Man, that RD has a lot to answer for.

Hearses make the ideal pin hauler.

My one fits 2x WPC/Stern end to end down the middle, no problems. The “tray” is 10ft long.

To get any more in there, you need to start dismantling.

I had 3 in there for the whole Route66 trip, plus 3 people, plus luggage, plus $1200 of pin parts under the floor.

A fireball went in in LA, but the head had to go on the front seat. Start walking Fiona and Danni!

Love the color - my dad bought a 1970 F150 Ford pickup in that same color. Always liked that...

#1105 2 years ago

Well, I've always admired the Z's since I was in high school in the mid-80's, and at the time the Datsun 280Z was my dream car. I got the bug early last year, and finally pulled the trigger on a new 370Z Sport Tech in Chicane Yellow. I've had the car for about 10 months and have done several things to make it my own (all sorts of wheel, badging, tail light and other blackouts, replaced muffler with non-resonating sales, added cold air intake, full leather interior, and a few other personalized items).

Can't tell you how much fun this car is to drive, and everything I hoped it would be.

Quoted from MustangPaul:

The rear tires are 295 x 50 x 15s on 10 inch original American CP 200s.

I had to jack up my '69 SS396 L78 Chevelle (stolen in 1975) to fit Mickey Thompson N50x15s on 10 inch wide chrome Cragar S/S wheels back then. It's easier now with modern muscle. My ZL1 Camaro came with 305/35ZR20 Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar rear tires on 11" wide forged aluminum wheels (and 285/35ZR20 fronts on 10" rims) that fit neatly in the factory wheel wells. 2013 ZL1 Camaro (resized).jpg

Don't know what it is about staggered wheels that look so awesome to me, but every sports/muscle car needs them! Plus comes with the bonus that you don't ever have to rotate them. Sure, it probably costs more in the long run, but time savings and headache is worth it!

Yeah the car makers learned a thing or two since 1970.

Yeah, it's been in the shop for the past 14 years, MAJOR resto on it and costing me a small fortune, you name it it's been replaced or repaired....except the engine, tranny, rear end, dash, steering collum, side and rear glass and wheels and a few other pieces. I should get it back this spring then the clean-up begins, the engine and engine compartment are messy dirty. I was thinking (if anyone does it in my area) getting that ceramic coating put on the paint, the demos look GREAT.

Well it was like summer here today (45 deg) compared to 0, so decided to start the car up and let it run for a bit.

Yup.....but they get 30 miles a gallon....so the money you save on gas you can afford a $500 water pump and $800 headlights when they go bad.

How many different spellings of Bullitt did you go though before you found one that wasn’t already taken? I tried every combo for 66 mustang or pony etc trying to find one not already taken but no dice. Of course California has such a huge population damn near every plate is already taken.

There are like a thousand videos of just exhaust and engine sounds.

I'm not a huge car guy, but have been looking for something to drive during the summer (my main vehicle is an F150). Any thoughts or suggestions on what I should look for? This just popped up on my FB

#1141 2 years ago

C3 vette's of the later 70's into early 80's aren't so desirable. I've helped a friend bring his 69 back to life over the past 10 years and would first recommend that you make sure you like the car and driving it. The seats hurt the value but not sure what it would cost to replace with originals. Just make sure you really, really like the car and that it has everything done. Things really add up on them. Just looks kinda hacked for a vette to me which would steer me away of what other hoaky work was done. Not a vette enthusiast's car IMHO.

#1142 2 years ago

The interiors of Cadillacs and vettes of that era do not hold up well. I bet the leather on the original seats were cracked all to pieces. Fitting those Vette door keys when lost are a pain in the ass but the telescoping steering columns are great. I can fit switch keys in 5 minutes.

Nothing like those old GM Sidebar lock cylinders, eh? Except for the glove compartment lock of course.

Those steering columns were fun to dissassemble as long as you have a harmonic balance puller and that U-shaped compressor to remove the locking cam circlip. Then remove the lock, read the code number from the case, look in the HPC code book and cut a new key. I used the older Curtis Clipper with the wheel myself.

#1144 2 years ago

I always hated fitting Fiero door locks unless it had the rear hatch release. GM said remove the outer door skin instead of the interior panel. The battery is in the engine compartment and if it dead the release won't work. Here's a tip I figured out. Take jumper cables from your truck and hook the negative to the brake pedal arm and a probe from the positive to the fuse for the release and push the button. Save you an hour and a lot of cussing.

Guys from work say how do you remember all that shit and I say because I literally did thousands of them. We did all the dealership repo's for $35 each. Great when you got a Honda (every lock has a code) or a Nissan with the code in the glove box. Sucked when you got a Saab or a Renault. Guess it all averaged out. I have fit keys for some REALLY nice cars over the last 35 years.

Quoted from Parzival:

Lots of deals on used sports cars, try and test drive a couple and get an idea what one you really like driving. Try not to buy a car because it appears to be a good deal. Notable classic sport cars on the cheap...BMW M3, Mazda Miata, Porsche Boxter & Cayman, Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Mustang, Subaru WRX, Nissan 350Z, Mazda RX-8, and Toyota MR-2.

Quoted from Parzival:

This just popped up on my FB

When I look at used vehicles there are some red flags to watch out for....the biggest red flag is the engine being replaced or not original. Often times the swap was not done properly and leads to continuous problems for the new owner of the vehicle. I would not buy a re-built or swapped engine vehicle unless it was performed by a professional restorer. The second biggest thing to watch out for is the condition of the title to the vehicle and whether it is a clean title or not. When it says 'Salvage' title that means the title is no longer clean. It greatly effects the value of the vehicle and often is because the vehicle has been in a major accident and the owner attempted to fix it.

The older Corvette's are fun cars for the bang for your buck. We used to own a 1981 Corvette with mirrored T-Tops. The main problem we had was trying to dial in the carburetor. We finally got it running good with a new Holley carb kit. The car was only valued at $11,000 back in the 1990's in mint condition and I remember breaking one of the mirrored T-Tops and having to buy a replacement. That damn mirrored T-Top cost me $600 to replace. The car was really fun to drive with the huge Corvette hood and it cornered like it was on rails. We had a ton of fun with the 1981 Corvette.

#1146 2 years ago

For summer fun, you cannot beat an 88 or 89 supercharged MR2. Go cart that's street legal.

#1147 2 years ago

Have owned tons of classic GM trucks and cars (mostly 60's stuff) but right now no classics, have a pair of trucks for me and the wife - I bought a 2006 Silverado SS Intimidator edition (Dale Earnhardt package, I call it the Redneckinator); wife got jealous that I had a truck so I picked up another 2006 Silverado SS (in silver birch metallic) for her. My "weekend" ride is a 2006 Chrysler 300 SRT8 that I picked up not long ago with practically no miles (under 10K) to replace another of the exact same car after I sold the old one to a friend. Lots of bang for the buck in that SRT8.

Quoted from VacFink:

Thanks, and at least in the first generation of these cars - the only model that you could get with -all- the options. The Chargers, Magnums, and Challengers were all down-level by comparison, even when fully loaded.

It's taken a while for modern car looks to grow on me, but I do find myself really liking this car. I bought the previous one in 2012 and for several months I'd just go to the garage door and open it and admire the sexy beast in there.
