Just what, not why:

Attachment 66752

At least one of those inclinometers is incorrect.

ETA: Maybe because the suspension lets the bus lean farther than the rack tilts?

xoxoxoBruce 03-16-2019 02:02 AM

Exactly, the top of the bus is leaning more than the bottom ramp.

I guess my riding mower is more stable than it feels sometimes.

xoxoxoBruce 03-16-2019 01:02 PM

Don't bet on it Jim, riding mowers like to lull you into a sense of security then flip you like a coin. ;)

Gravdigr 03-16-2019 01:54 PM

A guy got killed by his mower here a year or two ago.

He leaned over to pick up a piece of paper in the yard, mower went over, dude broke his neck.

Some people shouldn't be allowed out of their yard. :facepalm:

Gravdigr 03-17-2019 06:45 AM

The limos are just ridiculous.

That second pic is sacrilege.

The red limo is lame but that white limo is SO many kinds of stupid. How the hell do you make a turn in that monstrosity?

A what!?...

Gravdigr 03-22-2019 11:40 AM

That was one well-massaged flattie to even approach stock 396 numbers...

I know flatties can be made to go, but 3.5 to 60 in a 3000 pound car...well-massaged.

Gravdigr 03-22-2019 11:41 AM

I bought a theft-recovery one time. 84 S-10 Blazer.

The same-o, same-o white car profiles remind me of the Sunday comic features such as "which of the pictures is slightly different."
I still play those, BTW.

Why not, they're fun, you can do them as fast or slow as you want, and they take your mind off the zombies in the streets. :thumb:

I've been driving my current car since April of last year and I still have a bitch of a time finding it in the parking lot. The old one was red, this one is silver. :( I'm this close to paying for a custom paint job.

Just set off the alarm with the button on the remote and follow the sound.
Doesn't work well when several people are doing it. :haha:

A few years back, silverfish (no, spell check, silverish, not silverfish) Hondas were the most common call for locksmiths. They had to take care of keys broken off in someone else's door.

glatt 03-26-2019 12:04 PM

We have one of those silver Hondas. I don't care for the silver, but it hides dirt well.

Clodfobble 03-26-2019 06:05 PM

Last summer I walked up, opened the door and fully sat inside someone else's car.

It was unlocked because there was a teenage girl sitting in the back seat. Her pointed "Umm..." was the first inkling I had that something was wrong.

Gravdigr 03-27-2019 12:48 PM

Popdigr and I did that at a pawn shop once. Opened the unlocked door and we both were inside the 2-door Mitsubishi Isuzu Trooper II. It wasn't until we started to shut the doors, and the door pulls weren't in the right place, that we realized our mistake. They were identical except...

Our Trooper was a four-door.

That two-door was a fairly rare bird, I know now...

Gravdigr 03-27-2019 03:11 PM

Just watched a Leno's Garage featuring the vehicle in post #2298 (above). The builder has been featured on the show before.


xoxoxoBruce 03-28-2019 12:29 AM

I've seen several videos on the bus/van/whatever you call it. It's a clever project but not good for robbing liquor stores. :lol:

Spoiler alert, they're probably still numbers.

This Day In Automotive History

On this day in 1927 the Sunbeam 1000 HP

Attachment 66984

broke the land speed record by going 203.79 mph at Daytona Beach, FL.

The 1st non-American car to make a record run at Daytona Beach, and the 1st car to surpass 200 mph.

200mph...1927.

Let that sink in for moment...:3_eyes:

Glinda 03-29-2019 01:34 PM

This crazy thing was parked outside the liquor store I frequent a few months ago. Bought a bottle, but it turned out that I liked the truck more than I liked the whiskey (I'm not much of a scotch drinker).

If you haven't eaten recently, get an eyeful of this, this--thing-- from Toyota. It is a Yaris pick-up that Toyota 'Shopped up. Thank God it ain't real, I'm not sure I could stand it in the real world.

Attachment 67093

Hyundai is getting into the li'l truck thing, too. I reckon this one is a living, breathing beast, although in concept vehicle form. They call it the Santa Cruz. Not the ugliest thing I've ever seen. I might could drive this one.

Wondering about the 'hard-top' designation...

Is that because there's no B-pillar? Is it cuz o' the sedan/coupe thing? No window frames?

The owners manual (online if you don't have one) tells you exactly where to place the jack. It's becoming more and more critical...

Diaphone Jim 04-10-2019 12:11 PM

Expensive screw up.
Do you suppose it was the owner or the "mechanic" who did that?
Or is it ultimately the manufacturer at fault?

xoxoxoBruce 04-10-2019 12:27 PM

Not the manufacturer, been a long time since you could jack on the rocker panels of any car, never on European cars that I know of. It appears to be a garage or tire dealer.
Looks like the damage is done so the guy is coming out with the wheel so they can get the jack out of there.
Cars not only have specific jacking spots there are designated spots to attach tie downs on a rollback or trailer, plus points to attach the winch to pull them onto a rollback/trailer.

Clodfobble 04-10-2019 10:25 PM

Wonder how long it held before collapsing?
Wonder if anyone had cause to be underneath the car while it was jacked up?
*shudder*

xoxoxoBruce 04-11-2019 12:03 AM

1 Attachment(s)
Nobody underneath, jacked up to take a wheel off, but good question. Did he think the damage is done so keep going, or did it collapse with in delayed reaction?

Maybe he was hoping it would melt...
