Today's article asks, "How many speakers does one really need?"

If the above doesn't work, click here.

You know what they say about a man that has large speakers...?

That hard to understand line from "Love Shack"....it's "Your what? Tin roof, rusted!"

I've misunderstood that for years!

If I'm honest, I have no idea. I've puzzled over that one every time I've heard the song. It wasn't until you mentioned it in your blog that made me look up the lyrics to the song to finally answer that question.

One of life's mysteries (in my mind) has been solved.

I must admit that no matter how many times I listen to the song and look at that line, I'm not really convinced...

You guys would so love my 27 yr. old neighbor's Mustang GT. The engine's bored out for more HP. The only thing I don't like is it sounds somewhere between a top-class monster truck and jet copter are revving up next door. It's truly a man's car.

Julie -

As much as I love classic cars, I prefer them as they came from the factory. I've had a couple of mid 60's V8 Mustangs and Cougars - while they may have been all original cars, a mild burble from the tailpipe has always been more rewarding to my ears rather than a raucus rumble that rattles windows. I've always been a man of moderation - IMHO, "less is more".

But, that's just me.

I had a GT Mustang before my present truck (Ford F-150). I love them both. The F-150 is heavy enough to pull my boat and trailer. The GT was enough to remind me every morning that I am a guy. A suped up model would be even better. I'll probably get another GT again before too long.

I've been considering getting an old 1930s-1940s Ford and fixing it up. Old classic cars have appealed to me more and more over the past couple of years. I'd probably have a few shoved away in various states of repair if that honor wasn't already taken up by boats.

I guess I'm a bit of a machine whore.

All my best,


Russell

Russell -

I'm a bit of a freak when it comes to things with wheels. I've always been a person with just one car, but I found another that I just had to have. As it happens, it's a 1984 Mustang GT, but it's the 2.3 Turbo version instead of the 5.0 V-8. Here's a pic of my current project car (ignore the hideous wing on the back):



I never thought that I would buy an older car again - I haven't done since 1995, but this one called out to me. It's kind of odd having 2 cars for just one person, much less both of them being convertibles (that's my 06 Miata in the background).

I'm a big Ford fan - this is the 6th (and the newest) Mustang I've had.

Later mate,
Bryan

I take it, one of the projects will have something to do with removal of that "hideous wing?" That car looks great for 1984, sans the unfortunate aftermarket add-on (have to agree with you about it!)

I like cars as they were supposed to be, not the hot-rod versions (though to each his or her own). I can still tell '55-'57 Chevys apart thanks to my car-obsessed dad. My favorites: Auburn boatails, Duesenbergs, '55-57 corvettes, and mid-50's Metropolitans (the car that Lois Lane drove in the '50s Superman TV show).

It might be a good time to buy a 1930's Ford, Russell. I've heard some prices that were relatively low for even Model A's on some of the shows on history channel. At one time my dad wanted a Model A, but at that time they were worth more than he'd paid for our house 10 years before. He found a '53 Ford Crestline Victoria, 2dr. hardtop and worked on redoing it instead. His first car had been that model.

Good luck finding a model you like.

When dad was working on his there was a magazine called Hemmings Motor News that carried ads for all sorts of New Old Stock parts. that's probably on the internet if it still exists, I'm sure there's a better spoiler for the Mustang out there some where if you want one, Bryan! They used to have stuff for even '30s cars in the early '80s.

Jewels,

I've been wanting to get an old 1930s Ford for about ten years now. I was about to pull the trigger on one a while back but my 1st wife left me right about then and I decided to drink a lot and hate the Universe instead.

Now I'm back to wanting the car.

All my best,


Russell

I'd probably ditch the rear spoiler too. (I Happen to build muscle cars, classic rods and do some drag racing as my other hobby).
But fan or otherwise of rear spoilers here are a couple for your viewing pleasure.

Sweet! You've done work on the paint and decals haven't you? I don't remember it looking that good when you bought it.

Hemmings does still exist, at least on the web:
http://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/.../ford/model_a/

Are you looking for a Model A or one of the later '30s models, Russell?
(I sort of remember the '38 being somewhat desirable styling, though it might have been the one that was most made into a street rod.

Sorry for the lack of response, I love your articles. They are so complete that I usually have no worthy response, I just say to myself "wow, he really gets it". This last one made me think for a while about my own POV regarding the Star Wars story.

Please dont stop.
