  1. Hey everyone: Seems the Ohio winters have caught up with the 2 rear-most hangars on my car..... Need both left and right but they have been declared Obsolete by the blue oval in the sky. This is for the metal two hole brackets that the rubber donut mounts to. Maybe have some I could purchase or maybe part numbers I can scour the web for ? Thanks ! /ZZZ
  2. Or not. Love the tire marks on the door. Maybe a street death machine is better... Tunnel ram buggy... seat belts won't help. Ow ! Show was yesterday in Cleveland. /ZZZ
  3. Not many left from the 'original group' out at Summit a couple times a year. Call me when the Shelby comes due, ahem. Your western shop is now available in Marshall, Texas.... Yep, gas station from the '30s. Yow. /ZZZ
  4. It's 115 degrees out and I went over to watch the Padres & Mariners rookie league teams scrimmage 2 weeks ago in Phoenix. Sittin' out in the parkin' lot was : Takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin' ! /ZZZ
  5. Thanks guys, I've got the aforementioned clutch kit (LuK), just the flywheel and bolts are needed.. I think I'll skip the bleed now cause it really does need a clutch & T/O, we'll bleed it when its in. Probably best to get the LuK flywheel to mate with the LuK clutch assy, eh ? Is it the lightened one ? (LFW133). /ZZZ
  6. Hey all : Guess it's time to renew the original stock clutch in my buggy... at 171K. No slip but the judder is annoying and could hurt our glass trans/diffs. So what is the correct Sachs number to replace the lightened one currently in place ? Choices here Thanks all, keep up the good work. /ZZZ
  7. Spotted a couple days ago in Kendallville, IN. No color keyed bumpers but has body side moldings.... could it be a scooter model ? Amazing wheezer still rollin' on. /ZZZ
  8. No Edit button. Reverse the plant numbers..... I'm at CEP2. CEP1 is the video debutante. /ZZZ
  9. Hey Group, I'm doing some contract work over at Ford Engine Plant 1 in Brook Park (Cleveland) OH. So in the course of my daily duties, I see alot of 3.0's in various stages of undress. Hard to concentrate, ahem. So my question is this : Which applications get a plastic upper and which get an aluminum one ? Different markets, too ? All the short blocks look alike but the heads, intakes and inductions vary some. I bet Dom wants a box of TTY head bolts , eh ? Terry wants the old posters/pix on the plant walls of Jags and the actual fully dressed chrome Jag v6 in the lobby, yes ? Old plant, not a purty one like CEP2 out front they show on the news. Finally, I got to hear the soft jingle/tinkle sound of about 1000 rod caps lined up and marching forward together to their final machining on the cap line. Interesting. /ZZZ
  10. Stand up and be counted ! 99 SVT Black/Blue; 168K on it; all boringly, reliably, stock. Only put 6900 miles on it last year ! Bought with 14K miles 11 years ago.....Still pulls to redline with aplomb. /ZZZ
  11. Waaaahh ! Shudda done early '90's Corvette Black Rose ! /ZZZ
  12. Natural asp, hand built C5R 427 Mallett thru cats: Sighh, I can't get enough. Nice top end punch huh ? /ZZZ
  13. Ah, didn't know that. Sure aint warm weather testing there doing this week. Ahem. Avatar is my current fav old Westerns actor. Whatta look. /ZZZ
  14. This ripper: I'm in Surprise, AZ (near Phoenix) on business. Makes my wheezer rental 'Stang next to it seem paltry. 540 horse does that. Uh huh, that's a Michigan Manufacturer's tag on it. Looks like a racin' setup under there son. 2010 Shelby GT500. sighhhhh.
  15. Yeah, mine threw the codes. Dealership flashed the PCM, it supressed the CEL for awhile but came back. Installed the MIL's on both banks, no prob since. This stops the specific codes, not the MIL's overall function. This install is not gonna be done by the dealership, however ! /ZZZ
  16. Hey Damien: Yeah I got that factory HU in my '99 svt that was there when I bought the car in 99. 9 years later and 160K miles it is approaching the finish line (HU, not the car.). Am reception is poor at best, only the strongest stations in town during the day, Fm generally okay but presets are few and the scan function is too picky. CD wll play burned cd's but playback leans toward skippppppy more and more. Displays are okay, too. I put an amp and a Basslink in the trunk for it sound better but hey, only so much can be done... BTW, HU was never stolen ! (this was the main idea in the first place) /ZZZ
  17. Interesting work, nice job 99. BTW, My car is 2 later than yours. Bought in Michigan used in Sept '99. I wonder if the Vin # is close ? Anyway, welcome to the boards. /ZZZ
  18. Bravo & kudos to you both. It's just a formality, right ? Best always... /Richie.
  19. Aw, that sux for sure. Seems that you've learned an important life lesson. 'nuff said. When I was twenty, I did stupid things too. Some could have resulted in a closed casket for me (and others). Fortunately we're both around to reflect on it. Let's keep it that way, eh ? On a lighter note, my early years driving on bias ply tires put me on the steep part of the learning curve ! "yess sir ossifer, thems special tires " /ZZZ
  20. We were MOST fortunate to meet the gal who owns that house & pond in the pix. Too bad the 9 iron won't reach her front yard. FORE !! /ZZZ
  21. OK. Summit any time. 132 touring miles is kinda far fer me, maybe 1/2 that. NO BUGGY DODGING. -dom: I have a bunch of small computer parts shipping boxes (memory size up to pwr supply/system board size) that I am happy to bring down for you, if you see a need for them. Post here or PM; if someone else wants 'em, cool. FREE.
  22. Yeah, Mazda. But I was looking for a 'pure play'.... stratus, mkz maybe something..... Nada. sighhhhhh. /ZZZ
  23. Been looking for awhile as an exercise.... few around on the domestic front. Lots of import marque, seems as though Detroit et al is very hesitant to warranty a 4d, 6cyl stick. Found: 08 Caddy CTS... score one for the General. 08 Jeep Liberty... not a sedan but is 4 doh. Is this IT ? Better hang onto th' csvt. /ZZZ
