    At a loss with my Drivetrain Vibration

    I have a '59 Cadillac with a 2 piece drive shaft. It is a real PITA to get the center carrier aligned with the transmission AND the differential.

    Which muscle car is ugly?

    My '62 Savoy is considered ugly by most. I think it is as much about the reason you own it as it is the aesthetic that most judge it by.

    At a loss with my Drivetrain Vibration

    Driveshaft out of phase? Had this same issue, went to an old school driveshaft shop and they told me I was out of phase. There are a bunch of youtube videos that discuss this. Easier to watch than to try to explain.

    unswedge me

    IDK, I purchased one in 2020, pricy but I have 5 or 6 cars/trucks that I knew I would eventually need one for. Have to say it works great. Might have gone with the diamond tipped hole saw but wonder about the actual amount of use I would get out of one. The one from Goodson is very well made, I...

    Texas dream

    I have had some experience with this and there some "gotchya's" to be aware of. The biggest is that if the company you work for does not already have a presence/operation in the state you want to move to the company can be liable for payroll taxes and insurance rates in that state. Many...
