Wow. I know he built in on a Ram platform, but still. That's basically doing it from scratch. A tremendous amount of work. I'd love to know how many hours are in that.

This is what I want in a car...

It's like if Grandma designed the Corvette.

Not bad.

Looks awfully neat for a rage/revenge action?

I'm at a loss for words. And THAT is a mighty rare event!

Might be cool at a truck show, as an oddity.

You're a Chevy guy, so you can forgiven for not recognizing a field repair for a bucking....


(in the shop they would have used PBRs)

Some crazy Aussies decided to put this land speed record attempt truck together for shits and giggles.
Between what they had laying around, and donated by suppliers, then only spent $10,000.
Wait'll next year. :haha:

Where's the roo bar?

I'm not asking about the pub, BTW.

xoxoxoBruce 03-29-2018 10:57 AM

They clear the course of roos before every run.

Gravdigr 03-29-2018 05:54 PM

That's not a grille in the front.

It's a roo strainer.

Damn I hope that post didn't piss someone off. It'd prolly be a miracle, though...

BigV 03-30-2018 02:18 PM

A roo ricer

Dude in Germany buys land in the mountains and in clearing it find what's left of the VW 1951 type 2, Samba van.
Another dude buys it for several thousand bucks and is spending six figures (he hopes, but I know better) to restore it.
Why? Because it's the 2nd one made... and he's stupid. :rolleyes:

Gravdigr 04-05-2018 04:06 PM

Isn't that more than one van?

I think it's two, or maybe even three.

Gravdigr 04-05-2018 05:52 PM

VW buybacks.

Be sure to zoom in.

xoxoxoBruce 04-05-2018 11:40 PM

And that's just one lot. :facepalm:

Yup, what a waste. But I got $3,300.00 more than I paid for my diesel VW.

Old truck...

glatt 04-12-2018 08:18 AM

That's a lot of miles. Must live out in the country. I think it was the 80s that we first saw digital odometers in some cars. So lets say it's 30 years old. That's still 36K miles a year. Maybe it's 40 years and 27K miles per year.

xoxoxoBruce 04-12-2018 09:57 AM

36K a year is nothing for a truck.

Clodfobble 04-12-2018 10:29 AM

When you live an hour from the grocery store, the miles rack up quick. I drive 25K a year, and that's just with normal around-town commuting plus 2-3 trips a month to Houston and back.

3 million on an old Volvo

Gravdigr 04-12-2018 03:54 PM

I put 97,800 miles on my little pick up in two years.

glatt 04-12-2018 04:16 PM

You guys must have sore butts from sitting in those cars so much.

Gravdigr 04-12-2018 04:27 PM

I've done 1,000 miles in less than 24 hours (on a motorsickle) a few times.

Gravdigr 04-12-2018 04:30 PM

In a car/truck several times.

glatt 04-13-2018 09:28 AM

I did a one day drive from Potomac MD to West Palm Beach Florida one spring break. That's 1,000 almost exactly. It sucked. Never again. And then had to come back. Stupid college kids.

Gravdigr 04-14-2018 05:00 PM

Traffic I don't care for, of course, but, I've never really minded driving.

I don't passenger well at all.

BigV 04-15-2018 02:09 PM

so, I can't get to just the bare video--sorry!

But I wholeheartedly recommend clicking through to the story at Ars Technica where they've pitted a professional driver on the drift car racing circuit against a ... semi-pro? video gamer... get this... in real Mustangs, on real dirt roads, with all the windows blacked out. The driver is watching a small video screen inside the car, showing the live feed from a camera bolted to a mast/boom on the back of the car. They race head to head on the same track. Madness!

Here's the same story from the sponsor, Castrol. Again, can't get the vid from youtube, sorry.

The racism, not you at all...

Pamela 04-20-2018 01:02 AM

Pfft! Sissies. I clock up 5000 miles a WEEK! EVERY week.

My driver ed class had 4 door chevys. :(

BigV 04-22-2018 09:55 PM

Makes me want to go back to school!

Gravdigr 04-25-2018 03:04 PM

Mine had a 4-door Topaz.

Yeah, we were the envy of, well, nobody really.

Gravdigr 04-25-2018 03:06 PM

Damn if the guy on the right doesn't look like the warden from Shawshank.

xoxoxoBruce 04-25-2018 03:14 PM

Sure, what do you think he spent all the money he stole on.

Gravdigr 04-25-2018 03:16 PM

The warden's money was spent in Z-town by Andy Dufresne.;)

Brake light switches are sensitive to adjustment and hard to get to so expensive to get replaced. Beat the system...
