  1. What? No pictures from the Charlotte Auto Fair?
  2. When I had my Seadoo waverunners, it was Mobil 1.
  3. That's probably it. It's been 25-30 years since I was there. I remember the hotel we stayed at was brand new. There were cornfields across the street, part of which had been cut down and used cars had been placed on it. I think it was somewhere on the Lincoln Highway but I'm not 100% certain.
  4. What weight oil is the Yamalube you use?
  5. http://www.tachrev.com/GrandAm1973Nascar.htm The long forgotten Grand Am NASCAR race car. No one is sure where this car ended up. Some rumors have it that it was sold and race dirt track in either Oregon or Washington state. It's most likely long gone now.
  6. I wish more people understood that very thing Ringo. Perhaps this hobby would be a little more affordable and common sense would prevail. My gawd, what am I saying?
  7. How about a Porsche 911 limo with no engine or transmission? https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/cto/d/1989-porsche-exprs029-limo-21ft-stretch/6835806358.html 1989 Porsche 911/930 Limo 21 Stretch (this car serviced San Francisco’s airports for many good years, notice preserved business card and airport clearance stickers displayed in windshield shown in pics) "Project" Needs Full Restoration, No Engine/Trans, All Wiring Is Intact, 930 Turbo Wide Body Slant Nose "All Steel Body" Built in the 90's (Invested over 100k, a part of automotive history will not ever be reproduced in this life time “One-of -a-kind” be the proud owner and enjoy not only a cool car but smiles/attention that this car will bring future generations) 12,500 Cash or 20k Trade Option.
  8. After leaving the ad business and Pontiac, Jim owned his own Chevrolet dealership for a few years in Wisconsin. It's detailed in his book... Oh boy the way - there's the late Eric White's GTO on the cover. Damn I still miss Eric.
  9. Time to buy a used 1991 Syclone instead?
  10. I'm trying to figure out what is so magical about 7-18-19. Is that some significant date in Corvette history? Or have they planned some sort of media extravaganza for that date? I'm sure the latter is true.
  11. Cars owned by the Godfather of the GTO, Jim Wangers, are going up for auction at Mecum in Indianapolis May 14-19, 2019 https://journal.classiccars.com/2019/04/16/pontiac-adman-jim-wangers-mecum-auction/
  12. Now they are flaunting it in New York! Why wait at this point? https://www.freep.com/picture-gallery/money/cars/general-motors/2019/04/12/mid-engine-chevrolet-corvette-revealed-new-york-city/3446442002/
  13. Yup pretty much. My 2018 Chevy Colorado LT MSRP'd around $42k. It had almost 10k miles on it so it was being sold for $32k at my bro-in-law's dealership, plus my trade-in on Black Beauty ('08 GMC Envoy Denali with 204k miles) was worth another $4k off. So I got into it for around $28k. So $42k + $40k for the Syclone package - yeah $80k is probably about right. Mind you, mine is a crew cab - the article shows an extended cab, that might knock a few bucks off.
  14. SO do you plan to do with this '70 Goat?
  15. Looks like there will be a limited production of a GMC Syclone, based on the GMC Canyon. I'd like to see it become as successful and desirable as its predecessor. https://www.autoblog.com/2019/04/16/2019-gmc-syclone-pickup-truck-specialty-vehicle-engineering/#slide-7561851
  16. Kudos to you. Of course, you now run the risk of your dad swatting you over the head and saying "Smart ass kid". Still - it's worth it.
  17. Dixon Illinois - childhood home of Ronald Reagan Dixon Illinois? Does it still have the 4-way stop in the middle of town? I was best man in a buddy's wedding in Dixon Illinois.
  18. My opinion would be to flush the system, for two reasons: 1. It's a 2003 GA, I doubt previous owners have ever flushed it, so now is a good time to clean it out and start with fresh power steering fluid, especially with a new rack. Why contaminate it with junk to begin with? 2. Flushing and adding new fluid will allow you to bleed the system and get rid of any trapped air that the either new rack or power steering hoses may have in them.
  19. I'm not so sure this is a typo..... 1978 Pontiac grand lemons - $3500 https://houston.craigslist.org/cto/d/houston-1978-pontiac-grand-lemons/6852197579.html 1978 Pontiac very rare car.. I’ve had it for about 4 years and it’s just collecting dust.. and getting rusted I rated sell it then to see it go to waste. It has a 454 big block gm engine, with a 350 transmission. Transmission has been fixed and rebuilt for racing. This thing will leave skit mark all over the road. 3500 obo no trades clean and original title. What's a skit mark?
  20. SPRINT 6 - as always - your photos are fantastic. I see there were lots of flatheads, hot rods and lead sleds. Talk about being in heaven!!!! Still I have to ask about one car that really, really caught my eye. This looks like a 1939 Graham Paige pickup truck made for the military. However, I am not aware that Graham Paige made a pickup this late into the 1930s or early 1940s. SO is this a real G P or is it a phantom pickup? It's sharp and unique regardless.
  21. I finally had a couple of minutes on Saturday, while the weather was nice, to go get my dad's Buick Roadmaster Limited washed and topped off with gas. I inherited this land yacht from my dad last year after he passed away. It has the LT-1 Corvette motor in it. So it gets up and moves. It had not been washed in a quite some time and it needed gas. I managed to get it to a car wash and top it off with gas before putting in back into storage and covering for awhile. It was nice to get out and float around in this baby. It was the last new car my parents ever bought. It has around 127,000 miles on it. The interior needs work. I need to find some interior trim for it. I need one new hub cap because the Buick emblem is missing. I need to clean and detail the interior and the engine bay. I have a new air filter, spark plug wires, and plugs for it. There is some surface rust in the rear wheel wells that needs to be addressed.
