Re: Idiots you work for

Well this is my oldtimer, get away, land machine, and your right, that works too. It is a 1923 Ford Track-T, weighing 1790 lbs, powered by a 383 stroked sbc into a Tremec 5 speed manual and a Jag 3.54 IRS.

Drool. Nice scenery, too. You're having far too much fun for your own good; I'm willing to shoulder part of the burden to help you out....when you're driving that beauty, I'll keep your boat out sailing, and vicky versa. Deal?

Re: Idiots you work for

Bit of a stretch between Germany and California, but I'm game. As a HAM radio operator, I have swapped homes and vehicles before. The top picture is at Yosemite which is a couple of hours from my home and the 2nd picture is Coloma, where John Marshall discovered gold, thus leading to the Gold Rush that populated the West.

Re: Idiots you work for

I can't say that I've worked for too many idiots in my time. A couple but nothing serious. I do however work for people who are company men, grafted at the hip to company bean counters.

That may well be even worse than idiots.

Nice distinction and probably very true
