Vehicles rust. I get it. You can’t help but look down the street however and see that cars seemingly fair a lot better than trucks do- and they are closer to the salt spray.
Well, you always hear it. You probably say it. But who is actually willing to do something about it?
Been pondering this one lately so I figured I’d ask!
Just moved to the area and I was wondering if anyone knew of any clubs in the area? I am mainly into older stuff, but also looking for people near here that have a similar interest. later on this year, I will be in search of a place to wrench/ work on small projects on my off time as well. I am in Shelby Township!
Just got my first project. Been on the Jalopy Journal and Ford Barn talking about it. I am all for advice, so give me some. I got 2 videos so far.
EVEN MORE PICS!!! Got this for five bucks today, bought it because it was old, looked cool, and cheap. No rust, and the wiring has cloth insulation, so what is it from? UPDATED!!!! Got some wierd measurements for you:
Whenever I see a fuel economy run, I always hear low rpm, and go. However, wouldn't being in the power band be the most efficient way? Minimal throttle application for the most acceleration response?
Hey there. I just got my stuff for a welder and am starting to play with steel. My first thing I will do after fooling around a bit will be a headache rack. Look at my renders and tell me what you think!
Just wondering they are all fighting...
Hey there opponauts! I can buy a chevy apache for 3k. Thoughts?
I am going to look at a 1965 chevy II tomorrow. Owner says it has a straight six, and I don't know what size it is. It could be the 194 or 230. It makes a difference, and I need to know.
I know that there are a lot of really great ones there, and I really have some learning to do when it comes to modeling, but vote on your thoughts of mine! This is really the first car I have ever finished with my 3ds modeling, and it has all been self taught. Give it a thorough judging!
Runs drives, automatic, no rust whatsoever... Sounds like a great deal, but parts can be hard. Would be my project vehicle, as I already have a truck. I am somehow attracted to these. Should I buy it?!
Based on NADA average values, has msrp adjusted for 2.5% inflation
Well, link below. If the engine cleans up, so be it. However, it would be pretty sweet to have a turbo 4 cylinder in the car. However, nada rates the car at 19k low retail, which could kill me at the dmv. Listed for 900, but could go lower. Thoughts?
I got back from The great race 2014 in Lowell Massachusetts. It was very cool, and the whole city basically revolved around cars today. Had a great car show beforehand, and the ceremony was pretty cool. What I did learn during the ceremony however was that there is a such thing as an x-cup.
People who want a project (with little body work), check this thing out! I do not know about parts availability, but still...
How hard would it be to replace a rear quarter on a bronco? I have never done one before, but from what I understand, I just put point welds about a foot apart from one another, grind them down, and then continue until the gap is filled.
