    Your opinion on this repair (Carpenter & Upholstory Work)

    Here's a little update. So far the repair holds up just fine and i'm using the chair everyday. Up to 12 hours per day. The reason i'm posting this is that today the "recliner spring" broke in half. (See pics) But this is no big deal if i can find a replacement. I bought this chair probably 5...

    Stockish 440 dyno RWHP results

    Is this an automatic or manual transmission car? I guess automatic? If so the rule of thumb 20% gross to net loss + another 20% transmission/driveline loss seems to be pretty accurate!

    How does a mecum auction work?

    Well when i first found out about the auction in las vegas this sounded like a great idea. I love las vegas. So going there for vacation and also attending a large mecum auction seemed like a no brainer. But after digging deeper i'm not so sure anymore. In addition to what you guys said: I...

    Cars with aftermarket undercoating.

    I'm not a fan of undercoating and this is exactly the type of undercoating that scares me the most. I mean why would you apply it like that if not to hide something?

    Selling Tips Needed - Test Drive or Not?

    In case someone is seriously interested and shows proof of funds (maybe a security deposit) i would let him testdrive. After all i wouldn't want to buy a car without test driving it myself aswell.

    How does a mecum auction work?

    Well that helps a lot, thanks. :thumbsup: Also thanks for highlighting their tricks/scams. Some more questions: Can you only inspect the cars on auction day or already a day, week etc. prior? Can i spontaneously decide that i want to bid on a car or do i have to decide/inform them before it...

    How does a mecum auction work?

    Last week i noticed there will be a mecum auction in las vegas on october 17-19: https://www.mecum.com/auctions/las-vegas-2024/ So now i'm toying with the idea of flying to vegas and attending. (If so mainly as a visitor but i would register as a bidder just in case.) This would be my first...

    Engine oil?

    I'm using 10W30 from Rektol Classic which probably isn't available in the united states. But it is conventional (non synthetic) 10W30 with high ZDDP/Zinc.

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

    While i personally would love to see it restored back to factory specifications, this sure sounds like fun car. If you go that route i would consider getting a schwartz performance or roadster shop chassis built. And then i would take it on the autobahn (in your case a high speed track) because...

    Well since this car sold for about the same amount (anybody know if that is an ls1, ls3 or what?) https://bid.cars/en/lot/0-38753672/1970-Chevrolet-Other-0000136370R206643 i guess you're right.

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

    Thankfully it's not a hemi car with a 4 speed & numerically low gear ratio. :D (Autobahn) But this is above my financial abilities anyway. I think this should be bought and restored by someone in the US (to save shipping and tax for parts) and then maybe shipped around the globe to wash the...

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

    Well i was mainly concerned because of this: But if you can prove this thing is real it might not be that bad of a buy depending on the final bid. I'm not an expert but i've heard that if a car burns down the metal softens and the chassis becomes less rigid. But then:

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

    The picture says no vin and i also can't see a vin in the pictures? Yes it seems to have a fender tag but can't read anything on it. Buildsheet probably burned down with the car. Never meant to imply this was a factory hemi car. I just meant that a hemi engine would be worth more than 440 engine.

    Failed Smog !

    Here in germany i always let a shop deal with this crap... So in case shops can do this stuff for you, i suggest paying them to deal with it.

    Blown fuses that do not look blown

    Just a heads up. I just replaced 2 blown fuses in our 72 cutlass that looked great even after pulling them out. I was already scratching my head what the issue is when someone recommended me testing them with a multimeter continuity test. Turns out those visually beautiful looking fuses were...
