I CP’ed this because I often forget the first gen malaise Seville was RWD. It’s the 2nd gen cars I think are the most forgettable malaise Cadillacs, and I truly would rather have a Cimmaron as a talking peice over one of those. Read more

Nice! I have an older set of Torin brand 6 tons from TSC and they don’t have a pin - I like that as an extra safety measure though, I may need to look into those. Read more

A few points - definitely check these if you have them, and get them returned. Pay attention to the teeth on the stand bar too, I’ve seen some of them that are very shallow - this may be the thing causing the recall, the forming dies for the teeth are getting worn on the tooling. Read more

Maybe I’ll have to wheel this XJ in and do a quick video going over it. It’s rough but perfect at the same time! 95 Cherokee sport 2-door, 4wd/auto. Read more

Haven’t had too many recently as I sold mine to a buddy a bit over a year ago. But I still work on it occasionally and can get some video when I do. Don’t tell David Tracy but I also got a 2 door XJ Cherokee that belongs to a family member waiting to get back on the road...

While this is clean, I don’t think the 125k miles justifies a $4,000 price. If it’s super clean underneath then great. Read more

Totally agree - plus, if that time comes, imagine the stress from working at the hospital, dealing with the positive test, worrying about family, and now you gotta go move an RV? Read more

I love this car, but 25k is definitely someone checking to see if the market for these has gone aircooled Porsche. Hint: It hasn’t. Read more

Looks like a decent price, truck looks generally decent...demand for these is pretty low so I kinda doubt it’d sell like that. V8 would be a hotter sell, the last of the 302's... Read more

If you were a parts hoarder and the yard doesn’t charge a ton for them, there are some SHO specific parts that would be good to toss in storage.  Bumper covers look clean, spoiler, etc.

Crown Vic - Get a 2003 or newer so you have the rack and pinion steering. They handle (and hold straight lines on the road) much better. Better for a novice driver. Read more

I had always thought they based this on a Mitsubishi body - but I was not fully correct. The Hafei Saibao is based on a late 90's Mistubishi Lancer. Read more

Definitely a good reason why - I suspect this also makes certain certification tasks easier, or at least the overhead to prep for them - they’ve already worked it out on a platform sibling.
