    My 'new' user ID is SetiRich2. My original ID was SetiRich. The old id was registered so long ago, I don't even remember where the old address was located, even though it stated that when I tried to 're-enlist' under the old ID Anyway, I'm here again, and my '99 Contour is old enough to drink. I'm thinking of getting an F-150. Need something to haul around a bigger boat than the Contour or my wife's Escape can handle, and the 150 should do the trick.

    When I got this car I was working for Ford (as they say around here, 'down at Fords') in the small & medium vehicle engineering area. I had even sent the successor to my units program, the CDW132 to Germany for the rest of its engineering. That vehicle was the Mondeo. I forget what year that hit the market, but as you all know, the Conty's ended here in North America with the 2000 model year.

    You'll find a few old posts from me about stuff I did with this car, including rebuilding the vehicle 'computer', which in those days, consisted of a bunch of plastic plates with some trace conductor on them. FYI, this damn repair is still functioning just fine, so don't hesitate to do the deed on yours if it fails.

    Will describe more stuff as we move forward through time, even if most ot the stuff really doesn't matter any more.

    Since I'm required to make 2 intro posts, I'll tell you about an adventure with the newly introduced Focus, after the 132 went over to England & Germany. The first Focus bodies had just came over from Europe, and the sales models were not even at any dealers yet. Short story is that we cut one up, and used the cut-up to develop a totally new vehicle line. Can any of you guess what that vehicle was?

    This old stuff is lots of fun...for an oldster like me!
