What carnage?
I see 3, maybe 4 dead bugs on there. Maybe you should step on the gas a bit more. ;o)

Have you checked your tailgate glass by the way?
I think there might be a whole lot more dead bugs on the rear window, which have flown themselves to death because you drove so slow...

Quote from: 300Rag
Then..... Hermann  (BigBlockMopar) posted a pictire of his 65 300 on a patch of snow. The turquoise just popped and now I am committed to this combo, but will have to spring for a new roof. Really want to see it finished now. Thank you Hermann!

Glad I could help... LOL
When I had just bought my 300, it was dark blue with a white'ish' interior. At least I thought it was white. Later on it turned it was light blue, but it was bleached by the Arizona sun.
This was after I had sprung for an entire new black roof and interior. I had the car re-upholstered in the US before it came across the pond.
I had chosen black as that the easiest color to chose an exterior with.
Very shortly I had decided I would want the car to be a deep wine red metallic color. I had also chosen the chosen in the paintshops colorsample-book.
But whaddayaknow... on the day the paintshop actually planned to buy the paint, they came to me with the colorbook in hand, asking me if I was certain about the color.
I sat down with the sample-book in front of me and starting thumbing through it again. And that's when I came across the light turquoise color and I decided that was going to be the color from now on. Just minutes before the paint was actually ordered.
I'm sure a metallic wine red paintjob would've looked nice on the car aswell, but the turquoise color really freshened up the car.
In hind sight, had I known earlier that the original roof and interior color was actually light blue, I would have been tempted to have chosen for the original dark blue exterior and light blue interior.

Nevertheless I'm very happy with how the turquoise color turned out.

Oh and, one 'n' is enough in my name. I'm not THAT much of a
Germannnn...  :o)

The burning oil light tells you there's "Low to No Oil Pressure", not "Low oil level".

Good with the bigblock-swap Steve.

General Tech / Propane powered engine question
« on: March 09, 2010, 01:42:54 AM »
So, is this a Propane topic, or hydrogen?
Can someone please BAN the admin for derailling this topic!

As for the original issue;
A backfire "usually" has a vacuum-leak as the cause.
Weak or mis-firing ignition can cause this aswell, but not that often.

Is this a dual-fuel setup?
If so, check to see if the mixer is still mounted airtight on the carb.
Dual fuel-setups usually have a cable running to the dash to operate a airvalve in the mixer. If this valve is not seating well or just cracked open, the propane 'sees' a vacuumleak and will run lean because of that. Hence the backfire.
A good backfire could also disrupt the (idle)setting of the propane-system in a mixer.

Bought it the way it is, 'cept for the wheels, tires, flames and lowering job (which has a bit photoshop involved here).

 This is an ex-Johhny Rosen car. Friends of mine bought it years ago from him in AZ. They brought it over. I saw it in their garage and fell in love with it. But I could't buy it because there already was a buyer they had promised to car too first. But the guy didn't follow up so I could buy it from them.

My wagon had an incorrect 440 in it first. When it started ticking lightly I decided to find and put in a more correct 413 motor from an Imperial.
The ticking in the 440 turned out to be sold lifters that needed adjustment, but by the time we found out the 413ci was already waiting to be put in.
