Re: Ural in a Pick-up

That's NJ Ken and his pickup setup...from about 10 years ago!

Re: Whud I miss? Besides a bunch of spammers...

Well, WEGUNTER retired, TomCatFixer retired and moved to the sticks, the CRAP Rally was a big success. Donald Trump was elected President of the USA, ISIS was defeated, Notre Dame burned up. The Cold War ended.

How far back do you need updates?
