    Great find

    Maybe with the diesels they can use the cooking oil from around the park to power the trucks. Part of the time. I've never had a diesel or looked into what it takes to use the cooking oil but maybe there could be a little savings and a carbon footprint improvement

    Nice assessment The Master. I should have waited for you to check out the photo. I went with the torque converter. well, because there is something there and its not a transmission and its not part of the engine. Its not a clutch, pressure plate or flywheel so I had no other ideas. And it has the shape. But it was just a guess. As I said, I don't know anything about tractors so your knowledge is fun to me.
  6. You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

    Was that you? I'm sorry. (kidding) On the note of bad drivers, Here is something that happened to me at least 3 times. I'm cursing down the parkway doing 75, oops, I mean 65 and I'm in the left lane to go through the high speed EZpass and someone STOPS right in front of me. Well in my Fusion it seems the anti-lock breaks work. I was pushing the break with all I had and didn't think I was going to stop but I did. The guy waited for me to go around him (I was so close he had to inch up before I could go around) then he backed up on the parkway, the fast lane mind you, so he could cut across the lanes and go into the toll booths. The first time was so much more satisfying when I was cursing up in my big old F150. That didn't have anti-lock breaks so it made a nice loud tire growl as they locked up and left a trail of rubber on the parkway. The poor teenager in the back seat, his eyes almost popped out of his head and got wider as I got closer. I don think he was keen on having a ford emblem tattoo and I assume only seeing a ford grill in the rearview gave the driver a scare. I know not being able to see much of his trunk lid after I stopped had my heart pounding. Now, I'm not a tail gaiter I promise you. These were people who stopped short on the parkway just because they didn't know how to pay their toll and didn't want a ticket. What is wrong with people? LOL that should be the last line of all what really grinds my gears.

    Along with the missing seating, steering, gear shift, maybe even transmission (it looks like the torque converter but nothing else). Even at the time of this picture that tractor had been out of commission for a while. Without the body parts and little more than a engine block and frame its hard to tell a make, model, and year. Going by the green frame and red wheels I am guessing its a tractor manufactured by Oliver. That said I will leave you with this disclaimer. I know nothing about tractors or tractor manufacturers. I guessed at the manufacturer from this information I got form this web page. https://countrysidenetwork.com/daily/homesteading/tractors-farm-equipment/tractor-paint-colors-breaking-the-code/ "Most Oliver farm tractors are the dark green with red wheels."

    I always hear how bad it is to go to Philly as a fan of another team. I've never had an issue there. I go in my Mets gear and nobody says a word to me.
  9. LOL Yes. Lets just put pants on Donald and even Porky so we can clean this up. Its hard to say what's more important without knowing the numbers but I believe that the merchandise sold at the park for DC outweighs the Loony Tunes merchandise but you wont see the DC characters doing the dance party and I expect the Loony Tunes have more people taking pictures than the DC characters so the Loony Tunes add more to the atmosphere of the park. I think you need them both..
  10. Where are you going in 2018?

    My wife is leaning toward Great Escape because she wants to stay on property. I assume its the smallest of the bunch and may also be the least crowded. I loved going to New England and would like to share it with the family. I've heard the SFA is a great place to go also and since I want to go to all of them I'm no good in the decision making.

    Yea but how long will it take for our Mets to be good again :-)
  12. Patterns You Have Noticed

    I remember the Rough Riders in history. Does that count? They weren't exactly rangers but they were a cavalry. That's close. Even Theodore Roosevelt was a Rough Rider. I kid. You said your interested in History so I went with the first think that came to mind. Oh, Walker was the most powerful ranger of all. Walker of the Texas Rangers. Not to be confused with the Texas Rangers who had Alex Rodriguez who had some power in his bat. OK, I will stop

    I'm late to this conversation but all of the responses seem to have overlooked something. Maybe it wasn't driven at 140 MPH before but maybe it has been now, by The Master!!!!!!
  14. Where are you going in 2018?

    As most of us here, Great Adventure For my 50th in June, my wife wants to take me to one of the other Six Flags parks that are in driving distance. So maybe Six Flags America, Six Flags New England (I've been but not the rest of the family) or Great Escape. I also hope to get to Seaside to ride Hydrus
