So Jason, what's up with the AKA?
Title: Welcome Vick Ferrari!!
Post by: Jason Medhurst on December 07, 2008, 04:17:24 PM
I think there might be something wrong with the site.  I was not able to retrieve my old handle.  Thats cool, this is sort of a tribute to Andy Kaufman at any rate.
 
Glad to be here! 
 
I am getting the Newport back this Tuesday from the paint shop (again).  I wasn't happy with the first effort, so it had to be reworked. 
 
New motor in, new paint, next, new interior and tranny.  I think I'm going to go for a 2200 stall converter.  I have never driven a stall converter, but a freind of mine has convvincede me that it will help get the car motivated.  I also think that I am losing a lot of power through the old transmission.  I am hoping that a new crisper shifting tranny will get more power to the ground.  What do you guys think?

Oh wow, just noticed my rating name!  Simca.  That has got to be a reference to Latkza's wife, right?  I love when people catch the subtle reference!
 
Who came up with that?  Nice work!(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley32.gif)

Talking about Ford ave, did anyone see the message from Ford to GM?

http://www.dubdaily.com/?p=4562 (http://www.dubdaily.com/?p=4562)

 
I have always liked cars of various breeds, never was into the dumb fights over who was better.  I always thought they all made crap, and made good stuff. 
 
The merger betyween Chrysler and GM will sure quiet a bunch of those arguments!

That is amazing!!
 
So, I don't know if anyone knows, but Vick Ferrari was the alter ego of Latka Gravas (Andy Kaufman's character), the mechanic on Taxi.

I love Werner Klemperer!  I think he died recently.

you know, the only time people consistently use the word "bludgeon" is when describing Bob Crane's murder!

Title: Welcome Vick Ferrari!!
Post by: Jason Medhurst on December 11, 2008, 07:32:29 AM
Here in AZ, the gas prices are $1.65 US gallon or $2.01 CAN per gallon or $0.43 US per liter or $0.53 CAN per liter.
 
Hope that makes sense.  I wasn't sure what the unit of measure to go with as we have people from both sides of the border in this.
 
Do we have any people from Mexico?  I thought many big Chryslers made it down there.
