  Sounds a lot like what I used to see on 
 rec.autos.makers.vw.watercooled on usenet.  There were a couple 
of us that would work on putting out the flame wars, a couple that 
liked to start them.  Lots of Honda trolls there and the usual oil 
wars.  I'm not a bit surprised to hear that any site with a lot of 
gung ho biodiesel people has a lot of opinion based ego building/
thrashing going on.  The cheapskates (us) are a lot different 
crowd than the ones that are going to "save the planet" by using 
it.  ;-)

  You have several times Hayden!  :-)  Helping and comradare is 
probably why most of us are here.

  I'll have to check on your '68 project.  I have a bottom end built 
for a '67 myself.  Someday, way behind most of the other projects...

Hurry! April 15th is almost here. File your Federal 
taxes FREE with TaxACT.
