    Any old timers still around?

    Still DDing mine, only major issues have been being bitten by the radiator/transmission failure AFTER the extended warranty expired, driver side window motor dying and a coilpack dying twice.  12 years on and it still drives great and tows all that I currently throw at it without issue.

    Hello from the KC area

    I'm down south in NW Arkansas in that bit of country that gets tossed between mid-west and south-central. Was up that way last spring for the Amelia Earhart festival.

    Thanks. If you're serious about picking up a new camera Sony's A7 series is worth a serious look. The available native mount lenses isn't real great, but most any lens can be used with adapters (I have ones for Canon, Mamiya and Pentax) which lets you pick and choose among the best...

    Went to a photo conference in Little Rock a few weeks back and took advantage of the 110F+ temps on my way back and visited Petit Jean state park. Don't know why but the crowds were nearly non-existent! ;) Forget which overlook this was, but Mt. Magazine can be seen in the distance...

    Has anyone ever tried something like this?

    I'd love to get 15MPG, currently averaging about 12-13 in city. Pretty sure the combination of hills around here and my lead foot are the biggest culprits, but I did see a drop when I switched to the Goodyear AT w/Kevlar in LT trim.

    It'd be trivial to do (with any of the half dozen methods I can quickly think of), but I just abhor selective color photos; rarely do they (IMO) end up looking good. May go back and give it some work to look like an old an faded photo, but after a couple hours of removing the parking spot...
