    Here are some photos I took while I was at Chrome and Ice Smokie Yunick's Daytona Polesetting race car. About 7 years ago I did a thread here on FP called Automotive Archaeology. It featured my buddy's '68 Chevy Impala. We did a frame on restoration. I was surprised to see his car in a vendor's booth. He had recently switch the car to fuel injection and an electric fan controlled B-Cool radiator. He said the whole set-up ran him $1350.00 out the door. When was the last time you saw a Stutz Bearcat - with a big block Chevy? How about a 1930 Marquette - Buick's Companion make..... A buddy of mine had a friend with a gorgeous cinnamon Mercury custom. Dual quad 389! One of two 1959 Dodge Coronet Ambulance/Hearses made for the US Air Force This custom Hudson Hornet was a feature build on four episodes the old Powerblock TV show "Search and Restore". That is the owner behind the car in the first photo. The car has a 440 with Indy cylinder heads. https://www.powernationtv.com/shows/search-and-restore

    Thanks so much; just wanted to say hello and introduce "Bonny." No, we didn't name her, she came to us that way. We will post mechanical details in the progression forum. Already a hit at the local cruise-ins and work. I took an entire day off to drive to work and give people rides for half the day. One co-worker even made a youtube vid: Disclaimer: Don't judge me for the music, he wanted 70's funk that was royalty free. I am neither a 70's cop action hero nor a porn star.

Rear end is an Eaton Detroit tru-trac with 4:10-1 gears from motive gears went through 6 trannys learning to not drive on the freeway with 4:10’s, so now this transmission has a monster rebuild kit along side a B&M shift kit Tires are Nitto NT555r 305/45r18 in the rear to offset the 4:10 gears & Nitto NT555G2 245/40r18 in the front

    Curtis, to expound on what Frosty said. For all the work it appears you will need to put in, I would suggest you replace everything you can with new good sheet metal. Whatever you can take apart at a seam, do so and spot weld. Any upset angle of new sheet metal you can include, do so. This would include the floor if need be. Your sheet metal rot is not from an antifreeze leak. Antifreeze corrosion when spilled or leaked, even when hot, corrodes very little. One of the highest corrosion rates of antifreeze on a metal is aluminum, but that is under a circulating coolant system. https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/466284.pdf this attachment is a unclassified document from Wright-Patterson Airforce base that studied the effects of ethylene glycol corrosion on materials for use in space as a heat transfer medium. I don’t know where your bird spent it’s life, but that corrosion is clearly from road salt or if it came from the south, in a red clay area.

    Are you sure it is a bearing..?? And not a bent or flat spotted wheel or something along those lines..Is there any unusual grinding or roaring noise when driving straight or rounding curves ETC....??

    Most likely you need to clean both the IAC & the MAF sensors, but in the case of the IAC you need to clean the bore that it goes into as well. Also you should, since you’re already there, clean the bore of the throttle body & throttle plate.

    So we have the first half of the modern transportation equation - e for electric. Just a bike not a true 4-wheeled vehicle. It certainly isn't autonomous yet. GM sold Vauxhall and Opel to Peugot PSA, just to turn around and sell E-bicycles in Europe, eh?

    For those keeping score at home, this was due to some security upgrades we needed to make and the chatbox app was not compatible with those upgrades. We'll get it back online once there is a fix. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Thanks guys. I finished my 47 Dodge 3 window last March. I'm pretty sure that the wife decided that she likes it when I'm in the garage and not the house so she went out and bought this. lol

    Agreed, so long as it is a Northstar from a FWD configuration vehicle and not from the XLR. I remember we had to change the bellhousing on the Northstar to match up with the 4L60/4L80-E transmission bolt pattern when I was still at Powertrain, in order for us to put the Northstar/SC Northstar in the XLR.

    Well I agree with the original article commenter - it looks like an obnoxious pair of binoculars. Almost cartoon characterish. Hoonigans however is the group that makes the Gymkhana videos with Ken Bloch behind the wheel of most of the outrageous drifting videos on the planet. So I would expect them to know there way around hi-performance engines.

    PRESTON, Welcome aboard, If I'm understanding your question is referring to mount #4, but I'm not sure about the PLUG you mention? If it is #4 and you can't access it from under car you may need to carefully cut floor above the mount so it can be cut out/off. If you post a picture of the mount area we may be able to better assist you. Cheers

    Hooker Super Competition headers with a Ti Tech coating or ceramic coating. You can get a silver, close to chrome finish that will look good for quite some time before turning chalky or showing signs of rust and good for @1500 degrees or get a darker charcoal metallic content finish that withstands higher heat temps @2500 degrees and have them look good and last near about forever. https://axleaddict.com/auto-repair/5-Top-Reasons-to-Ceramic-Coat-your-Exhaust-Headers-and-Turbo-Parts https://www.jet-hot.com/articles/2018/6/29/5-important-reasons-you-should-ceramic-coat-your-exhaust-headers-and-turbo-parts

    Could very well be a wheel bearing...As far as low traction light I agree with Frosty and Last Indian..one of the wheel speed sensors..Unless there is something obvious you will have to hit it with a scanner to tell which wheel it is...

    Put the car up in the air and put her in drive lol. Funny thing is one tire spun and other didnt. It cool to see I differential in action. ( wish it was limited slip) . But to the point found the bearing. It wobbles. Not side to side but rather up and down. How you all figure that is?

    You aren't thinking about the Zinger mini cars are you? These were cool at indoor auto shows when I was a kid. They recently came back to the Detroit Autorama a few years ago.

    I will say that I am truly impressed at the wood work on this vehicle. A true woody through and through. It's got a flathead Ford V8, those are cool but can be a pain at times to maintain. I just not sure if I can tolerate all the Pledge fumes it would take to keep it clean. Also you can't leave this car outside, unattended for very long. Woodpeckers! https://thumb.craigslist.org/cto/d/oak-wood-car-and-enclosed/6756674623.html

    This one's for you Frosty. I can't get back there until Thursday to get the headliner and other stuff... (I apologize in advance if you saw these in my gallery). I am about to put her away into storage, but am totally frustrated with this dying issue after warm, along with the fuel in the oil... Gonna try and get those figured out before I pack her away.
