  1. Past hour
  2. I've driven parts of Route 66. From Joliet IL to Springfield IL and from Williams AZ (just south of the Grand Canyon) to Needles CA. You will find interesting buildings along every part of Route 66 to stop at, so expect lots of stops everywhere you go. In Illinois: Odell IL - restored Standard Oil Gas Station from the 1930s. Pontiac IL - Pontiac-Oakland Museum, and Route 66 Shield Mural (take a picture of car in front of it) - in the alley behind Route 66 Association Hall of Fame Museum. Also check out the murals across the street / in the alley with the Route 66 Shield Mural. They're pretty cool too. You will also find small gas stations and restaurants, old buildings along the way. I recommend getting off I-55 and onto Historic Route 66 just south of Joilet and driving Historical Route 66 all the way to least Pontiac. In Arizona Seligman - Historic Route 66 General Store - basically a souvenir stand but its still cool. There are other gift shops in town worth checking out. Hackberry - Hackberry General Store. A red Corvette, old gas pumps, signs, etc. Lots of old cars to look at out back too. Nice souvenir shop. This is a must stop for any car guy. Kingman - mention in the song "Get Your Kicks on Route 66". - Locomotive Park - steam powered trains and train memorabilia - Route 66 Museum - across the street for Locomotive Park Cool Springs AZ - Cool Springs Station - looks like something out of the "Cars" movies Careful driving and some slow speeds from Cool Springs into Oatman - this is a mountain pass and the road is narrow in places. You might even see a wrecked and rotting car corpses in one of the ravines. Oatman AZ - Careful driving though Oatman - there are wild burros running around. These burros are descendants from the burros that gold miners set free after the mines closed. - Feed the burros - While the burros are wild, they have little fear of man since the townsfolk and tourists alike feed them. Several places sell burro feed and they should come up to you if they see you have it. - Check out the old western wear and memorabilia in the various tourist shops in town. Now I haven't been to Amarillo Texas yet but - Cadillac Ranch - Route 66-Sixth Street Historic District Oklahoma Route 66 - Lucille's Gas Station - Hydro, OK - POPS - Acadia, OK - Famous "Blue Whale" - Catoosa OK - Will Rogers Museum - Claremore OK - Optimus Prime (Transformers) statue - Stillwater OK - Oklahoma City - Check out the state capital complex - complete with working oil rigs on the property!

  4. Got a text update from Joe last night. The axles are now in - it was an ID-10-T error. Something about a small retainer that has to goes inside the new disc caliper brackets..... I've been promised pictures.
  5. Google's self-driving car subsidiary Waymo said Tuesday that it will build its self-driving cars in the Motor City. The autonomous car firm said in a new blog post it chose Detroit for its "strong talent base," called the area the "heart of the American automotive industry," and said that it would provide jobs in an area affected by recent...View the full article

  7. I moved your post to our Intro forum as it is better fit here .
  8. Hi I'm fatcat1966. I'm an old fool on a mission. While rebuilding the engine on my 1966 Catalina convertible I had an idea that as I am turning 66 in the summer that I want to take my 66 down Rte 66 when I'm 66........ Thinking of late summer early fall to beat the heat. Rte 66 (the mother road) runs from Chicago to L.A. Anyone familiar with it please give me suggestions where to stop what to see etc. Also can I extend an invitation to other dreamers/fools/vagabonds who might like to join in in any part of it?
  9. More crossovers on the street mean that some can take a more direct road to consumers. The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe now aims straighter for comfort, while the 2019 Honda Passport heads straight to the mountains. We’ll call it addition by subtraction. In the case of the Passport, never burdened with a third row thanks to the bigger Pilot...View the full article

This was the first year for metal spoke rims. Because of how far gone this car is from original we are doing a restomod on it. Updating drive line so I can reliably be driven. We currently have a 350 crate engine in it with turbo 350 trans and S10 limited slip disc brake rearend. Working on new leaf springs, new gas tank, radiator and drive shaft right now.

  11. Nothing today. However, before the advent of cameras in cell phones, were all cops issued cameras as standard patrol equipment - let alone the now popular body cams? I was surprised to see this case originated out of Michigan.
  12. Go back and review his guitars and amps thread from several years ago. I think he had some stories there.
  13. Ford Motor Company will invest $500 million into Rivian in exchange for use of the startup's electric-car underpinnings, the two companies said Wednesday. Just what Ford would build on Rivian's advanced truck-like electric-vehicle architecture is unclear. Ford has said that it plans to build an electric version of its F-150 pickup truck and an...View the full article
  14. At an event to promote his company's autonomous technology, Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Monday said that a fleet of self-driving taxis will be on the road as early as next year. The New York Times reported on Musk's comments following the presentation. Musk said the self-driving "robo taxis" will be ready by the end of 2020 thanks to a new Tesla-made...View the full article
  15. Yesterday
  16. That's awesome! Got hooked back on Alice's music again from following his guitarist, Nita (she's amazing in her own right) on Instagram. She's on a lot but when they're on tour it's awesome seeing everything going on. Love to hear more from GE. Should probably start this as a new topic
  17. When I read the article title, I immediately thought "what's to stop them taking a photo? It is 2019 after all."
  18. That would be a good question to put to GE. GE use to be a roadie for Alice in his misbegotten youth. Heck I think there is still some YouTube video of GE on stage with Alice a few years back when Alice performed in Charlotte.
  19. I'm sure Alice Cooper is overly tired of people doing this but definitely have to do this if I meet him. At any rate! Fantastic work, Last Indian!
  20. Amazing work Last Indian. This little thing definitely requires patience and skill. It takes a lot of practice to properly develop both.
  21. Pffttt....a V8? Holy soccer mom burnouts Batman! That would be awesome which means GM will never do it. Heck, clearly no one wanted the turbo-4 cylinder. So why start now and given them what they want?
  22. Tire chalking, the practice many cities and police departments use to measure the amount of time a car has been in a parking spot, was ruled unconstitutional on Monday. According to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, where Judge Bernice Bouie Donald wrote the unanimous verdict for the three-judge panel, tire chalking is a form of...View the full article
  23. Federal regulators have expanded an investigation into airbags that may not inflate in the event of a crash to include 12.3 million vehicles in the U.S. The NHTSA on Tuesday posted documents to its website stating that it will investigate airbag control units made by automotive supplier ZF-TRW. The airbag control units were fitted to certain 2010...View the full article
  24. Ok, finished product. The first picture is that of the rear deck lid emblem! This second picture is of the flat non-3D Indian head. This is attached to the under hood fuse block panels cover.
