  5. They canceled my daughters wedding on Mackinaw Island. Less than a week from this Saturday. Been a cluster of fighting non refundable parts of this whole mess. We are back on track for this Saturday with most everything in place. Was sent these to lighten a very dark mood I've been in.

  6. So sorry Kiwi. RIP Harry, I know you'll be missed. They are a huge part of the family. We have been on borrowed time with my Cocker Spaniel for awhile now. Cherish every moment.

  8. Sorry to hear that, bud! Rough losing any member of the family, even the non-human members. Haven't owned a dog myself but my fiancé and I are looking at getting one. Think I finally convinced here to get a corgi after hanging out with my sister's corgi for a bit.

  9. R.I.P little Harry. All dogs go to heaven Kiwi. I truly believe that. I am truly sorry for your loss mate. I know how crushing it can be at times. They touch our hearts and our soul. They are part of the family. I've had two gorgeous dogs in my life before, Trina (a collie) and Maizey (a chow chow) and I now have Molly, my almost 10-year old golden retriever. She may be a bed pig but I don't mind. I love it when she cuddles up to me in the mornings. .

  16. I'm just being proactive and apologising in advance, no particular reason - I'm always upsetting someone! Anyway, moving along, I had set myself up to purchase a set of 15 x 7 Rallye 2s, but wanted to measure for clearance prior to committing. I had a look under the car and they'll fit at the back but there's bugger all clearance between the steering knuckle and inside edge of the tyre at the front. So, it looks like I'll hold off for a set of 14 x 6s. They seem to be a bit rare (especially Down Under) so I may have to procure a set of brand new ones from Ames. Here's the thing: fullsize

Also have a friend (work with him) with a 62 Grand Prix with functioning factory AC..If all else fails....Might be very possible to take a really close look at it...and take photos or draw out a crude schematic....

  24. Your classic 5 spoke design looks good on almost anything. Don't get me started on deep dish stuff either. I like factory offset: once again, they pay car designers to create a cohesive design that includes the wheels. Think Impala or StingRay with Rallyes - just perfect. Fortunately, all sorts of humans are created differently, and that gives us the kaleidoscope of design ideas, colour choices and engineering deviations that keep life interesting in all respects: clothes, food, structures and vehicles amongst others. But...putting 19" deep dish wire wheels on a Corolla, well, I dunno. An

  25. Fitzy - there is such as thing as "taste" and sometimes I don't think the DUB crowd understands it. I respect it as a form of hot rodding and kustomizing but it ain't my thing at all. When I saw some guy driving a DUB'd Buick Grand National, the bad ass car of the 80s, he had gone way too far! I can respect "plus sizing" to a point, but it better be for a wheel design that's not available in a 14" or 15" wheel for me to do it. I am not a fan of small sidewall tires period either. I don't need to show off more bling in wheels and the skinniest tires known to mankind either. In fact wh

  26. I can say I've been in a helicopter only for remote heli-skiing in the Bugaboo Mountains near Panarama B.C. (eastern B.C.). It was quite the experience powder skiing in snow that was well over hip deep at times and just as likely to kill you since you are skiing in avalanche prone areas. These areas are not maintained and you must wear an avalanche transponder around your neck at all times - set to transmit. The guide is always in the lead and he is the person most like to trigger an avalanche. We're all trained on to switch our transmitters to receive and find someone buried in an avalanche.

  28. Hay, guys , i am doing a renovation at the beach and wanted to show you what i found to use in the new bathroom for the shower This is a electronic thermostatic mixer valve that does away with the shower mixer or taps you would usually have to run your shower. the module mounts in the ceiling and a data cable runs down in the wall too this control knob. you simply touch it to start and stop the flow, touch left or right to adjust the temp and scroll left or right to adjust the flow rate, its something new and felton asked me if i would trial one for them. https://ww

  29. JUSTA - there were remote control when we were kids. JUSTA not the battery driven kind. Dad would whack one of us up the side of the head with a slipper or newspaper, and say "Hey kid, change the channel to Channel 4. It's time for Flipper!". We'd get up and turn the channel to Channel 4 and rub the back of our heads on the way back to our seats. It worked!

  30. Been restoring my dads 1968 Firebird. He’s owned it since he was 16 bought it for $1000. Me my brother and my dad Stripped it all down to bare metal when me and my brother were in high school in 2007ish and then just the past couple years started in on it again. Just got it out of paint and getting ready to start putting it all together again. Still a lot of work to go but thought I’d share some pics of the journey up to now.

  36. Any help I can get I had to replace the heater core and the vacuum came off and now I don’t know how to put them back. I had a friend install the heater core and he didn’t hook the vacuum up correctly. The ac lines are working but winter is coming and my girl will need heat and me too. I think I ordered one from OPGI but I haven’t gotten it yet to find out if it shows the connections. Everything is hard to find for the 62. Thanks. If I got the right book I’ll let you know

  37. I am looking for something that shows where all of the vacuum lines go under the dash and under the hood for the heater and ac. This is a factory ac car. I want to replace all the lines. I’ve tried to find a book on the heat/ac for a 62 Grand Prix with no luck. I think that a 62 Catalina is the same, but I’m not sure. I hope someone out there can help me. Also is there an old Pontiac mechanic near Sacramento ca. Thanks.

  41. Hey Frosty, I KNEW my off the cuff comment about 20" wheels would ruffle feathers. There's just something odd looking about monster size see through rims with a licorice strap attached to it. My personal thoughts on wheel selection are that car designers spend a lot of time coming up with factory designs that match - that's why factory styled wheels just look right. They pay people to get it right. Admittedly, if customising is your thing, some 'tasteful' big wheels can look really good. Plonking the biggest outlandish rims you can find onto something that was never supposed to look like that-

  42. Thanks Bud. I took Ms Notallthere out on date night in it. Came out to a couple guys staring at it. I had to give it a little gas in the first two gears when leaving. Upped Hagerty to $30,000 for it.

  45. Our family grew up restoring and showing Firebirds, and this one is the third that we have owned. I think my parents have a special place in their heart for 1968's since that was the year they were married:) This Firebird was so original that when it was purchased about 15 years ago the rear color match seat belts were still bundled in their original plastic. I purchased the Pontiac Historical Society information kit on this car and loved reading about the $800+ in extras that were ordered... the push button AM radio cost as much as the Rally wheels!
