    Best way to swap KaryVan engine

    pull the pass side seat and door,drop the trans and crossmember and use a cherry picker to bring it/the motor out the door. make sure you remove the exhaust out of the way. also,wild is right you have to be extremely careful using the cherrypicker setup,because of the limited boom space.

    1972 Dodge Challenger @ Gateway Classic Cars

    no pride in work,i think. you can clearly see where they slipped trying to get the left side rivet out and gouged the vin tag and also bent it. surprised they didnt take a minute to work it back into shape and clean up that gouge. also,looking at the motor/gaskets and block,does it look like...

    All the stores in my area are our of Hot Wheels cars!

    yes,in fact when i sold out of my redlines,those Shell cars made the most money,i literally bought Real cars with the loot from those. they all had special paint colors and were Super hard to find in mint condition. a lot of redline guys dont even know about or have Shell cars.

    All the stores in my area are our of Hot Wheels cars!

    this. even if you can find a normal casting,that actually looks like a car. they used to have some great cars and decal/paint schemes,now its all fake made up goofy carp. if they do make a nice car,they stick a Hefty price on it,usually 3-5 bucks in a fancy package. also true that kids arent...

    speaking of fords,those triton motors also had the Smallest exhaust bolts ever,made out of tinfoil too. whatever metals they used in making them,the purity must have been really crappy. ive seen perfect body trucks that sound like clunkers and got junked simply because the bolts rusted/broke...
