By popular demand, I am afraid I must enforce the rules.  I am just as guility in participating in them and Leaburn was dropping his hint to us all.  Every time I saw his car pictures, I kept saying he's right!  You should have siad something to me Lea. . . .  Being exhausted half the time, I don't think about it much, not to mention the illnesses I have.

Therefore, the rules say there will be no political or religious discussions..  We've done good on the religious stuff, but recently allot of political stuff is popping up.  Granted, there is allot of disheaval out there, but we can't have it here.
The two most recent threads have been locked.

General BS and Laughs / S.H.I.T.
« on: April 25, 2011, 05:29:25 PM »

Manure...  An
interesting fact

Manure:  In the 16th and 17th centuries,
everything had to be transported by ship and it was also before the invention
was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet, but
once water (at sea) hit it, not only did it become heavier, but the process of
fermentation began again, of which a by product is methane gas of course. As
the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did)


began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night
OSeveral ships were destroyed in this manner
before it was determined just what was happening  

After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the
instruction ' Stow high in transit ' on them, which meant for the sailors to
stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the
hold would not touch this

volatile cargo and start the production of methane.

Thus evolved
the term ' S.H.I.T ' , (Stow High In Transit) which has come down through the
centuries and is in use to this very day.  

You probably did not know the true

history of this word.  

Neither did I.   

I had always thought it was a golf term.

Most of the work is just in and out.  The 65 needs to have the rad pulled.  That one will take the longest

A friend called me about 2 62 Chryslers in Florida.  The pair is 300 Bucks.
One is a 62 300 Vert, solid all the way around except for one floor on the right front.  Dash is gone, no engine and trans is in the trunk.  No rust  as the car was covered an inland.  But the top is gone and interior is rough.  I have a complete dash in my attic, and I have the parts car in AZ.
The other is a 62 Newpie 2 Door HT.  Complete with also no rust.  The 2 door alledgedly has the 300 interior and is closed up.  Not too many more details on that one.  I have pictures coming.
The deal is way to good to pass up.  Even if I just make the 2 into one and flip it

General BS and Laughs / What a mess. BIG MESS It;s Baaaaaaaaaaaack
« on: March 31, 2011, 08:44:14 PM »

I can't post the pictures because I can't connect my laptop to the internet. 
Guys.  It was great meeting Rich and Ed this week.  Unfortunately, after they left, I had a serious porblem.
I had an accident!  Of all the people!  I can't post the pictures because my internet adaptor got broken in the process.  So I am still here at Chris's house.
The truck has at least 5,000 dollars worth of damage on it, is barely diveable.  The right tire has a gash and the drag link is bent.  The bumper, hood, right front fender are totaled. . . the right door is questionable.  I didn't get the vital parts, or the frame, but with no lights on the right side, I can't drive at night too well.  The right fender si sticking out 6".
Tomorrow I hope to have all this internet fixed so I can put up a picture.  Hopefully I will be  heading home tomorrow.  I have cancelled the rest of the trip.
I'm OK  
 Felt like I hit a pothole, until I saw this big pipe laying across the hood.  The sun blinded me for a moment and the road suddenly ended.

Hey Lea
Is there a 225 78 14 tire?
The biggest I can find is 215 and I really don't want to put the 62 on those tires.  I'm debating what to do. 
I was thinking of putting the 14" ralleys from the fury, on Scotts car, but the tires aren't  big enough.  215's are only rated to 1650 pounds.  That means 3 tires worth of capacity.  Not much reserve capacity with passengers.  A 225, 15 is rated to 1875  That's 20%.  I guess your road wheels are the wheel of choice.

MEMBERS Project Cars in Progress / 77 Newport Dash in a 72 Polara
« on: March 02, 2011, 05:42:44 PM »
Well here we go.
I'm on hold with the Blue Diamond because of weather, I am on hold with the trans, waiting for the Ultra Bell.  So I start to get the dash assembly ready
In looking at drawings of the 72 frame and comparing it to the 77 frame, I swear they are pretty close to being the same..  The hardest part will be modifying the bulk head on the right side since the heater assembly uses better technology.
Anyway, Picture tells a thousand words.  It took an hour to do this one little piece. 
I'm going to Mask off the lense and coat it with Satin clear to lock this stuff down.  I hope

In order to get better air flow, I need to yank the grid heater in the intake.  The factory is very restrictive.  I've been beta testing this guys stuff with great results in the past.  I didn't do this item because I don't drive enough anymore.
What you are looking at is a new Heater, Made in the USA.  It goes on the end of the intake horn,  As you can see, it's pretty wide open in there.
To removing the old original heater, it takes 2 hours.  Installing this one takes 15 minutes.  You wonder what goes through these engineers heads sometimes.
Can't wait to get this installed
