    And they are unlikely to fit in the DOG HOUSE with him!
    Now wait a minute here, Rich; let's not get the forum membership a little ahead of itself! BP

    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

      I thought Ole Evinrude designed them. And I wouldn't disparage the early Evinrudes. Later known as ELTOs (Evinrude Light Twin Outboard ) and in 4-60 and X-60 form, they powered many top midget race cars, won lots of races and championships. A running late 1930s ELTO 4-cyl is worth a lot of money. A 1939 Mercury? Not so much.

      ELTO is long gone, of course. Mercury? Everything up to 60HP is made in Japan or China.

      ELTO went down in a blaze of glory. Mercury? Just more Chinese junk.
