    Went to the dark side boys

    1-3” of the white stuff !

    Yesterday I set up in the flea market at Island Dragway in North Jersey. I live in South Jersey. I got up at 2:30, left at 4, met up with friends, got there at 6:15 and spent 8 hours standing in 44/45 degrees, 20-30 MPH winds and drizzle most of the time! I put out hubcaps and for an hour a...

    Burned out (NOT burn out) Superbird at IAAI (For auction, not mine)

    I am asking this because as much as I know about Mopars, I don't know Superbirds. If I have a very rusty 1970 Roadrunner with a very nice interior, is it the same? Will anybody know or will anybody care? I see lots of time with a sand blaster and at the trim shop. The other question is if there...

    Leftover Damage From Drunk Driver circa 1976

    Last year I wrecked my '01 Forester. Put her sideways in the wet and bounced off the concrete barrier. The nose was out about a half an inch or so. I took it to my friend's body shop. The estimate was $2700 plus frame rack time. He has the latest in high tech racks. Frame rack charge was about...

    Who here remembers doing this?

    YES! And I still have a bunch, one or two still on the cardboard card in the shrink wrap! And the cans, Pathmark Supermarket brand ATF and American Motors Limited Slip oil some of which is in Max's SureGrip. But most of the time, at home, we used a "Church Key".

    My annual PSA

    I don't have time to mow the lawn. I have "a kid" do it. He's 45 or so a brings his grandson sometimes! When I was mowing the lawn my wife had me bag the grass. Every time I stopped to empty the bag I would take a break, drink some water and sit for a while. It was a 6 hour gig! My PSA is...

    1966 426 Hemi???

    How does this sound? As it sits, $10,000-$12,000, Pull the plugs and the valve covers, squirt some lubricant in and it will roll over a couple of times $12,000-$15,000, Carbs, distributor, heads and manifold with correct casting and part numbers for an early production '67 Hemi, $15,000-$20,000?

    2 1/2 week road trip from Massachusetts to Florida and back

    If you want to avoid the 95 madness around Baltimore and Washington take Delaware Route 1 when you get below Wilmington. Then pick up RT 113 and go down through the Eastern Shore of Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. It's not that much longer, you get to go across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel...

    Warning: Dealership Rant!

    When I drove into the dealer the first thing they did was check the wiper blades! After 4 Toyotas my wife, in 1977, traded hers for a ’77 Subaru 2WD wagon. After that she and her father bought 7 more. When my wife died almost 8 years ago I inherited her 3 Subarus. ’90 Legacy that had been her...
