Is that image flipped?

No, if it was flipped the numbers would be backward.

The top image looks flipped because it is the backside of the dash panel--supposedly this guy removed the whole thing and put those bits of paper behind the cutouts before closing it up again.

They say "Post-it notes" but I think they mean Post-it tape flags.

edit: and even if they don't mean that, I think the tape flags would work better. More vibrant.

Yes, can't show the backside without flipping it over or up.

Unfortunately, the colored part of the tape flag isn't sticky.

How the fuck would you see the back side if it wasn't flipped? :facepalm:

These were cool but didn't happen...

They are slick looking.. I can see the Corvair in the first two, but the bottom two... some kind of Pontiac, from the split grille and the badge/emblem on the left rear fender in the bottom image. But what Pontiac?

xoxoxoBruce 10-14-2018 03:12 AM

Pontiac LeMans.

Oh a Corvair. My grandfather had one in Miami, FL. He carried 3 fan belts. He would be driving and it would flip off somewhere and he would stop and put on a new one.

We lived in New Orleans and met him in Belmont where the Perry's hail from. Everything was sweet until we got to the blue ridge. That little car couldn't make it up the hills. They removed their luggage and put it in my father's Buick. The little car still couldn't make it. My granddaddy was a GM man, but when he got back to Miami he traded it in for a Tbird.

Apparently the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport is a pretty good car.

If ya can keep wheels on it. No, not tires, wheels.

In 40,000 miles wheels were bent or cracked ten (10!:3_eyes:) times.

Quote:

In all, we spent $4098 on wheel repair and replacement-seven repairs and three replacements, for an average failure rate of once every 4000 miles.
