Tell me which UNMUSTANG God went on a wild project/honeydo list rampage:: . To have my painting funds depleted for a fancy white fence in the front yard. :( :chainsaw:

Darn neighbors across the steet. :pissed:Just moved in and put up this very nice white fence. :naive: Now the SWMBO wants to keep up with the JONES. :sick:

I hear that sucking sound coming from my hiding spot. :sick:

Troy :(

If you talking about the white PVC fencing system it's great stuff. Never have to paint it, just pressure wash it ever couple of years. I have about a 900' of it in my front yard. You can see some of it in my sig pic. I think it was about $10.00 a foot. It's been in for about ten years. Good luck in keeping up with the Jones.

Time to put the ol foot down! Point out there is no real benefit from a fence unless you need it to keep pets / animals in / out. Also point out the neighbors will realise you are trying to keep up... and the fence will be a "copy" of theirs. You need to set the standard and let them try to keep up with you, and your cherry painted Stang! :biggrin: That will look way better in the front of the house, and can actually be used and enjoyed! :highfive:

OK, Troy, maybe you can have a little "fun" with the "Jone's"? Since SWMBO has made up her mind to use your savings for a fence, why not make it 6' tall and get a couple of Draft Horses in the yard? Not only do they EAT a small fortune every day, but dressing them up in "Smuckers" harnesses will run $14000+ and a cool wagon for them to pull will be another $20000! That will give the "Jone's" something to think about :: It may also keep SWMBO off your back to compete with the neighbors :eek:

Ah yes, custom built wagons to be pulled by a team of Draft's from Justin Carriage will run up (and past) to $20K, but if you ever see the detail and craftsmanship involved I'm sure that you will understand why. As for "1 HP"...I wish we could measure a nice Shire's torque :lol: At last years Draft show in at the evergreen state fair, a team of them pulled a sled loaded with 7250 pounds of metal/sand 100 feet! No wheels involved ::

As for some cool horse drawn carriage (and a great website) check out www.buggy.com

Wow...they have some awesome quality work into some of those wagons! I knew they were going to be spendy when the elevator music kicked in. :lol:
I'll bet a horse actually has better Torque to HP ratio then ANYTHING man can and will ever build. :shocked2:...but of course...I will leave this to the experts to prove.

Your car looks strait in the photo and the paint looks ok. How bad is it. Does it need any bodywork??? Maybe we could work out a trade???
