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

Shops Garages and Barns / New GLO Shop
« on: September 28, 2018, 08:21:14 PM »
Ok, time to start a shop build thread. We are buying (under contract at moment) an L-shaped storage condo. It measures 1125 sq ft, has a service entry door and two overhead garage doors. One is 10 x 14 and the other is 12 x14. 16 foot ceilings, electric thermostat controlled heater & 125 amp panel. Should be able to start building a mezzanine in it next week. After some thinking it will be a wooden structure with solid second story floor. Here she is & I will get better pics of the rest of facility later. Facility is gated & has biometric entry, fully video secured & a club house for the old guys to BS & drink coffee. Members have restroom and shower facility on site. It has an HOA, is taxed as commercial (single downside imo) & most guys tack on a rider policy to home insurance to cover assets. Building insurance is covered via Hoa fees.

CIEMR / Raising a self thinking, head strong conservative daughter or three
« on: September 14, 2018, 05:44:26 PM »
Long ago my Dad told me something that has stuck with me thru the years. He told me "the problem with you is that you understand how the systems works too well and someday it is going to bite you in the butt." It's amazing how different each child can be in personality. My oldest Baylee takes after me and hardly disagrees with anything I say. In all she is a great kid, hard worker and determined. I couldn't ask for more out of a daughter really. Then along comes Shelby, and she is the most hard headed stubborn and demanding child on the planet. That phrase my Dad stated all those years ago seems to pop into my head weekly when I'm dealing with her. If I say left she says right and has been challenging from day one. Most days I'm pretty happy with her and then there are those other days. In all I have tried to instill a sense of independence with each of my three. Along with that a level head and someone who always questions why, granted that can be irritating sometimes to a Dad who wants it done now and that is all that needs to be stated.


So fast forward to Shelby's freshman year of high school fall of 2018. Baylee is a Junior and the high school in their further left leaning progression has enacted a few new rules. One of which has been a color coded by grade lanyard that is to be worn around the neck of each student. They have always had a student ID, so that is nothing new and it does things for them such as letting them into all home games if you buy that option for your child etc. The new part is the lanyard and having to wear it. Much to Shelby's dismay the campus supervisors mainly Mrs M (think rent a cop but not near as much responsibility and way more energetic) have daily told Shelby to wear this lanyard since school started. Shelby's response has been to say "ok" then not put it on and keep walking. She has always had this god given ability to let things roll off her shoulder, at times it even gets to the point I wonder if she has any ounce of empathy. Truth be known she has a lot and things do bother her but she would never let you know it.

Last spring after the parkland incident there was that whole nationwide school walkout. Well, the liberals in charge here thought it was great and actually promoted the idea. By doing so they kind of dug their own hole a bit. So Shelby since about the second week of school has decided she was going to wage a one man war on the lanyards. What is one to do when they are uncomfortable and do not match your outfit?

Early on her and Baylee came to me and asked for my opinion. I stated well, walk outs are the cool thing now so why not start there? You know use their stupidity against them. We discussed many aspects of the operation. The first and foremost would to be able to deny in case the school admins found out prior and wanted to take retribution. The main problem being Baylee does not have the personality to deny to the death. It's just not in her nature, I told them that if two people know then it's not a secret. Shelby took this to heart and let the discussion die, or so I thought. Early this last week she comes to me privately and had decided in order to protect her older sister that she would be doing this on her own. So knowing the camera system layout and doing her due diligence she had a plan to spread fliers. This is her flier below.



We again discussed her detailed plan and she decided to execute starting on Tuesday. Phase one was to dsitribute these in the girls bathrooms throughout the day. As of mid day she had texted me saying someone was picking up the bathrooms between classes. Her assumption was that it was Mrs M. picking up these fliers. I told her she had better quit for the day. She came home and we discussed phase two which was spreading the word via social media. She set up a privated encrypted account and proceeded to spread the word via a few pages that her fellow students visist daily.

To Shelby's dismay the whole walkout thing never really took off like she had envisioned. Then this morning I get texts from both Baylee and Shelby. "We no longer have to wear lanyards!" Apparently, Mrs M made an announcement over the school intercomm stating it was no longer going to be an enforced policy of having to wear the lanyards. Each student still needed to have their ID on them which was no different than any other year.

So this afternoon the girls come home and Baylee is a bit annoyed we did not include her. I had to explain to her that her little hard headed sister was protecting her and giving her denaibility. Shelby then gave me her theory that the threat of a walkout over these lanyards was enough to make the campus supervisors aka Mrs M back off enforcing this lanyard policy.

Needless to say Shelby all 5'4" of her is walking a little taller at the moment......

Humor, Good Stuff, and Red Neck Practices! / Selling on CL
« on: September 13, 2018, 11:08:48 PM »
So I sell excess stuff on Craigslist. For those that do not it can be quite the experience or headache depending.

As of today I listed a set of snow tires and wheel from my wife’s Lexus. Per the normal you get scammers contacting you who want to send you a certified check and then have you ship them your item via a supposed broker service etc. after you deposit their check. I’m assuming this gives them account info of your bank and allows them to withdraw money? I’m assuming here as I really never took the time to research it. Anyhow I get tired of telling them to pound sand. So now I just tell them yes said item is for sale. Then they ask for my name and address which I have posted below.

Here is my full name and address

Al Coholic
666 Seymour Buttes LN
Hell, MI. 48169

On a similiar note I have a friend who once had an unpleasant run in with a female judge during his divorce. He used to have these scammers send their check to her office.
