    BTW, the only real hooptie still in my fleet is the van. I didn't include one son's 93 caddie or the other's 98 Buick even though dear ole' dad usually gets stuck paying the repair bills.

    @oldfarmer50 said: Yea! Thanks Stick. jmonroe, try what he posted. If a lummox like me can do it anyone can.

    Thanks 'stick'. I tried it too and it works now.

    I was thinking about doing it the way you suggested but figured that was stupid because I had already put that info in the box on the profile page where it asked for what cars you own. I should have known to try it since everything else in this new format seems stupid to me. :@

    I hope like hell that I don't start thinking like the guy that set up this site does...I'll never make it out of the parking lot at work without someone looking for me. :'(

    I can fix this. Now need to figure out setting up my new iPhone. Old one decided today to fry itself. So off to Genius Bar to get new one under warranty. Managed to get re synced and stuff back. All but iMessage. Hopefully that is just a timing issue. Because I don't want to go back!

    @oldfarmer50 At Verizon you can get an iphone 4 for 99 cents if you sign up for 2 years. My wife and kids are on at least their 3rd generation of iphone and never had a problem. Of course, they always got the newest version. I gave up my 10+ year old phone. I hoping with the Fusion, the rear trunk gasket can be repositioned or replaced. The water is definitely coming through it. I can see the dried soap from the car wash on it.

    DON'T YOU JUST LOVE LIMMERICKS?

    I once new a man from Decatur
    Who loved to cook meals for a caterer
    When delivering meals
    He drove his hot wheels
    Through the aisles of his Bijou theater!

    I knew a bright man with illusions
    Who drove nothing but fashionable Fusions
    Until one November
    An FBI member
    Arrested him for fraudulent collusions!

    I remember my grandfather Sammy
    Who ran over this guy In Miami
    He hemmed and he hawed
    When arrested for fraud
    For driving his sister-in-law's Camry!

    My Dad, who drove nothing but Pontiacs
    Honked horns at those Florida maniacs
    They speeded on highways
    Double-parked and blocked driveways
    And hated insufferable insomniacs!

    LAST ONE.....

    Remember that man from Orlando
    Who served as a spy and commando
    Til one day at sea
    He was stung by a bee
    And was buried in his old Ford Ranchero!

    I hope you all enjoyed these creations with a mention of cars in each.

    Maybe we should threaten them to either like our artistic ventures or we'll sing to them!

    Sorry all of you are just getting words describing your ride to appear.

    I am going to get my ride to appear.

    Bought an ebook for my new tablet today. I started reading it, but the next challenge is to see if I can find it again. Going to call the car dealer tomorrow about the water in the trunk of the Fusion, just to let them know about it. I'm going to keep my eye on it and bring it in, if I notice it again.

    It means that instead of stating what my ride is in my signature I put picture of it there. B)

    Use to love them as a kid when we'd be on family outings in the country.

    One I still remember and recite to my kids on the school bus.

    "Don't stick you arm

    Out the window too far...

    It might go home

    Cool........but are you going to sign that way after every post? You'll use up too much internet space!

    Those are very popular cars in Florida...I see lots of them. I don't see lots of convertibles in Florida, but those are quite common. I see quite a few Caddies and Lincolns with phony convertible roofs. My wife pointed out a Caddie and she said that car is a convertible. I said, no it isn't, it has 4 doors on it.......it's a phony convertible.

    It's called "Verse by the Side of the Road," and I have a copy. I think it's still available from the usual sources. Our family very much enjoyed reading the Burma Shave signs on the long otherwise empty stretches of highway in New Mexico.

    IIRC, it tells how they planned and went around posting the signs.

    Poison is intended to "kill"! My limericks are intended to entertain. So based upon your response, it would seem that you look upon my limericks as a mere "death penalty"! Good grief, I didn't think they were that bad - but knowing you are "NEVER" wrong, jmonroe, I'll take your word for it!

    imidazol, that picture of the Bonneville or Catalina (can't tell which from the picture) sure is "LARGE"! Are you considering posting a "lifesize" image of that car in the near future? If so, it should take up several pages of space on the forum.
