  1. RUSS from Monday

    Great Show.....Bobby Joe was a legend. Watched Ronnie grow up. We pitted next to him (me and Dave Cooke) at Longhorn, Junior Medlock behind Bobby Joe in the panel truck and Shawn Grimland behind us. Lots of good times. Luther (Papa) always sat and talked to me and yes, they drove the car about a mile north to Southside Jeep after the race, Can confirm. I miss our times together on Saturday nights but stirred up great memories from hearing this. I remember when Bobby Joe first started Southside wrecker and had about 2 trucks. He worked for SW Bell before that as I recall. He built the business and they grew and grew. I guess Ronnie has it now. Jim Pallas built the #1 car for Ronnie and they used Joe White to build engines. Great times...Really enjoyed this one Bobby + Rodney...Thx
  2. Well they finally did....not since 1960

    Howdy Texas Tornado....Beg to differ, we aren't ganging up on Tim, merely having a discussion about shocks and what they cost (and what they do) We're somewhat perplexed and confused because we know what shocks do and simply disagree with what Tim says. Most of us are over the age of 60 (me) and been around long enough to know what they do. When our knowledge is questioned, we rely on smarter and more knowledgeable people than ourselves (Nick) and that's as nice as I can put it. I am simply fascinated at the technology and the cost of speed (as Josh42 states above). Please don't read into this as an attack on Tim, it isn't. We just won't be told that a duck dives under concrete when we know it flies. Stirring the pot on LSSZ will be challenged by facts...that's my attraction to this site

    Nick, could you enlighten us once more to what a "competitive" set of front shocks cost these days? You told me the number a couple of years ago and it was in the thousands if I'm not mistaken. I guess the $5.00 a piece ones I bought as a teenager at Sears (guaranteed for life) won't cut it anymore. One more thing after you tell us the price; Is it the engineering or the materials that make these shocks out of reach for most people?

    Who do we want it done to? At this moment I want it done to nobody but lets hear the others tell us differently
