GOODMORNINGDIESELRAM...Went to Costco and filled the'12 with diesel $2.83 a gallon. I remember when I bought old red the price was $0.75 a gallon, of course there may have been a few dinosaurs roaming around still. Nigel would know.

Rainy 50's today and no dumptruckin'.
The pressure plate & clutch disc are badly worn, so new ceramic/Kevlar clutch single disc & 3800# pressure plate and throw-out bearing acquired for Cornbread Red.
The flywheel is resurfaced and all will be reassembled tomorrow.
Had to return the Edge Drag Comp....the LED were staying On and no control. Should hear from them soon.

Ugh!, yes I do. I remember filling the 91 to the brim for under $40.00 Canadian. Thats a 120 litre tank. Weren't as many diesel trucks on the road around the year 2000 as there are now. I also remember when gasoline was 35 cents a canadian gallon. I remember when the Canadian dollar was worth more than the American dollar, by 25 cents I believe. But unlike BRD, I wasn't around when God made dirt.

I remember filling the old hot rod with leaded premium at 50 cents a gallon. Currently I can get diesel for $2.80 a gallon.

30 and still snowing. Monday it was clear and below zero. Tuesday I woke up to snow and it hasn't stopped yet. Got 11" yesterday alone, 3 or more today, even more tomorrow. I hope this doesn't cancel the delivery of my new fridge today.

Wow!!! Im up before JFJ, I better get the coffee going so you can all swing by.
Sunny, near freezing mark this morning. Wish I could just stay in bed, but the wifey works me harder than I do at work, so I'd better get moving. Everyone have a good day.
