    Cops on the Highway!

    Just a little rant... I was on the highway driving home the other day and came up on a cop car. One thing that has always bugged me is that if there is a cop around no one dares to pass him. Everybody gets all bunched up, no one can change lanes and it slows traffic. I decided I wasn't going to...

    Totally STUMPED!

    Had that exact same issue on my 70 fastback. But I finally found it....on the side of the road....in the dark...while on a date. Her enthusiasm for my diagnostic abilities on the side of the road...in the dark, was more than equally countered by her irritation at being on the side of the...

    Totally STUMPED!

    I can say that every car I've ever had would get sketchy at 2300 mph.

    Tubing to the Rear Shoks?

    Good for tearing out the upper shock mount. Might check for some damage there.

    Hooked had a 250 header for the Maverick. HOO 6602 was the number I think.

    Parts Wanted 302 C cylinder head

    Nope. The 302 cleveland is the same block/head architecture as the 351 Cleveland but with a different crank stroke. This different than using 351 Cleveland heads on a 302 Windsor block. That does require waterpassage changes. So, don't confuse Boss 302 heads with 302 Cleveland heads. Different...

    Parts Wanted 302 C cylinder head

    Genuine 302C heads have 2v ports but have an approximately 59cc combustion chamber. As far as I know, most people do not put them straight on a motor with flat tops...a little too much compression. They are what alot of aluminum aftermarket heads copy.

    B Pillar sheet avail or die??

    It would be easy to set it up as an Ebay listing and ship thru their Global shipping program (with fees and customs, but there is loss protection for both buyer and seller), or I could ship direct.

    Yeah, avocado and harvest gold were very popular in kitchen appliances. We had harvest gold dishwasher and fridge.

    Could it be front end lift at 100+ mph?

    Consider this...the front valance panel. It has an nice large opening between it and the bumper. As the air flows thru and down under the car. This might be a low pressure area. It is also probably level or even angled up and potentially acting as a wing. With the spoiler under it, it could be a...

    Which lift is preferred (2 post or 4 post)?

    Used to work on those! Crawled under them MANY times. But preferred to use the four post lift. Never used a two post, but I think a four post is better suited to working on rusty old cars. Had a shop recently use a two post to change tires on the Safari van. The jackass lifted it by the...

    More Stupidity with Fire and Gasoline

    I was fortunate enough to see Ernest Borgnine and his hammer in "Emporer of the North" as a kid....that kept me out of train yards.

    More Stupidity with Fire and Gasoline

    You flushed out the warm water?....pansy! I lived in the city, in grade school (that's k thru 8, for you guys in the suburbs) we played tackle football on asphalt. Because we had neither grass nor brains!...my left knee still hurts. I still have a set of Jarts...ebay won't let me sell them...
