Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Wasn't that the vette with the "chrushed in sides" and their six cylinder (was that a 194 cid something, or the high performance 230?) From OLD pictures, that vette in candy apple red was cool. You must be very proud to be part of ancient history!

If Springfield, Kimber, or especially COLT came out with a factory 1911 chambered in 460 Rowland I would jump as the chance to own one!

Just as soon as I get my bookie paid off, I will! I don't know why (yes I do, I am slightly off) but I have already ordered some Buffalo Bore's 185 loads. My stainless 1911s are showing signs of rust from me fantisizing (sic) about them with the 460 comp assembly installed and me slobbering on them. I want to cut down some trees with it for fun. Heeeere, Bigfoot; Heeeere Bigfoot!
