Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Dash cover + Airbag = Bad time.

It's not supposed To go down in front of the dash, just sit on top...?

 

edit: crash=bad time anyways

 

and it won't cover the drivers airbag anyway :P

could also have it altered for a cover for the passenger airbag if it does cover it

It can work if it doesn't cover much of the dash. The passenger airbag is fairly large on the E39.

There's ones out there that won't though. I almost bought one for my s10 that didn't have cut outs for the speakers on the dashboard but noticed before.

Washed my truck a lil bit today. Not only did I hose it off I went the full 10 yards and got the squeegee out and scrubbed on it and got most of the dirt and bugs off of it. Got all the trash out of it too. Taking a girl out to lunch tomorrow so I put a little bit extra effort into it. :) Need to go to the gas station and get the ones with wiper fluid in the bucket to get the windshield the rest of the way done. Wish me luck bois.

It's a saab so I have no idea. (I hear they are expensive to repair and stuff). Even though it's in good shape, it still may be smarter to go with a cheap japanese car. I don't know what your budget is long-term so not much I can say. All up to you.

 What is that thing? I want one lol. I'd totally go to school with that on tuesdays/thursdays with the crazy traffic xD

(like i said before I live in Louisiana, no one would care)

it looks like an old vespa piaggio, pretty common here. (it is originaly 50cc but judging from the title that isnt 50cc)

pic of what i think it is:

Random question...

 

How many times can you bondo/epoxy seal a leaky rad before you need to get it replaced?

the most i have tried was aprox. 40 times (old beat to shit 125cc 4 stroke dirtbike wich had a radiator located behind the front wheel without anything protecting it)

i dont know how many times the last owner had done this but probably quite a lot.... i ended up replacing it with a rad of of a yamaha 250 quad and using the radiator shield/cover from that.

Enough to where it would be more cost effective to order a new one.

Well I had a big long post I was working on about my mini lst and then I tried to delete a video with the backspace and instead it sent me back (because I don't have access to the chrome update to stop that) and now it's all gone.  Not going to try to do all the pics and text again so here's some youtube action of it.

 

 


There's something cool here - you just can't see it.

what gen camaro would you prefer?

i personaly prefer the 1967 z28, im not that big of a fan of the newer gens, some of the newer ones are okay but the 1967 z28 is by far my favorite.

1967-Camaro-Z28.jpg

i like the smaller more "nimble" look that this car has, it isnt small but it isnt huge either.

(plus, its not a killer like a certain other car within its class :P)

Second gen

1920px-1971_Camaro_SS.jpg

I just love how they look. 

If i was getting a first gen it would have to be an SS or a yenko.

But i like most of them. Even the new ones. 

A sixth gen ZL1 would be nice. 

 

In other news. Its 30*C outside right now and i can't enjoy it because i'm sick.. 

Would've preferred to be working right now though.

There are some where you can get a flap and when the bag goes off, the flap opens and allows the bag to activate. that's how it is on all my cars.

i actually like the first gen and the current gen. if anything, i'd put some modern touches in a first gen camaro.

Here's the pic as promised. Threw it on when I got to school (which took 50 minutes for 7 miles  today -_-)

 

Still a bit of morning dew on it from when I took it off at home. Shook it off but there was a lot lol, hope it doesn't slowly soak my trunk over time. So that's one aggravating thing about it. 

 

But it it's so quick to throw on/take off I love it.

I know I've seen a lot of this generation of Saab around the area so I'd imagine that there would be some at local junk yards to pick parts off of if need be so that's not too big of a deal. I'm not too familiar with Saabs other than the 9-3 they made which was basically a WRX in disguise. I'm more just trying to find out if this is a reliable car, I know it'll be really practical and all

It's a super nice interior compared to damn near any American car I've been in let alone for $2400, what I really like is its got a sunroof, 4 wheel discs, and not just leather seats but heated seats all around. I don't know of anything else that would be this equipped for the price, it's not aero model but it'll get the job done.

heated seats all around? mmmm that'd be amazing for cold weather for you and 3 other passengers.
