I don’t know diddly squat about detailing, but this stuff is PFM...
It’s a 2013, loaded with all the wizzgigs, a 3.6 Penta-er... Volksastar V6, and came with massive depreciation courtesy of the previous owner who paid $41,000 for it 6 years ago. We paid $8,500.
I dragged this little sweetie home this afternoon. With some TLC, she gon be pretty.
I’m in the third row back, 68th from the foreground. Only 16 years after I first set foot on a college campus, I dun gradutated.
It was a gorgeous day, so I decided to take care of some stuff I’ve been ignoring for a loooooong time.
I’m still getting tips on possible ways to remove this blasted snap ring. Several good ones, but that bugger ain’t coming out with anything less than a cutoff wheel.
On Sunday night I found myself, my wife and my 2 girls stranded in Denver with my connecting flight to Rapid City cancelled for weather. United was nice enough to NOT reschedule me for another flight, but rather to leave me in Denver to figure it out for myself. It’s only a 6-hour drive from Denver to Rapid with a 5…
I thought I'd just go ahead and reseal the old gearbox and... well... not just one, but BOTH of the eyes were broken off of this snap ring. Ain't no way in hell that sonofabitch is coming out of there. I've already marred things up pretty well trying, so it may be time to accept defeat.
My plan was to just throw some new seals in this nasty old thing, but there’s a *decent* amount of play in the sector shaft.
This popped up on the local FaceSpace Marketbook. 1970, 4x4, 390/4-speed. $2,500. Paint and body look decent and it might shine up nicely with mild patina. Engine needs a bath and some new seals, interior needs carpet, seat upholstery and door panels. Someone also hogged out the radio opening to accept a DIN stereo,…
The picture is of a 1962-1964 Studebaker 259/289 2bbl engine. I’ve seen plenty of these engines in my lifetime. It sticks out like a sore thumb when I see it.
I’m wanting to try my hand at making some YooToob car-related content. I’ve got a GoPro, a DSLR that’ll shoot video and some extremely basic knowledge on editing. But, I’m concerned about my lack of a microphone. I’d like some sort of clip-on wireless type doohickey, but I’m totally clueless about what’s compatible,…
I’m planning to cross off Wyoming and Montana this summer. Hawaii, Alaska, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts are high on the list, but who knows when I’ll get there.
I’ve had this thing for... 9? years... The blue ‘95 that came before it was with me for 8 years. I should tally up the number of other vehicles I’ve bought and sold in the time that I’ve owned this thing’s drivetrain. Wait, no I shouldn’t.
Seent in the church parking lot this morning.
Granted, there are zero details on thr truck, so maybe it’s an ultra-low-mile creampuff... but even then...
The world list an inventor, innovator and hot rodder today. I got to know Ken Austin a few years ago through my in-laws who worked as his caretaker for a few years. To say he was a driven man would be an understatement.
$6k for a 4.0/6-speed TJ is NP any day, assuming it’s not rusted in half!
