still too much salt on the roads. Besides, its backed into a corner of the pole barn with the tractor in front of it. We're not completely out in the sticks, 8 acres and two horses, so the tractor is used to plow snow. I'll wait a few more weeks.

the weather is warm -- but dreary --
we were happy to get some rain, but now, if the clouds would take a hike we could actually get Trigger out and put the top down!!


the coupe is sitting on the driveway.... I usually cover it, but the wind has been ferocious lately, so I left it off for awhile....

you know how Winddy wind can be....

what kind of horses do you have?

we have two Quarter horses --
both retired...

one is at a College in Kentucky
and the other is on a farm in Iowa....

hey, you should go over to the ladies forum, were having a discussion about our horses there...

.......

ooops, sorry Pam, I didn't realize that was you!!

Yeah, I've been there, Dave replied too. Good draft beer and horses! Both right up my alley. I've got an Arabian and a Norwegian Fjord. Its cloudy here today and looks like rain. Would be good, wash the sand and salt off the roads.

Hi Pam,
I am about an hour south of you. I think the rain we are getting this weekend is going to make the streets ok for the toys to come out.

Hi Brian,
Yeah, this rain has really helped the roads. Think I'll wait a couple weeks yet though, I've seen it snow in April a few times, such a great state we live in! Quite an impressive line-up of toys under your name! Awesome!

I'm just impressed that someone lives NORTH of Brian! LOL

Beautiful weather here in northern Illinois lately, and my Cobra "Helen Wheels" has been out sporadically.

but its worth it!

The sun just poked out here, kinda chilly, only in the 30's. I like having my horses on our property, you really get to know 'em. Sounds crazy I'm sure but if you've had horses you know what I mean. My husband does the mowing and he mows way more than I would. I wanted to fence it for the horses but lost that battle, so he mows, but he's got a John Deere rider so not too bad a deal! Your new place sounds great!

Hey Brian, I have a question, can you recommend a reputable shop where I can get a nice sounding muffler/exhaust for my truck? Its a '95 F-150 in great shape, low mileage (68K), with a nice looking conversion pkg. on it and I'd like to have it sound nice too. I'm shopping around and just thought I'd ask. Thanks for any tips you can offer!

check into the Magnaflow's - they are awesome and reasonably priced.

I heard an F150 with them on and they sounded fantastic and he said that they helped improve the hp a little bit !!
