Tearing up the back 40...

Gravdigr 11-13-2018 09:45 PM

Quiet, too, I bet.

xoxoxoBruce 11-13-2018 10:00 PM

I doubt it, the headers come straight out each side, no mufflers at all.

Gravdigr 11-14-2018 02:40 PM

'Swhat I were getting at.

What's that, about a ten inch collector?

Yep, real quiet.

How about this 2005 Ford GT?

Attachment 65601

Never owned.

Six (6) miles.

No, I said six.

Original sticker read $149,995.

Current asking price is $449,900. But, w/only 20% down, you can drive this little gem to Piggly Wiggly every damn week for only $4309 per month

Saw this old Hendrickson in the corn field the other day. Had a stubby (short) grain trailer behind it.

Attachment 65637

Turns out it's a locally famous truck. Says 'Dino' on the door. Everybody I mentioned it to said "Ol' man Smith's had that truck for a hunderd years, remember when his boy hooked it up to the sled at the tractor pull, made a full pull, and just kept going?"

People don't have fun anymore.

Yes, this is what you have to do to replace the clutch disc. :facepalm:
You wouldn't believe what's involved with changing a timing belt or other front of the engine pieces on high end Mercs, BMWs, and Audis.

This is not far off, then.

xoxoxoBruce 12-02-2018 11:11 PM

That's accurate, just have to be prepared to pay 15 or 20 grand to have the clutch replaced. :eek:

El Catalina, they built one but there was no market, the El Camino and Ranchero didn't sell enough to jump into that market.

Gravdigr 12-08-2018 02:58 PM

I mighta bought one of those. I'm a Pontiac guy.

Gravdigr 12-08-2018 03:04 PM

You knew ya could get a '67-'77 Bronco restored for crazy money. But, didja know ya could buy a brand new '67-'77 Bronco, RFN? For stupid money.

New sheet metal. New frame. New, modern engine/trans.

Built by Gateway Broncos.

Under license by Ford Motor Company.

xoxoxoBruce 12-09-2018 12:33 AM

All that work and all that money to end up with a Ford. tsk tsk :lol:

A lot of people have told me they wish they could buy a 4 wheel drive the size of the old Broncos because the newer ones are too wide to fit between trees.

Gravdigr 12-09-2018 06:22 AM

I actually kinda like the old Bronco, but not 120k's worth.:headshake

I'd give $120k for this Saleen S7:

Attachment 65806

Garage queen Saleen S7 has done only 240 miles in 13 years!

They're a bit thick in the rear, but, damn if that ain't a beautiful automobile.

0 - 60...2.8 seconds

0 - 100...5.7 seconds

0 - 200...27 seconds

Top speed...248mph

I guess it'll do.:drool:

Going to auction, with no reserve.

xoxoxoBruce 12-11-2018 11:26 AM

The $120,000 is OK, but it would cost a fortune for a full time guy to pull me up and out of the damn thing. :haha:

Gravdigr 12-11-2018 03:08 PM

My best friend's mother kept her late husband's dually Chevy, because it was so easy to get out of. She'd had both hips replaced and didn't do the rehab, so she was worse off than before, but she could climb into the thing pretty well, with the running boards and whatnot. Getting out was as simple as sliding out and falling to her feet.

Your, and my, left hand would always be dirty from putting it down to get up out of that car.:lol2:

Gravdigr 12-11-2018 03:10 PM

Then again, I could live in that car.:love:

Never mind that.

This car is pictured at the link and not mentioned anywhere in the piece:

Pretty rad looking piece of kit, no?

Please to notice that there is no provision for a driver.:eek:

And that it says Roborace on the spoiler/splitter.

Fully autonomous racing at ~200 mph. What could go wrong?

Steve McQueen’s 1979 Pontiac Trans Am pulled from Illinois barn

Attachment 65865

From Steve McQueen's last movie The Hunter:

McQueen played real-life bounty hunter Ralph 'Papa' Thorson. McQueen stood ~5'9" weighed what, maybe 175 lbs, Thorson was 6'2" 310 lbs.


...there is a "different Papa than the modern day bounty hunter. Papa is also "a church bishop; Master bridge champion; renowned astrologer; criminology alumnus of the University of California, Berkeley; child nutritionist, aficionado of classical music."
~Christopher Keane author of the biography the movie was based on

Gravdigr 12-20-2018 10:22 AM

This makes me drool, and weep. This guy has more drool-worthy cars than I've seen in one place. Over a million dollars' worth of 59 Cadillacs. Corvettes, including a 9 mile 1980 model. Superbirds, prolly over a million dollars' worth. Chrysler 300s. A Chrysler Airflow. Jaguars. Beautiful fucking Jaguars. Road Runners. Daytonas. Superbirds. A Dan Gurney Special Torino.

All out in the country, talking BFE here. In barn, after barn, after barn...An old man and his dad amassed these cars. He bought/traded for what he thought was cool, not because he thought they would increase in value. Almost all of them increased in value. Most are either restored or in as new condition.

I think they owned a dealership at one time.

So much better bigger.

If you like cars, bring a napkin.:drool:

Was Leno funny enough to make all that money?

xoxoxoBruce 12-23-2018 12:54 AM

Funny enough, plus frugal. While he was making $40 million a year hosting the Tonight Show, he didn't touch that money but did comedy clubs and shows for money to live on. I read his collection was worth $50 million but it must cost him at least a million a year to support the facility and employees to maintain them. It's good to be the king.

Gravdigr 12-23-2018 11:28 AM

I was watching him ride a then new Triumph Bonneville.

His chin sticks out from beneath a full face helmet.:lol2:

That's funny.

I never found the guy laugh out loud funny. Humorous, but not funny.

Would you give $5000 for an 86 Plymouth Reliant Wagon?

What if I told you it was turbo-charged?

What if I told you it was one of maybe 60 ever made?

For the military?

And was never available to the general public?

No wood grain = 1 of 1

Golden Bronze Metallic paint = 1 of 3

Yeah, no, me neither.:lol2:

I'd take it too. If it has sunroof. Or the seat is directly on the floor pan. Or comes with a voucher for a trip in a time machine to 1966 when I was able to fit in that squashed cabin.

Pretty though.
