      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

A Poll For You Car Buffs On FM?

Recommended Posts

Since spring is upon use once again, the custom cars are starting to pull out of the garage and soon car shows will be going in full swing.

I thought for fun, I would see what what type of car guys/gals we have on FM.

You do not have to own a car to submit a vote. This is to get an idea of what FM'ers like to see or have fond memories from the past!

Go ahead and submit a vote smile

I chose a 60s muscle car up to and including 1972. 1973 they came out with the impact bumpers and lower compression. I didn't care for those. frown

I bet Jer would choose a tricked out 89 Corolla with 20 inch rims, and a spit manifold exhaust.

No pre '80s import option? You're missing all the neat british and european sportscars!

Just lump them in to the "70’s Restored to Original Factory (Non-Muscle)" wink

60s Mopar, Camaros and Mustangs are way too common.

Blaspheme!

426 Hemi's, 427's, and cobra jets are NEVER common enough.

Im not sure what category I belong in? I put it in 90's domestic/tuner. I got a 95 Eagle Talon TSi AWD which is a American name, Japanesse engine/chassis, and it was made in Illinois (I got a cousin that worked at the plant).

My Chevy was made in Winnipeg. My Dodge was made in mexico. My Toyota was made in Tennesee.... confused Really?

Anyway, if I had a second vote it would be 70's monster sized muscle. Im thinking a 77 Monte Carlo with a 502 stuffed in it would be just ugly enough to make me happy. grin For some reason a car that size needs to do the 1/4 mile in about 11 seconds or so just because it shouldn't. grin

Go to a car show, and count them. How many 49-50 Mercs do you see?? A fraction (if any) of Camaros, Chargers, Mustangs, etc.

Any Jeep CJ (no yj's, aka wranglers, allowed) restored to original. No lift kits,fiberglass tubs, or over sized tires either.

I had a 75 Monte. it was a great car. rusty as all heck, but with a few tweaks it went pretty good. they actually dont weigh anything more then the 70-72 Montes.

gunmunky, this is the "A Poll For You Car Buffs On FM?". I was planning on doing a truck one, but ran out of time that day! Maybe this week some time.

As for the cut off at 70, I can understand what you guys mean. There where some cars like the Charger and Mustang that did not change much into 70, but after 71 it seemed every thing changed. Then you have the introduction of the E-Body in 1970 (Challengers and Cuda's(not the Barracuda)).

You did have a couple models that still looked like 60's Muscle (hence I still made a "70's muscle" option, but de-tuning started right after 70 for emissions reasons and IMO 67-69 muscle maybe should have been in a poll option of it own. Just have to draw the line some where's I guess grin

^I hear ya with the 67-69 idea. That was pretty much the cream of the crop. I love the firebirds in those years. Its just gotten to a point where you got to be a millionaire to afford one now. The cars in the 50's are great because they had so much personality. The big lines and all the chrome. But again, they are so expensive to own now. I like the 70's cars cause they are big miserable smog monsters and nobody wants them so they are cheap. Just insert big block and go...

Sorry shackbash. I didn't realize you were so sensitive. I'm not trying to ruin your survey. These are the vehicles that I have fond memories of. A Jeep CJ was/is the best vehicle a teenager could ever have (in my opinion).

Not sensitive all. smile. I see I put a "!" in my second sentence. Sorry Gm.

I am going to do a truck one, but I am sure it will have many more options than this poll, which will take some time.

I agree Mercs aren't as numerous. That just makes them that much cooler though.

    •   So what about when you have a rattle wheel down and go outside to get a fish on your tip up?   Same thing as a wiz or smoke?  You can’t see it and might be gone for 10 minutes.   I only ask to be argumentative. 
    •  I never disliked my original ion but once I tried the new drill with the centering point I ordered the drill immediately. 
    • Just my 2 cents....   I bought an ion when I built the wheel house to keep the smoke plume out of the living quarters. I have had nothing but good luck with the system. It has always drilled all the holes that I need both inside the house and out hole hoping. You do need to keep the battery warm, but that is Li-Ion for you.   BUT.... my dad has a severe issue with the Dewalt salesman at his shop. He has pretty much every yellow tool that you can own and was wanting to try a drill setup. I thought it was silly to have both a K-drill and ION in our arsenal givien that both of us also have gas augers, so I decided to pick up an IceMaster adapter just to see what the electric drill craze is all about. I pulled my ION bit off and put it on Dad's brushless 20v high-end Dewalt and was very impressed. It really cuts nice with that ION bit, very smooth with no jerking. I have a hard time believing that the K-drill would be any better, but I have not compared the two side by side. For kicks, I decided to try the drill and adapater on my Strikemaster Mora..... YIKES! It wouldn't take you long to burn up ANY brand drill with that Mora.   To compare the two setups... the ION is definitely nicer for reopening old holes or widening holes that have narrowed over night. This is mainly due to the width of the handles versus the amount of torque that it takes to reopen holes. On the other hand, the drill is better at getting new holes perfectly centered on rough ice due to the fact that you can start a hole slowly with the variable speed of the drill vs the "on or off" capability of the ION head.Out on the ice, I think that drill head vs ION head performed the same.... Yes, the drill is a bit lighter, but the ION will do more holes (3 AH ION @ 40v / 5 AH Dewalt @ 20v).   SO.... now what are we going to do? I was able to find someone close to me that was upgrading their legacy ION bit for the new ION-X (primarily for the centering point). I was able to pick up the bit for $45. Now we have both a complete ION  and drill setup, and only have $70 invested into the drill setup since my dad already owned the drill itself.    Sorry for the long post, but I have a feeling that there are going to be many others upgrading their ION bits and selling their old legacy bits, and from what I have tested it really seems to work well on drills, especially for someone that already owns a drill and is on a budget.      
    • First possum I've ever seen in my yard..
    • LOL I just got checked yesterday and asked him this same question. I asked if i had pagers on each line could I keep them down. He said as the law is written a Rod or rattle wheel is considered a line down and you must be able to visually see the line at all times. Different from a tipup where you must be within the vicinity but you don't need a constant visual on them.   So I'm thinking I may just set up my tip-ups inside my shack with beepers when I'm not in there
    • The CO that checked us on LOW this winter told us if you go out to the bathroom or a smoke it is OK, if you go next door to visit it is a ticket...
    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
