    Yep. I ended up climbing a tree so I didn't get gored cuz I didn't have my gun with me. Dave layed down in that hog tunnel and took the shot before we got attacked. We were both out of breath and our lungs were burning from all the running we had to do. I will never forget that for as long as I...

    Here's a photo of a wild hog hunt I took Dave and Dan on in Central California near King City. Dave got a monster of a hog with his H&K SR9T in .308 Winchester. There's a great story behind getting this hog and maybe I'll type it up when I get back on my laptop Monday.

    Fast forward to the end and here's a TV commercial I did with Dave Ashley back in the mid 90's. The video before that was a crash recovery I did for the Venable family. 😕

    Dave was real tired of the double standard at SCORE. He even had a nickname for Sal and called him Cheato. He got real burned out over that stuff...

    And now most will understand why Dave Ashley and Dan Smith quit the sport all together.

    On the reverse gear it's not the tooth width as much as it's the short internal splines that drive it.

    Found one in my pile of Herbst stuff.... The reverse gear was only 5/8" wide and the main drive gears were 1 1/4" wide. Big difference. ;)

    That statement kinda made me laugh. When we built the Herbst Sequential shift 6 speeds many years ago the reverse gear was this little tiny wimpy gear that was only designed for backing out off the trailer. You could never use it to pull someone out with a tow strap or back out of a silt bed. 😄...

    Starting at the 0:42 mark you can see "Sr. Abraham Lara" not wearing his seat belt so he would have got to meet Jesus if they connected.

    PISTOL PETES WRECKED tt spec (crashed by dead beats who wont pay)

    I don't understand why someone selling a TT wouldn't put it through an escrow. Generate the contract, buyer places money into escrow, buyer test drives truck and if he wads it up escrow pays the seller according to the agreed upon contract and buyer trailers his wrecked POS home with him. Escrow...

    Time to revive an old thread. Introducing "Penny" as in aka "Penny Lane". The wife and I flew to San Luis Obispo today and picked her up and brought her home. Her big sister "Abby Road" is over the moon to have a friend once again and the planets have aligned. I'm still kicking myself for why I...
