      Always has been for every vehicle class since forever ago. What's your point?

      Oh, that's right, you're a troll. Never mind.

      Ouch indeed. Will they actually still be selling on reputation or will their sales start to plummet? Sure, there are lots of loyal Tacoma and Toyota buyers out there, but how long can this old truck...

      Or he could cut the valve cover in half, powder coat the halves and weld that together. OK, OK, so he'd have to paint a stripe on it, so what? :P

      Hey, I can blame it on being a typo, cuz spell checker sure wasn't going to help with that one. :laugh:

      Oh, and I forgot to say "bitch". ;) :beer:

      Golf Yellow. All other answers are wrong, though I'll accept Inka orange in a pinch......

      Right.

      No Bono on Pono, Bono on Nano.

      Good! :) :beer:

      I woulnd't think you'd want one, but I've heard stranger stuff (See: Rear-drive Golf conversion during 2-week stint home from college that didn't go so well. :eek:)



      D'oh! I...

      While I disagree with him that an LS engine is "Spam", I'd never try it in a nice air-cooled 911, as just about any water-cooled conversion I've seen has issues I'd never want in any of my cars.

      Because he brought it up in the first post without mentioning that it was (nearly) impossible?



      this statement implies it was at least a consideration.

      As to why my initial post had RWD...

      Yeah, and my Bug weighs a little under 1700 lb. but that doesn't have anything to do with manufacturing a car in the last couple of decades either.

      While its much smaller, I'd much rather crash a...

      That crank has 8 main bearings so there's no way it moves around enough to cause Rod failure or even a side load on the rod. The cases are aluminum on later models such as this, so they're waaaaaay...

      There's a reason lots of S10s have had small blocks put into them. They're cheap, reliable, easy to do and can make gobs of power. I'd imagine you could buy mounts from a variety of sources, too.

      That is the big end of a rod sticking through the top of the case. It was likely from a bad Rod bearing (but there should have been warning sounds/low oil pressure to indicate a problem) or the rod...

      The closest thing to a supercar in my collection would be a longhood 911. I tend to go for cars built from the late '40s through the '70s, with some (especially Japanese) exceptions in the '80s. Give...

      Hmmm... I wonder what a good Mk III TDI goes for. They're much simpler, get good mileage (50ish on the freeway) and still have enough torque to broil the hides from a stop if you wish.

      I think in your situation I'd get a boring high mileage car to go along with what you have now. Drive the $5,000 beater and if it fails you still have the GLI (now your weekend car) and don't put...

      My advice? Get a Bluetooth module that goes in-line with the radio antenna and stick it out. It's a nice car and isn't giving any trouble, so if the seats are tolerable then just drive it and drive...
