How to confirm mileage?

How to confirm mileage?

Hey guys, the Yukon I went to see the other day was a complete bust. And by that I mean the frame was busted and rusted lol. I walked away from it.

Now I’ve got a lead on an 04 Suburban that’s marked as 90,000 miles...but the carfax has it up at 176,000 as of 2 years ago. Dealership is saying that’s gotta be an error and they are inspecting it now.

If the mileage is real they’re only asking...

MontegoMan Might by a Non-Mercury

MontegoMan Might by a Non-Mercury

I might actually buy a non-Mercury. It’s weird. For a road-vehicle I haven’t bought a non-Mercury for myself in close to a decade.

I was going to chase down a Mountaineer but it sold and a remarkably nice 2003 Yukon XL appeared. It’s a 2003 GMC Yukon XL 4x4 with about 105,000 miles. I’m making a choice to keep it car payment free and get something I can handle paying cash for which I’m sure...

So I hysterically looked of Ford Probe’s thinking cheap RWD FWD manual and found an AWESOME AD. (EDIT: this cold is hitting me harder than I thought it was, of course it’s FWD.)

I wonder if the plate can stay with the car?

UAW Wages

UAW Wages

So I wanted to share some of the discussion and facts about UAW worker wages because of some of the comments on the FP.

New proposed wages are going to be $25 an hour for lower tier and $30 for senior, higher level workers. Apparently that’s not enough money to do a job that doesn’t require higher education. I’m not trying to say that this job isn’t important, or easy. My mother in law was on...

Anyone want an Excursion V10?

Anyone want an Excursion V10?

This is SHOCKINGLY rust free and the interior appears to be in immaculate shape, not really my style on the seats but damn, it’s a lot of not rusty truck.

Biggest complaint is the terrible tail light replacements.

I normally go to this dealer site kind of as a joke, they have some hysterically odd ball vehicles at time, I used to live in that...

Just wanted to remind everyone of how awesome these seats are in the Ford Expedition Platinum.

It may cost as much as a small house, but damn the seats are gorgeous.

MontegoMan's Water Toys are Laughing at Him!

MontegoMan's Water Toys are Laughing at Him!

Remember when I started the last post out with them being fixed “For now.”?

Ha. Hahahahaha. The Fanny Pack Duo mocks me.

The Polaris (aka Fanny) needs a top end rebuild. I just got around to the compression test on it last night. When I did the test when we first bought them it was at 120, 120, 70. I knew it wasn’t great. I also mentioned in the last post that my wife told me the warning light...

MontegoMan Fixed his Water Toys!

MontegoMan Fixed his Water Toys!

For now.

Old Jet Ski’s (...yes I know that neither of them are Kawasaki Jet Ski’s...) always need some kind of work or maintenance...BUT I FIXED IT! I completed the engine swap on the Yamaha WaveRaider 760 (aka Pack) and re-did the whole fuel system. I got it started up Friday night and we went out Saturday!

This was my first ever full engine swap by myself in a vehicle. I’ve pulled and rebuilt...

Best CL Post Photoshop EVER

Best CL Post Photoshop EVER

So I was browsing through the ATV/UTV section because I think some of those 1000cc side by sides look like they would be a god damn riot out on a trail and someone posted a pair of wave runners in there

OK, wait. What’s that?

Is that just a leg?!

Someone clone stamp tooled the siding over a person to not show them on the waverunner.

Fantastic.

Dash Mounted Rear View Mirrors

Dash Mounted Rear View Mirrors

Hey OPPO’s! Who made cars with dash mounted rear view mirrors? I’ve got a new desk at my new job at work and I want a cool mirror so I can see who the F keeps sneaking up on me!

Yes I know I could flip over almost any other mirror, but the idea of a rear view that was originally dash mounted just sounds cool.

Hit me with some ideas! Thanks OPPO!

Lincoln Aviator - thoughts?

Lincoln Aviator - thoughts?

A used one popped up and I’m really into it. I’m not thrilled about the idea of 18 mpg + premium fuel, but it’s really cool. Same motor as the Mach 1 Mustangs/Mercury Marauder, 4.6L. Over 300 HP and don’t have to worry about the 5.4L.

The one for sale is a Dark Blue one from 05 with only 88k miles. Sounds like it’s been babied. No accidents on carfax. Oh and it’s a hair under $8,000.

What do...

Update on the Yamaha WaveRaider 760

Update on the Yamaha WaveRaider 760

Hi Everyone, the last title for an update about the water toys affectionately referred to as the Fanny Pack I had UH-OH in the headline.

That was an understatement.

So, after seeing the completely destroyed 2nd cylinder in the Yamaha I ordered a remanufactured motor from SBT, the biggest name in watercraft jet motors. It came in last week and I started the process on Friday of removing the old...

So I posted earlier this week how I was interested in that Lincoln Aviator. It was a great deal and better priced than even the Explorers and Mountaineers in the area.

Applied for a kickass new job

Applied for a kickass new job

Same company, same industry - Automotive Advertising.

I applied to be a Product Specialist.

I interview internally on Monday morning and I’m really hoping I can make this switch.

I mean, the job is literally to be a car expert. How awesome is that?
