Except it doesn’t go all the way back through C1s. 56 to 60 had oval tail lights.
To me, old is either if it carburated, or you have to go to specialty classic junkyards for parts, because none of the usual pick n pulls and the like go back that far. I consider my ‘02 Vette to be pretty new, my ‘94 Town Car to be getting up there, but not quite “old” and my ‘73 Dart is definitely old.
A few things I haven’t seen:
I’ve seen the car in Rochester NY so I assume thats where he’s from so maybe someone up there might run into it.
I used to. Hot air rework station to reflow the GPU, then I replaced the X-Clamps with bolts. I still have one that works okay 6 years later, so I’d say it works pretty well.
I can fit my 5 piece in my C5 Vette, provided I put the kick drum in my passenger seat.
Eh, I did a summer with no air in my Dart, and my hair was down to my mid back. It isn’t that bad on some cars. The problem is some cars have terrible airflow with the windows down, and that can be a problem.
I daily a C5. I’m just about to hit 90k. It has been in the family since it had 2000 miles in 2002. The only real issue it ever had was the steering column lock.
I am still in high school, and I am the guy wearing a leather jacket cranking AC/DC in a Vette...
Pull the tire off, and run over the edge with another car to break the bead. Pull a new stem through.
As I learned daily driving an $800 Dodge Dart for a year, always leave yourself an out. Try to always have 2 options to avoid the cars around should one of them do something stupid. That, and maintain a nice following distance.
Back it out a little bit, then wrap some bare solid core copper wire around it in a flat kinda washer like shape. Tighten it up. I’ve used that in a pinch and it usually doesn’t leak.

Best possible is over 30. My average around town is 22. It isn’t an average of 30, but it is pretty damn good.
On a trip, I can average 28mpg in my C5 all day long, even with mountain driving.
To be fair, my grandpa used to hand wash his cars in the winter when he lived in Pittsford.
Dump in a bottle of Bars. That should take care of the cylinder head.
Hack em out with a Dremel. I may have done that for a while with a Ford wheel on my Dart.
L98. I have had so many issues with the TPI setup. That and the 4+3 is no bueno.
I bought one. It never runs. I’ve dumped about 3500 into it in the past 8 months to try to keep it running. It overheated and blew a head gasket last week, because the fans don’t even kick in till 230 degrees. I have to deal with that now. For a couple grand more, I could of bought a C5, and that’s what I just did.…
