    Nice looking car. Back in the 90s when I met my 2nd wife I bought her a 1986-7 Buick Regal (Presidential model with the canvas top & side lights that came on when lights were on) it had a Buick 307 in it. I had put air shocks on back. Raised it as pictured. Glass pack exhaust that sounded sweet. New chrome wheels. Tad wider tires on rear. Sold it off for a new vehicle. Wish I still had it.... Not pictured was my 1984 Firebird. The Dodge in picture I dropped a 318 in it with a automatic tranny & new wheels n tires. Clean Cali truck. I enjoyed muscle cars growing up in the 70's

    This is a F150 I had in the mid 80s. I put bucket seats in it & console with standard shift on floor (granny low geared) 300 6 banger. Had a paint job done by friend with a tiger ripping out of side of truck. Added some chrome wheels n new tires & new stereo system that rocked. Then I sold it to my brother & took this picture & came across this picture years later. If it wasn't for the dygmhbctohv5.png
    6 banger I wouldn't have sold it

    I bet you were a whiz on Radio Shack's "Deskmate" software !
    🤗

    ....which, come to think of it, was actually pretty decent !

    Yep, load that baby with Lotus 1-2-3 (or its mirror version "The Twin" for $49) and maybe AshtonTate's dBase or better yet their Framework software and you'd be the cat's pajamas !
    Framework.....oh, that had such potential. 👍

    ^^^ why, that almost looks little windows looking at programs, right on the monitor screen!
    What an amazing idea! Too bad that didn't catch on...

    Man, that brings back memories of doing code for the game "Pong" on the ol' Timex computer.

    Exactly.

    You could be writing a document, insert a window inside the document tied to a data base , keep writing and the data would update automatically on the screen as it changed.

    It was awesome. 👍

    Another interesting software package was Q&A Write by Symantec.
    It was a document writer that allowed you to make queries using common English (after setting up a database of sorts).

    Put the Apple IIE's word processor to shame. 🤗
