Re: 2009 Shelby GT500 Convertible

I was able to get some maintenance items done last weekend on the Mustang. Normally with only 17k miles, you'd never consider this type of maintenance, but being 14 years old, it's all been hot and cold a LOT of times, so I figured what the heck. I changed the blower oil by pulling the plug on the f...

Re: 1987 Corvette Z52

Over the last two Saturday's we got the new pushrods in and the rockers "adjusted" for now. The lower intake was two Saturdays ago, and the plenum and runners was yesterday's session. We got the valve covers put back on too. Someone used RTV and rubber gaskets at the same time, so we had t...

How much weight savings did you get from that battery too? I'm guessing at least 15lbs. That tar flooring seems like a terrible job, but the floor looks sweet underneath.

Re: 1965 Oldsmobile 442

Those look cool because nobody runs their cars that way, but I like the mags way better. I still think you're going to really dislike real bias tires. I remember them on my Pinto and they sucked. Now, yours are a lot skinnier than mine, so maybe that will help somehow. But like you said, you have bo...

Re: 2009 Shelby GT500 Convertible

I got my "new" shift knob this week which is just an OEM handle VS the aftermarket white knob that came on the car. I got that installed this morning, topped off the oil that was a half quart low from the dealer's fresh oil change (5w50), and leather treated everything leather. I have new ...

Re: 1987 Corvette Z52

One thing is for sure, I'll have the cleanest gas around. So silly. And then the "temperature sensor" I was going to order is actually a cooling fan switch. That one took me quite awhile to figure out this morning.

Re: 1987 Corvette Z52

Yesterday we planned to put the new roller rockers on, throw in the pushrods, and adjust the valves, and maybe put the lower intake on. That went out the window when we read the directions and they were pretty specific about making sure you were using NEW pushrods. They didn't even have to be Comp C...

Re: 2017 Dodge Challenger SXT - Mostmint #45

My opinion is that if you plan to actually drive that car, especially with any aggression, I would tie the subframes together at least, and maybe even make some sort of X support underneath that car. The way those floors are so wavy, I have to think a good part of the structural integrity has been c...

Re: 1987 Corvette Z52

Some visual progress today with the cylinder heads getting bolted back to the short block. We still have a long way to go, but at least it looks like something is happening!

Re: 1996 Collector Edition Corvette

OR you could buy a rebuilt unit with a more acceleration friendly gear ratio and just swap it in. :D

Re: Marry Christmas and Happy New Year

It was an amazing year for me both for business and for cars. Got to cruise the white Mustang a ton with the top down, and then replace it with the GT500 which should make 2023 even more fun. We have the Corvette to wrap up while it's cold, and hopefully get some wheel time with that by Spring too. ...

Now paint the 4 4 and 2 on the sides in red, orange, and yellow like the badge on the side of the car colors.

Re: 2009 Shelby GT500 Convertible

You're definitely paranoid. :P In Ohio there are no zeros on plates, they're all O. It took me awhile to figure that out on their website. But I'm not in any real big hurry in this thing, and I really don't do too much stupid stuff anymore, so if someone wants to write my plate number down, have a g...
