    Hiya Joe ! .

    Long time folks ave been trying to put money in your pocket....

    North Hollywood really is a pit (think armpit) , it was bad when I worked there decades ago @ the 170 Fwy. & Sherman Way but at the same time there used to be all those killer good junkyards and I lost track of all the fantastic eateries....

    Then there's Troost Av. ~ yow .

    ....I had to run off part way through posting that last note .

    I'm sure you remember HAWK Auto Parts, the VW junkyard right near the steam plant ? .

    They stopped being VW only long ago but still had piles of hard parts when I was sorting out my 1968 VW # 211 one ton parcel delivery van .

    For me, the 1970's were a very good and fun time .

    Yea I spent a lot of time at Hawk back when I was into VW's....they helped me keep my 68 bug on the road for years.

    Hi I'm looking for an outside visor to fit my 53 Chevy 3100 that has the aftermarket 1 piece winshield as well. Can you tell me where to buy one with the adapted middle support brackets? Thanks Wayne.

    DeadZone is the man you want to connect with.
    After years of reading a lot of shared information
    on this and that -when it came to finding the certain
    type of exterior sun visor- sun shade fulton verses ? ...etc. ..etc.

    I kept finding what Dead Zone had shared
    all over the world wide web and finaly made
    constact with him and -- he's the best !

    On another forum -web-site he posted pictures
    of a center cowl arm bracket and my thought
    was with your new type - one piece windshield -
    you may have to use that type of "cowl mount" bracket because
    of the peaked roof on the 31oo AD.? or ? Dead Zone could tell you
    and show you in a split second what would or would not work..
    Man knows his "stuff" !.

    With rules etc I didn't
    copy /paste the picture Dead Zone
    aka MotherTrucker posted on another
    web-site of that cowl mount bracket.....

    All said be patient - Dead Zone
    may just drop in here one day---
    Again your reaching out to the
    Man in the Know - DeadZone
    Hang in there and The Best !

    I meant Mother Trucker's given name is Joe ~ unlike many he is not afraid to let you know whom you're dealing with .

    Joe Mendola -- straight up guy
    with so much knowlege I considered
    myself " blessed" yes blessed in finally
    meeting him here on this site.
    Say it again.. it took years looking
    for MT-AZ -aka Mother Trucker -Dead Zone .....
    and actually missed the mark with a dot here
    and there in " Mother.Trucker.?...
    I read things on other web-sites
    that You Nate and Joe exchanged
    And sometimes thought you were brothers ? LOL.........
    Thank You again Nate ! for telling me to be patient .
    It paid off in chasing
    down one of those little long lost dreams. (selfish one)
    Often it's those little things in life `Amen

    "Covet earnestly ( ernest? ) the best gifts ...
    until I show you a more excellent way ( way? )"
    You can call me Ernie - LOL..
    I sure wish Joe would land here more often.
    And of course share more pictures !...
    Wishing Y'All the Best !.......
    Ernie

    "Patience is a virtue" .

    Truer words have never been spoken .

    However, learning that patience caused me no end of grief .

    I broke a lot of things as a kid and young adult .

    Thank God for the internet ! . I find unobtanium parts for obscure & worthless machines all 'round the globe .

    Going to a vintage British Bike swap meet today to look for a chain guard for a worthless Moto I own, I love it and ride the snot out of it like all classics (and beaters too) should be .

    I liked Track and Field
    during my high school years
    I was rather small compared to other athletes -
    And took up running the hills before my teens.

    Figured running Track leveled the playing field for me - LOL
    I won ribbons and a couple of medals
    and later entered an All Class- Open -Obstacle
    Endurance Race and was shocked at winning First Place - Woop woop.


    It's the only medal I have kept since then - 1966 -
    Endurance/ Obstacle 8 Mile Race..
    At my age now I do hope to finish the race strong ( limp-limp- wink )

    So many great sayings that run of of gas-- when you are faced with
    feeling empty-worn out-tired- hungry --- Faced with our human fragility

    We learn to go through
    troubles / trials not trying
    to go around -them.........

    And also comes the
    sense in going through trials ...
    There are others you know without meeting them...
    That know what "Patience is a Virtue" means..
    And so we rejoice in our hardships,
    knowing that hardship (distress,
    pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance..........

    Sometimes I think ?
    Will I become a cranky
    Bitter Angry Old Man ?--

    And then hope-faith and love
    answer - ``Say What !``
    Keep Running Ernie-- Gump --
    LOL..

    Well ;

    At least you're not yelling at clouds (yet) .

    I never cottoned to sports, my loss I think .

    Fall is here, I was sitting on the porch waiting for Demarkis' school ride and watching the sun come up, marveling at how clear the air is now, it used to be horrible here .

    Life is and remains, good .
