    That sure looks just like the antenna that fell off my truck when I stopped for some BBQ along the road around Cross City....
    Just where did you find that thing..???? Does it still have pieces of marshmellows on it..?

    If they stop making metal hangers...we are all in trouble....

    The funnest part was go'n out in the woods (back yard) and see'n who could find the longest, Then who's was the biggest to dive into that BIG patch (snakes) to cut it off.....Ahhh..... The good ole days, Today's kids have no idea what they miss out on.......

    Back in the day, I was a big time recycler before it was fashionable. It's amazing what people will throw out here in South Jersey. Besides marshmellows, you can add rabbit and squirrels to your BBQ

    Yea, there would be alot of mufflers dragging on the road:rolleyes:

    These modern gadgets have raised a generation of mindnumb robots...
    They could care less about the truly simple pleasures in life...
    They will never have the fun of snipe hunts...drive in movies...bobbing for cheerleaders...and other cool stuff...
    Try to find one that wants to work.....

    There are still shops out there using this grinder. The shop that ported my Mustang heads uses this grinder and they're very good with it.

    BTW, I've been watching this thread. I have a few tools here that stump every person that sees them but thats for another day.
