    I don't really care for the monotrol pedal too much. Is that an H50XL with a GM engine?

    My dad was a hair away from buying a jlg long reach fork lift 3 grand capacity brand new zero hours they let us use it for a month for free it looked like a 3 or 4 cylinder john deere turbo 4 wheel drive and 4 wheel steering. I was suprised at how many things we used it for. Just to much god damn money for the convience though.

    Just put the bqall in the fork this afternoon. Towing boat in and out of shop is a piece of cake! This was money well spent. I was going to sell the boat. May yank pump now and hang my RUDE 200 looper motor off the asss end now. Beef up transom, plug hole in bottom and cables with control. Walla, speed driven.

    Also just bought another `89 GT Mustang. Its an auto. The `89 LX 5 stick will smoke this pig. And the GT has GT40 heads and intake, 306 and a mild bumpstick. 67 throttle body. I love the lil 5 speed LX though. I`ll start waking up the GT tomorrow.
