Hero, in one interview I watched with one of his friends and subsequently a future Marine who helped disarm the shooter he described him as Legend. I would agree, prayers of peace for this real man who led the charge to protect his friends and fellow students. As a result paid the ultimate price & gave his life in their defense.

An only child, there is a fund being setup in his name. My understanding is donations can be made at Wells Fargo if anyone wants to donate.

Parenting / Texas Prom 2019
« on: April 27, 2019, 08:34:01 PM »
So not sure if this is the correct place but I’m posting it here and Nate move it if you need to...

As some of you know years ago and I’m still not sure why to this day Don approached me and said you need to speak to this guy Ashley from Texas. Honestly, I rolled my eyes similar to the day Don called my shop and the wife told me I needed to stop my weekly 3.5 hour mowing job to call him back. So since then Ashley and I have become pretty good cross country friends, to the point Don thinks we’re related. In the meantime my oldest you know Baylee has become friends with Ashley’s oldest Lexi.

So fast forward to I think it was Weds night this last week. Ashley texts and he’s pretty hot under the collar. Lexi has a boyfriend who decided to dump her a week prior to prom. Add to it the fact that she goes to a small school in little Gary east Texas. Her friends all have dates and after exhausting all resources went back to the clown bf to ask if they could just go to prom as friends. Guy hadn’t even rented a tux. So Dad (Ashley) has a valid reason to be upset in my book. As it were Lexi was now not going to the big dance. You get the idea, hair and nail appointments made and dress bought.

So as we’re texting about this I said “well, Baylee has a dress or twenty.” Immediately Ashley states I wouldn’t ask her to fly down here. To which my reply was “it’s just a short plane ride.” He then does the most stand up Dad thing ever and says if she’ll come I’ll buy the ticket. So I call Baylee up and tell her what’s up, no hesitation she says “I want to go!” So we clear the program with momma and rest is history.

Baylee flew to Shreveport Friday evening and it just so happens Monday is a day off of school for Baylee. She will be back in Denver at 8:30 am. Couple poser shots for you crusty old guys....

CIEMR / I agree 110% Warning foul language and graphic
« on: April 04, 2019, 11:59:57 PM »
I don’t always agree with Karl but when I do roughly 50% of the time he’s spot on as he is currently. Unfortunate he has to use the language he does but I think we’re all adults and it fits.

CIEMR / So I needed to share
« on: April 04, 2019, 10:21:04 PM »
My wife now works with a future neighbor to the house we’re building. They just moved in last weekend. Apparently the neighbors next to them spent 50k outfitting their backyard. So it’s pretty nice for a backyard the size of a four car garage I take it. Anyhow they had bought a new traeger grill and it was on their back patio. So while the dad figure (I say that loosely and you will see why in a min) is home. A pair of undocumented humans (or what looks to be) come and take his grill off his rear deck. While he’s watching them! He tells everyone he thought about confronting them but then thought about his 1 & 3 year old in the house & was worried the thieves might be armed with a gun!  :facepalm:

Seriously? Can’t make this up.....

Then Dad goes and spends a lot more money on a better security system even though he caught these guys on camera which he handed over to the police. I told the wife, $400 will buy you a nice 870 just saying.

Powerplant, Driveline, and Braking / 68-76 Cadillac 500
« on: February 13, 2019, 06:01:26 PM »
Well, since I today purchased and drug home two of these monsters I thought I would close that other classified ad and start a build thread here. Seeing how I don't actually have the truck one of these are going into quite yet this seemed like a logical place to discuss.

So I had posted a CL ad looking for a date (what isn't that what everyone does on there as no one on CL has any money? JK) so I posted an ad wanting to buy a free spinning 500. After several days a guy named Glenn called me and said he thought he had 6 of them but non were confirmed. He has collected all of these and not sure exactly why even today. After chasing my tail some and helping several other guys confirm they had 472's and not 500's the weather turned nice and I drove to Elizabeth CO today and made a deal for these two 500's. Glen had the pan off of both and I was able to inspect the cranks which is what he did prior to my arrival not wanting to waste my time. They both were free turning and fairly clean. Glenn was a bit odd, even now I cannot figure out his pricing. He wanted $800 for the rear one and $400 for the front one. We settled on $1100 for the pair. Parts alone that I can see are useable on these would go for more than that if I wanted to part them out. Check ebay sometime and you will see what I mean.

D.O.T. / New GLO Site is up
« on: February 05, 2019, 08:48:35 AM »
As of late last night we were able to move the new site over. Still working out a few bugs, at the moment you will have to view this from a PC as it will not load on my smart phone. We still have more product to list on the GLO side yet along with some missing pictures. It seems to load super quick so excited about that and as I get things more organized we will be adding more content too, things such as a blog etc. The RM link is functional so maybe we can direct some godless GLO customers in a better direction too!

Classifieds / Wanted 68-76 Cadillac 500 engine rebuildable core
« on: February 02, 2019, 10:43:51 PM »
472’s need not apply, just what it states looking for a complete free spinning 500 from a 68-76 caddy. Closer to Denver the better but can and will pay for shipping.

Well, now in NY you can get an abortion at full term. So what's next, my guess is they will at some point allow a struggling single mom to euthanize their one month old. Evil never rests.....

Ok, so sitting in church last Sunday and Jim our pastor (KY lineage so must be good right?) started a new series on Men. Jim is a gifted speaker and great pastor. This particular series I thought was a good fit here for real man. I will be updating this post every week as a new sermon has been given. If you have a few minutes it's worth a watch.

CIEMR / Hippyland magazine
« on: January 06, 2019, 12:06:25 AM »
Ok, so since moving to boulder county several years ago I’ve gotten a liberal magazine delivered to my door every month. First time I opened it to see what it was in fact. Thumbed threw it then tossed it in recycle bin. Done that every month since in fact. So week or so ago I come across a post on fb where editor wants to write about great minority business owners this year. Normally I don’t comment on fb crap but decided I would pose a question to this intellectual superior (this is what he was essentially telling anyone who opposed him). I basically covered his question from every angle possible and left him with no choice but to not answer the question or look like the racist he in fact is. Guess which one he chose? Shortly there after this other write for them started harassing me and went back and forth with her until she gave up.

Anyhow fast forward to tonight, wife asks me to log onto LinkedIn and friend request someone we both know. So I do and see that low and behold 2 people from this very rag searched me out over the last week. I guess I must have riled them a little..... :tongue:

Just when I thought I'd have been put in every situation in business I get one coming at me from left field. At this point in my life I would think that most things wouldn't surprise me but then you have "people"...…

So the back story is I have wholesaled steel components (parts etc) for 20 years give or take. I have been in the off road market for just about as long. So last night I log onto PBB and it had been a couple weeks. I received a message from another vendor who I know. He sells disc conversion kits soley, when he started selling he sold kits built by a long time wholesale customer of mine.

GLO always sold disc brake kits, my kits and my design. Paul 15 years or so ago through a mutual friend approached me wanting to buy components. We came to an agreement (simple word of mouth) and I sold him parts and he produced kits. As time went on I started selling his kits for him as his only seller and he would package and ship. Then one day he started wholesaling his kits to another guy aka this vendor who decided to message me on PBB. It wasn't long and this seller copied all of Paul's parts or mine etc....

I'll post a couple screen shots that will explain the dialogue. However one of Paul's design that we built was a component kit to make the 76-78 caddillac rear ebrake eldorado calipers function properly. We built these for Paul as well just never sold them as to not step on his toes. The reality is the parts weren't really Paul's design as GM had built them and then quit producing them. These kits that I started selling recently individually is what has created this drama. 

His message
