Is that image flipped?

xoxoxoBruce 10-12-2018 02:54 AM

No, if it was flipped the numbers would be backward.

Clodfobble 10-12-2018 06:52 AM

The top image looks flipped because it is the backside of the dash panel--supposedly this guy removed the whole thing and put those bits of paper behind the cutouts before closing it up again.

They say "Post-it notes" but I think they mean Post-it tape flags.

edit: and even if they don't mean that, I think the tape flags would work better. More vibrant.

Yes, can't show the backside without flipping it over or up.

Unfortunately, the colored part of the tape flag isn't sticky.

These were cool but didn't happen...

They are slick looking.. I can see the Corvair in the first two, but the bottom two... some kind of Pontiac, from the split grille and the badge/emblem on the left rear fender in the bottom image. But what Pontiac?

xoxoxoBruce 10-14-2018 02:12 AM

Pontiac LeMans.

captainhook455 10-14-2018 09:55 AM

Oh a Corvair. My grandfather had one in Miami, FL. He carried 3 fan belts. He would be driving and it would flip off somewhere and he would stop and put on a new one.

We lived in New Orleans and met him in Belmont where the Perry's hail from. Everything was sweet until we got to the blue ridge. That little car couldn't make it up the hills. They removed their luggage and put it in my father's Buick. The little car still couldn't make it. My granddaddy was a GM man, but when he got back to Miami he traded it in for a Tbird.

If ya can keep wheels on it. No, not tires, wheels.

In 40,000 miles wheels were bent or cracked ten (10!:3_eyes:) times.

Quote:

In all, we spent $4098 on wheel repair and replacement-seven repairs and three replacements, for an average failure rate of once every 4000 miles.

The pattern in the boot is very swastika esque.

Love the shape.... But weasel leather? Is that a thing? I bet it's really human skin. Crazy Oligarchs.

It's crazy that these super-rich, predatory business overlords with unethical influence over the government and legal system have so mush cash piled up that they waste it on these unnecessarily ostentatious displays of wealth!

All these new(er) cars w/the high belt line and short side windows remind me of the cars from Dick Tracy. Yer 300s, and yer Magnums, especially.

Flint 10-17-2018 03:15 PM

high belt line !!

like men's suits in the 40s

Yes, it's the beltline, Chrysler raised it to make the side windows shorter. According to their research, that way the occupants feel more secure without lowering the roofline.

Or maybe people like it because they can be bigger assholes if they think nobody can see them.:eyebrow:

Anyway, Rolls-Royce hood lady.

Gravdigr 10-18-2018 09:18 AM

I believe some artistic liberties were taken there...

Or, the sculptor was blind.

I figured it had something to do with side airbags, door airbags, safety curtains, etc. Smaller hole to be thrown through in a crash...

That made me remember this album by Ted Nugent, Nugent.

Attachment 65231

The inner sleeve says at the bottom "This record is manufactured with 100% reprocessed back-stage nookie hide." Or words to that effect.

The other side says "For maximum effect, this record should be played loud, and often." Or words to that effect.

You may have missed this fine print :

Diaphone Jim 10-19-2018 11:58 AM

"$381 in 1927 equals $5,306.53 in 2018. I'll still take a dozen"

But you can pay $30,000 or more for a new Ford truck.

With rubber floor mats and radio and A/C delete, maybe...:neutral:

A Ford King Ranch is closer to $100,000.

They came pretty close on the production version...

Would you buy this for $12,000? It is all original and runs like a bat outta hell.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...2fc08089f2.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...8991fb87e7.jpg

$12,000?:eyebrow:

Something's up with that car, or it's in pretty rough condition...

The VIN # alone ought to be worth close to that.

Why do airbag's get the apostrophe but electric windows don't?

Plus one for attention to detail

glatt 10-28-2018 10:33 AM

He's wrong about the electronic injection though.

Some of the bells and whistles on newer cars make them more reliable.

My dad was always talking about "the points" being the problem when our 70's era VW bus wouldn't start. He had this thickness guage that he was regularly using to adjust them. Kept the guage handy in the ashtray up front. Modern ignition systems and fuel injection are far superior to points and carburetors and make a car exponentially more reliable.

xoxoxoBruce 10-28-2018 12:05 PM

Yes more reliable with less maintenance, but when it doesn't work you need some very expensive diagnostic equipment to find out which of the eleventeen expensive computers is at fault.

It is thick as bondo. They build it up, carve it, then spray the shiny coat over it.

Hurricane Florence has forced many sales because people need fast cash. It is a buyers market.

captainhook455 11-02-2018 11:58 AM

How about this one. Its a 90 something I forget. A GMC Sonoma. Clean as a pin inside. Engine is clear for its age. 165k power everything has 3 doors. Anyway some that know say $4200 is good price others say 2500. It could use a Earl Shrine paint job, but if kept clean it wouldn't be noticeable. Why did have to be black. Red would be much better.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...eb25d5d2a0.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...694f96a60e.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...98004e97bb.jpg

I've seen the other generation F-bodies with this treatment, but, I've never seen this one. A 85 T-top, 5 liter, 5-speed, Kammback Firebird.

I kinda like it. I think the side view is the best shot.
