      Nice collection!
      Could you post info about the Boss Wagon?

      I grew up riding in the back of an early '80s Volvo wagon. I loved it, but my parents didn't (CIS injection trouble).

      It's funny, that since you stared this thread I had forgotten about this generation explorer. I don't see many of them around here.

      I picked up a 2013 F150 4x2. Luckily it was option with a LSD and V8. I've owned 4WD vehicle before and never need the capability.
      I'm ok with it.

      On friday I filled the tank with some well-deserved non ethanol gasoline. I thought I'd lost any local access to any, but found some. Lots of folks call it "boat gas" around here.

      My EP3, when cold, wouldn't fully engage reverse until I put the transmission in first to "roll" it some. I think the manual stated this too.

      Sounds like fun. I almost, but didn't due to a technical problem, drive from South Carolina to California in a Oldsmobile Delta 88 diesel.

      I installed the 034 motor mounts I bought a few weeks ago. For the last few years I've been using E30 motor mounts. They're good, but the end of the oxygen sensor hits the front subframe. The 034...

      Barry,
      I have been concerned about the safety of the seat belts in my 1966 MGB. They're lap belts and they're original to the car. When I do drive the B, I stick to less traveled roads. I remember...

      Ziddey.
      I recall using the original ball joint bracket when I installed new ball joints. I remember having to "angle" them in because of the proximity of the cv axle boot. Or something like that.

      Thanks for the info!
