      Wasn't there something just recently about Matt Farah's new to him 900k Lexus having an FAA-rated motor that was used in aircraft? I'm in to see one of those.

      Had a car go up in flames once.

      W124 Mercedes Benz 300D straight 6 turbodiesel, first summer after getting my license at 16. Hot day (~100F), no A/C, sitting idle waiting for mom to go into...

      Hey now, I didn't say stencil, I said magnet (i.e. removable at a moments notice)





      I also have the same idea with the Ghostbusters logo, as a magnet. Even though it's not a retired Caddy...

      Very well said. Especially the last line, and the theory I was on about.

      I did think about the CSA "Rebel" flag while I was creating this thread.

      I chose to leave it off and stick with the WWII Axis powers as it was a little more relevant to the two part question/rant...

      Oh man, thanks for reminding me of the vacuum powered locks on my W124...

      WHIRRRRR THUNK-THUNK-THUNK-THUNK

      I'm kinda glad the fintail predates all that vacuum nonsense :laugh:
    7. AHA. That's the name! I've been calling it...

      AHA. That's the name! I've been calling it "Wehrmacht Iron Cross", that is the logo I was thinking of. I agree, I do not instantly correlate it as a "Nazi" symbol either. That's the idea I had with...

      I didn't expect this thread to keep going! No hate just informate :beer::beer: :thumbup::thumbup:



      :laugh: :beer:



      I knew that pre WWII the Japanese had bombed/attacked/occupied parts of...

      Key points for sure. Which is why I'm ranting about the hypocrisy of shaming one image's role in history and completely ignoring another with nearly the same backstory. I'm not trying to change the...

      I agree. Swastikas do not hold any sort of judgement from me either, nor KKK flags/relics.

      Unless they're specifically being used in some sort of hate group as they have previously in history...

      A 12x12" magnet of the Wehrmacht iron cross as seen above, (found on many Panzer/Panther/Tigers during...
    12. Hypocrisy, ignorance, and history: WWII-themed vehicles/art and symbology

      Something that "grinds my gears" so to speak.

      So during and prior to WWII, it was obviously a bad time for most of the world if you met certain criteria. Genocide, massacres, death camps, death...

      Depending on your dialect, "for f*cks sake"



      He's probably FFS'ing over the almost hoarder level of stuff in the car :laugh:

      No doubt that cleaning took awhile! Damn I love that red color....
    14. The car's been running pretty well on stock jets....

      The car's been running pretty well on stock jets. Though randomly I'll get hesitation and backfiring between 1800-2700rpm under load. Either timing or mix.

      I'm starting to price out wideband A/F gauge kits as a constant diagnostic tool. Asked friends if I'd need to space it like I've seen referenced with catless people and the rear 02 sensor, it appears...

      Thanks! There's so much pioneering work that's gone into this so far with "making this fit and work" and it's the biggest drive to keep me motivated to push forward with this.

      I'm on the fence...

      Pic dump from yesterday, photoshoot with Hardtail Sally and a local's rat Ghia! Best time I've ever had driving around town, everywhere we went people broke necks, thumbs up'd and walked over to look...

      I'd recommend at minimum the bolt ons- exhaust/tune/intake. As for cam, if I had stock cam I'd have some better lower end to use that torque at lower revs. I just don't think in stock form there'd be...

      All Benz! Nothing to report with the Jetta sadly. Waiting on money to fix the differential and steering angle sensor (I bought a used one which is the wrong part).

      But here's what's happened with...

      I believe W110 had options for the hydro pneumatic suspension as well. The options list for Heckflosse was quite impressive I thought- the shoulder belt was an option, seat headrests, rear armrest,...
