I read somewhere that he and his wife had planned on retiring in Greece. If that’s the case, he’s probably getting rid of stuff on his US properties that he doesn’t use much anymore.
Boy, ford really is serious about competing with the wrangler. I didn’t think they would be able to match the experience completely like this, but they’ve nailed it.
Never buy a car in its first model year!
if the location is remote enough, feel free to poop outside the box.
He’s seen them all now I think. But then also he’s six, and therefore an idiot.
No dice. I appreciate a V8 conversion having done a couple myself, but not in FWD configuration. No traction and it will plow like the Amish in springtime. The price would be a bit steep even in RWD configuration because who really cares about a Pontiac 6000?
Things that are inside are more reliable that things outside? Number of cars I have broken a door handle on, 1. Number of cars where a window motor went out, 5. It really doesn’t matter where it is placed, a simple lever will be more reliable than a sensor.
To me it kinda sounds like he’s psyching himself up on a sunk cost.
The Tesla Fanboism is strong with this one. Sounds like he’s begging for some Elon ... “musk.”
I’m sorry, the brass will what now?
Why would the brass fitting warp?
Not sure how a brass piece is going to warp. This is likely stronger than the plastic piece ever was. The only downside I can see is that the plastic housing it went into will likely break before it does, so the potential for the next repair to be much more difficult is higher.
How is this janky? This fix is less likely to break than the original design.
