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

Car came in overheating so bad I could hear the oil boiling like a deep fryer inside the engine. Blew the radiator hose and neck off the radiator. Must have been like 400 degrees!

inb4 "it actually survived without issue somehow"

 

but I'm prob wrong it'll be more like "yeah about the cylinder head... nope. It's done"

Nah man, it's junk. A few hours later I had to move it and it was a very hard start. Even if the head gasket wasn't blown (it surely is) that oil was thinned out so bad there's bottom end damage for sure. The thing sounded like a diesel in the parking lot and left a big puddle of oil from the turbo area, it cooked whatever seals were leaking back there externally and probably internally too now. In other words, it's fucked.

Dude had a stroke a number of years ago and he's got his vocal skills back but he's got the mind of a toddler I swear. Just started shouting 'FIX MY CAR' at me and his wife stepped in to tell him that it's not fixable. Guy looked like he was ready to start throwing punches at me from how he was glaring at me! Look dude, the 21 year old radiator gave up. I explained that had they stopped the engine within a minute or two it might have been salvageable but not now. Part of me really thinks that she let him ruin the car so he couldn't drive anymore, he really shouldn't be.

i mean if he's still capable of driving a car, there is no need. unless he presents a danger to others on the road.

the Civic

 

after my last BMW, thats a big fat hell to the F*CK NO!  the only BMW I'd consider buying is something new or very slightly used and low mileage that I can sell before warranty expires.  which basically puts them out of my price range

 

(not hating on E39 M5's, they're awesome, but used BMW maintenance and parts and electronics and plastic everything meant to break apart instead of disassembling so you have to buy a new part can go suck a big fat one)

Busy Day.  I wrapped the spoiler riser blocks and mirrors in carbon vinyl.  Re-painted the wing and still managed to get done claying and waxing most of the car.  Also installed some LED shop lights in the garage to replace the slowly dieing fluorescent that where in there.

98 Volvo turbo, nothing good or exciting.

 

I really don't think he should be driving, physically capable and mentally capable are different. He's about at toddler level mentally I think man. I could imagine him dealing with police and getting tased or shot.

Heh,

 

I am no stranger to repair bills on an Italian exotic (I've own many Alfas, Lancias, Abarths, Fiats and Maseratis and my current project Ferrari) but the sorting out of a grey-market Delta scares the crap out of me. I suspect that car will go north of 40k just at auction, plus another ~20k in repairs...IF it can be at all. Read some of the comments, the seller seems to be hiding something about the rust and or engine rebuild. That engine detonates under load and it'll eat the entire front end.


So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

Damn that's a shame. I want to have a picture frame with a $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, and $500, and a $1,000 if they actually made those in my office when I have my own house, all in a line. I think that'd be cool.
