  • Steve Wood: Having the good fortune to live in a county with a small population, getting vaccinated is a pretty simple process.  The worse part was having to hang around for 15 minutes in case someone had a reaction to the shot.  No one did.

  • Steve Wood: Looks like Gov. Whitmer of Michigan falls into the category of "Super Spreader" to me.  Sneaked off to Florida a month ago and now look at the cases in Michigan!

  • Steve Wood: maybe it was an exhibition run?

  • nocooler: Reality hurts. My cousin has a 68 charger 383 auto. Was always bragging how powerful and "fast" it is. Pulls away from everything by 60mph. Ran 18.5 under 70mph at the track - I about pee'd my pants I laughed so hard.
    April 29 2021, 12:06:33 PM
  • Steve Wood: In 65, I had a new Plymouth Belvedere with a four speed and a 383.  It ran in the 15s.  Zero traction until it was in third gear.  There was not much in the way of tires in those days.  I ran Atlas Bucrons but they went up in smoke and I did not know you were supposed to feather it until it was rolling...litt le good that would do

  • nocooler: You know how a carburetor and a distributer work.

    April 29 2021, 04:22:30 PM
  • Steve Wood: and today, I pulled a distributor out of a 440 after marking the positions, then pulled the drive gear/oil pump out and spun the pump to prime it...and put it all back together with the timing in the same place as it was when it was disassemble... mopar has the gear on the pump drive and the distributor is gearless...the end of the distributor shaft has a tab on it that fits down into the gear drive...I think it is easier than the conventional way

  • Steve Wood: we are in about the third generation of non-car guys that have bought into Buicks.  They don't know enough to even start using a search engine.  Poor cars
    May 03 2021, 08:07:44 AM
