General BS and Laughs / BACON
« on: June 06, 2015, 11:00:09 AM »
Now that's what I call wasted bacon. Too bad (in a morbid way) it didn't catch fire so you could smell it!

Yeah, it will be done in concrete and lots of rebar. My soil (if you can call it that) is clay, so it is as hard as a rock when dry, sticks like Gumbo mud, and takes weeks to dry out, total silt and finest stuff you can imagine. I don't think I have found more than 30 rocks the size of a golf ball on the property in my 23 years here, they are all imported. Needless to say, I'm going to let someone else do the digging and scraping when it comes to that, and pretty sure it won't go anywhere.

I get to start cleaning out the Nash after a couple little things to do in the yard, then when done, push it in the garage. I just love that the first thing out of the wife's mouth was, so the garage gets used for the Nash? I thought you were going to take it back to the garage. My response was, well, if I take the Nash back to the garage, the Charger, Triumph, Camaro, and all the stuff you have stored back there won't allow me to work on any of the cars, so first I have to get the driveway finished, and the only way I can do that is if I put the Nash in the garage, then, when the driveway is done, I will put her back out there and work on her outside (I'll put the picnic canopy over it for shade).

I'm in the process of putting in some chain link fence and a gate, the front driveway is then going to be open. I spent almost two hours digging out the old gate fencepost and at least two bags of concrete setting it, what fun. Tomorrow it gets relocated and a fresh burying in more concrete. A piece of fence on either side of it and then I have the Nash to clean out and pushed into the garage, see if I can get it running. Wish I had the ability to take pictures and show what is going on with it, but I will be descriptive. Getting it running so I can at least move it around will be about the limit of things right now, it hasn't been driven since 1998, some of the wife's friends have taken some small things off it over the years while I was deployed over the years, nothing major, but I do have to do the carb to rebuild, brakes, few things like that for starters.

I'm not completely sure what is happening with the site, maybe Steve can give us an update of the situation. I check here several times a day and don't usually start posts myself, I'm more answer, comment and help, so more tech support than anything right now. Sooner or later I will have my projects start and will do pictures and updates, but hey, took 18 years just to get to  build a garage (with wife's approval), house is done and signed off (yeaaaa), working on fence and driveway, and when that is done, hopefully the projects will get started. Until then, start and make posts and comments just to keep the place open, if nothing else, everyone have a great day, summer is here.

I did have a little project a little off brand I did for my Vietnam Vet, retired machinist buddy. He's into those Lightning Trucks, has several of them, always returned them to stock. Well, he found another engine/trans/wiring harness, and at this point have talked him into something he can drop it into and not have to worry about smog rules (pre-75). Goes to start the engine on a stand he has built, no compression on one bank, low compression on one bank (engine sat in a garage for about five years). So 4 bent valves and broken valve guides on one head, poor quality valve job on the other head. I spent 6 days and 32 hours porting the heads, 7 hours of that was on the blower intake, replaced the broken valve guides and got the valves reseated. He got it fired up a couple days ago. Ported 5.4 heads with a blower...will be interesting to see what it actually puts out, but it sounds like my 440 with 3 inch exhaust, admittedly more like a big block than a 330 cubic inch little engine. Now he has to find something to put it in, then he is going to take one of his stock lightnings down to a dyno, then this monster down to the dyno and find out just how much gain a ported and massaged combustion chamber can really put out.

That was the address I gave him. Ever get anything from Dave Zatz? He said he emailed you yesterday, I will go over and double check things are OK. He was interested in getting ahold of you. Just checked and verified that was the address I gave him, and he did say he emailed you yesterday. I don't know what address or name he will be using.

It is a sad day but I do understand. I check multiple times a day to see if anyone has anything to say but it seems everyone is done with it. As something to save some of your great information, you may want to get ahold of Dave Zatz(Dave Z) ( I think that's his full name) over at allpar, he way want to archive some of your great information, just as a thought. Hoping some of the guys would want to go over there, lots of decent guys and gals over there, they try not to be political so it is a pretty adult site with lots of information.

I found out there were roughly 14 convertible 4speed 300L built. Looks pretty good and wants $15K for it. Older restoration but not bad looking in the pictures. Go over to the "other site" if you want to see a picture of it and see if the guy still has it.

What's it worth, no rust, very straight and complete, older restoration but nice white all over car.
