Re: 1968 XR7G 36x48" Mercury Dealer Showroom poster reprints for sale

I'd love to have one of these and in the original size. Compared to what I spend on Cougar parts even $100 would be worth it (to me). Rich Truesdell has been selling large prints of his photos I can see where he is getting them done.

Re: Replace rag joint with u joint on tilt column

In a straight shot there shouldn't be a problem. Only if you are having to make a bend. The reason that I mentioned it is that a hot rod that I have been helping with required a pretty goofy looking extension to reach around the exhaust and to the steering rack and we had to add an additional u join...

Re: Third member swap...

I don't recall ever seeing a forum post where someone blew up an 8" Ford axle in anything less than and all out drag race with some very big HP numbers. Has any one ever had an 8" that failed in street driving? The reason that I ask is that I am contemplating putting a set of 3.89 rear gears in my s...

Re: Replace rag joint with u joint on tilt column

A rag joint is actually a better choice if there is much angle involved. U-Joints change velocity unless they are in pairs and properly phased.

Re: The February 2018 Ride of the Month is Charlie Brown's '67 XR-7

My world has been pretty upside down lately. My brother in law that I have known for about 48 years, passed away suddenly Tuesday the 30th. He watching the State of the Union address and when my sister went to see if he was ready for bed he had already passed. She never heard a thing. This past Tues...
