Some classes?  Lots of classes - and more and more every year. . . Iowa demanding as much or more CLE in ethics as any other state.  So yes - that previous post was all - sarcasim!

Thats me just playing on the stereotypes we lawyers deal with every day. . .

Being an Attorney used to command respect - people would wish for their kids to grow up and become Doctors or lawyers . . . that is all different.  Most people view lawyers as bottom dwelling scum that charge to much.   Until they need one of course. . . . kinda like cops, everybody hates them till they need one, then they are the second comming.

Its a shame that a few lawyers ruined the profession for the rest of us. . . 
Yeah, I just had one take me for 3,468.00 and then request to withdrawl as my lawyer. Told me I had the case no problem and he would do the research before we went any further. Then 2 months later says, "Hey I just had my new assistant research the case and it looks like you don't have much of a defense." "It's a 50/50 chance." What a prick, damn western union money order scam! 4years now I've had to deal with 5Th 3rd delaying everthing and not being able to get a debit card or checking account. Bastards, It's always shit on the little people. I got ripped off not only by the scam, but also by the bank!

Always seems to be the way.  I had a guy message me on a diff forum about an intake I had for sale.  Wanted to send me a cheque, and get me to cash it.  $5000.00 and keep 300 for my trouble and send hime the remanider in a money order along with the intake.  Can you say scam??  I forwarded his e-mail adress to the authorities. And went no further.  Would have been out $5000.00 plus the intake and shipping.

Yep, that's the one. Only it happened to me on ebay when I was trying to start up my business.
I lost more money to my lawyer then I did in the scam! Only difference is that the bank cleared the check after holding it 10 days. EFT only takes 3 days to find out if a check is good or not. That and I requested a notice of withholding from the bank till the M.O. cleared. I even went in the bank and asked the manager to verify it was good before I withdrew the money from my account. They told me 10 days was more then enough to know if it's good or not. Then they waited 2 years before they even contacted me for a hearing date. Which has finally been set for this Dec. Talk about fucking over the small person. All I was tring to do was start my own business, you can't go around not trusting anyone or you'll have no customers. Always someone out there to have to fuck it all up for people. This time it was someone from Nigeria, South America

you wiped out an exhaust lobe on the camshaft.
cut open the oil filter you should see raining metal in the engine.

lubricant quality today is not sufficient for 80s engines minimum requierment is SG rated oils

I think a 351/400M is worth the effort for a street/strip engine
get the 400 and you only need a custom set of pistons.
Add some CHI/TFS heads and away we go!

Someone my dad knows has a old farm pickup with a 400m in it, said $500 and its mine.
I doubt it would be worth it though.
what does it take to make 400hp with it?

HotRod mag did a 385ish HP build a few years ago,  A set of 4V CC heads and the
right cam/pistons/tidy build should be in the neighborhood..
