    Wow, either that is a really old picture, or there's a very old green washing machine (to the right) still running in the world.

    If you look at the word WIN in the sentence I typed above - it's BLUE. It's also clickable. It will take you to a discussion forum for vintage washing machines as well as other appliances.

    You guys think you have and OCD hobby....

    Here's link to their pictures collection.

    The first guy on the list has a nice little collection. He even has the old washing powder boxes.

    But the one from Mike from Chester UK looks like a converted ice maker.

    He does have some interesting stuff. When you look at the washing machine's from the past - can't help but to think no matter what you have today - you've got it made!

    I can tell after reading your write-up - you are WAY MORE OCD than me.


    Ha ha ha ha

    I put a book on the shelf just to take it back off and make sure the pages weren't wrinkled and then repeat again.

    It's just the way the Army made me. I think it drives people crazy sometimes. It works for detailing though.

    If you have any car buddies in Oklahoma don't forget to tell em about me.

    So true, so true.

    I think back 31 years ago when I started at Ford, almost everything was done by hand, very few robots. My little 136# body would wrestled weld/rivet guns that weighed more then I did and the old guys would tell me how I had it made.

    So in the long run do you think it has hurt us or helped us. There will never be another "Great Generation".

    Do you mean,


    Do I think advancements in technology have hurt us or helped us?


    For sure - helped us.

    It's still up to each individual to take responsibility for themselves and also apply themselves to whatever they end up gravitating towards for a profession. Advancements in technology naturally take a lot of the grunt labor out of work, but that's still a blessing. I would much rather drive a Tractor to plow a field than to hook up some Horses to a plow and then control the reins as I manage them to plow the field. And I certainly wouldn't want to do it with a pick and shovel.

    I have ran rototillers - mostly crappy ones for home gardens for YEARS growing up - talk about a workout. These things will yank you around 9 ways to Sunday.

    That is probably both sad and true. Time will tell.

    I totally agree with you on that end, but I wonder about technology and our kids. How many times have you gone somewhere and the cash register is down and they have to mentally count out your change? To many have the deer in the headlights look then.

    We both agree it has helped our life's, but it has hurt it also. After watching your video where you hand compound a section of the hood and then used the Porter Cable, it has helped a LOT. I'm not sure who was more winded after watching you rub that section by hand, you or me. If you did the whole hood I think one of us might of had a coronary attack.

    Mike if you don't mind, I'm just curious to how old you are.

    Thanks, Greg

    You have me by a year. Be 59 in December. I figured with some of the things you type or say in your videos we were close.

    No need to dig that hole yet, we still have plenty of time left. It's just that we have peaked the hill.
