Quoted from PW79:

They see me roll’n
They hate’n

Love our '07 Toyota Sienna. Three of us pinheads roll to the PNW show every year in it. Comfortable, decent power, & room to bring home a pin or two if need be.

#1202 1 year ago

I don't have pictures on my phone now. But mine is a 46 Willys Jeep 2a. Also my fire department has a 34 Diamond T pumper which I love to drive. I will post pictures tomorrow.

I am not sure which vehicle would win in a race because both have top speed of about 40 MPH, not that either need to go faster!

#1203 1 year ago

It's a work van

A very nice work van. Packed with leather, acoustic glass, a touchscreen & semi-autonomous driving.

Feels like I arrive to jobsites in a limo lol.

My cousin didn't believe I sit upon my leather throne & snack upon aged cheese, dried meats & sparkling water whilst listening to lectures from "The Great Courses" (or Post Malone) inbetween appointments so I sent him the pic below hahaha.

The thing floats.

Silently.

It's like a secret luxury car.

I mean work van

Not from a car or truck but thought it would be appreciated. Didn't get to hear what the root cause was but you can see the scoring. It's from a 20 cyl. natural gas GE genset. I've had my share of low compression dished pistons running supercharges, but this dish takes the cake.

Here's a cast, versus forged, connecting rod failure and associated engine block and bevel gear case damage when a connecting rod bolt fails and slowly allows the rod to fatigue and snap.

I used to look forward to seeing that kind of stuff come in back when we had a machine shop. Made it easy to decide what cars to stay away from once you saw a pattern of destruction.

Best truck ever made!

I do have a word of advice...my 2018 Tacoma windshield just got hit by a rock on the highway and cracked the windshield. I called my aftermarket windshield guy I have used in the past to inquire about a new windshield. He told me that it is too new for aftermarket and that the lane changing departure radar system on the windshield requires re-calibration. Long story short it is going to cost me nearly $1200 for a new factory windshield with re-calibration. I about shit my pants, I am used to paying $250 for a new windshield. I also found out that the dealer offers a windshield protection plan for $399 for 5 years. After I spend $1200 on a fricking windshield I will fork over $399 for the warranty. If you have not gotten the windshield warranty-call the dealership and have it added on before you are in the same boat as me ):

If I did not have a boat, I would have either a 67 SS Chevelle or a 77 Trans Am. Probably the TA as that was the year I was born!
And don't try and change my mind as I love wakeboarding!

Wow, that sucks. My 2017 TRD Off Road 4x4 has a cracked windshield too. Started at the top and is slowly getting longer. The 17's didn't have the lane departure available available so mine should be around $300-350 I think. It does have the Go-Pro mount so gotta make sure that's included. I've heard this latest generation is very prone to cracked windshields. My 2007 Tacoma had 178,000 miles and never a crack, even with some pretty good rock hits. This one seemed to crack for no reason, just appeared one morning. Insurance should cover it though.

#1221 1 year ago

Drove 5 hrs out to New Mexico to pick this up yesterday. Its a 91 LX 5.0. AT car 2 owner. The first owner was an engineer in his 50's and he sold it to his mechanic, who I bought it from him and was his wife's daily driver. These are hard to find not abused. Wish it was a manual, but honestly if it was, it wouldn't be this clean and original. Will be a fun project.

A good pairing with my Roadmaster Wagon.

Very awesome and hard to find clean and assume stock? Nice score and love the white! What are you plans with it? As you know you can still do some mild bolt ons and have a fun/reliable car. My 89 LX (Dark maroon with Welds) was just bolt ons. Stock AOD w/Converter and mild shift kit, 4.10's, full exhaust, intake and 1.7's netted me 20-22mpg on the highway and mid 13's all day. I miss that car and daily'd it for 2 years in the early 2000's. Few pics of my old 90LX, 89LX and 93GT.

Great looking cars. I prefer the stripper LX look to the GT, but glad there's both.

This has 195 k miles, very stock, not a drip or leak. I could easily drive it another 50k without a problem. I looked at a few built cars, many with what I would do, and realized if I went that way, all the fun would be taken away.

I'm going to eventually do a manual swap, 5lug cobra brake upgrade, full suspension, probably QA1, then rebuild the engine with heads/cam/intake. Maybe a 347 stroker. Its really an excuse to buy parts and tinker. I'm not in any hurry, I bought solid car so I could enjoy it as a driver and keep it off the road minimally as I accumulate parts.

I love the white but its honestly my 2nd choice. I really want it dark emerald green. 93 cobra wheels in gold or black (I can't afford those 4k Maker's versions but they are so nice), no center cap probably a custom tail and hood I design.

For the next year or so, the focus will be braking/suspension/interior small things. The upside is I was able to get in an affordable car that's not destroyed. It won't go down in value, so if I find a green manual I might swap out if I haven't installed parts yet.

Quoted from danisme:

Insurance should cover it though.

I have had USAA insurance for 20 plus years and they have taken good care of me, but unfortunately I have a $1000 deductible and USAA does not offer a windshield replacement warranty. Dropping $1500 tomorrow morning for a new windshield and warranty, I think I will bring some KY or Vaseline with me. I am really pissed off that the dealer did not offer the warranty to me when I purchased the truck. If anyone buys a new vehicle with lane departure radar-make sure to ask for a windshield warranty.

#1227 1 year ago

Hey club members any of you guys have any car parts from cars you've owned (besides license plates) hanging on your garage walls? I'll start, a door skin off my Mustang when I raced it on the Bonneville Salt flats back in 92 and 2 fenders that I had a guy try making metal flairs for them. They wern't big enough so I hung um on the wall.

Thanks. I know it's a "little" out of the ordinary to have this kind of stuff hanging on the wall but I payed for them so I'm darn well gonna use um the one way or another.

#1230 1 year ago

Not nearly as pretty, here's my "hall of fame"

Two clutches and a pressure plate from my sons TT One was the original that had about 155k and the other is the replacement "high performance" one that cost quite a bit more than stock. He got about 20,000 miles out of it. Let me tell you, transverse powertrains on an AWD car are no fun to R&R a transmission on.

Finally, there is a gear. First gear to be precise, from my '01 Beetle Turbo. I let my son use it when he started driving legally (and I use that term loosely). Unfortunately, he learned my sins and was having lots of fun in an open parking lot with several inches of snow and a layer of spotty ice below the snow. What any 16 year old motorhead would do such as reverse donuts (it's FWD) and other stuff. He obviously was slamming between reverse and first or 1st & 2nd and went from no traction to full traction. After that, the car never went into 1st gear again. He comes home and says: "uh, dad, I think we need to adjust the shift linkage as something isn't right"....

The pictures of the gear tell the story. That was another fun project....

At least him being a motorhead and teaching him car repairs has made him unafraid to tackle any vehicle repair jobs. He now repairs my cars for me so I don't complain at all.

Wish I’ve saved parts like you as it’s a great idea. The best I have is an original 03 Terminator rod but not from my 03. Obviously the rainbow is not from oil!

EDIT: Added a picture of a low mileage rod I have too.

Ouch!

You did see my son's similar issue in posts 1206 & 1209, correct? Dealer wanted a little over $11k (more that the car cost when he bought it three years earlier). We did it ourselves and went beyond stock with forged rods for less than $4k (we valued our labor at $0/hr though).

#1237 1 year ago

Yep, that car belongs to a guy I know - late model Challenger - these engines are known for not tolerating much boost on the stock bottom end. I don't know if he had spent the money to go forged or not, but it's possible there were some issues with the builder. I already sent him some info on another engine. There are guys with totally streetable 1000HP+ monsters under the hood based off that engine but you gotta go forged, there's just no way around it.

Drop in forged pistons are required really for anything over 6lbs boost. The ring lands are too high in the Piston.

If it is not raining or snowing too hard, then it is top down cruising time. Yes we do get strange looks from our cousins from the south when it is 10 Celsius and we are on our motorbikes, open Jeeps, and convertibles with the roof down.
