      That reminds me of another related EV benefit: yellow lights. If you're the sort of driver who frequently guns it when the light ahead turns yellow, you'll love driving an EV. For one, the instant...
    2. How to build a sleeper: a pictorial guide

      Yesterday afternoon at work, a co-worker told me about a car she recently saw at the local grudge races. "It reminded me of your car," she said. It was another Grand Prix? "No, it was a brown turd...

      I'll let Chris expound on his experience, but to sum it up: the seller was not actively advertising the car. Chris just saw the guy driving it, expressed interest, and the owner told him to throw...

      Enough that the three of us decided to use my hoist to put it in the truck. ;)

      Of course. Naturally, our plan is to re-gear and install the limited slip at the same time. But that will be after it's running.


      Speaking of, we got together at my garage on Tuesday and...

      You're just jealous. That's okay; so am I. I'd love to have a similar plot of land out behind my house. What's better than the size of it is its precise location. Even though he is in the heart...

      Ah-HA! I was wondering why you were asking about Lincoln locking this car. Now it all makes sense.

      FYI: the wheels on the replica are a factory Cherokee wheel. The ones in the film look... different. If you could make out the logo on the center cap, that might be helpful.

      That's all I got.

      Today (May 21st) is what I call Leaf Day--the anniversary of the day I purchased my EV. As I mentioned back in March, used Bolt prices aren't yet as low as I prefer... so I've decided to hang on to...

      No doubt.

      Seriously, though: after my divorce finalized in December 2017, I went into a financial hibernation of sorts. I cut back just about every unnecessary expense, paid off all non-mortgage...

      Congrats again, Wes. Fantastic write-up, as expected.

      But I'm still bummed you weren't able to stop by on your way home. :(

      Related trivia: for the 1985-1987 Olds Cutlass 442 and the 1985-1988 Monte Carlo SS, GM specified the same front coil spring rate for both vehicles (420 lb/in). However, the cars used different...

      This platform ran from model years 1977 through 1990. When introduced, both the Olds 350 and 403 were available. However, 1979 was the last model year for the 403 and 1980 was the last year for the...
    14. At last: the work begins!

      First: Mike and I finally crawled under the car to get a look at the rear axle. It does indeed appear to be an 8.5 after all, which means it ought to be sufficiently strong for what we have planned....

      You're closer than me.

      And what IS it with this state--why is all the good car stuff always way up in Ogden?!?

      Utah, checking in.

      Since creating this registration class, the state has done away with all safety testing. Still, going Vintage lets...

      You've already told us in this thread that you are over this project. Why on Earth would you want to drag it on any further? Especially when you are 98% done now? Even if you do need to yank the...

      Well, darn. If you were going to drive it home, I was all set to invite you to stop at my place for a free L2 re-charge.

      (Seriously, though, you've got a great setup arranged.)

      I'm sure I did not. While all there, it isn't in showcar status--far from it. But if you're curious, here's a shot of the 'farm' so you can at least see it.
