2 days before we're "eclipsed", and the Light will dim across the land. As big a deal as Haley's comet and then some :o

Your only as smart as your last epiphany, but if you can see the Light, your world will never dim ;)

I have over 100 Nascar tee shirts in my shop in NW Arkansas for sale. I could not give them away for free. Could not sell them at $1.00 each.

Pintosopher, you are exactly right. The cost at the track is too much. Good to enjoy once in a while but not on a regular basis.

Why would any couch potato want to pay too much for tickets, Buy overpriced food, and wait to use the Facilities when nature calls? It's so much more convenient to just order in and fire up the Digital broadband, and you can pause to use the Bathroom in your own house. Smellovision coming soon to en

I think the cruddy racing at the Brickyard and the novelty of racing there has worn off more than NASCAR being in trouble. Not saying it's not, just saying it's not a good race to see in person at that facility

Has anyone or is it even possible to take out the rag joint and just use a shaft and U Joints?

You only need one u joint, at least on a 79/80 Pinto. Bought mine off of E-gay for less than a rag joint. Mine is only bolted on the dash end and slip joint in the splines. No cutting or welding necessary and NO I don't have part number. It can't ever come out as its bottomed out on both ends. Easy fix with the right u joint.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.

Is it possible to take a picture of your setup?

Cant get to mine for a picture. What you want is one with a 9/16" x 26 splines X 3/4" Double D and in stainless steel {no rust}, They run about $35.00. Look under "steering u-joints" on E-gay.

Do a search for 9/16" x 3/4" double D steering u joints.  Price has gone up on the one I have ($73.00) but its will worth it as no welding or machine work is necessary at all. Just bolt on.

Thanks Jdm071755 for posting this https://www.ebay.com/itm/192085350465 U-joint. If Dick gives it the thumbs up, it'll work for me. I checked out the listing and the price was so good I bought one. Farewell 42 year old rag joint.
