    2021 F-150?!

    What about it looks different to you?

    New F150 tailgate step?

    Hopefully it doesn't drop down low enough to interfere with a trailer hitch or trailer tongue. Looking at the sketch it appears as though it might. If so, I assume you would also have the option of not folding the tailgate when a trailer is attached.

    Smoke's Bronco

    Saw this on the Ford Performance site. Funny thing is one of my cousins had one the same color as Stewart's back in the early '80s. Even had the same stripe package. His had a 351M originally but I built a mild 460 for it with a 429 CJ cam and a set of custom built headers. That was a very strong running Bronco. https://performance.ford.com/series/stock-car-racing/news/articles/stock-car-racing/2020/3/stewart-time-off.html

    Toro Ad

    Anyone else mute the sound or flip the channel when this comes on? The last thing I want to hear is a slobbering cow chewing its cud.

    Richmond Race Scheduled for Sunday!

    Guessing Larson and Bubba won't be participating....
  8. Your driveway is really wavy. 😉
  9. If what we have seen so far in such a short time since its introduction is any indication the 7.3 may have a few performance fans as well. With its smaller width it would be interesting to see how it fits in a late 60s - early 70s Mustang, Fairlane, etc. Can you squeeze it in one of those without all the modifications necessary for a Coyote swap? We already know how it fits in a Fox body. Could also be a great alternative to the LS craze. The greatest issue that will make that unlikely is the limited availability.
  10. I have to admit I didn't think the aftermarket would touch this "truck only" powerplant. Ford did a really good job of packaging with this thing. Probably a better job than anything they have designed since the original smallblock. It has all the basics covered: reasonably small physical size, lots of displacement, solid internals and decent cylinder heads. It will never flow like a Coyote with 4 valve heads but it has the cubic inches to make usable and reliable power.

  12. And here's the 600 lb gorilla in the room. We could all switch to electric cars today but somebody had better find an environmentally clean, efficient and safe way to produce the electricity to charge all those batteries or it's all a waste of time and money. Nobody is allowed to build a fossil fuel power plant in the US because of climate change fears. No one wants a nuclear power plant anywhere near themselves. Wind, solar and whatever else we have tried so far to replace those two can't meet the demand. You can build all the electric vehicles you want but if you have no way to recharge their batteries you're SOL. Most people would also like to see "build American, buy American" especially considering the pickle we are in right now but that requires more industry which requires even more electric power production. Damned if you do, damned if you don't...

    Homestead NASCAR virtual race on Sunday!

    So nothing has changed. Big money still wins...
  14. I have a family member who is retired but still works part time at Walmart. He said some of the panic buying he is seeing there right now is ridiculous. One lady has been there multiple times this week alone. The last time he saw her she had her young daughter with her (all local schools are closed) and between the two of them they had four shopping carts packed full. The lines at the checkouts are never ending. So much for social distancing. And no TP. What the hell do people think they are going to do with all that TP? I suppose you could make a mask with it as long as it wasn't previously used for its original intention...🙄💩
  15. Living in the sticks or just going off-road and driving on dirt/gravel roads it's not unheard of (pun intended) to get small stones wedged in between the brake rotor and say, a heat shield which can cause a squeal.
