thanks Marlon. I read a rumor about two days ago that said the Senate might not pass, as there's at least a couple Democrats who are rather uneasy with all the spending and might filibuster it. Who knows where that goes. I read somewhere that if we took the bailout money, and stimulus money

Well, my Caravans both were under $500 and I've gotten a lot of miles for that. I've put perhaps $500 total into repairing them in the last two years, as well. Of course, I do my own mechanic work. I'm better than almost any shop you can find, so why would I pay for inferior work? I guess

We use an old Dodge Caravan. These have drip rails on them to fasten standard ladder racks to, and carry ladders on a rack nicely. We can put our 28 footer on it ok. It overhangs the front bumper a little, but it's ok. I have two of them, and in the last 3 year's we've racked up about

My 93 dodge diesel w/auto generally got about 18 while using it as a service rig. That included lots of idling, driving in town, etc. Not to mention, if you pushed the go pedal it would outrun any other stuck truck. insert witty tagline here -

I'd like to ponit out that the article leaves out some information, and it leaves you with a false impression because of it. It made note of the price of broadband being cheaper in Japan and other places. That's true, but much of the infrastructure was funded by tax dollars, instead of the

What's wrong with a PT for service runs? Good economy (stick, not auto), durable, tolerates our bad roads, since it's engineered as a truck... and unique. With the seats down and whatnot, you can get a lotta stuff into it. insert witty tagline here

Our bucket truck is a Dodge w/cummins and 6 speed.It gets around 16-17 mpg. The fuel is only part of the cost of a truck, though. Tires wear fast, cost a lot to replace... diesels cost more for oil and filter changes than gas rigs. However, it's nice to know that there's 325 HP under

Grin... My '93 wasn't quite stock, but I used to have a timeslip from a dragstrip showing a 16.00 second quarter mile for it. Some sticky tires would have shaved that to around 15... And his excursion would have been absolutely unable to stay infront of it :) I towed a trailer form Oregon to
