    Got my ranger up to 80 now!!

    Bought A Marts turbo lower unit, some of them there $8000 batteries that weigh half oz., and squirted some of Ike's jizzum juice on the bottom of hull, now you can't even see my ranger go by its so fast. Purt near passed the school bus in it this morning.

    A friend of mine wanted to get his that fast but since he had just bought his new F150 TurboBust, he couldn't afford to trade for a Silverado right away.

    My Ranger does 80 with no problem. Just did the tune-up, tightened the steering and put 2 new tires on the rear. It's not fast, after all, it is a Ranger, but 80 should be not much trouble on the freeway with light traffic.

    He had to wait on the Silverado to get out of the shop!

    If you are not satisfied with the color or texture of your custom made Doc Irv baits just let me know and I will redo it at no cost to you to your satisfaction, because I am not happy unless you are happy.*

    I wondered when someone was going to make that connection.
