Why you don't use a 50 year old fuel tank

Pulled my 70 XR7 out of storage and started the resuscitation. The car has been in storage for 30 years and only moved when we purchased our current place 15 years ago Removed the fuel tank and drained 3 litres of old foul smelling gas (petrol to those who still speak English) Filled the tank with w...

Re: A newbie question on bringing back a 70 xr7

Wow! Kudos for tackling the transmission rebuild. That's all voodoo magic to me.

Re: Show us your diecast Cougar!

Years ago there was a super detailed (and expensive) 1/18 die cast of the '67 Penske Trans-Am Camaro available. I remember looking at how realistic the American Racing mags were on that thing.

Re: Electric cars are a short circuit - long article

One of my biggest concerns, although I will be fertilizer before it happens, is the oil stockpiles in Indonesia.

The Summit model is described as having a 428 Cobra Jet engine, but the air cleaner says 302 Boss.
All the 70 Eliminator diecast are Boss 302

... and the correct washer bottle
