    I see a new topper on the ram! color coordinated of course. Looks great. I say bring the 300, and spirit of the NYB. LOL. then again if you find anything you need at the swap meet, the truck may come in handy.

    Not very much room in the trunk of the 300.

    Well, the journey continues.

    The engine is ready to be crated and shipped tomorrow. I'll get a call tomorrow with the specs and shipping details. I should have it by the end of the week or beginning of next week.

    I'm going to try to "dodge" the raindrops in the next day or so and get one more ride with the old engine.

    The plan is to sell it.

    Big block Dodge asked about it first.

    You would be next if Dave doesn't want it.

    It has about 61, 000 miles on it.

    What a pain in the ass UPS is starting to be!

    I'm paying big money to ship the engine and I found out today that they will only drop the engine curbside. How the F am I suppose to get it up a 1200 foot driveway that goes uphill to the garage.

    Also....the engine is still in Richmond and I won't know until tomorrow if it'll be at their distribution warehouse in Elkton so I can pick it up in a borrowed truck.

    Just ranting I guess!!!

    UPS ships engines? Throw the guy a 20 and have him back the truck up the driveway and unload it closer to the garage.

    I'd call that a "whoops" on the builder's deal. They should always specify what that means to the recipient.

    Not UPS. UPS Freight. Two separate companies. UPS Freight is tailgate delivery. Pray his trailer has a power tailgate.

    Bob, have them hold it at their terminal and do a Will Call.
    I've done it many times.
