YEESH! I have a 4bdr 2 bath house that I got for 230k with a pool.

the most attractive thing is the hours with oil companies...they have what is called the 9-80 schedule so mon-thur you work 9 hours and then the first week you work 8 hours on friday and then next friday you have off so every other weekend is a 3 day weekend.....

And since I grew up working 12-14 hours on the family farm since I was 10 the hours are appealing on their own....its just so HOT here....and me and my wife love the beach

Peppe....what if you piped your houses in a way so that the water goes into the hotter rad first and then goes into the rad getting the cool, fresh air, second and then back into the blocks....if that makes sense?

I guess it would be like precooling it before it went into the second rad.....doing my best to explain waht I mean but its kinda hard to do with words.

With WC the order of a loop really doesn't matter at all in spite of what you might hear from just about anyone else.

But I think I have it covered with all the suggestions I got here. So far Kevin's idea seems the most fitting to me but I did appreciate all inputs.
Thanx guys!

Anyway I decided last night to put the build on the back burner for now. I'm buying two motorcycles (one for the beautiful bride) and finances are thight these days. Maybe next winter I'll get back to my rig building.

Cheers all ! biggrin.gif

Been married for 7 years, "my beaytiful bride" is just what I call the wife. She also likes it when I refer to her as the girlfriend.

I'm getting a Shadow Phantom 750 cc for myself. It's a cruiser (harley type if you will) so not really in your taste.
I like to tinker with everything I own, cruisers allow you to do that a lot when customizing it.

But the wife is getting a CBR250R, a small sized crotch rocket like a Ducati.
http://motorcycle.honda.ca/sport/cbr250r

Mine is 8,000$, hers is 5,000$.
A Ducati Streetfighter 848 (the smallest) would start at around 14,000$. And the insurance would be a killer too.

Me, I'm scared of sports bikes, they look nice, they have the technology, but I would kill myself on one of those ......and they are harder to personalize.
The beautiful bride claims that's why she wants a sports bike, so I can't eff around with hers......we'll see about that. biggrin.gif

ah nice,
the streetfighters are the expensive side arent they for the ducatis? I believe the 696 is more reasonable but I understand why you dont want one....insurance is a big deal....

I am in the middle of trying to sell my baby....1972 Mach 1 w/ 351 Cleveland and 4 speed hurst tranny. was my first car and got her when I was 14 and worked on her with my dad so there is alot of passion for me with it but sometimes you have to let go of things to survive.....

My wife actually wants me to hold onto it because its the car I took her on our first date in 6 years ago....but its just sitting and we are sharing a car right now which doesnt work....

I'd say to try to hold on to your Mach 1 if you can (especially if your wife is ok with it), but I understand that sometimes you have to do what you have do do... It reminds me of a '68 Z28 Camaro my dad bought for an ill fated tune-up business. We had good times with that car. Ultimately, he had to sell it it. I did everything I could to scrape up money trying to buy it, but no go... and I'm probably alive today because of it biggrin.gif

Jim,
Im not far from you so if you are interested ill give you my best price if you throw in a case! haha

Just too many finance problems as of late and things not going right....such as my fence blowing over....

I would love to have had a z28! Those things are hard to find now too. There is one lawyer here in town who is beverly hill billy rich(found oil on his land....texas tea) and he has some amazing old muscle cars. 69 cuda, daytona, 69 charger, original chrysler 300 with the split carberator engine(dont know the name), and then I know he has one ferrari for sure....

Im sorry this thread is WAY off topic because of me....

Hell, hijacking a thread over cars and scooters is a very forgiveable offence.

Still waiting for mine, ecpecting it on the first of July. Here's a picture of it. It doesn't do it justice, looks a lot better in person. It is 2 years old in absolute mint condition. I got it for a steal too. Comes with an aftermarket Short Shot staggered pipes, sissy bar, saddle bags, and a FI computer which he never installed. 4,200 km on her.

http://www.hondashadow.net/forum/attachments/technical-discussion/4121d1327993752-short-shots-installed-phantom-pictures-imag0211.jpg

It's not my scooter, but mine looks exactly the same.
