For reaching the paper it is simple, steer with your knee, while texting on your phone and reach into the back to get the printouts.

Jason,

I had a  slightly different problem with my Mach 1. My car came with the optional toaster oven (In Avocado green of course). I was always having to stop when the bell rang signaling the toast was ready.

Now.....thanks to your very helpful suggestion, I no longer have to pull off to the side of the road which can be dangerous!  I can now steer with my knee while continuing to text on my phone and reach into the back with my now free hand to enjoy fresh hot toast!    ::thumb::      :whistling:

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

I have finally figured out how to get faxes to come through the glovebox without interfering with the blend-door operation or being incinerated by the heater core !!

Don C,

Sure wished I had seen this video earlier. I had an HP printer and laptop I would have gladly paid the shipping costs so that they could have received the same  "Processing"! Some of the WORST customer service I had ever experienced!    :@

Has anyone tried adding a toilet to your cars? :chin: :chin: You could add a toilet cover with cushion, keep the seat back, add a trap door to let the stuff go down through a hole in the floor pan, and you can have your toilet paper hanging off the glove box. This may be an easy add and you don't even need to let the steering go. Just glue your tablet to the center of the steering wheel and you can do your bathroom business, watch TV, check emails and drive, all at the same time. Oh! and be careful not to open the trap door hole on top of the exhaust.

Gotta love that color combination- I am a huge fan of green. Had some great times back in the 1970's. As far as the wacky original poster- I bought a Brother multifunction unit for my home office a few years ago, and it has been the best printer I have ever used. Really sips the ink whereas the HP printers I have had in the past drank up ink. Some great options being discussed in this thread. hehe How about car record players from the 1950's and early 1960's, those must have been nice. ;)

the only way I would attempt a burn out is if my mechanic would let me do it in his parking lot. that way when I grenade any number of original, crusty parts, I won't need a tow. it will be tempting though, as I am just finishing replacing the u-joints and installing a 3.73 posi to replace the old 3.10 open diff.

Why put a 3.73 in if you are not going to put it to good use?  And if it does blow - well then you will know better not to do it again. :whistling:  

 

No guts - no glory! :D

its not a question of if, its just a matter of when. my car was a barn find, very original( aka not well maintained or updated)

I have broken so many parts over the last 6 months that have resulted in tows, that my AAA is used up for the year.

I am creeping up on enough replacement parts installed that one of these days I will trust the car to actually not breakdown under normal conditions.

I've noticed recently that I have a lifter issue, the dreaded 1 key typewriter sound which is intermittent. not sure I want to build enough rpms for a burnout until I can get the engine apart and see what is going on. that may have to wait until winter. I want to drive the car this fall

 

my basic build plan is 1) get the car reliable as a driver 2) get the car to do a burnout without breaking 3) make the car feel fast 4) get the car to a drag strip with my son without it breaking on the track. if I can accomplish all 4 things, it will be a win !

I understand and don't blame you.  Just kidding with you earlier.  You never know what might happen even with new parts.  As far as the lifters have you adjusted them since you had the car?  Don't know if you have had the valve covers off but if not you would also see what the insides look like.  Clean or all gummed up.

 

Good luck on your build and may the Mustang gods bestow you with good fortunes.   ::thumb::
