Just went into some detail about how I came up with suspension system upgrade candidates and how they were eliminated. Could be helpful to others who like to preserve old cars rather than crush them.
Nothing ever came of that story and I guarantee it was a hoax. There have always been snake oil salesmen and "inventors" claiming outrageous efficiencies in their designs but nothing ever comes of them. Then the conspiracy nuts think there is a cover up involved and come up with equally outrageous stories. You hear things like patents being forcefully bought out or how the inventor was arrested or his invention and patents/paperwork/computers confiscated by the government. Its all a big lie.
Drop three Holley 2 barrels on there and be done with it. That or drop in a twin 4 barrel intake but it sounds like you want to keep it original.
Yea, the hoax and conspiracy items are part of the humor. The other part is what you just did
Any of you fellow oldsters out there remember the story about the 100 MPG carburetor that The Man would not let us use because it would reduce petroleum consumption too much? I seem to remember hearing that over 30 years ago, and the story was that Big Oil bought the patent and kept it secret. That patent should be expired by now, and in the US patents are not renewable, so where the heck is the old patent? I'm restoring a classic car and havi
Being a gear head is so American, it probably makes you a raaaaacist.
In a way, of course. The way I mean is like that way that some people find big giant SUVs to be rich white soccer momish, yet the majority of them I see on the road, especially the largest ones, are driven by "people of color." Same with an old MOPAR. I learned how to adjust the carb, how to fix the dents, how to strip and prime it, and most everything else I needed to learn for that car from old black dudes at the hobby shop. One of those guys has a really cool 1970(?) Challenger with period correct NASCAR style mag wheels. Awesome car!
Old whitie is into Chevy and Ford.
No pix posted yet, but I finally started a blog for my aging 1972 318 Six-Pack Dodge Rallye Charger project.
It is not a complete cop-out. You see that the Democrats have more loyalty to their party than their sworn duty, in that they're no bringing a budget up to vote. I think that this is a direct effect of the 17th Amendment.
Yes, it is a complete cop-out and all of these Republicans pushing for this now will be squealing like stuck pigs when the Statehouses switch parties sometime in the future. If someone has as much power over your life as a US Senator, or the local dog catcher, they need to be subject to a direct election, not appointed by a bunch of people 200, or 2000 miles away, most of whom you never had any say in their election at all.
One of these days if I ever get to restore my Charger, I am making sure to paint the solar panel on the hood like this car. Guess I need to have one of those "Hybrid" badges made for it too Heck, if I ever get to the point where I can work on it again, I'll probably have my own CNC machine by then, lol.
I can see from a legislature map why the partisan Republicans are all for this idea. There is not argument for those who are for liberty to support it, and you certainly have not even attempted to make that argument.
So I guess it is a little too late for a meaningless boycott of a Russian Olympics as a show of dislike.
