7 Months

7 Months

That’s how long I went without detailing my Mustang, let alone washing it. That’s a 7 month itch I couldn’t scratch until this weekend. And it only took 6 hours split over two days.

My Favorite Diecast Model

My Favorite Diecast Model

Surprisingly it’s not a Porsche. It’s one I picked up for $3 at a Mustang Swap Meet. This is a 1970 Matchbox Ford GT, made in England.

I just love the 48 years of patina, and the diecast engine detail is sweet.

I was thinking about “restoring” it maybe, I’ve just got no idea how. Regardless, I love it to death, and take it everywhere I go. It’s kinda like a good luck charm.

Turbo is OUT!!

Turbo is OUT!!

This wasn’t nearly as difficult a job as I thought now that I’ve done it. This is what the turbo looks like out of the car, and depending on your experience with turbos, this is either chonky, or small. My hand for reference below.

This thing was damn filthy with that oil leak and such. Oven cleaner is some nasty stuff. Have to wear a respirator for that but holy crap does it work better than...

Do you have a movie-famous car?

Do you have a movie-famous car?

Has your car been a primary feature in a movie? Did it ever make a notable appearance, or have a significant presence, or moment of importance? I'll go first. A red '83 944 was prominently shown besides Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling) in the comedy, Sixteen Candles

How does this Bozo still have money?!?

How does this Bozo still have money?!?

He’s gone from supercharging things and going 200+ on Texas freeways to drag racing McLarens, one of which is actually his?!? Who’s still funding this? I want some of this coin!

From taillight to taillight. It was a pain masking the lights but so worth it.

SLC Superlight: I've never heard such a V10 Noise

SLC Superlight: I've never heard such a V10 Noise

Seriously, just listen to it. First time I’d ever seen or heard of an SLC, but I saw one last night. And it’s amazing.

In Soviet Russia...

In Soviet Russia...

Porsche breaks YOU. In this case, it fractured my thumb...Here’s how. :/

Using this picture for reference, on almost all Porsche cars from the 60s-90s, they use a plastic ball socket on a threaded rod to adjust the length of travel of the linkage to open the door. One of mine snapped and got a new one today. I got both sides on without much trouble but the length was too short on the...

Yes, I went on the CarThrottle, and found this.

If you had to choose one...

If you had to choose one...

Which one would you take, and why? I’m gonna have to go with the XKSS. Everything I’ve just seen and read about it briefly, it’s the first classic roadster I’ve discovered on the internet since the BMW 507 that’s had me think “yes, I would max these out on Route 66 without a care.

Berlinetta Boxer

Why does Jalopnik (and maybe Oppo) dislike this car again?

$39 Lesson of the Day

$39 Lesson of the Day

Treat your torque wrench right, and you won’t screw yourself over. I needed to torque two banjo bols for the oil cooler lines for the turbo to the oil filter bracket at 41ft-lbs. One is above 41 and not broken, the other one is above.

I never knew how to maintain a torque wrench until it was too late and this accounts for the many times I’ve sheared heads off bolts and such. I never set it...

Classes Cancelled Tomorrow

Classes Cancelled Tomorrow

Because excessive snow and wind chills and whatever. I’m still going to work tomorrow and probably will workout (again). I just hope this weather doesn’t affect the shipment of parts I need to start putting my car back together.

We're Getting a Pony!

We're Getting a Pony!

Went to check out the ‘87 LX this evening. It’s exactly as advertised and we’re gonna try and get it home by Monday latest. :)

Also, this is by car the best Craigslist experience I’ve ever had, especially because it’s the first and only one!! The owner is a true car guy. You won’t believe until we go back to pick it up, but he’s got a Candy Apple Red Boss 429 stored away in his garage. I...

2016 Mustang GT/CS 

2016 Mustang GT/CS 

Spotted in convertible form yesterday. You can see the CS grill, and new wheels.

Personally, I think it’s alright, but I don’t think it looks as good as the S197 CS. Seeing as the S550 is less retro than the S197, I just don’t think it works as well. I also find the tribar badge to be too big and out of place in a strange way.

I do love the black grill; however, to me it looks rather cheap...
