Re: oil. filters

I've driven about 1.5 million miles in my life on the freeways of LA. 480,000 of them have been in one car still with its original, un-rebuilt engine (5.0) all with Motorcraft FL-1As. (Ok - one takes an 820S and only has 130,000 miles) They've been $3.97 at Wallyworld for about 20 years. Best 4 buck...

Re: Cougars at 2019 All Ford Nationals

Yeah - and it looks like they stuck the Cougars out by the Fairmonts. Probably so they wouldn't show up the Mustangs! ;) But really - 50 Cougars is a great showing! What’s up with this new trend of painting a Mustang green and calling it a bullitt? One of the dumber things I’ve seen. It's like putti...

Re: It's over for me...

A few thoughts from a lifetime of beating on old cars. 1) Don't give up. 2) Old cars are fun. This is a mantra my family goes into every time we are at the point of throwing wrenches in frustration. Walk away and come back after you've completely cooled off. 3) You need help. You've done a ton of wo...

Re: WOW a W-code for sale

Description says 4-wheel discs. I understand your rustlust. The car is bad a$$. Considering I had a quote of $80-100K for a full restoration at a well-known shop, that is a reasonable asking price for the car. Somebody with the means to buy it is going to be driving around with a big grin on their f...

Re: Funny sign

I love it! But Zora Arkus-Duntov said the way forward for GM was to capture the youth movement. Is it coincidence that the small-block Chevy fit perfectly inside the engine compartment of a '32 Ford, the most hot-rodded car ever? I think not, especially after what the hotrodders did at the lakes wit...
