Re: Chevelle Upgrades, 2019

I got caught with the different size splines after being assured that the MC SS steering box was a direct bolt in on the El Camino. Well, that's true if you get the MC SS box off a donor and take the pitman arm with it. Otherwise the pitman arm had to be replaced with one with the MC SS spline. In t...

Re: Chevelle Upgrades, 2019

Dave, Had the same issue when a Monte Carlo steering box was swapped in to the El Camino. There are two different diameters for that style of splines. Got it resolved with the seller listed here. https://www.tiresmoke.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1972&p=13144&hilit=1981+el+camino+pitman+arm#p...

I just noticed the cup holder on the driver's door. The guy has a sense of humor.

Re: 1978 Lincoln Continental Coupe

Don't think the Lincoln wants to be sold. I was taking it to get it cleaned up for a car show where I was going to park it with a "For Sale" sign on it. On the way the AC wasn't cold. WXO and I worked on it and found the refrigerant gone. Scheduled an appointment at Pep Boys to have them l...

Re: 2019 Driving Vacation

If the XTS were a 2016, the iphone would work but I haven't found a 2014 solution. The links you emailed are moving in the right direction, just need to find a solution that doesn't require mods to the car or $6XX price. (IIRC, the in-dash GPS map upgrade is about $150 so that's the upper limit on p...

Re: 2019 Driving Vacation

Something I neglected to post in the summary: smart phone/Google Maps connected to dash is much better technology than in-car GPS systems. Our 2014 XTS GPS data base is 5 years out of date and expensive to update. My Android phone is connected to the car's dash display and audio systems for voice ca...

Re: 2019 Driving Vacation

It was fun following you, the Cossick Farm is in Togo, MN., not too far from Bemidji, the home of Paul Bunyan. :) Hey 32V, Didn't know you were from MN. It is really beautiful country. Would love to see it again but it's a really long drive. We saw the Paul Bunyon statue but didn't stop for a pic. ...

BP,

I should have checked the odometer before we left but didn't. Had to be over 3000 miles since the most direct route from Raleigh to Bemidji is 1400+.

Home Again

We're home after an easy drive from Beckley, WV to Winston Salem, NC. I-40 from Winston Salem here was hectic with lots of nutty drivers. It was a great vacation seeing family and friends all along the way. We're blessed with great families and friends, some of which we may not see again given our a...

Re: 2019 Driving Vacation

Yesterday we drove thru some HARD rain in spots from St Ignace, MI UP, to Saginaw in the lower to see niece Meredith, husband Tom, son Lucas, daughter Veda, and dog Mavis. Found them all happy and healthy. Had a 50 MPH ride in the ATV. 0922191705.jpg 0922191654a.jpg Out to dinner. 0922191815a.jpg 09...

Re: 2019 Driving Vacation

We mostly vegged today. Had our coffee and donut holes (purchased yesterday) in the room. Walked the beach, napped, Sudoku on the deck, happy hour, more Sudoku, then GOOD, light dinner at Village Inn. We both had "Arnold" sandwiches named after a former employee whose name was Arnold. Warm...
