    The 1911 was designed in 1905, initially. Read the printing on the side of a Colt slide. End of gun story.

    Sir Ryan lives in the Texas Hill Country. I consider him an embedded Redneck just as most of the HAMBers are from Texas, including myself. I'm sure he found the slightly off-topic comments tolerable since they concerned those God-awful conversions of sweet rides that most Texans would love to own or maybe already do.

    You really should read up on the history of the 1911 pistol....there is much more to it than what can be printed on the side of it's slide. The 1905 model and the 1911 model are about as similar as a 1929 Model A and a 1932 Ford.....in H.A.M.B. Talk.

    Looks like the extra deep Buick headlight rims were designed and made to protect the glass lens.

  6. So this King Ranch is the same truck upgrade at the Ford dealer?

    Finally developing some film... I didn't take as many detail shots of the Cad as I had hoped... But here's a few:

    Yes... The "King Ranch Edition" is sort of like the "Eddie Bauer" thing that Ford used to do... It's based off of King Ranch which is an 825,000 acre plus working ranch here in Texas...

    2DF66943-A9D7-445B-8BD5-B10F421580E7.jpeg Found this this morning in a stack of old magazines, pretty good spread on the ranch cars. Thought of @Ryan when I saw the cover. If you want I can send it along with one of the guys headed to the round up?

    825,000 + ACRES and the deer and wild hogs have no place to run, oh dear me what will become of them? It's weird how uninformed opinions become statements..
