Tech- - STEERING WHEELS AND SUSPENSION / Continental Tire lawsuit
« on: July 30, 2008, 07:33:15 PM »
AHA !   I knew those crappy Continental tires wore out too fast!   If you purchased a Chrysler/Dodge car since 2003 with the ContiTouring tires, you may be eligible for a claim and a rebate for them wearing out after 20k miles.   A class action suit has resulted in a settlement.  Check it out at

Here's the wife and kid inside our 6 car garage under construction up in the foothills........I should put a lift in there so Snotty doesn't have to use jackstands anymore......I'm putting a hot tub out back so I can relax while Snotty's working on my cars.......

Site Questions and Announcements / Snotty ill

Hey guys, don't know if you knew, but Snotty fell ill and had acute appendicitis a few days back.......he's still in the hospital but should be out soon.  I visited him yesterday and he was sick from the pain medication.   I told him we're all pulling for him to get well soon.

Tech- - ELECTRICAL / The Doors
« on: June 07, 2008, 04:00:15 PM »
Hey guys, I just got back from taking the Hurst for a ran great, but I tested the headlight doors........when you throw the Light switch on, it opened the doors (lights work).....but, when you turn the Light switch off, the doors don't close and the switch makes a clicking and/or beeping noise (lights turn off).....sounds like it's trying to close the doors but no that a bad relay or switch?.......they worked OK after Snotty put the new door motor in.......

General BS and Laughs / Cat Burglars
« on: May 06, 2008, 08:26:09 PM »
Unbelievable!  I just saw the news and there's been a rash of catalytic converter thefts off vehicles here in Bakersfield lady just went in the Target store and when she came out, her cat converter was gone !!!   Apparently, the thieves can get $200 for each one because of the precious metals (platinum, rhodium, etc) in the converter........local muffler shops are reporting record numbers of cat converter least they didn't put a banana in yer tailpipe like in Beverly Hills Cop !..........remember back in the 70's when all you had to worry about was gas siphoners? the way, how come nobody's doing that these days, when gas is 4 times what it was back then?

Tech- - DRIVE TRAIN / 300C slipping
« on: April 07, 2008, 11:59:42 AM »
I noticed my 2005 300C was not engaging in drive when cold for some time.....then I got on the Freeway the other day and it went "Vroom" like it was in neutral but it was in drive.....the engine light came on and I took it to the shop......any idea what causes this?.....heck you can't even check the tranny fluid on those things.....there's no dipstick, dipstick !

General BS and Laughs / Mecum Mania
« on: April 05, 2008, 07:14:17 PM »
Just when you couldn't get any more BJ's (Barrett-Jacksons) auctions on SpeedTV, now they're showing the Mecum auctions 24/7 on HD Theatre..........the prices are a heckuva lot more reasonable than what a BJ will cost can actually buy a decent car without winning the Powerball or pushing yer rich grandma's wheelchair down a flight of stairs with her in it.....

General BS and Laughs / California to require smog on pre-76 cars
« on: March 25, 2008, 04:08:42 PM »
I put this in the "BS" section because that's where it belongs......the California legislature is proposing a bill that would require smog controls on all pre-1976 cars........of course, most don't have them, so 'THE OWNER'S WOULD HAVE TO ADD THEM"..........can you imagine adding smog controls to a 1968 Hemi GTX.....???   these bum politicians need their heads examined, or removed from their rectums, whichever comes first.........if these dunces would spend their time doing something useful, instead of interfering with decent taxpaying citizens, maybe we'd have a nice place to live.......but, we have criminals running the streets while these fulkin' ash holes are worried about a 40 year car polluting their air.........unbelievable.........I don't even have the words to denounce these idiots......can somebody send me some choice ones to use when I write a letter to these flockin' clowns?
