    Good Lord that sounds chincy. If my car sounded like that I'd shoot it.

    P.S.
    At least they ended up where they belong..................in a junkyard.

    Re: Some weirdness encountered in the junkyard...

    Ranger and ELDO GUY would remember the junk like those whistles that lined the shelves at old "go fast" parts stores in the 50's and 60's. There was a gimmick a week to go along with the different new magic snake oils (many of which are still around).

    What was the windmill that went in the air cleaner ?? - or the magnet that clamped around the fuel line to "align the gas molecules".

    Ahh, the "tornado" and the fuel line magnet. Guaranteed to increase HP AND fuel mileage.

    For the sucker who was born every minute.
