    Enamel or BC/CC paint

    Sorry if you took my rant as an assault on you, it was not, merely an observation based on experiences.I will say this however, the problems in factory applied automotive finishes like your GM fiasco are hardly rare, or over. Other fiasco's include Chrysler's in the late 80's, GM again in the...

    Enamel or BC/CC paint

    A little off topic and a bit of a rant but...It is better in the sense that it is easier to apply, has a higher initial gloss, and is easier to repair, but they do not have the 'longevity' of the older systems, and nor do they need it nowadays, as it's all about polishing your apples.In my...

    Porsche Panamera

    Closer to home.I never did understand this four-door either. A disgrace to the vintage Charger muscle car badge. I don't get it.

    2011 SD -- Less Camo Shots

    The wrap-around headlight cluster is a MAJOR improvement over previous years' 'stacked' version. The grill however, is getting a little stale.

    Knock, knock......BKW, you there?Guess not. After checking his profile, he hasn't been around here since March. Unfortunate really, Bill is a major asset to the site.Try a PM Paul, he may have the email forwarding function turned on.

    Drove a badass car last night...

    I think that's one of the reason he doesn't come here anymore!!!:headbang:The BIGGER crank pulley will spin the blower FASTER for a few more pounds of boost until he needs to upgrade the blower like DNF stated in his post.Jack said that's about it though on stock rods and stock blower...

    What is the reason for this?

    I'm 99% positive that is a Utah GVW rating. I have seen other older trucks at car shows from Utah with this also, usually painted on. Although the truck was rated by Ford for only 7400 lbs. max GVW, it was not uncommon in 'farm country' to see them rated higher by their owners.

    Let's see some of our rigs on here!

    Here's a pic of my newly acquired '57. I bought her from a little 90 year-old woman who only drove her to church on Sundays. She's got only 28K original miles. Yeah, she's a little rough around the edges, but nuthin' a little paint, tires, and new glass wont fix. Note the ORIGINAL Ford hubcaps...

    Clicking/clunking in trans

    Threads without answers

    Because (and I know this to be fact) they are reading them via a hack such as THIS. I was a victim of this hack. Be VERY careful of what you say in your PM's.

    Got to drive a 4.9L M5OD Today :)

    I've got an old '83 F150 with the 300/T-19 combo -indestructible drive train......the body will rust off the frame, but indestructible drive train. :D

    License Plates

    I rarely agree with you Tex, but I do here.*checks temperature, schedules CAT Scan*Law enforcement agencies will challenge the practice of swapping-out a plate for a custom version, and dangling one below, or sticking it in your rear window is silly IMO.Go with the frame.

    Exact same issues with my 7.3. Fragged the tranny however three months ago, but at 160k, I've been very satisfied.Major cons: -No rear seat cup holders (my '93 had'm???) -No rear seat heating/AC vents (WTF???)
