I've had a couple people tell me that.

Lots of problems with the infotainment systems, primarily phones not connecting and GPS way off base.

This is what happens when two boys steal a truck and make it three blocks. You ought to see the other five vehicles and two mailboxes. They certainly should have known better, after all they are both six years old now.

Those 6 year old kids were just testing the crumple zone, for a science fair project.

The Trans Am series was great racing, not too fast to go fender to fender in the straights, and interesting in the twisty parts.

I really liked the Lime Rock pics.

This last post was also very interesting.

Ever wonder where the term "Hot Rod" came from?

Beest 04-19-2016 11:02 PM

Babbitt would have been the bearing material that melted out, the connecting rods would probably have been cast iron ( that's a guess though).
My employers original product, from which it still get's it's name and logo, was an installable bearing rather than cast in place.

Yes, babbitt bearing material cast in the rod end and bored to .0015" to .002" clearance. The lubrication was splash oiling, meaning the crankshaft would splash the rod end in the crankcase on each revolution. However as the speed of the engine picked up it was less and less effective, as the rod end not only spent less time in the oil, it beat the oil into a froth.
I think my Uncle said he was recasting the babbitt every 1500 miles in his T.

The bearing inserts from your outfit, plus pressure oiling systems on later motors was a god send. They could be run for thousands of miles between overhauls if you changed the oil every thousand miles and didn't beat it. When my uncles drove from MA to Alaska in 1949 they had to stop and change the oil five times. We have it pretty easy today.

"Illegal assembly"? Bullshit, unconstitutional.
Impounded vehicles? For speeding? For illegal assembly?

Many Rolls Royce of sales were chassis to be custom bodied, all of the US built Rolls were that way. Of course some of the custom bodies were more elegant than others. ;)
