Ugly baby, but when the grow up they're still ugly but quit pleasant to use.

Gravdigr 02-10-2019 11:24 AM

I couldn't get close enough to get in one to find out.

And I drove a Yugo. And two different Scouts. And I currently drive a 25 yr old Grand Cherokee. I'm no stranger to ugly vehicles.

xoxoxoBruce 02-10-2019 07:58 PM

With an ugly car there's no strife, drive happy for the rest of your life.

Gravdigr 02-11-2019 11:18 AM

GC1 is giving up a U-joint, I think.

I sincerely hope it isn't something inside the rear-end.

Axle bearing wouldn't be too bad, but U-joints are easier.

It kinda clucks at low speed off-throttle, sorta like a front wheel drive when an axle bearing goes bad, but it sounds like it's coming from driver's side rear. Definitely the rear but the driver's-side-sound may be because that's the side I hang my head out while driving down the road. No tell-tale clanking going into gear, or on-and-off the gas.

An itty bitty Mazda...

Attachment 66394

And a 9 second Camaro...

Attachment 66395

Gravdigr 02-13-2019 09:02 AM

That Mazda is just ugly.

Also the worst angle for a pic of a Camaro. The Camaro is a pretty slick car, but from that angle it's as ugly as a used found-on-the-ground jelly bean.

Also, Firefox is telling me I'm spelling Camaro wrong.

Meanwhile in Sweden...

A question to which I am dying to know the answer...

Ok, so I read this article about a company, SVE, who, for a steep price, will convert your Tahoe or Suburban to 810 or 1000hp. Yeah, yeah, sure, sure. Fuck all that.

At the bottom of that article there is a video clip showing the 2020 Silverado on the assembly line. With the tailgate upside down. In more than one place on the line.

It's driving me mad. Why, why are the tailgates upside down?! Google ain't got a clue.

The following is NOT a video player.

Maybe upside down to get better paint coverage on the overhang where the handle mounts, or inside the hole itself. Just a guess.

His Ford Escort runs on water.

xoxoxoBruce 02-15-2019 01:47 AM

It's mostly bullshit, you can't run a car on water, but it could be used as a booster on big diesels to cut emissions and increase fuel mileage. One reason is the big diesels run near constant RPM, or at least a small range.

May be a traction bar?

What is that car? It reminds me of a Jaguar E-type, but it looks stubby.

Glinda 02-22-2019 11:44 AM

In addition to pet sitting, I also do house checks for people who are out of town for long periods of time. One of my regular clients has one of these in his garage:

They are both beautiful. I had a Dethomaso Pantera matchbox car and I freaking loved that thing. I wanted one too.

Glinda 02-22-2019 01:23 PM

Years ago, one of my pet sitting clients had one of these in the garage.

It might have been a kit. Still . . . noice!

With those headlights the trunk has to hinge at the front, I doubt it's closed all the way.

fargon 02-27-2019 08:28 AM

The trunk lid is hinged at the front. Nevermind, Sorry.

At least it'll make him wear his seatbelt. Yes him/his, girls are smarter than that.

Fucked-up Ol' Redneck Dumbass is more like it.

A Dodge? I thought it was a Ford.

I do like this homemade Ranchero though, looks like Britain.

fargon 03-03-2019 07:36 AM

That is a cool 'Stang.

Gravdigr 03-03-2019 10:28 AM

I can't decide if I like it.

Looks to be fairly well-done, though.

This years Ridler award...

The finished car is not my cup of tea, and the color is hideous. That said operations performed to achieve this are supremely difficult, impossible to most body men, plus the craftsmanship is unparalleled. The fit and finish flawless.

Diaphone Jim 03-06-2019 11:20 AM

There are some interesting cars at that show. Except for a couple (and not this one), they just don't interest me.
You have Ridler and Riddler; the first is right.

We have all wondered what your last name is.

Gravdigr 03-06-2019 11:41 AM

The 59 Caddy front end is one of the most beautiful things ever associated with cars.

I know, after I put the tag on the picture I discovered the proper spelling. But being a lazy sloth I didn't go back to fix it.

Yeah, I wish it was Meyer. :rolleyes:
