      Well, just come to Louisville this weekend. It's the Street Rod Nationals!

      There are 10,000 hot rods in the area right now, at least 200 or so that are unusual and cool. Sure, that leaves 99,800...
    2. It's a "flop" because the back seat is small, but...

      It's a "flop" because the back seat is small, but the car itself is quite good. 36 mpg is nothing to sneeze at, either. Hell, I can't get that out of our Honda Fit, even when I drive it like a little...
    3. Since when is 185 slow? ;) cwidt?

      Since when is 185 slow? ;)

      cwidt?

      This is why we shouldn't do semi-important things (such as advertise a car you're asking $50k for) with your phone. :laugh:
    5. You mean when they were selling subpar small cars...

      You mean when they were selling subpar small cars and couldn't take advantage of people trading in their land barges to get something like a Cruze, Sonic or Spark? ...Or a Volt, or even a 36 mpg...
    6. You mean the vans from the '90s and early '00s?...

      You mean the vans from the '90s and early '00s? Really? Really?

      Both GM and Ford have undergone such transformation that they're barely recognizable when looked at with eyes from those times. But...

      ZOMG! I finally found a pic of the interior.

      http://img.webme.com/pic/w/word-veicles/6561584.jpg

      I knew it had to have a fairly flat dash because of the layout of the doors and whatnot, but for...
    8. What you did... It's there and I see it. :laugh:...

      What you did... It's there and I see it. :laugh: :beer:




      What has been seen cannot be unseen. I honestly didn't notice them at first glance, but now I see so much more than just the doors it...

      Sure, but his comment could easily be based on you calling yourself a luddite, even though electrics (having the exact same plug-in requirements) predate the streamline era. :beer:
    10. Oh no? Methinks you're not familiar enough with...

      Oh no? Methinks you're not familiar enough with the streamline era, then. There were a couple of designs with coefficients around .28 or so. Really. :beer:

      Why did it take so long to recreate...
    11. It's not that, it's the fact that you essentially...

      It's not that, it's the fact that you essentially have three headlight settings, which is against WWII era regulations. To keep cars from being offered with only one setting, it was mandated that...
    12. Fixed. :) :beer: Hot and dry climates are...

      Fixed. :) :beer:

      Hot and dry climates are fantastic for old project car guys. :) Indiana is not one of those places, though. :(

      I have a '59 Beetle shell stored inside here at work. It was...
    13. No, not really. I'm not one of those "It's...

      No, not really. I'm not one of those "It's perfectly balanced the way it is" types, but 300 hp in this car would be plenty. It's a different kind of car with 400+ hp and would have to have...
    14. :eek: I'd just go to Jiffy Lube and get an oil...

      :eek: I'd just go to Jiffy Lube and get an oil change every day. It'd be about $5.00 cheaper! :laugh:
    15. Wow. I suppose that's worse than my friend's...

      Wow. I suppose that's worse than my friend's story, though the end result is the same. I can't imagine being one of the parents. There would be very little keeping me from going to jail for the rest...
    16. Very much this. :thumbup: :beer: I'd say use...

      Very much this. :thumbup: :beer:

      I'd say use names, but if the cars have variations, use prefixes or suffixes to distinguish between them. No, I don't necessarily mean Coupe DeVille or Sedan...
    17. I doubt it, but I'll accept "darn close". It's...

      I doubt it, but I'll accept "darn close". It's quite possibly in the top three, though. "Break Free" is numero uno, but this stuff might be equivalent to Simichrome Polish, as these have been my top...

      Yeah, a friend/coworker of mine lost his 18 year old son because of an unsecured trailer that came loose. What do I mean by "unsecured"? Well, if you have a 2" trailer hitch and a 1 7/8" trailer...
    19. Dammit. I knew I wouldn't be the first one to...

      Dammit. I knew I wouldn't be the first one to post that. :laugh: :beer:

      I'm pretty good about staying away from rickety old trucks and unsecured cargo, but something that small could easily remain...

      No, it's one of convenience. Having one single button to keep the sides in-line is a simple thing and when either not driving with a passenger or driving with someone unfamiliar with the car...
